4Master Lightning(L)118Ortiz, Jr5-9-1Pletcher9-5

5Louisiana Flyboy(L)118Ortiz8-1-xBrown8-5

Maximus Decimus was a front-running winner in last and projects as the main speed once again. Afleet Accompli drops and owns fast figures on 'A' game. Louisiana Flyboy logged five tight works since subpar effort in Nashua; right in the thick of this on best.

1Ballylee120Ortiz, Jrx-x-xAlbertrani3-1


9Colonel Juanita(L)115Garcia4-8-xContessa10-1

Fade to Black looms the dominant speed on the fence in first two-turn start. Rachel's Temper runs late and could be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Colonel Juanita is another that could benefit if pace meltdown ensues.


1 Mile & 70 Yards. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $12,500. Purse: $25,000.

16Get Gorgeous(L)115Esquivel6-8-7Badgett, Jr12-1

We'll Talk has won two straight at FL and could be ready for prime time in suspect field. Natalie Victoria owns speed and fast figures but takes suspicious price plunge in first start since claimed. Seven Dreams closes in sprints and could be aided by today's longer trip.

10Royal Roxie(L1)121Arroyox-x-xZito10-1

Star Empress compiled four tight works in span of 16 days since rallying for third in last; call based on price potential. The Magic Stone owns speed and fast numbers but has lost ground in the stretch in all five starts; handle with care at short ticket. Conzig owns solid late pace figures on best efforts.

1aStart Jumping(L)119Velasquez1-3-2Jacobson3-1

Mewannarose tallied swift final fraction when a hard-charging second in last; more to come. Mean Season has trained strongly since notching rapid internal and final figures when winning debut at Lrl; very playable. Start Jumping visually and numerically impressed when winning on the winterized surface nine days ago; could easily take another.

8Mlle. Minuit(L)116Rodriguez6-1-6Feron12-1

G Note demolished maidens by seven lengths last time and has benefit of rail in first two-turn start. Miss Narcissist logged third straight score when a stubborn winner in last but makes first route outing and will offer short ticket. Flipcup has notched swift numbers in three starts at WO; must consider.

Gold Potion tallied rapid late pace figure when a solid second in last; more to come. Tassinaia endured tough trip in last but should move forward in third start of form cycle. Mini Muffin owns speed and competitive numbers. My Lucky Lieu gets the meds after clear-cut second behind a runaway winner in last; right in the thick of this.
