14 Radamel(L1) 119 Maragh x-x-x Morales 20-1

Evolution was compromised by slow start when a late-running third in first outing; more to give. Pride of Stride gets the meds after useful third in debut at Delaware. Royal Son makes first start for Pletcher and fired an eye-catching 5-furlong bullet on July 23; need more?

16 Faith Hall(L) 121 Saez 1-2-2 O'Connell 8-1

Miss Melinda owns sprinter's speed and could play out as the controlling front-runner in turf debut. Granny Mc's Kitten tallied improved final fraction in most recent start and logged only win on Spa turf. Lawn Party must be factored into the mix if able to escape AE list.

12 Miss Behaviour(L) 116 Castellano 2-1-3 Schoenthal 10-1

Tea Time fired half-mile bullet since winning second in a row last out; more to come. Sweet Reason, 2-for-2 at Saratoga, compiled bullet-riddled work slate for first start in 56 days. Red Velvet will prove a very tough customer on an unchallenged lead.

9 Last Gunfighter(L) 121 Castellano 9-1-1 Brown 15-1

Will Take Charge is training sharply for first start since improved second in Stephen Foster; rates close call. Palace Malice has yet to lose a race (four straight wins) as a 4-year-old. Last Gunfighter can contend on 'A' game.

11

13 Integrity(L) 117 No Rider 7-1-1 Brown 7-2

14 Dawly(L) 119 Arroyo 7-1-2 Rodriguez 4-1

Plainview projects as the speed of the speed with aggressive ride. Big Blue Kitten, 2-for-2 on Spa sod, will be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Bio Pro regressed in last after front-running score in prior; rebound threat. Paris Vegas could impact if pace meltdown ensues.
