11 Call Me Sonny(L) 156 McCarthy 1-3-3 Hendriks 7-2

Total Command was a handy winner the first time he raced over the fences; more to come. Sharp Numbers gets class relief and makes peak start of form cycle; very dangerous. Call Me Sonny owns a sit-and-pounce style that should well served in field with ample speed.

Sacred Soul displayed good speed when prepped on the flat last out; primed for return to jumps. Extraextraordinary looms the prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues. Private Equity gets first-time Lasix; very interesting.

8 Brabbham(L1) 119 Ortiz, Jr 3-3-5 McLaughlin 5-2

Dyker Beach was pace compromised in last and should move forward in second start since seven-week layoff. Brabbham owns speed and gets the meds; very dangerous. Sneaky Blowout is rested and hails from Pletcher barn; could easily take this.

10 Saved the Best(L) 117 Saez 4-7-1 Hennig 7-2

Request a Puck drops and should be aided by today's added ground. Mr Algebra logged only win on Spa sod and is riding a forward line on the numbers. Flowing Mane makes first start since claimed by Mike Maker; very dangerous.

8 Jumpinofftheedge(L) 118 Saez 6-1-x Serpe 20-1

13 Don't Blame Her(L1) 119 Ortiz, Jr x-x-x Gargan 12-1

14 Alwaysinstilettos 119 Rodriguez x-x-x Ferraro 5-1

Hangingwithsonny was tough-trip third in debut and is from a dam that's produced three turf winners. Talk to Me also is bred to handle grass and bested top selection by more than two lengths last time; very dangerous. Flying K C was fourth in same race as top pair and fired 5-furlong bullet on Spa sod; right in the thick of this.

15 Most Happy Fella(L) 118 Solis 3-6-1 Schosberg 5-1

Mr. Vegas was an even third after starting from tough post last time and should move forward in second start since 13-month absence. Lubash was strangled into submission last out but owns two wins on Spa sod; big-time player on best. Street Game is a serious front-running threat on 'A' game.

Main Track Only

8 Aussi Austin(L) 121 Velazquez 2-1-2 Rodriguez 9-5

Roadhog was a convincing winner on Polytrack at Pid last time and owns fast late pace figures on turf. Slumber is training with a purpose since confident score at the Spa last summer; very dangerous. Star Channel should pack intensified kick with turnback from marathon trip; right in the thick of this.

13 Cozzetti(L) 121 Albarado 3-3-5 Romans 3-1

Nine O Wonderful tallied rapid final fraction when winning this course and distance last season; encore expected. Sayaad was a clear-cut second in last and fired half-mile bullet on Aug. 8. Monument Hill is rested and owns fast figures on best efforts.

10 Hoboken Joe(L) 119 Castellano 3-2-2 Schettino 3-1

Also Eligible

11 Hengroen(L) 119 Solis 9-4-9 Kelly 30-1

Show Some Lovin projects as the main speed with aggressive ride in cheap nightcap. Freight gets free shot with maidens after being Dq'd in last; very dangerous. Hoboken Joe tallied solid final fraction when third as the favorite in last. Smokey Brown compiled tight work tab and could wakeup at fat ticket with move to sod for new barn; very interesting.
