4 Kiss an Angel(L) 121 Maragh 9-4-x Brown 8-5

5 Clever Cookie(L) 116 Ortiz 2-4-3 Jerkens 9-5

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.

3

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 4&up. Claiming $35,000-$25,000. Purse: $41,000.

1 Induce(L) 120 Alvarado 1-3-1 Asmussen 3-1

3 Punster(L) 118 Velasquez 2-2-5 Jacobson 5-2

4 Our Entourage(L) 118 Lezcano 6-7-1 Jacobson 7-5

5 Game Token(L) 117 Luzzi 3-4-6 Schosberg 8-1

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.

4

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $55,000.

1 Love Is Key Kaz(L) 121 Camacho, Jr 6-9-10 Polanco 50-1

6 Funny Money(L) 121 Cohen 2-x-x Brown 4-5

7 McGillycuddy's Gal(L) 114 Tomas 2-6-7 Ferraro 12-1

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.

5

1 Lisalisalee(L) 118 Luzzi 1-1-12 Araya 12-1

7 Seven Dreams(L) 118 Hill 4-2-3 Esler 8-1

8 Hoboken Honey(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 1-3-x Servis 10-1

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.

2 Clear Pasaj(L) 115 Ortiz 1-2-1 Levine 6-1

7 Sentimental Lass(L) 118 Alvarado 4-7-2 Bond 15-1

1a Isn't She Grand(L) 118 Cohen 5-7-3 Rodriguez 2-1

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.

7

1 Mile & 70 Yards. Starter Optional Claiming. 4&up. Purse: $56,000.

1 Burned Bridges(L) 115 Coa 5-3-6 Persaud 12-1

6 Late Starter(L) 115 Ortiz 1-1-1 Brown 3-5

7 Talk Therapy(L) 118 Cohen 6-1-2 Gonzalez 6-1

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.

8

6 Furlongs. 4&up. Allowance Optional Claiming. NY Bred. Purse: $54,000.

1 Won Great Classic(L) 113 Coa 2-1-1 Rice 2-1

6 Fight for V L T's(L) 113 Ortiz 7-5-1 Reynolds 30-1

7 Isn'tlovejustgrand(L) 120 Castro 4-1-3 Aquilino 6-1

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.

9

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

1 Indian Starlight(L) 123 Fragoso 5-x-x Quartarolo 15-1

2 Bounty Pink(L) 111 Coa 2-x-x McLaughlin 9-5

3 Magna G(L) 116 Morales 3-7-2 Hertler 12-1

6 Madre Ditutticapi(L) 116 Ortiz, Jr 2-6-3 Hushion 5-1

7 Leighexsa 116 Tomas x-x-x Pantaleo 30-1

8 Gravitate(L) 123 Alvarado 2-3-x Asmussen 8-5

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.
