6Hope Still Springs(L)120Luzzi3-4-7Brown7-2
Wildhaassseee was a front-running maiden winner in last and could get early jump once again. Willy Pay always fires but repeatedly fails at short odds; you've been warned. Hope Still Springs was just two lengths behind 'Willy' after poor start in last; right in the thick of this.
6 Furlongs. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Allowance. Purse: $62,000.
3Smoldering Beauty(L)118Ortiz, Jr3-1-5Breen2-1
Hurricane Kitten didn't care for the slop last time but could be ideally placed in the stalker's seat on dry land. Smoldering Beauty will prove a very tough customer on a soft lead. Hold It also is fleet-footed and was a fast-figured winner in last; very dangerous.

3West Hills Giant(L)122Ortiz, Jr7-1-1Terranova,II6-1
4The Truth and K G(L)120Ortiz1-1-4Rodriguez9-5
The Truth and K G has been ultra-impressive in last two and rates close call in compact but contentious field. Winning Cause was done in by bad start when a game second in Jimmy Winkfield; big-time danger. Rubysandpearls carved swift fractions when third in Winkfield last time; speedy and very playable.

5Sovereign Default(L)118Ortiz, Jr1-7-6Rice2-1
Sovereign Default was a tons-the-best winner in last and now makes first start since claimed by Linda Rice; more to give. Arch Traveler is fresh and owns fast figures on 'A' game. Colizeo makes first start since red-tagged by Rudy Rodriguez; need more?

2bEconomy of Words(L)120Silvera5-9-9Peebles5-1
El Bagre set hot pace when weakening in the lane last time; wire to wire today. Youngwildandfree drops and could be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the stretch. T C Lane owns speed and pulls weight from the field; must be considered.

7Beat of the Drum(L1)120Luzzi5-6-xJerkens6-1
Cobalto makes first start with a maiden claiming tag after showing improved speed in last. Hooked Forever is riding a forward line on the numbers and now adds blinkers; very dangerous. Ask About Me was second to a runaway, repeat winner last time; worth long look.

9Best Actor(L)118Silvera5-1-3Toscano, Jr15-1
Sacred Ground was a hand-ridden winner the first time he touched the winterized surface and should be advantageously placed in field with ample speed. Willy Elliot could play out as the quickest of the quick with aggressive handling; dangerous. Chairman Now regressed in last after fast-figured victory in prior; bounce back potential.

10My Wildest Dreams(L)118Morales2-2-4Gonzalez15-1
Ibid was done in by pace pressure when making first start since August last time; tighter today. Gendarmour failed to fire last time but packs a potent late kick on 'A' game; very playable. Vicki's Dancer was second to a repeat winner in same last race as Gendarmour; right in the thick of this.

6Take a Walk(L)118Ortiz, Jr7-6-6Gonzalez12-1
11Person of Interest(L)118Lezcano4-6-8Miranda30-1
Roman Invasion gets class relief after being speed sharpened in sprint comeback; forward move predicted. Minescape also drops and owns fast back numbers; must consider. Take a Walk logged swift numbers on the inner track last winter; price will be tempting. Rangey could impact if able to transfer turf form to dirt.
