Charity Reins adds blinkers after even fifth in first start since five-month absence; improvement expected. Knock Quietly is 0-for-31 but owns fast numbers on best efforts; must consider.

Norman Asbjornson tallied sizzling final fraction when a last-to-first winner in last at Lrl; rates call based on price potential. Mordi's Miracle logged swift internal numbers when an ultra-game second in Excelsior; big-time player. Flat Out is 3-for-3 at Belmont; recaptures old form? Rattlesnake Bridge was a fast-figured winner in last at GP; intriguing Westchester renewal.

10 Chessrate(L) 124 Maragh 8-4-5 Englehart 5-1

11 Mea Maxima Culpa(L) 118 Alvarado 4-4-6 Persaud 20-1

Quintile gets class relief, adds blinkers and pulls weight from field; throw deep in weak nightcap. Go the Distance also drops and should pack intensified late kick with cutback to 6 furlongs. Southside Sis owns a running style that should benefit from move to grass. Yankeeindixieland is from a dam that's produced a grass winner.
