12 Readyheartandsoul(L) 118 Maragh 4-x-x Albertrani 5-1

Ride of Your Life is fresh and training with a purpose for turf debut; call based on price potential. Point Roll notched fast late pace figure when third in debut on GP sod; very playable. Born in Brooklyn makes peak start of form cycle and is from a dam that's produced a grass winner; wake-up possibility.

12 Native Singer(L) 122 Franco 8-1-1 Gullo 20-1

Dehere of the Cat took backward step in last but owns fast late pace and final numbers on 'A' game. N. F.'s Destiny is speedy and logs swift numbers but has been on the bench for 70 days; mixed message. The Rhythmisright was a much-the-best, 11-length winner last out; bounces today?

7 My Pal Chrisy(L) 119 Alvarado 2-2-2 Wolfson 7-2

My Pal Chrisy owns fast final fractions and could receive ideal setup in Distaff Handicap that's loaded with speed. La Verdad fired 5-furlong bullet since winning last and could play out as the speed of the speed. Munnings Sister is another that could prove to be a tough customer if able to beat other front-runners to the top.

13 Mighty Zealous(L) 113 Rice 2-4-x Rice 3-1

Mark Twain logged improved last pace figure when second in last and is bred to handle switch to sod. Hobson's Choice tallied solid final fraction on Big A turf last April and compiled sharp recent works; big-time threat. Toohottoevenspeak is riding a forward line on internal and final numbers; very playable. Dreamin of Betty faced tougher on GP grass this past winter; worth long look.
