5 St Liams Halo(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 8-3-7 Contessa 6-1

Caixa Eletronica owns a sizeable edge on final numbers; prohibitive price is the problem. Broad Rule will be aided by cutback to 6 furlongs. Ponzi Scheme makes first start for Tony Dutrow and is competitive on best efforts.

1 Cluster of Stars(L) 123 Castellano 1-1-1 Asmussen 2-5

4 Well Kept(L) 113 Ortiz 4-2-4 Gyarmati 6-1

5 McCarren Park(L) 120 Alvarado 1-4-3 Asmussen 10-1

Smoldering Beauty projects as the speed of the speed with aggressive ride; 5-furlong bullet last week seals the deal. Cluster of Stars owns swift figs and has yet to taste defeat in three starts; could easily stay perfect. Well Kept makes third start since three-month absence; worth a look.

6 Furlongs. 4&up. Claiming $35,000-$25,000. Purse: $40,000.

7 Sensational Slam(L) 118 Hill 2-4-7 Quick 6-1

So Scott consistently logs the field's fastest late pace figures. Shotgun City is fleet-footed and could prove very tough on a soft lead. Sensational Slam is a hot commodity at the claim box and owns rapid numbers on best efforts; right in the thick of this.

10 Gentle Jim(L) 116 Alvarado 11-6-x Lakeman 8-1

11 Spectacular Act(L) 116 Franco 3-5-3 Aquilino 5-1

Ride'em Cowboy is speedy, adds blinkers and looms the controlling front-runner on the fence with aggressive rider at the helm. Belief System makes first start since moving to the Rudy Rodriguez barn; very dangerous. El Dreamer logged field's top number when a game second in last; could easily take this.

8 Milkyyourway(L) 118 Maragh 4-2-4 Schettino 5-1

9 G. A. Empress(L) 113 Ortiz 4-6-8 Arriaga 20-1

Victoryat Last took backward step in last after pairing up solid efforts in prior two outings; rebounds. Ibid owns sprinter's speed and razor-sharp current condition and could prove very tough on an unchallenged lead. Motion Lounge was pace and trip compromise when a clear-cut third in last; serious player.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. The KING ROLLER. 4&up. Starters Handicap. Purse: $50,000.

1 Itsagoodtendollars(L) 120 Cohen 3-4-6 DiPrima 5-1

7 Metaurus(L) 118 Camacho, Jr 2-3-6 Sciacca 12-1

8 Chairman Now(L) 120 Velasquez 1-3-1 Englehart 7-2

Sacred Ground regressed in last after hand-ridden victory in prior; crisp 5-furlong drill on March 1 portends bounce back. Cayambe wheels back in a hurry after visually and numercially impressive score last week; more to come. Point Taken is riding a two-race winning streak and now makes first start since reclaimed by David Jacobson; very playable. Chairman Now tallied determined score in last and owns fast back figures; big-time threat.

9 Rachini(L) 116 Battula 8-5-8 Barrera, III 50-1

10 Miss Maybry(L) 123 Camacho, Jr 9-10-11 Matties 30-1

Cherylwithans never got going after striking side of gate in debut; added ground and class drop are keys. Madison Ave. Jo Jo is speedy and drops; very dangerous. Galaxy Gal was pace and trip compromised when third in last; worth long look. Fantastic Eyes was second to a tons-the-best winner in last; must consider.
