9 Commodus(L) 121 Velasquez 5-1-3 Englehart 6-1

6 Patty and Nooche(L) 120 Ortiz 8-4-5 Schettino 8-1

8 Do I Amuse You(L) 118 Lopez 2-5-2 Donato 7-2

Ed's Magic holds razor-sharp current condition and owns sit-and-pounce style that could be well served in contentious field. Quick Money was game second in last and owns fast late pace figures; very dangerous. Do I Amuse You could play out as the speed of the speed with aggressive rider at the wheel.

7 Jimmy Soul(L) 115 Rice 7-10-x Schettino 20-1

Jimmy Soul adds blinkers and projects as the controlling front-runner with proper ride. Rare Eagle packs solid late kick and could be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Los Borrachos logged fast figs in SoCal and now makes first start for Bill Mott; logical, short-priced player.

Dan's Gold makes first start since claimed by DAS/Jacobson and owns rapid numbers on 'A' game. Won Great Classic was a hard-charging winner at this level in last; big-time player. Isn'tlovejustgrand set fast, pressured pace when a very game second to 'Classic' last time; right in the thick of this.

8 Maybry's Fortune(L) 118 Lopez 4-10-3 Sciacca 5-2

9 Explosive Smile(L) 117 Mejias 7-6-5 Persaud 12-1

Sweetest Side improved sixth running positions and nearly seven lengths from quarter pole to the wire last time; more to give in second start since more than yEar layoff. Maybry's Fortune makes fast return and gets rider upgrade after tough-trip fourth this past Sunday; very playable. Chicks and a Pig adds blinkers after speed and fade in last; dangerous. Frosty Lover debuts for potent first-out stable (Kenneally); follow the money.
