10 Shipwrecked(L1) 115 Esquivel 7-x-x Englehart 8-1

Loki's Vengeance is firing bullets for first start since clear-cut placing in debut. Speed Read is speedy and will prove very tough on an unchallenged lead. Mineral Water made belated rally in debut and should move forward with race under belt.

6 Pin and Win(L) 118 Castellano,Jr 8-1-8 Lostritto 30-1

Pure Sensation makes peak start of form cycle and projects as the controlling front-runner. Extrasexyhippzster gets favorable cutback and owns fast figures. Oliver Zip has trained sharply since visually impressive score in debut at Lrl; right in the thick of this.

1a Goodnewsisnonews(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 3-6-x Pletcher 2-1

Monopolize was pace and trip compromised in debut and should be aided by today's added ground. All My Memories owns fast numbers and must be factored into the mix if able to escape AE list. Great Minds gets the meds after besting a next-out winner last time.

5

10 Running Tap(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 4-7-2 Rodriguez 3-1

11 Superiority(L) 113 Zayas 3-3-4 Persaud 6-1

Superiority wheels back in a hurry after hard-charging third last Saturday. Running Tap makes first start since claimed by Rudy Rodriguez; very dangerous. Rigby owns field's fastest final numbers but has been on the bench for 225 days; must take the good with the bad.

10 Worldly Charm(L) 120 Maragh 3-x-x McLaughlin 9-5

11 Night Time Slipper 120 Lopez x-x-x Polanco 50-1

D'Kennesaw Cat made middle move and flattened when third in key-race debut at Prx; more to come. Hey Kiddo has finished second in all three starts; continues trend? Worldly Charm failed at 90 cents on the dollar in debut but could recoups losses for potent second-out stable.

13 Wise Guide(L) 119 Morales 3-10-11 Kimmel 12-1

Native Singer was a front-running maiden winner in last and projects to secure clear lead once again. Sea to Sky owns a win and two seconds in three starts on inner track; big-time threat. Lord of Love packs potent late kick on best and is favorably posted inside; price will be tempting.

1 Battier(L) 116 Ortiz, Jr 3-4-3 Pletcher 4-1

5 Abra(L) 112 Arroyo 4-1-2 Rice 15-1

6 Palace(L) 118 Velasquez 1-1-1 Rice 7-5

Palace tallied swift late pace and final figs when winning Fall Highweight Handicap. Strapping Groom was a game second behind top selection in 'Highweight' and fired half-mile bullet in the interim. Battier should pack intensified late kick with cutback to sprint.

13 Castles Burning(L) 120 DeCarlo 4-8-8 Duggan 15-1

14 Finders Key(L) 120 Arroyo 5-5-6 Badgett, Jr 8-1

World Premier didn't care for the mud last time but logs solid late pace numbers on best efforts; call based on price in wide-open nightcap. Inaflash was a determined winner in last at FL and owns fast back figures. Start It Up also won last and owns victory on inner oval; very playable. Vaid is riding a two-race winning streak; must consider.
