Precarious has fired two 5-furlong bullets since logging fast final fraction in debut. Midnight Watch gets the meds for potent second-out stable. Giants Jewel owns strong turf numbers; must consider.

Belief System tallied solid late pace and final figs when breaking maiden in last start; more to come. Chapman fired half-mile bullet since last out and consistently logs fast numbers. In Harm's Way could play out as the controlling speed on the rail; very dangerous.

Lovely Syn has visually and numercially impressed in both starts. Kilnockagain has been just as impressive as top selection when winning first two; big-time danger. Keep Bustin has yet to run a poor effort in five starts; right in the thick of this.

11Perfect Sunday(L)116No rider9-8-2Contessa5-1

Nelson Avenue is training with a purpose for start since December and earned solid late pace number in most recent turf outing. Primary Focus returns to grass after logging fast final fraction when winning last; very playable. Yo Blue was a front-running winner in last and could play out as main speed once again in turf debut.

1aHow(L)118Ortiz, Jr5-x-xRodriguez8-1

Kaitlyns Cat drops and moves to turf after wide trip in first start since eight-month absence; brerakthrough predicted. Kiss An Angel also gets class relief and logged good numbers in both grass starts. Madre Ditutticapi is fleet-footed and could prove very tough on a soft lead.

6Keep Me Informed(L)122Saez3-6-4Toscano, Jr12-1

Mordi's Miracle was done in by hot fractions last time; softer spot and more appropriate distance today. Rein King was a clear-cut winner in last; speedy and dangerous. Keep Me Informed would be aided by pace meltdown.

11Miss Mastery(L)124Luzzi8-3-6Grusmark20-1

Vaid made mild rally when pace compromised in debut; call based on price potential. Spinit to Winit needed last and could easily take this with forward move. Loomin' Lori Lou bested 'Spinit' by more than a length when second in debut; right in the thick of this.

Political Justice tallied improved pace figure in last and could play out as the speed of the speed with switch to sod. Power Blast closes and should be aided by today's added ground. Lure of the South was a hard-charging second at this level in last; could easily take this.

8Erin Enchanted(L)118Ortiz, Jr2-1-3Schosberg4-1

Dayatthespa is rested, training strongly and owns an edge on the numbers. Kibosh tallied solid final fraction when winning last; dangerous. Elusive Rumor gets the meds in return from eight-month absence; must consider.

12Golden Jewel(L)118Ortiz9-9-5Martin20-1

13Winmor Gold(L)118Rosario3-6-3Asmussen12-1

Maxana returns to maiden claiming ranks and ability to pass horses should provide edge in weak nightcap. Sharpandwitty has finished second in last three starts; continues trend? Riptherubberoff owns speed but lacks hear; must take the good with the bad. Belle Epoque was third in blanket photo in debut; be no surprise.
