9 Almost an Angel(L) 118 Solis 3-6-8 Ward 4-1

Main Track Only

10 Majestic Marquet(L) 118 Velasquez 1-4-1 Rodriguez 4-1

Cotton Pickin displayed out of the blue speed in last and could be sitting on breakthrough with return to turf. Win for Kitten packs solid late kick and will be in the catbird seat if pace meltdown ensues. Runway Ready is fleet-footed and training sharply for first start in 48 days; dangerous.

6 Furlongs. Claiming $20,000. 3&up. Purse: $40,000.

1 Take Down Two(L) 122 Velazquez 3-3-1 Contessa 5-1

6 Roman Invasion(L) 122 Velasquez 1-3-7 Jacobson 5-2

7 Sensational Slam(L) 122 Cohen 8-8-1 Quick 10-1

Rigby is 3-for-5 at Belmont Park and makes first start since claimed by Rudy Rodriguez. Roman Invasion bested a next-out winner when a clear-cut victor for this price in last; big-time threat. Take Down Two makes peak start of form cycle for white-hot gary Contessa barn; right in the thick of this.

6 Clear Pasaj(L) 120 Ortiz 2-2-1 Levine 5-1

7 Go Unbridled(L) 120 Alvarado 4-4-3 Jerkens 5-2

Miss Valentine logs fast late pace figures on best efforts and fired 5-furlong bullet for first start since December. Clear Pasaj is speedy and will prove very tough on a soft lead. Go Unbridled gets class relief and packs powerful stretch wallop on 'A' game.

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). Allowance. 3&up. Purse: $77,000.

1 Arc Above(L) 122 Rosario 2-4-4 Clement 8-1

9 Baker Street(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 2-2-1 McLaughlin 3-1

10 Gun Point(L) 116 Espinoza 5-8-1 Ryan 30-1

Lead Singer was a determined winner the first time he touched the turf; more to come. Draw Too was a fast-figured winner on Belmont sod last fall and is working strongly for return. Arc Above tallied only career win on Belmont grass; very dangerous. Happy Fella makes third start of form cycle; price will be tempting.

6

1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf). Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $79,000.

3 Deanaallen'skitten(L) 122 Lezcano 1-2-1 Brown 5-2

10 Thisizsparta(L) 122 Castellano 1-5-9 Jerkens 6-1

11 Zaphyra(L) 122 Maragh 3-1-4 Levine 5-1

1a Clarinda(L) 122 No Rider 3-3-1 Clement 12-1

2b Flash Forward(L) 116 No Rider 8-1-4 Schettino 6-1

Floral Romance tallied swift final fraction when winning on GP sod in December; rates close based on price potential. Deanaallen'skitten was a fast-figured winner last time and logged five tight works in the interim; could easily take this. Zultanite was pace and trip compromised in last and Dave Donk barn is off to strong start at new meet; don't ignore.

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). Maiden Claiming $20,000. 3&up. Purse: $29,000.

Main Track Only

12 Dapper Draper(L) 124 Velasquez 2-5-x Rice 3-1

13 Taylor Jagger(L) 106 Franco 8-5-x Esler 6-1

Bundestag is 0-for-16 but owns field's fastest turf numbers; must take the good with the bad. Polaris Dream returns to turf and could be sitting on wakeup in third start of form cyle. I Captivate Myself displayed newfound speed in last; front-end threat. Fluent hails from the scorching Mike Maker barn; must consider.

6 Furlongs. Allowance Optional Claiming. 3yo. Purse: $72,000.

1 Retreive(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 7-1-2 Englehart 3-1

2 Whatabouthonor(L) 118 Castellano 3-1-x Mareina 8-1

3 Carried Interest(L) 118 Rosario 2-2-2 Violette, Jr 4-5

4 Lawn Man(L) 118 Velazquez 8-1-x Pletcher 4-1

5 Killin Me Smalls(L) 118 Alvarado 4-3-1 Asmussen 15-1

Retreive gets favorable cutback to 6 furlongs after succumbing to sizzling splits in Bay Shore last time; main speed. Carried Interest logs fast figs with machine-like consistency but owns three seconds from four starts; continues trend? Lawn Man is firing bullets for first start since September; must respect.

9 Corinthian Summer(L) 118 Rosario 3-2-x Clement 3-1

10 Federal Agent(L) 118 Castellano 2-6-2 Penna, Jr 4-1

Main Track Only

11 Speechmaker(L) 118 Alvarado 3-4-x Mott 7-2

12 Olympian(L1) 118 Lezcano x-x-x Bond 4-1

Federal Agent was pace and trip compromised when a game second behind a repeat winner in last; bred to handle 10-furlong trip. Forever Thing logged three tight works since besting a next-out winner when second last time; very playable. Hardest Core is working sharply for first start with Lasix; very interesting. For the Ages has the benefit of the rail in big field; don't ignore.
