6 Majestic Marquet(L) 118 Velasquez 3-1-1 Rodriguez 8-1

Seal Cove logged career best late pace figure on Spa sod in summer of '11; rates close call. Paris Vegas also notched top final fraction on Saratoga turf and is training sharply; very playable.

Main Track Only

8 Skyfall(L) 116 Velazquez 5-3-1 Pletcher 5-2

Maximova has tallied solid late pace figures when winning all three starts; more to come. Midnight Watch is fresh and will prove a very tough customer on a soft lead. Kitten's Dumplings is riding a two-race winning streak and is 1-for-1 at Saratoga; big-time threat.

Main Track Only

14 Alvear(L1) 119 No Rider x-x-x Terranova,II 5-1

Indian Style takes potent class drop and gets favorable cutback in distance; call based on price potential. Where's Danny closed strongly in stateside debut and should pack intensified late kick at shorter sprint; could easily take this. Show Some Lovin could play out as the dominant speed; big-time player. Lasso is rested and right in the thick of this on best efforts.
