5 Clean Jean(L) 118 Garcia 1-3-7 Contessa 12-1

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.

7 Station Chief(L) 118 Castro 2-x-x Contessa 4-5

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.

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.

7 Fast 'n' Firm(L) 116 Montanez 4-6-4 Ryerson 15-1

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.

10 Pepi's Find(L) 118 Solis 11-9-x Jerkens 20-1

11 Rontos New York(L1) 118 Saez x-x-x Rodriguez 10-1

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?

Main Track Only

10 Saturday Appeal(L) 117 Rice 2-2-9 Schosberg 2-1

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.

1a Eastcoast Lights(L) 124 Leon 7-10-7 Reiff 15-1

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.
