Schoolyard Dreams drops and consistently logs fast final figures. Rift has been idle for 1,005 days but is training with a purpose for return; mixed message. Upward could prove to be a front-running threat on best effort.

10Yampa River(L)119Arroyo3-6-1Rodriguez8-1

Off My Cloud gets favorable cutback in distance after logging improved pace figure in last. Trail Walker drops and owns advantageous stalker's style; dangerous. The Royal Boot could prove very tough on an unchallenged lead.

Chow Fun overcame soft fractions when a winner in first start on Big A sod; more to come. Rebellious Chic logged only win on Big A turf and compiled three tight works since last start. The Lady Says Yes has delivered strong efforts in all six starts; logical.

12More Debt(L)121Maragh1-5-9Trombetta20-1

Petrocelli returns to main track after hard-fought third on turf last out; fast dirt numbers. Jacobson entry: Prudent Investor makes first start since claimed by DAS and mate Denzel wheels back in a hurry after solid second this past Friday; potent pairing. Saturday Appeal is speedy and gets confident price hike; very interesting.

11Lucky Nancy E.(L)120Castro5-8-9Ryerson8-1

Possetivevibration owns speed, drops two class levels and should offer generous ticket. Margaret Ownzit closes and will be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Livininthefastlane logged four tight works since clear-cut second to a runaway winner last time; very playable.

8Sister City(L)114Franco1-1-5Hushion12-1

Talent N Passion is fresh and projects as the main speed in competitive field. Merry Meadow was DQ'd from fast-figured score at this level in last; could easily take this. Little Rocket is 1-for-1 on Big A's main track. My Sparky regressed in last after fast-numbered win in prior; bounce-back potential.

1aPoint Taken(L)120No Rider2-2-4Jacobson6-1

Unbridled Fire tallied rapid final fraction when a hard-charging second at Lrl last time. Cheyenne Nation was a determined winner for this price in last; big-time player. Royal Blessing, another last-race winner, could easily roll past them all in the lane. Compliance Officer is right in the thick of this on 'A' game.

Fastinov drops back in with maidens and switches to dirt; throw deep in cheap nightcap. El Dreamer is 0-for-45 but is competitive on best efforts. Bundler was compromised by slow pace in last; worth long look. St. Sincere owns speed but is a repeated failure as the favorite; you've been warned.
