8Composition(L)122Ortiz, Jr4-1-5Clement3-1

Puzzling was pace and trip compromised when a clear-cut second in last; more to come. Sweet and Lovely logged one of two career wins on Belmont sod and is training strongly for first start in 47 days. Stanwyck arrives from SoCal and fired 5-furlong bullet for local debut.

Majestic Raffy stretches to suitably longer trip and should move forward in second start since nine-month absence. Mister Pippit is riding a two-race winning streak for Chad Brown; very dangerous. Finale gets class relief and is 1-for-1 on Belmont turf.

10Saturday Appeal(L)117Ortiz, Jr1-8-8Schosberg3-1

Northern Tripp made sustained rally when a strong second in last; added ground plays to strength. Unprecedented was empty last time but packs potent late kick on best. Liquidity Trap is training consistently for first start since Jan. '12; more than good enough on 'A' game.

6Crushin Rock(L)122Maragh2-2-4Levine7-2

Longfor the City tallied fast late pace figure when breaking maiden last out. Cay to Pomeroy is speedy and will prove a tough customer on a soft lead. Crushin Rock almost always fires strong efforts; right in the thick of this.

8Crackerjack Jones(L)119Alvarado2-x-xHushion3-5

Greeley Pack earned solid number when a clear-cut second in last; rates call based on price potential. Crackerjack Jones has been sidelined for 53 days since besting top selection by six lengths in debut; could easily romp. Sunnysider was just half-length behind 'Greeley' when a tough-trip third on May 25; must consider.

10Hundred Acre Wood(L)122Ortiz, Jr5-1-3Sciacca4-1

Wholelottashakin logged both lifetime wins on Belmont turf and notched three tight works for first start since November. Downtown Hottie makes peak start of form cycle and packs potent late kick on 'A' game. Lady's Lunar Luck raced wide versus tougher in last; big-time threat.

10Delightful Dawn(L)122Cohen3-2-4Jacobson7-2

E Z Passer is speedy, rested and fired 5-furlong bullet last week; primed and ready. Delightful Dawn makes first start since claimed by DAS/Jacobson; very dangerous. Chance Encounter was a game second as the public's choice in last; logical, short-priced player once again.

6Hardened Wildcat(L)121Castellano2-1-5Brown2-1

Hardened Wildcat was clear-cut second in Pim stakes last time and consistently logs field's fastest final fractions. Strapping Groom makes first start for DAS/Jacobson after ultra-game placing in last. Big Business is 4-for-4 at Belmont and owns swift numbers; could easily take this.

10Antone Suavey(L)124Velasquez8-6-5Quartarolo3-1

Slimshady logged improved final fraction in last and should have more to give in third start of form cycle. Double O One owns speed and gets favorable cutback to sprint. Antone Suavey gets class relief and owns fast figs on best efforts. Poppy's Watching logged three tightly grouped works since last start; right in the thick of this.
