Forever Utopia logged two works since fast-figured second in last; more to give. Balderdash gets the meds after finishing just half-length behind top selection last time; could easily close the gap. Sam the Man I Am owns pedigree and running style that should be well served by switch to sod.

Likeusasafriend was victimized by rough start when third in debut; rates call based on price potential. Sky Crew has delivered strong efforts in all three starts; dangerous. House Rules logged three works in the span of 11 days in preparation for debut; very interesting.

5 Trail Walker(L) 118 Saez 1-3-1 Rice 5-2

6 Talent N Passion(L) 118 Ortiz 4-1-2 Toscano, Jr 4-1

Trail Walker wheels back in a hurry after determined score at this level 11 days ago; more in the tank. Laguna Girl is speedy and rested and will prove very tough on a soft lead. Seasoned Warrior logged six tight works for first start since June 30; don't dismiss.

10 G W's Hammer(L) 118 Saez 8-1-2 Hertler 15-1

1a El Oh El(L) 118 Cohen 6-4-7 Jacobson 2-1

Silent Thunder is training with a purpose for first start since claimed by DAS/Jacobson. Foggy Road tallied solid numbers when breaking maiden at the Spa on Sept. 2; big-time player. Indigene Charm wheels back on 10 days' rest and makes peak start of form cycle; price will be tempting.

Main Track Only

9 Tony D(L) 115 Franco 5-12-5 Cannizzo 3-1

10 King of Broadway(L) 120 No Rider 3-10-2 Mott 8-5

Inchcape logged strong seconds in both grass starts and now makes first outing since claimed by Jason Servis. Waynesborough was pace compromised when fifth in key race on Del sod two starts back and logged three tight works this month; worth long look. Secretive owns fast figures but has failed as the favorite in three of last four starts; must take the good with the bad.

Main Track Only

10 Canela Rose(L) 115 Vargas, Jr 3-5-10 Kelly 6-1

Transplendid was a touch short in the stretch when a game third last time; set for best in third start of form cycle. Uman Candy is riding a forward line on the numbers; very dangerous. Quiet Kiss has been victimized by wide trips in all three grass starts; right in the thick of this.

9 Miracle Maid(L1) 121 Velazquez 1-2-5 Brown 5-2

Main Track Only

10 And Why Not(L) 121 Saez 4-5-3 Matz 2-5

Medea tallied solid final fraction when breaking maiden with shocking ease last time; more to come. Industrial Policy endured rough trip when a fast-figured second last out; big-time threat. Win for Kitten was a solid second in last at Del and fired 5-furlong bullet on Tuesday; don't ignore. Sally's Dream holds sharp current condition and owns fast back numbers; must consider.

8 Merry Meadow(L) 118 Lezcano 2-1-1 Hennig 6-1

Saturday Nthe Park gets favorable cutback and projects as the speed of the speed with aggressive ride. Uno Duo is rested, fleet-footed and owns fast figures; very dangerous. Merry Meadow delivers strong efforts with machine-like consistency.

12 Southern Safari 123 Ortiz, Jr 3-1-2 Jerkens 3-1

Main Track Only

13 Barrister Jim(L) 113 Esquivel 1-2-5 Jacobson 1-1

Going Going Gone made wide rally when a hard-charging maiden winner last time; pairs up. Cross Gate failed to show customary speed last time and could be setting on bounce-back effort in third start since June. Holy Endeavor owns speed and fast figs on 'A' game. Antone Suavey could impact if fractions get fast and furious.

10 Angel de Amour(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 2-2-4 Gullo 6-1

11 Doc Cebu(L) 120 Velazquez 3-6-2 Pletcher 5-2

Inmyfathersimage was pace and position compromised in last and logged three tight works since claimed by Rudy Rodriguez. Bernie's Best packs solid late kick and owns fast final numbers on best efforts. Angel de Amour is fleet-footed and could prove very tough on an unchallenged lead. Doc Cebu makes first start with maiden claiming tag after failing as the favorite last time; short price once again.
