Secret Shifters failed as the favorite in last at Prx but is 1-for-1 on the Big A's main track and could rebound at better price.

Guyana Star made sustained rally to break maiden last time and gets call to pair up wins in weak field. Red Hook was a change-of-pace maiden winner in last; dangerous. Still Shea to Me, another last-race maiden winner, will prove a tough customer on an unchallenged lead.

9 Metaurus(L) 120 Ortiz 2-5-2 Sciacca 4-1

Kingofthebluegrass was pace and trip compromised in last and return to turf suits. Becky's Kitten is rested and could get the early jump in field that's light on speed. Late Starter owns fast dirt numbers and razor-sharp current condition; could easily take this.

Schoolyard Dreams gets confident price hike and owns two wins at the distance; close call in small but competitive field.

16 Tish's Bad Boy(L) 124 Ortiz, Jr 6-7-6 D'Alessandro 10-1

You Tarzan tallied improved final fraction last time and is from a dam that's produced two turf winners. Suilleabhain was a front-running second in last and logged solid numbers on Big A sod this past fall; dangerous. Drivenbychocolate is working with a purpose for move to grass; must consider. Hoppy Do is a half-brother to two grass winners; worth long look at long price.
