9 Sinistra(L1) 120 Luzzi 6-6-x Grusmark 8-1

Bellardo gets class relief after showing improved speed on turf last out; call in weak opener. Sinistra gets Lasix and makes first start with maiden claiming tag; wakeup potential. Jones entry: Fish Hooks is fleet-footed and mate Sunrise Lover was much-improved third this past Sunday; just one goes with Studart listed on both.

7 Bird Fu(L) 121 Velasquez 3-6-x Jacobson 4-1

Glorious View is riding a forward line on the numbers and logged two, crisp half-mile works since last start. Nifty Shindig compiled four tight works since besting a next-out winner when second in last at CD; very dangerous. Hold It is speedy and will prove very tough on a soft lead.

1 Basalt(L) 118 Arroyo 1-3-1 Rodriguez 4-1

2 Moonshine Bay(L) 113 Ortiz 2-2-3 Canani 5-2

3 Shipmaker(L) 120 Alvarado 1-3-7 Asmussen 12-1

5 So Scott(L) 118 Dominguez 2-3-7 Jacobson 3-1

6 Act One Scene One(L) 118 Velasquez 1-9-1 Dutrow, Jr 7-2

So Scott consistently logs the field's fastest late pace figures and should receive ideal, front-end setup. Moonshine Bay is fleet-footed and owns fast final numbers; could easily take this. Act One Scene One compiled eye-catching training tab for first start since swift-figured win on Nov. 17; very dangerous.

6 Furlongs. 4&up. NY Bred. Maiden Claiming $16,000. Purse: $23,000.

1 Cameron Canyon(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 2-6-5 Galluscio 5-2

2 Shy Humor(L) 116 Ortiz 5-7-2 Hennig 4-1

3 Purple Pico(L) 114 Tomas 6-4-6 O'Brien 12-1

8 Say Lancelot(L) 121 Studart 8-9-11 Figueroa 50-1

9 Storming Past(L) 121 Arroyo 8-12-x Contessa 30-1

10 Commanding Officer(L) 116 Garcia 10-3-11 Domino 8-1

11 Hunt Club Special 114 Battula 9-x-x O'Brien 20-1

12 Hidden Vow(L) 121 Hill 7-5-4 Quick 12-1

Cameron Canyon was a clear-cut second to a runaway winner in last and should have more to give in second start since three-month layoff. Inquest would be aided by pace meltdown and is training sharply for first start since September. Hidden Vow goes turf to dirt and long to short and would be aided by pace meltdown.

6 Furlongs. 3yo. Fillies. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $60,000.

1 Cubicle Queen(L) 120 Alvarado 4-2-x Baker 4-1

2 Raven Rise(L) 120 Luzzi 4-2-6 Kimmel 20-1

7 Madre Ditutticapi(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 3-7-x Hushion 5-1

8 Masasi(L) 120 Dominguez 3-3-x Donk 3-1

Masasi gets favorable cutback to 6 furlongs and fired crisp half-mile drill on New Year's Eve. Cubicle Queen could prove very tough to catch as the main speed on the fence; very dangerous. Merry Meadow has delivered strong efforts in all five starts; right in the thick of this.

6 Furlongs. 3yo. Fillies. NY Bred. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $50,000.

2 Bileaps and Bounds(L) 113 Coa 7-x-x Hertler 30-1

11 Fu Peggi Sue(L1) 120 Smith x-x-x Hertler 15-1

1a Group Therapy(L) 120 Alvarado 3-5-6 Kimmel 8-1

Curlin n Twirlin earned solid numbers when a game second in last; more to come. Start It Up has worked sharply since tough-trip fourth in debut; improvement expected. Light Weight compiled sneaky-good work tab and attracted Dominguez for debut; could be the goods.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 3yo. Fillies. THE BUSANDA. Purse: $100,000.

1 Princess of Sylmar(L) 118 Maragh 1-1-4 Pletcher 5-2

3 Asiya 116 Castro 1-3-x McLaughlin 2-1

4 Ruby Lips(L) 116 Ortiz, Jr 3-1-2 Dutrow, Jr 8-1

5 By Golly Molly(L) 116 Alvarado 3-4-4 Kenneally 12-1

6 Coconut Shrimp(L) 116 Dominguez 6-2-2 Pletcher 5-1

Princess of Sylmar tallied swift final fraction when an easy winner in last; 3-year-old filly with a future. Kiss the Lady is speedy, rested and could prove a very tough customer on an unchallenged lead. Ruby Lips fired 5-furlong bullet for first start in 62 days; worth a look.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 3yo. THE JEROME. (Grade II). Purse: $200,000.

1 Siete de Oros(L) 117 Arroyo 3-1-1 Preciado 20-1

7 Vegas No Show(L) 119 Lopez 9-2-1 Breen 6-1

8 James Jingle(L) 115 Castro 3-2-5 Kelly 30-1

Long River tallied rapid late pace figure when a game maiden winner in last; half-mile bullet on Dec. 28 seals the deal. Vyjack earned swift numbers when winning both starts; very dangerous. Mudflats was fast-figured winner with addition of blinkers last time and now makes first start for Doug O'Neill; right in the thick of contentious Jerome.

6 Furlongs. 4&up. Claiming $12,500. Purse: $22,000.

2 It's Truly Ahvee(L) 115 Ortiz 10-1-9 Rice 6-1

3 Crushin Rock(L) 123 Ortiz, Jr 4-1-6 Levine 10-1

4 Think I'm Hooked(L) 120 Maragh 4-4-8 Contessa 8-1

1 Coalition(L) 120 Dominguez 9-8-6 Jacobson 6-5

8 Why Argue(L) 120 Smith 6-1-8 Hennig 15-1

9 Jackin My Style(L) 120 Arroyo 9-9-4 Persaud 50-1

10 Ambassador Bridge(L) 120 Alvarado 6-4-5 Gyarmati 12-1

1a Wanstead(L) 120 Dominguez 7-2-9 Jacobson 6-5

11 Pavlov's Dog(L) 120 Davis 6-5-5 Fisher 50-1

12 Bulldog On a Bone(L) 113 Tomas 3-4-3 Aquilino 15-1

It's Truly Ahvee has been idle since June but projects as the controlling speed on the rail in wide-open nightcap. Missilewhileuwork also is fleet-footed and will prove a handful on the lead if able to outbreak top selection. Wanstead was horrendous in last but owns very fast back figs and drops in first start since claimed by David Jacobson; your move. Bulldog on a Bone could be the prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues.
