Thisizsparta tallied solid final fractions in all three turf starts and logged three tight works for first outing in 51 days.

Political Farce is speedy, returns to maiden claiming ranks and fired half-mile bullet on May 3. Tapulous tallied fast late pace and final figs when a game second in last; could easily take this. Puget Sound makes first start since claimed by the scorching David Jacobson stable; very interesting.

Martini logs swift late pace numbers in routes and should pack intensified wallop with turnback to sprint. Telegraph Hill earned good figure when fifth in lone turf start and compiled tight work tab for first outing since February. Freight owns a late-running style that could be well served with switch to sod.

10 Mugsy's Pass (L) 118 Lezcano 7-6-x Persaud 30-1

6 Notmyfirstime (L) 122 J.Alvarado 1-1-1 Asmussen 2-1Irish Lion hails from dynamics DAS/Jacobson duo and should possess amplified kick at 6 furlongs.
