Money Fan gets class relief and was a top-figured third three starts back. Ignatius needed last and could wakeup for streaking Nick Zito barn. Shelby Dean almost always delivers strong efforts.

8 Bebes Passion(L) 124 Solano 7-5-5 Goberdhan 30-1

Sundae School was compromised by tough post when a late-running third in last; call based on price potential. Stage Name is fleet-footed and could play out as the main speed in turf debut. Raelyn Jane was a dominant winner in last at FL; worth long look.

Springcourt owns fast final fractions and logged three wins and two seconds in six starts at Belmont Park. Seeker makes first start since claimed by white-hot Gary Contessa barn. Romancing the Gold is rested and owns fast figures on best efforts.

8 Jigsaw(L) 117 Castellano 4-7-x Contessa 5-1

9 Peaceful Talk(L) 117 Montanez 3-4-x Gullo 15-1

Peaceful Talk adds blinkers and projects as the controlling speed in turf debut. In Speight Ofitall runs late and could be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Corinthian Summer was victimized by soft fractions in last; right in the thick of this.

9 Gombey Dancer(L) 124 Lezcano 4-6-3 Weaver 2-1

Image of Disco is speedy and compiled eye-catching work slate for first start since November. Bluegrass Springs owns fast late pace figures on best and logged two of three career wins on Belmont turf. Golden Rifle was a determined winner the first time he touched Belmont sod; dangerous.

8 North Slope(L) 120 Ortiz 4-6-7 McLaughlin 12-1

Start Jumping took backward step in last after top-figured score two starts back; rebounds. North Ocean owns speed and fast figures and could be ideally positioned in the stalker's seat. Sailmate notched all four lifetime wins at Belmont Park; don't ignore.

11 Saratoga Karaoke(L) 118 Velazquez 4-5-4 Domino 5-1

Camden Jane hails from potent layoff barn (Contessa) and could play out as the main speed with aggressive ride. Coralita is training with a purpose for first start since January and logged better-than-it-looks fourth on Belmont grass last fall. Aunty Pearl was a game second in last on Keeneland's Polytrack; very dangerous. Di Lissa makes turf debut for Linda Rice; must respect.
