2Escape to the Moon(L)122Franco2-7-1Brown6-1
More horse racing
Ground Force is fresh and packs potent late kick on 'A' game. Comandante is speedy and will prove very tough on a soft lead. Escape to the Moon was second at 53-1 last out; don't dismiss.
61/2 Furlongs. 3&up Fillies & Mares. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse $96,000.
Discreetly Elusive needed last and should offer better price of the two Pletcher runners. Sweet Whiskey, the other Pletcher starter, owns speed and fast figs; could easily take this. Tarnished fired half-mile bullet since even fourth in last; don't ignore.
51/2 Furlongs. 2yo. Fillies. THE ASTORIA.
2Moment Is Right(L)120Rosario1-x-xWard3-1
Decked Out defeated a next-out winner when making a solid rally to take debut; more to come. Moment Is Right visually and numerically impressed when winning debut; could easily romp again. One Minute overcame rough trip to win last by more than seven lengths; right in the thick of this.

9Calling Me Home(L)118Alvarado2-3-7Adsit8-1
Now Power logged deceptively fast final fraction when fifth in debut; more to give. Blame Dixie was favored in debut at Spa last summer and is firing bullets for return. Strong Incentive compiled eye-catching work tab for first start for Chad Brown; follow the money.

5No Wunder124Ortiz, Jr.2-1-3Voss6-1
Main Track Only
Cordero was a front-running winner in last and pulls seven to 15 pounds from field; call based on price. Roman Approval could play out as the main speed on the rail; very dangerous. Elmutahid also is fleet-footed and needs aggressive handling for best chance.
1 Mile. 3&up. NY Bred. Allowance.
9Jack's R Wild(L)122Rice7-5-4Davis30-1
10Drama King(L)114Ortiz, Jr.1-3-3Rodriguez7-2
Repent Twice consistently logs fast final fractions and should log John Parisella's first win since coming out of retirement. Drama King is rested and looms the controlling speed in big field. Damage Control also is quick from the gate and compiled tight work tab for first start in 55 days.

11Marbre Rose(L)120Ortiz, Jr.6-1-1Clement7-2
Lemon Point owns tactical speed and notched a win and a third in two starts on Belmont sod. Carolina Shag logged determined victory in first start on Belmont grass; price will be tempting. Radiator should pack amplified kick with cutback to 7 furlongs.

Main Track Only
14I'll Take Charge(FTL)117Rosario2-x-xMott9-5
Tiztalented tallied swift late pace figure when a tough-trip sixth in debut; more to come. Sudestada should be favorably positioned near the front in bulky nightcap. Robe has trained with a purpose since speed and fade in debut at GP; very dangerous. Vouch for Kitten moves to rail after chasing fast fractions from post 10 in debut at CD; worth long look. Susie's Baby was dq'd after apparent victory in last at Keeneland; right in the thick of this.
