Acigarisjustacigar tallied solid late pace figure when second in last; more to come. Santa Elf turns back to sprint and should pack amplified kick; dangerous. Tempered Threat looms a front-running threat on 'A' game.

7Dan and Sheila(L)118Velasquez6-6-1Jacobson7-2

Tyrus adds blinkers and owns speed and fast back figures; call based on price potential. Reserved Quality regressed in last start after hand-ridden victory in prior; rebound threat. Hillswick owns fast numbers but has been sidelined for 301 days; handle with care at short ticket.

5Dattts Da Boss(L)113McCarthy4-2-2Toscano, Jr12-1

Friedman entry: Carameaway was sharpened in sprint last and could play out as main speed and mate Dreaming of Cara runs late; complementary coupling. Rodriguez entry: How tallied solid final fraction when winning last and mate Allie Sweet is fleet footed; potent pairing. Gloria Victoria has won three of last four; right in the thick of this.

8Clearly Perfection(L)120Montanez5-9-xRyerson5-2

Clearly Perfection made menacing middle move and flattened last time; tighter today. Astronomo compiled tight work tab for first start since claimed by high-percentage stable; very playable. Tell It to the Man is improving with every start; dangerous.

7Kingsford Drive(L)118Velasquez3-4-2Brown10-1

Kingsford Drive logged three tight works since wide trip in last; rates close call in contentious dash. Jacobson entry: Writingonthewall owns speed and fast figs and mate Private Tale makes first start since claimed; just one goes with Lopez listed on both. Abra was a front-end winner in last; must consider.

10Julie Napp(L)115Rice7-4-5Schettino15-1

Island Candy outworked 154 rivals on March 2 and should offer best price potential in bulky maiden field. Sun and Moon has finished second in last three starts; continues trend? Latin Tudor was second to a repeat winner in last; very dangerous. Worldly Charm hails from McLaughlin barn but has burned shiploads of cash in all three starts; your move.

8Quiet Sunshine(L)113Rice5-3-6Jacobson3-1

Tatoo Me was compromised by wide trip in last but packs potent late kick on best and could receive pace setup. Midnightinpositano owns speed and will be aided by cutback to sprint; price will be tempting. Evasive Cat wheels back in a hurry after clear-cut score this past Monday; very dangerous. Quiet Sunshine drops and owns fast figs on best efforts.

8Johannesburg Smile(L)118Velasquez4-5-3Jacobson5-1

Idle American tallied improved internal numbers in last and could finally end long drought. Street Lord notched swift final fraction when a determined winner in last and fired half-mile bullet on Tuesday; very playable. Spa City Fever has been idle for 85 days but is more than good enough on 'A' effort.

8Patriot's Jewel(L)114Valentin9-6-10Granville50-1

Madison V. returns to maiden claiming ranks after even fifth on Monday; forward move predicted. Quick Explosion was a sharp second in debut at Prx; very interesting. Rock N Cozy is 0-for-21 but makes peak start of form cycle and first outing with claiming tag; big-time player. Peach Lake could impact at fat ticket if pace meltdown ensues.
