7 Dan and Sheila(L) 118 Velasquez 6-6-1 Jacobson 7-2

5 Dattts Da Boss(L) 113 McCarthy 4-2-2 Toscano, Jr 12-1

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.

8 Clearly Perfection(L) 120 Montanez 5-9-x Ryerson 5-2

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.

7 Kingsford Drive(L) 118 Velasquez 3-4-2 Brown 10-1

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.

9 Worldly Charm(L) 120 Maragh 3-3-3 McLaughlin 7-2

10 Julie Napp(L) 115 Rice 7-4-5 Schettino 15-1

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.

6 Furlongs. Claiming $12,500. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $23,000.

1 Midnightinpositano(L) 113 Esquivel 8-6-8 Barrera, III 20-1

7 Evasive Cat(L) 120 Beato 1-4-6 Rodriguez 5-2

8 Quiet Sunshine(L) 113 Rice 5-3-6 Jacobson 3-1

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.

7 Idle American(L) 118 Lopez 3-7-4 Kelly 12-1

8 Johannesburg Smile(L) 118 Velasquez 4-5-3 Jacobson 5-1

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.

51/2 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $25,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $30,000.

1 Rock N Cozy(L) 124 Franco 4-3-3 Domino 7-5

7 Madison V.(L) 119 Esquivel 5-3-7 Belsoeur 6-1

8 Patriot's Jewel(L) 114 Valentin 9-6-10 Granville 50-1

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.
