6 Lucci the Lion(L) 118 Rodriguez 3-6-5 DiPrima 12-1

7 Vee's Accolade(L) 118 Velasquez 5-9-4 Barbara 4-1

Tiger Willie closes and could get perfect setup in field where fractions could get fast and furious. Upward gets class relief and could play out as the controlling speed on the rail with aggressive ride. Cay to Pomeroy also is fleet-footed but could regress at short ticket after hard-fought placing in last.

Hillary D tallied solid final fraction when a tough-trip second in last at Prx; call based on price potential. House On Toilsome drops and owns fast figures on 'A' game. Mrs. Calabash owns fast figs but has been sidelined since August; must take the good with the bad.

5 Sandcat(L) 118 Ortiz 8-2-6 Kimmel 10-1

6 Storm(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 1-x-x Pletcher 5-1

Mental Iceberg gets class relief after wide trip in Grade 2 Jerome last out; set for best in third start of form cycle. Sidearm runs late in sprints and could be aided by today's added ground. Sandcat took backward step in last after fast-figured placing in prior; bounce-back potential.

8 Utopian Wife(L) 121 Cohen 6-10-11 Brown 4-1

9 See See See(L) 116 Esquivel 2-3-2 Shevy 6-1

Utopian Wife notched improved late pace figure in last and should benefit from today's longer trip. Cake N Cookies owns sprinter's speed, starts from the fence and could play out as the dominant front-runner. Lil Tiffy was pace and position compromised in last; must consider.

7 Broadway Music Gal(L) 118 Ortiz 4-7-6 Englehart 12-1

8 Mama Zee(L) 118 Velasquez 2-1-7 Rodriguez 6-1

Rain Forest wheels back in a hurry after riding "gold rail" en route to clear-cut score on Saturday; call based on price potential. Chippette is speedy and will prove very tough on an unchallenged lead. Conga Bella packs potent late kick and will be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues.

8 Woelf Den(L) 120 Castro 3-3-9 McLaughlin 5-1

9 Killer Crossover(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 4-4-x Pletcher 5-1

Away Game earned fast late pace figure in debut and logged four tight works for return from 61-day freshener. Howl has trained sharply since clear-cut second in last; very dangerous. Empower gets the meds after failing to deliver in well-bet debut at GP last month; right in the thick of this.

12 Awake At T Wire(L) 120 Ortiz 1-3-8 Nevin 6-1

Also Eligible

13 Money Only(L) 113 Esquivel 6-4-6 Barbara 8-1

Awake At T Wire bested a pricier field last out and owns foundation on the final numbers. Holy Invader owns speed and fast figures but takes troubling price plunge in first start since claimed; must take the good with the bad. Pasta Lover displayed improved speed in last; very interesting.

2b Dan's Gold(L) 118 Garcia 4-1-9 Contessa 10-1

9 Dr Disco(L) 118 Luzzi 4-7-3 Brown 20-1

Be Bullish tallied swift final fraction when a determined winner in first start for DAS/Jacobson; pairs up. The Big Deluxe is riding a three-race winning streak and owns tractable running style; very dangerous. Marriedtothemusic was a dominant, front-running winner in last; right in the thick of this.

5 1/2 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $16,000. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $23,000.

8 Canela Rose(L) 121 Teator 6-4-6 Kelly 6-1

9 Mini Muffin(L) 121 Camacho, Jr 7-5-5 Polanco 20-1

Carole Lee drops to lifetime low after logging three tight works this month in preparation for first start since November; primed and ready. No It's Not Me was a tenacious third at 18-1 last time; regressses today at short ticket. Mini Muffin could land in exotics at fat number if pace meltdown ensues. Signoria Sofia is another long-priced runner that could impact with hot fractions.
