Steel Bridge is fresh and drops to lifetime low for streaking McGaughey barn. Classic R and B owns speed and fast figs; dangerous. Namron exits swift race and gets class relief today; must consider.

8 Drogo(L) 112 Canchari 8-x-x Cesare 20-1

2b In Speight Ofitall(L1) 123 Dominguez x-x-x Dutrow, Jr 4-1

Willy Pay goes turf to dirt, makes peak start of form cycle and owns field's best numbers on 'A' game. Sokitumi Samurai was a game second in last; logical player. In Speight Ofitall debuts after firing 5-furlong bullet last week; stay tuned to the tote.

5 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 2yo. Purse: $70,000.

2 Polan(L1) 115 Velazquez x-x-x Pletcher 3-1

3 Palace Malice(L1) 118 Castellano x-x-x Pletcher 7-5

1 Guyana Ambassador(L) 118 Singh 7-x-x Persaud 20-1

4 Honorable Dillon(L1) 118 Leparoux x-x-x Kenneally 2-1

5 Fly Bye Pomeroy(L1) 118 Lezcano x-x-x Martin 6-1

1a Money in Return(L) 118 Lezcano 6-5-x Persaud 20-1

Honorable Dillon fired crisp half-mile from the gate this past Friday; best guess. Polan and Palace Malice are an uncoupled entry from Pletcher barn; neither would be a surprise. Fly Bye Pomeroy is by a high-percentage first-out sire; charting a must.

1 1/4 Mile. (Inner Turf). Maiden Special Weight. 3&up. Purse: $75,000.

1 Coach Royal(L) 119 Prado 2-2-12 Terranova,II 4-1

2 Duke of Rutherford(L) 123 Husbands 8-10-8 Good 20-1

3 Lure of the South(L) 119 Smith 4-4-3 Kelly 20-1

4 Fact(L) 123 Garcia 2-4-4 McLaughlin 3-1

5 Imaging(L) 123 Leparoux 2-3-5 McGaughey III 6-1

6 Night Site(L) 119 Lezcano 3-2-6 Mott 2-1

7 Suns Out Guns Out(L) 119 Maragh 5-2-12 Romans 5-1

8 Silver Endurance(L) 119 Castellano 6-5-x Nihei 15-1

Lure of the South was compromised by soft fractions in last two starts; price play in wide-open maiden field. Imaging was hard charging second in last and should have more to give in second start since seven-month absence; very playable. Night Site fired 3-furlong bullet since late-running third in last; logical, short-priced contender. Coach Royal has finished second in three of last four starts; must consider.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $20,000. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $28,000.

1 Point to Karakorum(L) 119 Espinoza 5-5-7 Odintz 30-1

2 There Goes Vinny(L) 112 Canchari 3-5-7 Rodriguez 5-1

3 Pegasus Papou(L) 123 Ortiz, Jr 4-4-7 Persaud 10-1

8 The Hooman(L1) 119 Castro x-x-x Bush 12-1

9 Johnny Beautiful(L) 112 Ortiz 12-3-6 Rodriguez 4-1

Life of the City returns to dirt and makes first start with maiden claiming tag; weakness of field is selection's strength. Ali's Winner packs late kick and could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues. Raffie's Factor is fleet-footed and fresh; dangerous. Johnny Beautiful returns from 75-day freshener for Rudy Rodriguez; must consider.

6

1 Mile. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $16,000. Purse: $32,000.

1 Amply Rewarded(L) 121 Dominguez 1-5-3 Parisella 7-2

6 Cranberry Queen(L) 121 Blake-Baeza 11-7-10 Giambanco 50-1

7 Alykela 121 Lezcano 4-7-3 DiSanto 20-1

8 Surround Sound(L) 114 Coa 2-3-5 Serey 4-1

9 Perfect Embrace(L) 114 Canchari 7-3-1 Gullo 4-1

10 Bedda Regina(L) 117 Maragh 7-1-1 Brown 15-1

Surround Sound logged solid final fraction in last and will be aided by today's longer trip; rates close call. Perfect Embrace drops, gets favorable surface switch and owns fast back figs. Jardenia logged four tight works since winning lone start at Belmont Park; big-time player. Bedda Regina failed to beat a runner when 85 cents on the dollar last out; better price today.

7 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $72,000.

13 Mizzen Donald(L) 121 Desormeaux 6-5-7 Hess, Jr 6-1

14 Victory for V L Ts(L) 121 Velasquez 3-2-1 Rice 5-1

Anna Sophia gets class relief and rider upgrade and should pack amplified kick at 7 furlongs. Strategic Missile was a front-running winner at 39-1 last out and looms a big-time threat and big-time price once again. Preach Tome Daddy fired two swift half-mile works since speed and fade in last; right in the thick of this.

1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf). Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $64,000.

1 Majestic Raffy(L) 121 Lezcano 5-6-7 Aquilino 10-1

2 Isn'tlovejustgrand(L) 121 Espinoza 2-2-2 Aquilino 5-1

3 Rocky F(L) 121 Alvarado 4-1-1 Benzel 5-2

5 Deciphering Dreams(L) 121 Dominguez 4-1-11 Dutrow, Jr 7-2

6 Wishful Tomcat(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 6-5-7 Arroyo 15-1

7 Stormy Success(L) 121 Desormeaux 6-6-8 Toscano, Jr 30-1

8 Ampersand(L) 119 Nakatani 1-4-1 Violette, Jr 2-1

Ampersand overcame slow pace and wide trip when a clear-cut winner in last; more to come. Isn'tlovejustgrand makes third start of form cycle and should benefit from today's added ground. Majestic Raffy made menacing middle move in last and should be nearing peak in third outing since six-month layoff.

7 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). Maiden Special Weight. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $55,000.

Main Track Only

11 Pennymine(L) 119 No Rider 6-x-x Schosberg 3-1

12 Lumberjane(L) 119 Ortiz, Jr 8-x-x D'Alessandro 5-1

1a Sheila's Gold(L) 119 Espinoza 10-x-x Feron 15-1

Hlao Roo displayed improved speed in last and could be primed for breakthrough effort in third start of form cycle. Crypto Kitten owns fast figs but has failed as the fave in five of 10 lifetime starts. Eurosensation could be aided by today's additional furlong. Flirtatious Spring is lightly raced and still developing; dangerous.
