8Macho Muchacho(L)118Velasquez1-1-1Parisella8-5

Powhatan County projects as the main speed with aggressive ride. Macho Muchacho is riding a five-race winning streak; very playable. Bail Out the Banks was a determined winner at this level in last; must consider.

5Clever Cookie(L)116Ortiz2-4-3Jerkens9-5

Gold Lady owns sprinter's speed and could secure unchallenged lead with proper ride. Clever Cookie was a clear-cut second to a runaway winner in last; dangerous. Kiss an Angel adds blinkers for dirt debut; very interesting.

4Our Entourage(L)118Lezcano6-7-1Jacobson7-5

5Game Token(L)117Luzzi3-4-6Schosberg8-1

Our Entourage packs potent late kick on best efforts and fired half-mile bullet for first start in 104 days. Political Justice was speed sharpened in sprint last time; very dangerous as the controlling front-runner. Punster logs fast figs with machine-like consistency; can easily take this.

6Funny Money(L)121Cohen2-x-xBrown4-5

7McGillycuddy's Gal(L)114Tomas2-6-7Ferraro12-1

Ms. Starella is fresh, owns speed and could capitalize on soft lead in weak field. Swift Taylor's late kick should play well at longer trip, but filly has failed as the favorite in last two starts. Funny Money was a fast-figured second in debut; big-time danger.


6 Furlongs. Starter Optional Claiming. 3yo. Fillies. Purse: $48,000.

8Hoboken Honey(L)118Ortiz, Jr1-3-xServis10-1

Agualinda didn't deliver best in last but owns fast late pace figures on 'A' game; rebounds. Talent N Passion is fleet-footed and makes first start for Rudy Rodriguez; very playable. Hoboken Honey hails from white-hot Jason Servis stable; price will be tempting.


6 Furlongs. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $64,000.

7Sentimental Lass(L)118Alvarado4-7-2Bond15-1

1aIsn't She Grand(L)118Cohen5-7-3Rodriguez2-1

Clear Pasaj looms the dominant speed on the rail if hustled from the bell in ultra-contentious field. Centrique turns back to a sprint and will be the prime beneficiary if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Well Kept is more than good enough on best efforts.

7Talk Therapy(L)118Cohen6-1-2Gonzalez6-1

Late Starter wheels back in a hurry for new connections after top-figured score last week; more to come. Talk Therapy is training sharply for return from helpful freshener; dangerous. Visionary Man regressed in last after fast-numbered placing in prior; rebound potential.

6Fight for V L T's(L)113Ortiz7-5-1Reynolds30-1


Verbosity tallied improved final fraction in last and should be well served by probable pace dynamics. Won Great Classic owns speed, fast figs and starts from the fence; dangerous. Flying Zealous has won five of six; obvious player.


6 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $35,000-$25,000. Purse: $35,000.

5Southside Sis(L)111Ortiz2-2-5Contessa6-1

6Madre Ditutticapi(L)116Ortiz, Jr2-6-3Hushion5-1



Southside Sis tallied solid late pace figure two starts back and now adds blinkers in first outing since claimed by Gary Contessa; set for best. Gravitate was a fast-figured second in last and fired 5-furlong bullet in the interim; very dangerous. Madre Ditutticapi is speedy and the one that must be caught; big-time player. Magna G would be aided by pace meltdown.
