7 Ali's Winner(L) 120 Castro 6-6-6 Schwartz 10-1

8 Franky Nails(L) 113 Coa 6-6-1 Bush 15-1

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.

5 Bird Fu(L) 118 Lezcano 1-4-3 Persaud 10-1

6 Proud Siren(L) 118 Silvera 2-5-5 Granville 20-1

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.

4 The Truth and K G(L) 120 Ortiz 1-1-4 Rodriguez 9-5

5 Winning Cause(L) 118 Velasquez 2-1-5 Pletcher 8-5

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.

1 Swag Daddy(L) 118 Silvera 5-6-7 Rodriguez 12-1

5 Sovereign Default(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 1-7-6 Rice 2-1

6 Colizeo(L) 113 Ortiz 6-3-4 Rodriguez 5-1

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?

3 Fish Hooks(L) 120 Perez 2-5-7 Jones 8-1

8 Youngwildandfree(L) 115 Davis 4-6-3 Contessa 5-2

2b Economy of Words(L) 120 Silvera 5-9-9 Peebles 5-1

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.

6 Furlongs. 3yo. Maiden Claiming $50,000. NY Bred. Purse: $40,000.

1 Hooked Forever(L) 120 Velasquez 3-5-4 Ryerson 4-1

7 Beat of the Drum(L1) 120 Luzzi 5-6-x Jerkens 6-1

8 Sunrise Lover(L) 120 Lezcano 2-5-3 Jones 15-1

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.

7

1 Mile & 70 Yards. The TOP BUNK. Starters Handicap. 4&up. Purse: $50,000.

1 Chairman Now(L) 118 Velasquez 3-1-5 Englehart 5-2

7 Fortitude(L) 115 Hill 1-8-6 Schosberg 15-1

8 Itsagoodtendollars(L) 120 Ortiz 4-6-4 DiPrima 3-1

9 Best Actor(L) 118 Silvera 5-1-3 Toscano, Jr 15-1

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.

6 Furlongs. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Allowance Optional Claiming. NY Bred. Purse: $52,000.

1 Gendarmour(L) 118 Cohen 4-2-1 Kimmel 3-1

9 Silver Over Gold(L) 108 Davis 9-6-5 Matties 30-1

10 My Wildest Dreams(L) 118 Morales 2-2-4 Gonzalez 15-1

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.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 4&up. Claiming $12,500. Purse: $24,000.

7 Lincoln Penny(L) 118 Silvera 5-5-6 Ortiz 30-1

8 Flying Masster(L) 118 Hill 7-2-5 Lakeman 8-1

9 Minescape(L) 118 Velasquez 5-7-2 Galluscio 7-2

10 Africanist(L) 118 Cohen 2-4-8 Canani 8-1

Also Eligible

11 Person of Interest(L) 118 Lezcano 4-6-8 Miranda 30-1

1a Mason's Comprise(L) 118 Perez 2-8-3 Grusmark 5-1

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.
