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.

14 Escape to the Moon(L) 118 Castellano, Jr 1-2-2 Brown 7-2

Ego Friendly logged lifetime best late pace number when a late-running second in last; needs help up front.

9 Lil Tiffy(L) 121 Morales 2-2-6 Matties 3-1

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.
