7 Lucci the Lion(L) 120 Arroyo 3-2-3 DiPrima 6-1

9 Swift Taylor(L) 122 Alvarado 7-2-6 Bond 12-1

Resolute Babe owns sprinter's speed and could play out as the controlling front-runner at longer trip. Flirtatious Spring is fresh and could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues. Golden Cheetah goes turf to dirt and could pack amplified late kick; worth long look at long price.

11 Sandy'z Slew(L) 120 Velasquez 2-9-3 Schosberg 9-2

16 East Coast Express(L) 117 Worrie 4-4-7 Quick 20-1

Bi Light of Day owns the field's fastest final figures on best efforts; call in weak nightcap. Make Your Point displayed improved speed when a pole clear for second in last; very dangerous. Rose Quartz makes first start with a maiden claiming tag; very interesting. Race and Shine made sustained rally when a tough-trip third in last; don't overlook. Kevin's Steel owns speed and drops and must be factored into the mix if able to escape AE list.
