9 Heartfelt Jazz(L) 120 Garcia 4-3-3 Contessa 6-1

10 Happy Recap(L) 120 Lopez 5-8-3 Jacobson 5-2

Very Precious drops and could be ideally placed in field where fractions could get hot and hectic. Happy Recap is speedy and returns to maiden ranks; very dangerous. Recovered also is fleet of foot but lacks staying power; must take the good with the bad.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. Allowance Optional Claiming. 4&up. Purse: $69,000.

2 Irsaal(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 2-3-5 McLaughlin 7-5

6 This Hard Land(L) 118 Arroyo 4-5-3 Ubillo 20-1

1a Aussi Austin(L) 120 Beato 1-5-6 Rodriguez 3-1

7 Modern Child(L) 118 Luzzi 7-1-5 Imperio 12-1

Irsaal tallied improved final fraction in last and should have more to give in third start of form cycle. Rush Now was a front-running winner in last and looms the main speed once again; big-time danger. Joan's Choice is rested and owns three wins on winterized oval; must consider.

15 Explosive Smile(L) 121 Beato 7-6-5 Persaud 20-1

16 Locks of Gold(L) 121 Arroyo 4-4-4 Quartarolo 15-1

You Take the Cake is 0-for-17 but drops and packs field's most potent late kick. Tassinaia displayed improved speed in last and could prove very tough on a soft lead. Rufus Ruth lost a head bob for top honors last time; must consider. Signoria Sofia was just a neck behind 'Ruth' when third at 32-1 last time; worth long look at long price.

1 1/16 Mile. The KINGS POINT. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $100,000.

1 Moneyinyour Pocket(L) 118 Husbands 4-2-6 Baker 12-1

5 Awesome Vision(L) 124 Ortiz, Jr 3-3-1 Albertrani 3-1

6 Zivo(L) 122 Castellno,Jr 1-1-2 Brown 7-5

Zivo made sustained rally when an ultra-game winner in last; more to come. Comandante regressed in last after fast-figured, front-running win in prior; can take this with rebound effort. Awesome Vision owns four wins on the inner track; must consider.

Also Eligible

13 Antone Suavey(L) 118 Garcia 10-9-10 Quartarolo 30-1

1a Woburn(L) 118 Studart 8-7-5 Persaud 5-1

One Smokin Cat notched improved late pace and final figures when fourth in last; continues forward development. Rap d'Oro turns back to a sprint and should pack amplified late wallop; very playable. Corybant's speed gives him a puncher's chance. Mayberry Madness has been idle for 355 days but owns fast figures on 'A' game; mixed message.

1 Mile. Claiming $35,000. 4&up. Purse: $53,000.

1 Warrior Up(L) 118 Arroyo 7-8-8 Ubillo 30-1

6 Two Is to Many(L) 118 DeCarlo 8-3-8 Maragh 6-1

7 Sacred Ground(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 3-5-3 D'Alessandro 12-1

8 Socialsaul(L) 118 Lopez 2-1-9 Balsamo 6-1

9 Scotus(L) 120 Garcia 1-1-1 Mazza 9-2

Sacred Ground was compromised by soft flow when a close-up third in last; rates call based on price in contentious mile. Scotus is riding a four-race winning streak and is a hot commodity at the claim box; very dangerous. Groomedforvictory owns speed and fast figures on best efforts.

1 Say Nay Nay(L) 120 Teator 10-x-x Donato 30-1

13 Effinex 120 Montanez 5-x-x DeMola 12-1

14 Royal Posse(L) 115 Rice 5-6-9 Contessa 20-1

Woke Up Tired adds blinkers and fired 3-furlong bullet since solid placing last time; more to come. Forever Utopia logged fast numbers in both inner-track starts; dangerous. Freddie G exits sprints and should be favorably positioned in big field.

8

1 Mile & 70 Yards. Allowance. 4&up. NY Bred. Purse: $57,000.

1 Sunnyinseabrook(L) 118 Montanez 3-1-7 Gyarmati 15-1

10 Private Irving A(L) 118 Castro 1-2-4 Antonucci 12-1

Also Eligible

11 Cat Man Fu(L) 121 Camacho, Jr 1-4-3 Horton, Jr 30-1

Jesses Giant Dunk tallied rapid final fractions in both inner-track outings; rates close call. Escape to the Moon hit the wall after 6 furlongs last time but can prove a tough customer on a soft lead. Sea to Sky owns fast figs on best efforts but failed as the favorite in last two starts.

9

1 Mile & 1 Furlong. The STYMIE (formerly run as "Albert The Great"). 3&up. Purse: $100,000.

6 Percussion(L) 121 DeCarlo 2-4-3 Pletcher 5-2

7 Dawly(L) 117 Arroyo 1-2-1 Rodriguez 5-1

Percussion projects as the main speed in compact Stymie Stakes. Gourmet Dancer met tougher last time at GP and packs potent late kick on best efforts. Mail was a front-running winner in lone inner-track start; right in the thick of this.

10 Verbosity(L) 118 Castro 2-4-5 Hushion 7-2

11 Bug Juice(L) 113 Rice 4-6-3 Rice 6-1

Lucci the Lion earned improved final fraction when hard-charging winner in last; pairs up. Won Great Classic took backward step in last after fast-figured win in prior; bounce-back threat. William Thomas was an ultra-game second in last and consistently delivers strong efforts. Sportswriter was reclaimed by DAS/Jacobson last out; right in the thick of this.
