6Confederate Bay(L)118Gomez3-2-5Breed2-1

Confederate Bay projects as main speed in weak opener. Very Precious could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues. Goldstandardlady could be primed for wake-up in first start since 60-day freshener.

Snifter tallied improved final fraction when winning second straight last time; more to come. Kitchi Warrior rallied for fourth in last and should move forward in second start since seven-week layoff. Fairy Snow regressed in last but is a front-end threat on best.

5Charming Eyes(L)118Garcia1-9-7Aquilino15-1

Very Accomplished made determined rally to break maiden in last; rates close call. Happy Recap is fleet-footed and will prove very tough on a soft lead. Jazzminegem notched solid final figure when breaking maiden last out; right in the thick of this.


6 Furlongs. Claiming $12,500. 3yo. Purse: $25,000.

4King Kongrats(L)118Garcia4-1-10Arriaga20-1


6Pete's Fleet(L)111Worrie7-5-5Contessa4-1

Pete's Fleet gets class relief and projects as the controlling front-runner with proper ride. Bourbon Therapy is riding a two-race winning streak; big-time danger. Trisha's Trove was short in last but should be tighter in second start since three-month absence.

7Buckeye Heart(L)118Luzzi4-8-4Englehart10-1

Chasing Moonlight was compromised by wide trip in last and owns fast back figures. Bear's Spirit fired two bullet works since claimed by Gary Contessa; price will be tempting. Seeker makes first start for DAS/Jacobson; more than good enough on 'A' game.

1aWoke Up Tired(L)118Velazquez3-3-2Schettino12-1

Dreamin of Betty tallied deceptively fast final fraction on GP grass last out; rates call if able to escape AE list. Gotham Rising owns sprinter's speed and looms the controlling front-runner in turf debut. Vagarious is from a dam that's produced two turf winners; right in the thick of this.

7Sunrise Lover(L)122Lezcano3-6-6Jones12-1

Ballybrit wheels back in a hurry after stopping versus pricier field this past Friday; best takes this. Tempered Threat was a willing second in last; dangerous. Kid Blast is rested and packs strong late kick on 'A' game.

1aWarrior Up(L)122Arroyo5-4-9Ubillo15-1

Indy Tune makes first start since claimed by Michelle Nevin and could be primed for best. Go Get The Basil owns fast final figs and is training with a purpose for first start in 58 days; very playable. Ubillo entry: Papa Tom and mate Warrior Up can contend on best efforts.

8Political Farce(L)124Castro2-4-2Contessa3-1

In Speight Ofitall drops to lifetime low after showing good speed in first start since four-month layoff last time; more to come. Prince Raja gets the meds and is riding a forward line on the numbers; dangerous. Political Farce was a game second as the favorite in last; logical, short-priced player. Gabriel's Flame can impact if fractions get fast and furious.
