5Grand Mere(L)120Alvarado1-2-2Rodriguez4-5

Grand Mere was freshened after logging fast late pace figure when winning last month; more to come. Endless Chatter owns sprinter's speed and could play out as the dominant front-runner. Go Olivia Go makes first start since claimed by David Jacobson; very playable.

7Burning Flame(L)118Davis1-6-5Contessa20-1

Rambling was compromised by rough start in last; rebounds today. Warrior James was a determined pace-pressing winner in last; big-time threat. Bold and Ready shold be aided by cutback to sprint; right in the thick of this.

7Here's Zealicious(L)120Hill1-1-11Kazamias4-1

Here's Zealicious logged wire to wire wins in last two and projects as the main speed once again. Cinematize closes and will be in the graden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Gambling Geraldine was a fast-figured winner in last; dangerous.

7Start Jumping(L)120DeCarlo4-2-xSacco5-2


Big Foot Ben gets class relief and owns an edge on the final numbers. Telegraph Hill gets the meds and has trained sharply since last start; very playable. Start Jumping will be aided by turnback to sprint.

9My Cousin Eddie(L)118Ortiz6-3-3Gullo6-1

Handy Andy took backward step in last after pairing up sold efforts in last two; bounces back today. Superstructure was eased as the favorite in last; recoups losses today? King Keene regressed in last after solid third two back; must consider.

7Economic Forecast(L)121Ortiz, Jr4-4-4Violette, Jr2-1

Cross Gate displayed improved speed when second to a runaway winner in last; wire to wire today. Artist Colony makes peak start of form cycle after finishing just two lengths behind top selection in last; could easily close the gap. Economic Forest is fresh and logged solid numbers in all three starts.

7Tweet Me(L)120Morales1-3-6Ness5-2


My Two Great Kids compiled eye-catching work tab for first start since October; nice fit with the locals at this level. Siero lived up to tote support when an 81/2-length winner in debut; could easily take another. My Way Or Dubaiway wheels back in a hurry and gets favorable cutback to sprint; very interesting.

5We Need V L T's(L)118Castro3-4-4Persaud12-1



Expression overcame bad start and wide trip to win last; pairs up. Ann's Smart Dancer makes first start since claimed by Bruce Levine; worth long look. Sacred Success switches from erstwhile Rick Dutrow stable to Rudy Rodriguez; need more?

2bLady Jarlyn(L)116Lezcano2-5-5Persaud12-1



Miss Conception adds blinkers, gets rider upgrade and could be sitting on big-time forward move in weak nightcap. Winds of Change has finished second at short odds in last two starts; continues trend? T C Lane owns speed but has lost ground in the stretch in every start; handle with care at short ticket. Westerday owns competitive numbers on best efforts.
