8 Dan and Sheila(L) 121 Lezcano 7-2-2 Parker 15-1

8 Elusive Act(L) 117 Rocco, Jr 4-1-8 Wilkes 5-1

Hillary D logged three tight works since breaking maiden at 7-furlong trip in last start. Kaitlyns Cat, another that exited maiden ranks in last, fired crisp half-mile drill over the Spa surface; very playable. I Jus Wana Have Fun owns speed and makes peak start of form cycle. Elusive Act is training with a purpose for first start since claimed.

15 King Wando(L) 119 Solis 3-8-x Ribaudo 7-2

Without Regard returns to turf after failing as the fave in last two outings; rates close call. Downgoesfrazier needed last and should be aided by today's added ground. Saltine Warrior owns sprinter's speed and could play out as the dominant front-runner.

1 Rolloncat(L) 119 Maragh 6-x-x Badgett, Jr 20-1

Also Eligible

9 Vigorish(L) 119 Alvarado 5-x-x Lukas 5-1

Main Track Only

10 Pecorino(L) 119 No rider 2-x-x Pletcher 1-1

Inventor's Gate ships in from Mth after firing swift half-mile in final work; best guess. Sum Superstar moves to grass for Pletcher after being outrun in dirt debut; improvement expected. Due Diligence, from a dam that's produced two turf winners, debuts for Chad Brown; could be the goods.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $20,000. Purse: $37,000.

1 Simplie Sinister(L) 123 Jimenez 7-x-x Reiff 20-1

7 Darnley Bay(L) 123 Castellano 6-5-3 Lerman 5-1

8 Rettalfa(L) 119 Rocco, Jr 3-3-4 Gullo 3-1

Rettalfa is riding a forward line on the numbers and should offer best price potential of the main players. Inaflash bested top selection by a half-length last time but consistently loses ground in the lane; handle with care at short ticket. Toast to Ashley adds blinkers and makes first start with maiden claiming tag; wakeup potential.

7 Frazil(L) 121 Velasquez 5-4-2 Rice 15-1

8 Hello Lover(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 3-3-1 Reid, Jr 2-1

Hello Lover holds an edge on final numbers. Keep Me Informed packs solid late kick on best efforts. Bernie the Maestro returns to dirt and can prove a very tough customer on an unchallenged lead.

7 Troilus(L) 118 Rosario 3-2-1 Asmussen 12-1

Strapping Groom fell victim to scorching fractions in last; softer flow in this pace dynamic. Hardened Wildcat is firing bullets for first start since 47-day freshener; very dangerous. Candyman E owns fast figures on 'A' game.

9 Fly Ride(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 7-2-1 Serpe 6-1

Main Track Only

10 Regal Strike(L) 121 No rider 2-5-5 Gullo 2-1

Volcano Run should pack intensified late wallop with cutback to abbreviated dash. Don't Say No makes peak start of form cycle after game placing in last; big-time threat. Beer is Good owns speed but lacks heart; must take the good with the bad.

10

13 Nuffsaid Nuffsaid(L) 121 Ortiz 5-2-7 Nevin 4-1

14 Wise Choice(L) 116 Franco 9-6-6 Sciacca 12-1

Edie tallied swift final fraction when a clear-cut second in last; more to come. Glamour Galore exits sprints and could play out as the main speed; very dangerous. Town Flirt makes third start since layoff and packs potent late kick on best. Chick in Slacks regressed in last after game placing in prior; rebound potential.
