1a Thousandfold(L) 118 Velazquez 6-x-x Pletcher 5-2

Jonata is training with a purpose for first start since October for Mike Hushion; primed and ready. Distortion bested a next-out winner when a fast-figured second at Kee last time; could easily take this. Ambitious debuts for McGaughey with sneaky-good work tab; follow the money.

10 Tangible Assets(L) 118 Cohen 7-x-x Martin 10-1

Tangible Assets takes two level class drop after speed and fade in debut; forward move on tap. Economic Forecast owns fast figs and makes first start since claimed by dynamic DAS/Jacobson duo; very dangerous. Bernando should be aided by today's added ground.

2b Marilyn's Guy(L) 122 No rider 5-4-1 Rodriguez 7-5

Margano owns a running style that should be well served by 10-furlong trip. Star Channel is speedy and could capitalize on unchallenged lead. Kingofthebluegrass owns competitive numbers on best efforts.

9 Sky Blue Pink(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 6-7-5 Baker 15-1

Main Track Only

10 Pearl of Wisdom(L) 122 No rider 3-6-4 Rodriguez 3-1

Dual Citizen was pace and position compromised in last on Big A grass and logged three of four wins on Belmont turf. East of Danzig held more than two lengths to the good on top selection when a game second last out; obvious threat. The Thinker is speedy, rested and working sharply; right in the thick of this.

11/4 Miles. (Inner Turf). 4&up. THE GOOD REWARD. Purse: $90,000.

1 Change of Command(L) 118 Pimentel 1-4-1 Trombetta 15-1

7 Teaks North(L) 120 Velazquez 6-2-1 Nevin 5-2

Main Track Only

8 Keep Me Informed(L) 118 Saez 1-3-6 Toscano, Jr 8-5

Sky Blazer, the only winner in the field at the 10-furlong trip, drops and makes peak start of form cycle; breakthrough predicted. Teaks North also handles marathon distances and could prove very tough as the controlling speed. Hyper was a tough-trip third in last; more than good enough on best. Quick Casablanca gets the meds for stateside debut; very interesting.

15 River Monster(L) 118 Ortiz 10-7-x Violette, Jr 20-1

1a Captain Gaughen(L) 118 Lezcano 5-6-3 Ryerson 30-1

Professor Chaos tallied lifetime best number on Belmont turf last summer and should pack amplified kick at 7 furlongs. Captain Gaughen improved on the grass last fall and compiled tight work slate for first start in 158 days. My Teddy Bear displayed improved speed in last and should benefit from cutback in distance. Withoutregard loogged fast final fraction in lone grass start and fired 5-furlong bullet on May 1. Campogiovanni is bred to move forward with switch to sod.
