6Smarty Burns(L)120Castro8-5-xMott6-1

Ferlin Husky makes peak start of form cycle after strong placing in last; more to come. Schivarelli fired 5-furlong bullet on Dec. 29; could be the goods. Killer Crossover makes second start after even fourth in debut; logical.

6Sacred Ground(L)118Ortiz3-3-2D'Alessandro10-1


Scotus notched swift late pace figure when a convincing winner in last; pairs up. Groomedforvictory is firing bullets for first start since claimed and owns speed and swift numbers on 'A' game; very playable. Dan and Sheila regressed in last after fast-figured win in prior; rebound potential.

8Essence of a Hero(L1)115Esquivelx-x-xBelsoeur12-1

Let's Discuss was pace and trip compromised in last and should move forward in second start since four-month layoff. Kick'n Butt makes first start with maiden claiming tag. Maybrys Challenge owns speed but lacks heart; mixed message.

1aPatriotic Duty(L)118Castro9-7-7Persaud5-1

Ludo Bagman was a change-of-pace third when bested by a repeated winner in last. Joking makes peak start of form cycle after making wide middle move in most recent; very playable. Summer Sands turns back to sprint and should pack amplified late kick; dangerous. Mi Hijo broke maiden in last and owns fast back numbers; worth long look.

8Campion Lane(L)120Arroyo3-9-5Sciacca20-1

First Ranger passed horses at very point of call when third in debut; call based on price. The Rhythmisright set spirited splits in debut and should be tighter in second start. Tapitation compiled tight work tab for first outing; stay tuned to tote.

Armed U S A has won two in a row at Prx and appears ready for prime time in current condition. El Grande Patron is speedy, rested and owns win on inner surface; very dangerous. Sportswriter makes first start for Rudy Rodriguez and consistently logs fast figs.

14Escape to the Moon(L)118Castellano, Jr1-2-2Brown7-2

Ego Friendly logged lifetime best late pace number when a late-running second in last; needs help up front. Sea to Sky was a fast-figured second as the favorite in last; bounces today Saturday Appeal looms a front-running threat on best efforts. Escape to the Moon owns sprinter's speed and must be factored into mix if able to escape AE list.

8Beautiful Me(L)121Montanez8-4-xGalluscio12-1

9Lil Tiffy(L)121Morales2-2-6Matties3-1

High Inflation is 0-for-17 but bested a next-out winner when second in last and meets weak field. Tassinaia gets class relief and is riding a forward line on final figures. Myperfectvalentine makes first start since moving to Dominic Galluscio barn; must consider. Lil Tiffy has finished second in last two starts; right in the thick of this.
