1a Toque(L) 121 No Rider 2-1-7 Jacobson 7-2

Tightend Touchdown is fresh and projects as the main speed. Cayambe has won four of last five and hails from sizzling David Jacobson stable. Quick Money is a last-race winner that's likely to offer generous odds; worth a look.

9 Tiz Teresa(L) 111 Franco 6-x-x Coronel 30-1

Daddy Loves Gold was a solid second in turf debut at GP; rates close call. Barbie Wire owns fast dirt figs and is bred to handle switch to sod. Sweet Potato was second to a repeat winner in debut at SA; could easily take this in first start for Pletcher.

6 Quiet Miracle(L) 118 Camacho, Jr 6-9-1 Granville 12-1

1a Patriotic Duty(L) 111 Rodriguez 4-5-3 Persaud 6-1

In Todd We Trust wheels back in a hurry after late-running third last week. Epic Legend failed to handle turf last out but was a clear-cut winner on dirt two starts back; very playable. Tweet Me never got involved when eighth in same last race as top selection; front-running threat in best.

5 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 2yo. NY Bred. Purse: $55,000.

3 Southern Proper(L1) 118 Castellano x-x-x Servis 5-2

2b John Bailey(L1) 118 Lezcano x-x-x Lawrence, II 4-1

6 Handshake Man 118 Chamafi x-x-x Friedman 12-1

Blue Collar Cat compiled tight work tab at Fair Hill base and mate John Bailey fired 5-furlong bullet on April 26; just one goes with Jose Lezcano listed on both in year's first 2-year-old race. Ainteasybeinggreen debuts for Wes Ward and attracted Rosario; could be the goods. Royal Posse concluded work tab on Belmont main track; charting a must.

8 Political Justice(L) 122 Lezcano 6-4-4 Araya 6-1

9 Smokin Candy(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 8-4-6 Galluscio 8-1

Political Justice returns to dirt and looms the speed of the speed with aggressive ride. Our Entourage is 1-for-1 at Belmont and will be in the catbird seat if pace meltdown ensues. Gunfighter makes peak start of form cycle and owns fast numbers on 'A' game.

6 Furlongs. Starter Optional Claiming $25,000. 3&up. Purse: $50,000.

1 Poised to a Tee(L) 122 Cohen 2-1-1 Jacobson 6-1

2 Island Sunset(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 1-2-5 Galluscio 3-1

6 Buddy Jones(L) 122 Velasquez 5-5-1 Rice 15-1

7 Litigate(L) 122 Ortiz 1-7-6 Duggan 5-2

Litigate tallied solid final fraction when a convincing winner in last; pairs up. Island Sunset was a game winner in last after solid second behind top selection in prior; very dangerous. Induce (first start since claimed by Steve Asmussen) and Majestic Number (half-mile bullet on May 5) are two more last-race winners that must be factored into the mix.

1 Mile. (Widener Turf). Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $64,000.

2 Quiet Sunshine(L) 122 Rosario 3-1-6 Canani 12-1

Main Track Only

12 Sugar Beach(L) 122 Cohen 1-6-4 Englehart 6-1

13 Hundred Acre Wood(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 1-3-2 Sciacca 5-1

14 Silver Prize(L) 122 Ortiz 7-2-5 Antonucci 8-1

1a Easy Ending(L) 122 No Rider 4-5-9 Rodriguez 4-1

Downtown Hottie overcame soft pace to win last and should have more to give in second start since December. Inimitable Romanee logged tight work tab for first start since November and owns field's fastest turf figures on 'A' game; could easily take this. Frosty Bay bested a next-out winner when a determined victor in last; price will be tempting.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). The AROUND THE CAPE. 4&up. Purse: $85,000.

1 Spring to the Sky(L) 118 Castellano 9-1-9 Brown 5-1

Main Track Only

9 Buffum(L) 120 Castellano 4-1-6 Albertrani 9-5

10 Sage Valley(L) 118 Rosario 1-1-1 Rodriguez 5-2

Hoofit is rested, training sharply and packs potent late kick on best efforts. Yield Bogey is speedy and should be aided by shorter trip. Spring to the Sky was a winner this surface and distance last summer; right in the thick of this.

7 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). Claiming $35,000. 3&up. Purse: $50,000.

1 Tycoon Cat(L) 122 Camacho, Jr 4-1-2 Granville 15-1

7 St Liams Halo(L) 122 Saez 6-4-8 Contessa 10-1

8 Decisive Move(L) 122 Ortiz 3-8-4 Galluscio 4-1

9 Buckeye Heart(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 3-5-4 Signore, Jr 20-1

10 Kingsford Drive(L) 122 Maragh 1-1-6 Gargan 7-2

Main Track Only

11 Laysh Laysh Laysh(L) 122 Velasquez 3-7-3 Jacobson 4-1

Hollywood Script logged two 5-furlong works since hard-charging victory last month; rates call based on price potential in ultra-contentious nightcap. Kingsford Drive won last two on Keeneland's Polytrack and handles grass; very playable. Decisive Move is fleet-footed and could prove a very tough customer on an unchallenged lead. Capetown Devil has trained strongly since besting pricer field on dirt at GP last time; very dangerous. Black Rhino could impact if fractions get fast and furious. Fizzano logged two of three lifetime wins on Belmont sod; don't ignore.
