11 Seven Dreams(L) 113 Franco 1-4-6 Araya 3-1

5 Rein King(L) 121 Ortiz 5-1-3 Terranova,II 4-1

1a Congressional Page(L) 121 Alvarado 2-6-1 Jacobson 9-5

Ravalo was a clear-cut winner at this level 15 days ago; razor-sharp current condition trumps all. Cease drops and packs powerful late kick on best; dangerous. Rein King is speedy but has been on the bench for 158 days; must take the good with the bad.

5 Bileaps and Bounds(L) 120 Arroyo 10-9-7 Hertler 6-1

6 Raven Rise(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 12-5-4 Kimmel 2-1

Accomplish First adds blinkers, makes first start with maiden claiming tag and projects as the main speed with proper handling. Raven Rise also drops and compiled four tight works for return from 47-day freshener. Light Weight could be the prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues.

Main Track Only

10 Alysaro(L) 120 Velasquez 2-5-2 Schettino 8-5

Boardwalk Baron logged three closely grouped works since displaying improved speed in last start. Gridiron Great was a game second after wide trip in last; dangerous. Lion Keen gets class relief and has trained with a purpose since eighth in debut; improvement expected.

5

1 Cielo Soleggiato(L) 120 Arroyo 6-5-6 Schettino 6-1

10 A. M. Mayhem(L) 120 Velasquez 9-6-5 Brown 20-1

11 Got the Moves(L1) 123 Lezcano x-x-x Ward 15-1

Secret Soul logged tight work tab for first start in more than a year and makes first start with maiden claiming tag. Fastinov displayed newfound speed in last and will offer generous ticket; worth long look. Shortcoming is riding a forward line on the numbers and notched two works since last start; don't ignore.

1 Swell(L1) 115 Franco x-x-x Pugh 8-1

6 Freddie Freud(L1) 120 Ortiz, Jr x-x-x Antonucci 6-1

7 Slew's Brew(L) 120 Falk 5-8-3 Falk 15-1

Freddie G shows a work slate that culminated with eye-catching half-mile bullet; could be the goods. Polecat was a game second after taking heavy tote support in debut; could easily take this. Swell compiled sneaky-good work slate for first start; stay tuned to the tote.

Seven Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 2yo. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $70,000.

1 Social Affair 120 Saez 2-x-x McGaughey III 9-5

2 School Yard(L1) 120 Lezcano 8-x-x Mott 6-1

3 Theros 120 Ortiz 9-x-x McLaughlin 5-1

4 Gara Gattino(L1) 120 Castellano x-x-x Hennig 6-1

5 Gibson's Bullet(L1) 120 Maragh x-x-x Tagg 12-1

6 Danaus 120 Ortiz, Jr 4-6-x Albertrani 10-1

7 Double Whammy 120 Velazquez x-x-x McLaughlin 3-1

Theros was pace and position compromised in debut and hails from potent second-out stable. Danaus displayed improved speed in turf debut last out and should be aided by today's shorter trip. School Yard gets Lasix and is from a dam that's produced two turf winners; very interesting.

1 Tape It(L) 118 Alvarado 7-6-3 Adsit 5-1

8 Hamme Dancer(L) 121 Luzzi 6-6-7 Metivier 30-1

9 Ego Friendly(L) 113 Vargas, Jr 5-6-4 Kimmel 3-1

Harley returns to preferred footing and owns field's fastest late pace figures on best efforts. Mr Rodriguez owns speed and makes first start since claimed by Dominic Galluscio; very dangerous. Ego Friendly should pack intensified late wallop with turnback in distance; price will be tempting.

2 Mr Algebra(L) 121 Castellano 4-2-3 Rodriguez 5-2

9 Seeking Harmony(L) 118 Ortiz 1-2-2 Duggan 10-1

Main Track Only

10 Kitchi Warrior(L) 118 Rodriguez 2-6-8 Peebles 3-1

Hardrocker makes peak start of form cycle and owns fast final fractions on 'A' effort. Life's a Roar is fleet-footed and logged only win this course and trip last fall; worth long look at long price. Cashleigh was pace and trip compromised in last; big-time player. Seeking Harmony bested a next-out winner when breaking maiden on Del sod last out; don't dismiss.
