10 Beautifulnightmare(L) 121 Studart 8-6-7 Friedman 30-1

Lea The Punisher makes peak start of form cycle and should be set for best. No Three Words is 1-for-1 at Belmont and logged four tight works since last start. Roman Renegade was an ultra-game second in last; dangerous.

Main Track Only

13 Our Mary Elizabeth(L) 118 No Rider 1-6-5 Baker 10-1

14 Princess Reyana(L) 111 Garcia 6-3-10 Persaud 20-1

Monticello Doll logged only career win on Belmont sod; call based on price potential. Zero Yield has finshed second in last two starts; continues trend? Rain Forest drops after regressing in last. La Billos should be aided by today's shorter trip. Silent Joy should pack amplified kick with cutback.

1 Mile. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. THE NASTY STORM. Purse: $85,000.

1 Tiz the Argument(L) 117 Velazquez 5-3-5 Dutrow, Jr 10-1

6 Withgreatpleasure(L) 121 Elliott 7-1-10 Nunn 20-1

7 Cash for Clunkers(L) 117 Garcia 7-2-1 Violette, Jr 7-2

All Due Respect drops and could play out as speed of the speed in contentious field. Awesome Feather has yet to taste defeat in nine starts but has been sidelined for 236 days and will offer paltry price. Cash For Clunkers is fleet-footed and fresh; dangerous.

11/16 Miles. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $39,000.

1 Worth a Buck(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 6-6-2 Miceli 5-1

15 Powhatan County(L) 121 Dominguez 6-9-8 Englehart 6-1

16 Settle for Medal(L) 121 Luzzi 8-3-9 Schosberg 8-1

Dual Citizen returns to claiming ranks after two-move fourth in last; more to give in second start since April. Short Shrift should move forward in third start since nearly yearlong layoff. Big Sky Posse is riding an improving line on the numbers; price will be tempting.

61/2 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $16,000. Purse: $26,000.

1 Blazing Arches(L) 118 Hernandez 5-3-6 Toscano, Jr 15-1

8 Passeporta(L) 113 Garcia 2-6-10 Kimmel 5-2

9 Dorothy's Spirit(L) 120 Dominguez 8-4-6 Brown 3-1

Raquel wheels back in a hurry and moves to dirt and could be sitting on breakthrough in weak field. Passeporta is lightly raced and drops two price levels; very dangerous. Langsyne also takes sizeable plunge; right in the thick of this.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Claiming $35,000. Purse: $39,000.

11 Devoted Wildcat(L) 118 No Rider 1-4-8 Asmussen 2-1

12 Lost Decade(L) 111 Garcia 5-7-3 Pompay 6-1

Shotinthefog logged most recent win this course and distance at Spring/Summer meeting; history repeats. Decisive Move will prove very tough on a soft lead. Didn't Take It cuts back for profitable route-to-sprint barn.

15 Sea Island(L) 119 Garcia 6-1-4 McGaughey III 5-2

16 Resonating 117 Garcia 1-2-1 Jerkens 2-1

Colonial Flag tallied rapid final fraction when a clear-cut winner in Grade III at WO; more to give. Medolina has logged fast figures in all five starts. Pianist has yet to deliver a poor effort in four outings; right in the thick of this.

1 Mile. 3&up. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $79,000.

1 Praetereo(L) 121 Prado 3-4-6 Domino 6-1

6 Cactus Charlie(L) 121 Uske 5-5-3 Tammaro 12-1

7 Leave of Absence(L) 121 Garcia 3-6-3 Violette, Jr 8-1

Golden Gulch fired swift half-mile drill since solid placing in last; primed for best. Gallant Fields packs solid late kick and should be aided by today's additional furlong; very playable. Leave of Absence is training strongly for return from 49-day freshener; more than good enough on 'A' game.

Also Eligible

13 Hot Rendezvous(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 9-2-x Contessa 5-1

Main Track Only

14 Bit Bustin 120 Montalvo 3-x-x Contessa 5-2

Pie's First Lady was tough-trip third in debut; improvement predicted. Ascended Fever owns two seconds and two thirds in four starts; logical player. Maybry's Girl adds blinkers after failing as the favorite in last; recoups losses? With Honorandgrace displayed improved speed in last.
