5Santa Elf(L)118Maragh1-x-xLevine5-2

Santa Elf tallied solid final fraction when besting a next-out winner in victorious debut; pairs up. Tenango makes peak start of form cycle after fast-figured placings in last two outings; could easily take this. Much Stronger makes first start since moving to David Jacobson stable; very dangerous.

8Purple Pico(L)116Tomas8-5-8O'Brien15-1

Say Lancelot logged improved pace figure in last and could be sitting on breakthrough in weak maiden field. Honest Johnny is rested and drops to lifetime low; big-time danger. Suilleabhain was a pace-setting second in last; right in the thick of this.

5Black Pen(L)122Cohen6-2-4Jacobson4-1

Vee's Accolade compiled three tight works for first start since 56-day freshener; rates close call. Charlestonian is speedy and training with a purpose for first start since June; price will be tempting. Black Pen failed to handle mud last time but is more than good enough on 'A' game.

10Dusty Miles108Davisx-x-xDavis15-1

Change At Jamaica owns sprinter's speed and could capitalize on unchallenged lead in turf debut. Art Class makes first start with maiden claiming tag for capable Kevin Boniface barn; dangerous. Komisarek owns solid turf figures; worth long look at long price.


1 Mile. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $20,000. NY Bred. Purse: $29,000.

7Taylors Golden Eye(L)118Laredo8-7-6Granville30-1

8My Golden Girl(L1)124Maraghx-x-xBond7-2

Bonita Sonata gets much-needed class relief and owns fast back figures. Little Gabby Girl was a much-improved third when getting Lasix and blinkers last time; big-time player. Love Is Key Kaz regressed in last after pace-pressing fourth two back; odds will be tempting.


1 1/16 Mile. (Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $20,000. Purse: $29,000.

11Miracleonbroadway(L)118Fragoso8-8-6Turner, Jr15-1


Chocolate Drops gets rider upgrade after making premature move to the lead last time; rates close call. Pure Afleet packs a solid late kick and will be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Shewreckstheplace is rested and owns solid turf figures; don't ignore.

6Carameaway(L)116Ortiz, Jr4-1-5Friedman12-1

Silver Prize is 2-for-2 on the Big A's main track and can win from on or off the pace; rates call based on price potential. Princess Mara exits sprint tightener and owns win at mile trip; dangerous. Schillerette packs a potent late kick and will be the prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues.


6 Furlongs. The BREAK THROUGH. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $75,000.

4D'princess(L)118Ortiz, Jr1-7-1Martin6-1

5Promise Me a Cat(L)118Maragh3-3-3Martin7-2

Well Kept is riding a forward line on the numbers and and will benefit from return to Big A's outer oval. Burban tallied improved internal numbers when getting the wrong setup last time at GP; very interesting. Singlet logs fast numbers with machine-like consistency. Promise Me a Cat is 2-for-2 on the main track; must consider.

12Silver Over Gold(L)120Hill5-7-9Matties10-1

Australis Princess owns win on Big A sod and projects as speed of the speed with aggressive ride. Hot Splash was overmatched in lone turf outing and has benefit of rail on tight-turned course. Our Gin Mill packs a solid late kick on best efforts. Hoopskirt drops and makes peak start of form cycle; right in the thick of this.
