9Metropolitan Storm(L)120Lezcano8-5-7Persaud20-1

Executive Office is firing bullets for first start for Clement; best guess. Geaux Mets should improve with race under belt. Coviello debuts for Violette; follow the money.

7Survival120Castellanox-x-xMcGaughey III6-1

Long Water hails from potent second-out stable and should be aided by added ground. Mosler finished behind a pair of next-out winners in debut and fired half-mile bullet on Tuesday. Rebranded bested top selection by nearly four lengths in first start; right in the thick of this.

8Sweet Maxine(L)120Velazquez2-3-2Gorham5-2

Sweet Hot Toddy owns a stalker's style that should be well served in cheap field. My Unbridled Storm needed last and would be aided by pace meltdown. Sweet Maxine tallied swift pace and final figures in last; bounces today?

6Guyana Star(L)117Camacho, Jr5-8-3Persaud15-1

7Blue Sixty Four(L)120Luzzi8-5-2O'Brien15-1

Crafty Push is riding a forward line on the numbers and makes fourth start of form cycle; rates close call. Revealing Moment was second to a repeat winner in last; class drop after claim is the fuzzy. Concealed logged only win at Belmont Park; price will be tempting.

Also Eligible

13Sun Worshipper(L)120Solis2-9-7Kelly7-2

Mister Dooley tallied solid final fraction when fifth in debut; tight recent work tab seals the deal. Saltine Warrior was compromised by tough post and demanding pace dynamics when third in last; very dangerous. A Better Tomorrow earned strong numbers in all three turf starts; must respect.

15Six Drivers(L1)115Francox-x-xMorrison15-1

McIlroy owns solid late pace numbers on best and sheds blinkers for Chad Brown (47 percent); four tight works last month is the clincher. Metro gets class relief after tough trip in first start since nine-month absence last time; forward move predicted. St. Sincere makes first start for DAS/Jacobson after setting swift splits when a strong second in last; big-time threat.

12Mischievous One(L)115Franco7-4-xCannizzo20-1

Enthrone delivered best efforts in two starts on WO Polytrack; switch to sod should suit. Crescent regressed in last after fast-figured third in debut; by top-shelf turf sire. Sheldon is from a dam that's produced four grass winners and Jimmy Toner barn is capable with newcomers; could be the goods.

10Indy's Illusion(L)117No Rider6-7-9Tagg7-2

Tug of War has trained three times since last start and should move forward with move to turf and second start since five-month layoff. Red Vine displayed strong stretch kick in all three starts; very dangerous. Valid adds blinkers, makes peak start of form cycle and logged two sharp works since last outing; right in the thick of this. Happy Fella can easily impact if fractions get fast and furious.

11Sally's Dream(L)115Franco7-4-1Persaud15-1

Win for Kitten is fresh and training with a purpose and tallied swift final fraction when coming off the bench at Belmont Spring/Summer meeting. Yes It's Pink makes peak start of form cycle and logged two of three wins on Belmont grass; big-time danger. Kiss Me Lola owns sprinter's speed and will prove tough on a soft lead. Wickapecko has won three of last four starts; right in the thick of this.

Main Track Only


Noosh's Tale lacks speed but owns field's fastest final fractions on 'A' game. Mr Algebra, another that packs potent late wallop, was solid second in last. Wishingonadream is speedy and can steal this on an unchallenged lead. Professor Chaos would be aided by front-end meltdown; worth long look at long price.
