2 Washington's Rules(L) 118 DeCarlo 1-3-1 Jacobson 2-1

1a North Ocean(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 1-2-2 Rodriguez 8-5

A. P. Cino is riding a forward line on the numbers and should offer generous price in contentious opener. North Ocean was a "geared down" winner in budding key race last time; very dangerous. Jacobson entry: Writingonthewall has won four in a row and owns speed and fast figures and mate Washington's Rules makes first start since claimed.

10 Winnitude(L) 118 Camacho, Jr 12-8-11 Sciacca 20-1

Bryce Bryce Baby gets added ground after speed and fade in debut; contrarian play. Here He Fitz owns solid late kick on best and could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues. Effinex rallied in first start and longer trip could play to strength.

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

1 Sam Sparkle(L) 118 Castellno,Jr 3-4-1 Cannizzo 20-1

3 Mean Season(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 1-1-x Mott 3-5

4 Don Tito(L) 118 Arroyo 1-3-1 Rodriguez 5-1

5 Hackleton(L) 113 Worrie 1-1-5 Persaud 10-1

6 Hannibal Lecter(L) 118 Maragh 7-4-3 Toscano, Jr 15-1

7 Readthebyline(L) 113 Rice 7-6-8 Jacobson 10-1

Ground Force was a fast-figured winner in last and could have more to give in second start since December. Hannibal Lecter was done in by bad start last time and owns fast figures on best efforts. Mean Season has won both starts by a combined 12 3/4 lenghts but has been sidelined for 69 days; must take the good with the bad. Don Tito won only inner-track start; must consider.

6 Furlongs. The TOM FOOL (Grade III). 3&up. Purse: $200,000.

1 Strapping Groom(L) 123 Ortiz, Jr 1-2-4 Jacobson 1-1

6 Sensational Slam(L) 114 Castellno,Jr 2-4-2 Quick 15-1

7 Jake N Elwood(L) 114 Franco 3-8-6 Duggan 30-1

Candyman E made determined surge to win Toboggan last time; rates close call. Strapping Groom is fresh and owns fast figures; very dangerous. Dads Caps is a front-running threat on best; right in the thick of this.

1 Shinnecock Bay 120 Velasquez x-x-x Albertrani 20-1

10 Frontier Scout(L) 120 Castro 6-x-x Antonucci 30-1

11 Unforced(L1) 120 Castellno,Jr x-x-x Cannizzo 30-1

John's Island tallied deceptively fast late pace figure in debut and should offer juicy ticket in wide-open maiden dash. Ke in Motion is speedy and makes third start of form cycle; very dangerous. Whyalwaysme is firing bullets for debut; follow the money.

6 Furlongs. Claiming $16,000. 4&up. Purse: $24,000.

1 Ducks Dock(L) 108 Valentin 6-6-10 Araya 30-1

7 Ludo Bagman(L) 113 Rice 6-3-8 Jacobson 5-2

8 Dapper Draper(L) 118 Ortiz 4-2-1 Englehart 5-1

9 Greeley Pack(L) 118 Garcia 8-7-7 Feron 30-1

10 Reggie D(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 5-7-3 Levine 3-1

Dapper Draper gets favorable cutback to 6 furlongs and should pack intensified late wallop. Reggie D drops and would be aided by pace meltdown. Ludo Bagman makes first start since claimed by DAS/Jacobson; more than good enough on 'A' game. Tizracer has failed as the favorite in last two starts; short price once again.

13 Precious Metal(L) 118 Maragh 4-1-5 Maragh 20-1

1a Warrior Up(L) 118 Beato 9-7-8 Ubillo 20-1

Towering Moon tallied swift late pace and final figures when second at 50-1 last time; fat ticket once again. Readytodefer owns sprinter's speed and must be factored into the mix if able to escape AE list. Native Singer is 1-for-1 on winterized oval. Pure Attitude has won two of last three; logical, short-priced player.

1 1/16 Mile. The TOP FLIGHT (Grade II). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $200,000.

1 Flash Forward(L) 117 Velasquez 2-6-3 Schettino 10-1

2 Teen Pauline(L) 123 Ortiz, Jr 1-1-3 Pletcher 9-5

3 Centring(L) 117 Maragh 3-2-2 Albertrani 5-1

5 Flores Island(L) 116 Franco 1-1-1 Mott 10-1

6 Royal Lahaina(L) 120 Nakatani 5-3-1 Pletcher 6-1

Summer Applause, 1-for-1 on inner strip, is training strongly for first start since November. Teen Pauline has won both inner-track starts by a combined 14 3/4 lengths; formidable. Centring is competitive on best efforts.

1 1/16 Mile. The GOTHAM (Grade III). 3yo. Purse: $500,000.

2 In Trouble(L) 120 Rocco, Jr 1-1-x Dutrow 5-1

1a Samraat(L) 123 Ortiz 1-1-1 Violette, Jr 5-2

8 Extrasexyhippzster(L) 123 Pimentel 1-1-4 Trombetta 4-1

9 Master Lightning(L) 116 Velasquez 4-7-1 Pletcher 20-1

10 Harpoon(L) 116 Ortiz, Jr 2-1-2 Pletcher 10-1

In Trouble is working with a purpose for 3-year-old debut and could offer generous price; rail draw seals the deal. Samraat upped record to 4-for-4 when a game winner of Withers last time; for chalk lovers only. Uncle Sigh was a solid second to Samraat last time; big-time player.

5 1/2 Furlongs. Claiming $12,500. 4&up. Purse: $25,000.

1 Straight Fax(L) 118 Castellno,Jr 7-7-7 Quick 30-1

2 Bear's Spirit(L) 118 Maragh 9-2-7 Maragh 6-1

3 Real Estate(L) 113 Rice 5-6-5 Jacobson 8-1

4 Buckeye Heart(L) 118 Franco 8-4-5 Terranova,II 7-2

5 Superiority(L) 118 Chen 4-4-3 Persaud 6-1

6 Beer Is Good(L) 108 Valentin 6-7-1 Barrera, III 12-1

7 Starship Captain(L) 118 Montanez 3-5-3 Grusmark 5-1

8 Majestic Number(L) 113 Esquivel 3-5-1 DiPrima 5-2

9 Suilleabhain(L) 111 Worrie 8-6-7 Persaud 30-1

10 Marquet Rebel(L) 108 Davis 4-5-4 Parker 30-1

Beer Is Good projects as the main speed off the bench. Starship Captain owns stalker's style and could be in the catbird seat if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Superiority is another that would be aided by fast fractions. Majestic Number owns fast figs but looms short price; proceed with caution.
