8 Well Received(L) 114 Garcia 5-x-x McLaughlin 5-1

9 Snacks(L) 121 Velasquez 8-6-5 Rice 5-1

Reggie D bounced in last after fast-figured placing in prior outing; rebounds. Stone Picker is another that regressed in most recent; price will be tempting. Light Of Mercy could impact if pace meltdown ensues.

11 Mac's Ink(L) 122 Lezcano 12-x-x Barbara 20-1

That's Gin was an ultra-game second in last; short price in weak field. Got a Hunch was just a half-length behind top selection last time; very dangerous in third start of form cycle. Rathskeller is speedy and drops; must consider.

9 Lady's Lunar Luck(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 1-1-11 Kimmel 2-1

Take Her Tothe Top overcame soft pace to win last and has benefit of the rail today. Lady's Lunar Luck owns fast figs and is riding a two-race winning streak. Sally's Dream has won three of last four; right in the thick of this.

Big Creek made a big late rally when a strong third in last; more to give. Barnards Galaxy overcame traffic to log clear-cut score at this level in last; very dangerous. Never on Time could play out as the dominant speed on the rail. Northern Tripp could land in the exotics at fat ticket.
