Alston Gunter was a determined winner in last and now makes first start since claimed by Dominic Galluscio. Al's Lark was just nose behind top selection last time and should have more to give in fourth start since two-month layoff. Rigby drops and owns fast figures on best efforts.

6Paddy Kunuckles(L)120Ortiz, Jr4-4-7Divitto5-2

Got a Hunch was clear-cut third in last and gets timid call in slow field. Like a Boss gets class relief after taking backward step in last; worth a look. Wrath of Cong was compromised by wide trip in last; price will be tempting.

5He's So Chic(L)118Velasquez2-1-3Friedman2-1

He's So Chic consistently logs the field's fastest late pace and final numbers. Vexor chased hot fractions when making first start since six-month layoff last time; dangerous. Alcomatch owns competitive numbers and has benefit of the rail; don't ignore.

7Still Shea to Me(L)121Ortiz, Jr3-3-2Barbara5-2

Bluegrassislegal drops after earning improved pace figure in last. Still Shea to Me has delivered three straight strong efforts; big-time player. La Gazelle adds blinkers and could wakeup at fat ticket.

7Concorde's Peace(L)118Castro4-2-2Ryerson12-1

Yo Blue displayed improved speed in last and fired swift 5-furlong drill on Valentine's Day; call based on price potential. Chrisandthecapper owns fast numbers and is training sharply for first start since November; very dangerous. Dangerous Hill compiled an eye-catching work tab for debut; follow the money.

7Beachview Two(L)120Ortiz, Jr7-4-xViolette, Jr3-1


Beachview Two logged solid work slate for first start with maiden claiming tag. Retired finished second in last three starts; trend continues? Everydoghashisday wheels back in a hurry after front-running fifth this past Saturday; very playable.

7Raffie's Star(L)123Lezcano1-6-2Scott20-1

Tancredi regressed in last after tallying swift numbers in prior three starts; rebounds. Money Only needed last and packs potent late kick on 'A' game. Rock Star Charlie is a front-end threat on best efforts. Quorum was a tough-trip fourth in last; worth long look at long price.

4Acquisitive(L)118Camacho, Jr5-4-7DeMario30-1


Promise Me a Cat makes peak start of form cycle and could be ideally positioned in the stalker's seat. Srumdiddlyumptious could play out as the controlling speed in first start since August. Singlet logs fast figs with machine-like consistency; be no surprise.

Dan's My Man is training with a purpose for first start since June and owns field's fastest late pace figures on best efforts. Afternoon Treat makes peak start of form cycle and owns fast back numbers. Handsome Harbor was a front-running winner in last and could play out as the main speed once again. Good New Shoes was a clear-cut second in last; right in the thick of this.
