Abra gets class relief and projects as the main speed on the rail with proper ride. Mewannarose regressed in last after fast-figured placing in prior; rebound potential. Jacobson entry: Start Jumping failed to deliver best on wet track last time and mate Pass the Tap should possess enhanced kick with turnback to 6 furlongs.

9 Night Maneuver(L) 113 Franco 8-6-3 Contessa 3-1

So Scott owns fast late pace numbers and kick should be amplified at sprint; very playable. Crafty Dreamer won last and consistently fires strong efforts. Maneuver owns swift final numbers but take suspicious price plunge; must take the good with the bad. Dehere of the Cat packs a potent late kick on 'A' game; consider.

Tummel notched improved internal numbers in last; worth long look. Majestic Number was an easy winner for this price in last; be no surprise.

1a Carameaway(L) 117 Morales 2-7-4 Friedman 10-1

Friedman entry: Carameaway was a strong second in last and mate Dreaming of Cara owns two wins and two seconds in four inner-track starts; potent pairing. Harbor Mist is fleet-footed and will prove very tough on an uncontested lead.
