Champagne Ruby cuts favorable cutback in distance and should pack amplified late wallop. Henry's Gal was a fast-figured, front-running winner in debut and now makes first start since claimed by DAS/Jacobson. Cryptic Comet is a last-race winner that could fall through the cracks in the wagering.

9 Moravitz(L) 121 Cohen 2-5-2 Jacobson 5-2

2b Harry Consolidator(L) 115 Zayas 9-5-7 Shivmangal 30-1

Moravitz turns back to sprint and should possess intensified stretch punch. DAS entry: Chief Scout owns speed and should be advantageously positioned in big field and mate Lincoln Flyer makes first start since claimed; potent pairing. Kissed and Missed is fresh and training with a purpose; price will be tempting.

5 Speightscity(L) 118 Morales 6-4-6 Contessa 20-1

6 Praetereo(L) 118 Cohen 3-1-3 Jacobson 9-5

Colleen's Sailor is rested and could capitalize on soft lead in small field. Praetereo regressed in last after fast-figured win in prior; very dangerous. Farhaan is riding a forward line on the numbers; don't ignore.

8 Sals Wonderfulgirl(L) 120 Cohen 4-x-x Martin 3-1

9 Lauded(L) 115 Franco 10-x-x Hennig 20-1

Sals Wonderfulgirl set hot fractions and faded in debut; controlling speed today. Lady Luciano exits clear-cut placing in last; very playable. Believeinfaith fired 5-furlong bullet since eased on Nov. 3; very dangerous if all is well.

9 Photon(L) 118 Velasquez 3-5-2 Englehart 5-2

10 Divine Child(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 4-5-1 Servis 8-1

Photon was victimized by slow splits when rallying for third last time; forward move predicted. I Want You to Know is a hot commodity at the claim box and owns fast back numbers; big-time threat. A. P. Cino is more than good enough on the figures and fired 3-furlong bullet for local debut; don't dismiss.

12 M P Ruckus(L) 122 Morales 8-1-2 Barker 15-1

Also Eligible

1a El Oh El(L) 119 Cohen 3-2-5 Jacobson 1-1

El Oh El owns field's fastest final fractions and gets the nod if able to escape AE list. M P Ruckus was done in by front-end pressure last time but can prove a very tough customer on an unchallenged lead. Stealth Steed was a strong second at 15-1 last time; big-priced player once again.

10 Hope for Tomorrow(L) 119 Santiago 8-4-1 Schettino 12-1

Also Eligible

11 Nonnie Connie(L) 119 Velasquez 4-3-3 Galluscio 4-1

Rebellious Chic exits solid placing on turf last time and should have more to give in fourth start since 18-month layoff. Sugar Beach owns sprinter's speed and starts from the fence; wire-to-wire threat. Little Rita packs potent late kick on best and would be aided by pace meltdown.

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

Dan and Sheila tallied swift late pace figure when a determined winner in last; pairs up. Modern Child took backward step in most recent after pace-pressing score in prior; very playable. Mighty Ian makes peak start of form cycle and looms the speed of the speed with aggressive ride.

15 Exporter(L) 119 Cohen 3-2-1 Jacobson 8-1

16 Greeley's Law(L) 120 Luzzi 10-7-8 Miller 50-1

Pasta Lover is riding a forward line on the form parameters and should be aided by one-level class drop. Amber Coast is speedy, fired 5-furlong bullet on Christmas Eve and could play out as the dominant front-runner; very playable. Festive Spirit is training with a purpose for first start in 287 days; let price be your guide. Drink With Pride owns fast back figures and makes first start since claimed by Dominic Galluscio; don't ignore. Saxophone Len logs fast late pace figures on best efforts and must be factored into the mix if able to draw into body of race.
