Lightning Ron tallied improved pace and final figures in last; more to come. Distant Thoughts gets class relief and is training with a purpose for first start since October. Eight Cents was compromised by wide trip and slow start last time; worth long look.

5Clean Jean(L)118Garcia1-3-7Contessa12-1

Royal Suspicion had excuses in last two starts and should offer generous ticket. Friedman entry: Carameaway did the dirty work up front when a game second in last and mate Dreaming of Cara packs solid late kick on best; potent pairing. Miss Da Point was a fast-figured winner in last; right in the thick of this.

6Dusk to Dawn(L1)118Ortizx-x-xHushion9-2

7Station Chief(L)118Castro2-x-xContessa4-5

Tax Alex tallied swift internal numbers in last and should have more to give in second start since August. Station Chief earned fast final figure when a clear-cut second in debut; very dangerous. Dusk to Dawn makes debut for Mike Hushion; must be considered.

7Ten Items Or Less(L)122Maragh2-1-6Brown5-2


Patriotic Duty notched solid final fraction when winning last; pairs up. Market Blaster owns fast late pace figs on best efforts and logged both wins on Big A's main track; dangerous. Ten Items Or Less is speedy and could prove tough to catch on an unchallenged lead.

7Fast 'n' Firm(L)116Montanez4-6-4Ryerson15-1

Island Candy wheels back in a hurry after dominant, front-running score on Saturday. Brown Mellisa regressed in last after fast-figured second in prior; rebound threat. William'sluckygray is fleet-footed and should be aided by today's shorter trip.

11Rontos New York(L1)118Saezx-x-xRodriguez10-1

Unforced flashed improved speed in last and could be sitting on breakthrough effort at fat price. Spango delivered solid efforts in both starts; dangerous. Keyaly is 0-for-54 and counting but closes with interest on best. Pegasus T was a fast-figured second at 13-1 last time; regresses today at short odds?

10Saturday Appeal(L)117Rice2-2-9Schosberg2-1

Goodtolook is speedy and could lead from start to finish on tight-turned turf course. Irish Jade is training with a purpose and packs solid late kick on best; very playable. Waterway was a front-running winner in dirt sprint last time and could prove very tough if able to clear other pacesetters. Barnards Galaxy is 2-for-3 on Big A sod; must respect.

Fleet First was a determined winner in last and tallied swift final fraction in debut; more to come. Sideways Vision was a dominant victor in budding key race last time; big-time player. Wise Guide owns fast figures on 'A' efforts.

1aEastcoast Lights(L)124Leon7-10-7Reiff15-1

Captain Keon is rested and delivered career best effort in debut; price play in wide-open nightcap. Retire Fifty Five drops, moves to turf and could be sitting on wakeup at fat mutuel. Hooping was pace and trip compromised in last on GP grass; factor into mix if able to escape AE list. Dendrite is 0-for-25 but owns fast figs on best efforts.
