Brian is training with a purpose for first start since October and should be favorably placed near the front. Hear the Footsteps earned fast late pace and final figs when winning last; could easily take another. Best Actor should pack enhanced kick with cutback to 6 furlongs.

8 Reserved Quality(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 6-2-5 Gyarmati 10-1

Nevada Kid was pace and positioned compromised when a game second last time; added distance is key. Much Stronger was done in by hot fractions last time and will prove very tough with softer flow. Terminus was a hand-ridden winner in last; right in the thick of this.

6 What You Know(L) 118 Trujillo 1-x-x Nihei 4-1

Majestic Marquet logged three tight works since winning second straight last out; more to come. Girl Code tallied swift internal and final figs when winning last; very dangerous. My Happy Face owns speed and fast numbers; logical.

11 Enchante(L) 119 No Rider 6-4-2 Rodriguez 8-1

12 Delightful Quality(L) 119 Castellano 1-2-3 Albertrani 3-1

Ballistic Sue is 2-for-2 on Belmont grass and projects as the dominant speed. Glamour Puss owns fast final fractions and sharp form and should relish switch to sod; very playable. Sensible Lady won Pim stakes last out and could easily take this with similar effort.

9 Cherokee Fog(L) 117 Lezcano 5-4-1 Zito 15-1

10 Jazzington(L) 119 Saez 6-1-2 Miceli 10-1

Faceineveryflower cruised to easy maiden score in last and should have more to give in second start since March. Mystic Rhyme drops and returns to dirt; worth long look. Mrs. Calabash owns solid numbers and is working sharply for first start since January.

9 Jitney(L) 122 Rosario 2-2-2 Hertler 5-1

10 Drinksonthehouse(L) 122 Saez 2-9-1 Violette, Jr 10-1

Princess Mara tallied career best number when winning first start for DAS/Jacobson duo; more to come. Golden Galaxy is fleet-footed and has won three in a row; big-time danger. Jitney was second to a runaway winner in last and should move forward in second start since five-month absence.

Main Track Only

11 Kevin Silverlaspia(L) 122 No Rider 3-4-4 Shivmangal 5-1

Smiling Bob tallied solid final fraction when an even fourth in last; forward move predicted in second start since January. Smoke Town tallied hard-fought victory in first start on Belmont turf and fired 5-furlong bullet last week; very playable. Out of Your Mind showed improved speed when in contention until deep stretch last out; price will be tempting.

7 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). The ASTRONOMIA. 3yo. Fillies. Purse: $85,000.

1 Exchange Cat(L) 118 Velasquez 3-2-1 Rice 15-1

2 Barbie Wire(L) 118 Castellano 1-3-2 Brown 7-2

3 Bella Castani(L) 122 Lezcano 7-1-1 Clement 4-1

7 Gritty Gal(L) 118 Ortiz 1-3-2 Rice 20-1

8 Coarsegold(L) 122 Bravo 4-1-1 Hennig 8-1

Fab Flowers made wide, sustained rally when a solid second in last; call based on price potential. Silsita stopped after chasing hot fractions in Kentucky Oaks but has trained strongly in the interim and is 1-for-1 on grass; very playable. Bella Castani gets favorable cutback in distance after failing at 70 cents on the dollar last out; short ticket once again.

15 You Take the Cake(L) 119 Ortiz 2-5-2 Lostritto 5-1

16 Binsky's Gold(L) 119 Maragh 6-2-3 Balsamo 8-1

Galaxy Gal is 0-for-16 but makes quick return after late-running sixth last week; weakness of field is selection's strength. Coralita displayed improved speed in last and is bred to handle switch to grass. Miz Owell gets class relief and logged three sharp works since last start; big-time player. Shewreckstheplace is competitive on best efforts.
