8 You You(L) 124 Franco 2-8-4 Brown 3-1

Unforced is speedy and gets confident price hike for barn that does best work with runners moving up the ladder. Spango delivered solid efforts in both starts; logical, short-price player. Bad to the Roan made forward move in last start; dangerous.

7 Los Borrachos(L) 123 Velasquez 10-1-2 Mott 4-1

Los Borrachos worked two times since being overmatched in the Wood last time; rebounds today. Bay of Plenty has tallied fast figures in all three starts and is training sharply for return from 46-day freshener. Roman Approval makes stateside debut for Mike Hushion; stay tuned to the tote.

8 Sacred Success(L) 120 Maragh 2-3-4 Gyarmati 15-1

Your Time Is Up returns from 47-day freshener and projects as the main speed. She's Stones Sis also is fleet of foot and makes peak start of form cycle. Bird House runs late and could be in the catbird seat if top pair hook up on the lead.

8

1 1/4 Mile. (Inner Turf). Allowance. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $77,000.

1 Auld Alliance(L1) 124 Velazquez 3-5-1 Motion 5-2

5 Adriatic Dream(L) 124 Velasquez 7-1-3 Donk 6-1

6 Long Blooming Rose(L) 117 Mejias 4-1-4 Levine 20-1

Precarious could capitalize on unchallenged lead in compact field that's light on speed. Adriatic Dream needs front-end help but 10-furlong trip could play to strength. Auld Alliance makes stateside debut for Graham Motion; must be factored into the mix.

9

1 Mile. (Widener Turf). Claiming $25,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $47,000.

2 Kate Is a Ten(L) 120 Chaves 5-4-3 Parker 30-1

10 Magma(L) 120 Lezcano 6-3-9 Miranda 30-1

11 Implied(L) 122 Rosario 1-5-8 Cibelli 2-1

Ryan entry: Cotton Pickin was a hard-charging winner in last and mate Mistie Royale owns fast final fractions on turf; just one goes with Lezcano listed on both. Implied tallied solid final late pace figure when winning last at GP; very dangerous. Manero is fleet-footed and could prove very dangerous on a soft lead. Off My Cloud moves to turf and makes third start since two-month layoff; worth a look.
