8 Scare City(L) 120 Alvarado 6-7-1 Schosberg 4-1

One More Chief is fleet-footed and returns to dirt. Invocation adds blinkers and makes peak start of form cycle. Cosmic Coincidence is a front-end threat on best efforts.

8 Sleeping Giant(L1) 119 Napravnik x-x-x Asmussen 10-1

9 Zandar(L1) 119 Ortiz x-x-x Morley 12-1

Louisiana Brown gets the meds and could play out as the speed of the speed. Vinolicious made middle move and faded in debut; dangerous. Cyclogenisis is from a dam that's produced a turf winner; worth long look.

7 Very Cherry Candy(L) 124 Velasquez 4-1-2 Jacobson 9-5

Guayana notched swift late pace fig when winning last at Prx; more to give. Rosie My Way was a late-running third in last and should be aided by added ground. Very Cherry Candy drops and owns fast final figures.

10 Premium 122 Alvarado 5-1-11 McLaughlin 4-1

Premium was pace and position compromised last out; forward move predicted. Corporate Culture is fresh, training with a purpose and owns fast figs. Almost An Angel gets price hike after clear-cut score in last at Prx; price will be tempting.

7 Dyker Beach(L) 124 Castellano 2-2-2 Jacobson 7-5

Tony B logged dominant victory the first time he touched Spa soil; onward and upward. Dyker Beach has finished second at short odds in last three starts; continues trend? Alysaro tallied improved pace and final numbers when third in last; must consider.

6 Ambusher(L) 115 Hernandz,Jr 4-3-4 Wilkes 4-1

Natalie Victoria gets class relief and projects as the main speed. Endless Chatter exits fast-figured wins in last two starts at Prx; very dangerous. Ambusher packs a strong stretch wallop on best efforts.

14 Appealing Alex(L) 118 No Rider 3-10-5 Zito 3-1
