Talent n Passion is 1-for-1 on inner surface and could play out as the swiftest of the swift in field that's jammed with front-runners. Lion D N A wheels back in a hurry after solid placing last week; could easily take this. Ann's Smart Dancer makes peak start of form cycle and would be aided by pace meltdown.

1 Start Jumping(L) 119 Velasquez 3-2-2 Jacobson 2-1

1a Dan and Sheila(L) 120 Cohen 5-5-3 Jacobson 2-1

9 Master Jordan(L) 121 Husbands 10-7-3 Beech 30-1

Also Eligible

11 Go Olivia Go(L) 112 Zayas 5-2-8 Rojas 6-1

Score Boyera is 1-for-1 on the inner track and should be aided by today's added ground. Quiet Sunshine is speedy and should be tighter in second start since seven-week absence. Ezpz Lemon Squeeze makes third start since layoff; price will be tempting. Concealed was an ultra-game second in last; right in the thick of this.

12 Westerday(L) 119 Sone 3-3-3 Huertas 30-1

Get Gorgeous logged both career wins on inner surface and could be sitting on breakthrough in third start since five-month layoff. Maxana is riding a forward line on the numbers and will offer fat ticket. Alwaysinmycircle was a front-running second in last and should possess enhanced fitness in second start since August.

8 High Inflation(L) 116 Franco 3-3-3 Arroyo 5-2

9 Estrange(L) 114 Zayas 6-5-8 Barrera, III 8-1

Locks of Gold is rested and owns sit-and-pounce style that should be well served in weak nightcap. Ellen Dorene displayed noticeable improvement with addition of blinkers last time and fired half-mile bullet on Dec. 3; very playable. High Inflation is 0-for-16 but owns fast figs on 'A' game. Mini Muffin drops after showing improved speed in last; right in the thick of this.
