Lubango consistently logs fast final figs and owns two wins at Belmont Park. Jacobson entry: Point Taken wheels back in a hurry after determined score on May 1 and mate J W Blue was a swift-numbered winner in most recent dirt start; potent pairing. I Love It is a last-race winner that will offer generous price; worth long look.

16 Willy Pay(L) 122 Castellano 3-2-3 Martin 6-1

Shmooz Talker is riding a two-race winning streak on dirt and should transfer razor-sharp form to sod. Kingsford Drive also has won two straight and packs potent late kick on best; very dangerous. Saints Alive is speedy, fresh and could prove tough on a soft lead.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $20,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $28,000.

1 Group Therapy(L) 118 Ortiz 2-6-6 Kimmel 6-5

9 Kimmie's Girl(L1) 118 Chamafi x-x-x Jones 15-1

10 Born Sunday(L) 111 Tomas 9-7-x Grusmark 12-1

Bonita Sonata is 0-for-14 but makes quick comeback, owns competitive numbers and lands in weak field. Group Therapy is fleet-footed and drops; could easily take this. Blonde Blitzen also owns speed and and will offer fat ticket; don't ignore.

15 Readysetketch(L) 109 Tomas 4-6-1 Jerkens 8-1

16 Patriotic Duty(L) 116 Lezcano 4-5-3 Persaud 10-1

Undrgroundregulatr compiled six tight works since even second on March 16; speed of the speed with aggressive handling. El Corriente should pack amplified kick at 6 furlongs and fired 3-furlong bullet on Tuesday; big-time player. Bold Forest logged fast figures in all four starts; logical contender.

16 Wise Guide(L) 116 No Rider 3-7-1 Kimmel 6-1

Why Not Whiskey tallied only win on Belmont turf and compiled eye-catching work slate for first start since November. Slot Play moves to grass after notching improved pace figure in last; very interesting. Run Run Forrest was a hard-charging winner on dirt last out; worth long look at long price.

7 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 3&up. Purse: $70,000.

2 Town Extension(L) 118 Velasquez 3-5-5 Tagg 7-2

3 Bad Hombre(L) 118 Ortiz 2-4-4 Kimmel 3-1

4 High Five Again(L) 118 Lezcano 5-x-x Zito 6-1

1 Encode 118 Castro x-x-x McLaughlin 4-1

7 One Man One Vote(L) 118 Maragh 6-x-x Romans 20-1

8 Charlie's Picnic(L1) 118 Solis x-x-x Hennig 15-1

Howie's Tiz notched solid late pace number in debut and compiled stamina-buildng work tab for return. High Five Again displayed early speed in debut versus strong field at Spa this past summer and Zito reaches for go-to rider Jose Lezcano; very playable. Accelerare makes first start for Pletcher; need more?

6 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $50,000. 3yo. NY Bred. Purse: $45,000.

1 Joe Alan(L) 120 Rosario 3-4-x DiPrima 7-2

2 Gold Buffalo(L1) 120 Luzzi x-x-x Hushion 8-1

3 Pegasus T(L) 120 Cohen 6-3-x Englehart 12-1

9 Stone Rocks(L) 120 Velasquez 3-4-7 Jerkens 5-1

10 Thingamajigger(L) 115 Rodriguez 6-7-6 Jerkens 12-1

Joe Mooch packs a solid late kick that should play well in field where pace meltdown could ensue. Stone Rocks, another that runs late, should be nearing peak in third start of form cycle. Horatio is fleet-footed but has lost ground in the stretch in every start; handle with care at short ticket.

1 Mile. Allowance. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $62,000.

1 Greeley's Law(L) 122 Luzzi 7-1-4 DiSanto 15-1

2 Quiet Power(L) 122 Ortiz 1-7-10 Rodriguez 6-5

3 Ego Friendly(L) 116 Chamafi 7-2-1 Kimmel 8-1

4 Irish Moon(L) 122 Maragh 6-6-1 Trombetta 6-1

5 Golden Greeley(L) 116 Solis 5-1-x Violette, Jr 15-1

8 Sky Colors(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 11-5-1 Ortiz 20-1

9 Amberjack(L) 116 Rosario 10-1-3 Hushion 7-2

Quiet Power was a clear-cut winner in last and shows a history of pairing up victories. Amberjack has trained sharply since being eased at GP on New Year's Day; more than good enough on 'A' game. Armed U S A was a pace-pressing winner in sprint last and could play out as the main speed with stretch to a mile.

1 1/8 Mile. The PETER PAN (Grade II). 3yo. Purse: $200,000.

1 Freedom Child(L) 116 Saez 10-1-3 Albertrani 12-1

6 Narvaez(L) 116 Velasquez 7-4-1 Bezara 15-1

7 Saint Vigeur(L) 116 Castellano 1-1-2 Brown 6-1

8 Declan's Warrior(L) 118 Lezcano 1-1-2 Zito 4-1

9 Go Get the Basil(L) 116 Ortiz, Jr 8-2-1 Violette, Jr 20-1

10 Incognito 116 Luzzi 1-1-2 McLaughlin 5-1

11 Infinite Magic(L1) 118 Prado 1-1-2 Ribaudo 12-1

Saint Vigeur tallied sizzling final fraction when a determined winner at the distance last time; ready for prime time. Battier makes first start for Todd Pletcher and owns four wins and two seconds in six outings; dangerous. Declan's Warrior, another that's delivered strong efforts in every start, will prove very tough if able to handle the 9-furlong trip.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). Maiden Claiming $25,000. 3&up. Purse: $32,000.

1 Fairy Snow(L) 118 Maragh 8-4-3 Persaud 15-1

11 Slimshady(L) 118 Espinoza 8-7-6 O'Brien 20-1

12 Acro's Game(L) 111 Franco 9-x-x Persaud 30-1

Also Eligible

13 Lt. Kojak(L) 124 Falk 5-12-11 Falk 20-1

Main Track Only

14 Economic Forecast(L) 124 No Rider 3-4-4 Jacobson 2-1

15 Derby Watch(L) 118 Ortiz 6-2-11 Nevin 7-2

16 Dapper Draper(L) 124 Velasquez 2-5-x Rice 5-1

Last Run is from a dam that's produced two grass winners and could improve dramatically with surface switch. Scandalo drops and returns to turf for white-hot Mike Maker barn; logical, short-priced player. Freight takes sizeable price plunge and moves to sod in first start since claimed by Dominic Galluscio; must consider. Moonshine Ridge is speedy and fired swift 5-furlong drill on May 3; don't ignore.
