1a Italian Wedding(L) 154 Dalton 6-5-6 Sheppard 5-1

7 Cuantos(L) 120 Maragh 1-5-x Hennig 9-5

Swell fired half-mile bullet on Aug. 12 and would be aided by pace meltdown. Giantinthemoonlite has trained sharply since dominant score in debut. Cuantos tallied easy score in first start on Spa soil; must consider.

12 Zeezee Zoomzoom(L) 119 Rocco, Jr 8-x-x Tarrant 20-1

Hail Cornell was a useful fourth in debut; forward move predicted. Puca is from a dam that's produced two turf winners. Lady Eli compiled tight work tab for first start for Chad Brown; stay tuned to tote.

1a Ancient Rome(L) 120 Velasquez 3-4-5 Brown 5-2

Joan's Choice is rested, owns stalker's style and could be ideally positioned in contentious field. Readthebyline will prove very tough on a soft lead. Love to Run is right in the thick of this on 'A' game.

9 Courageous Karen(L) 121 DeCarlo 12-5-1 Shevy 20-1

12 Confessa(L) 113 Rice 2-8-6 Gargan 5-2

12 Speedinthruthecity(L) 119 Leparoux 4-1-5 Asmussen 6-1

Quay upped record to 2-for-3 on Spa sod when a hard-charging winner in last; more to give. Madame Giry makes peak start of form cycle and packs potent late kick on best. Goldstryke Glory is fleet-footed and could easily take this field wire to wire.

11 Taramislew(L) 124 Rocco, Jr 3-6-4 Schoeneman 12-1

Miss Motivation was pace and position compromised when a late-running third in last. Kevin's Steel regressed in last after game placing in prior; bounce-back potential. Kelly's Prize makes peak start of form cycle after showing improved speed in last; dangerous. Bi Light of Day was just length behind top selection when a tough-trip fourth on Aug. 7; right in the thick of this.
