10Nacho Saint(L)121Velasquez7-5-1Breen15-1

Crown the Chief is rested and projects as the speed of the speed in second start since claimed by Bruce Levine. So Scott packs powerful late kick and looms the prime beneficiary if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Hewitts logged swift three-furlong work since last outing; very interesting.

Malachite is riding a forward line on the numbers and should be aided by added ground. Transparent adds blinkers after being pace compromied in last; dangerous. Revolutionary has failed as the favorite in all three starts; your move.

9Baal Perazim(L)114Rodriguez7-12-9Goodwin30-1


Talmadge Hill gets class relief after fast-figured fourth in last. Sharpandwitty owns speed, pulls weight from the field and will offer juicy price; worth long look. Azasecret regressed in last after pairing up seconds in prior two starts; right in the thick of this.

Also Eligible

11Indy Tune(L)121Montanez1-3-7Allard12-1

Smokin Candy makes first start for high-percentage trainer and packs field's most potent late kick on 'A' game. Tug of War earned swift numbers when second in last two starts; continues trend? Bigger Is Bettor is a big-time player, getting positive surface switch and owns fast back numbers.

7Get Off the Stoop(L)120Maragh11-x-xBond6-1

8Burning Flame(L)115Garcia5-7-xContessa4-1

G W's Hammer packs solid late kick and should be closer to early pace with addition of blinkers. Burning Flame is fleet-footed and could capitalize on clear lead in soft field. Chapman is training sharply and attracted Dominguez for debut; could be the goods.

Fiftyfour Forever gets favorable added ground and looms the controlling speed with proper ride. Rhonin Victoria made sustained rally when a clear-cut winner in last; very dangerous. Shesabronxbomber makes first start since claimed by Rudy Rodriguez; could easily take this.

10Revere(L)121Ortiz, Jr5-2-5Serpe7-2


Harvest King tallied improved late pace figure in last and rates call based on price potential in weak nightcap. Tough All Day was a fast-figured second in last at Prx; big-time threat. Wildhaassseee has earned good numbers in all three starts and now makes peak start of form cycle; right in the thick of this. Revere bounced in last after game second in prior; rebound potential.
