Secret Signal makes peak start of form cycle after clear-cut second in last at Atlantic City. Leland's Dream moves to turf and could play out as the controlling speed. Shewreckstheplace owns solid numbers on Belmont sod; don't ignore.

5Natalie Victoria(L)122Castellano5-7-1Levine5-2


Garnet Street tallied solid final fraction when a convincing winner in last at Big A and mare owns two wins on Belmont loam. Natalie Victoria owns speed and fast final figs; could easily take this. Lady Kierkegaard is training with a purpose for potent layoff barn (Clement); worth a look.

12Spin Chief(L1)124Ortizx-x-xDomino15-1

Sunrise Lover is riding a forward line on the numbers and could get ideal setup in wide-open maiden field. Beat of the Drum bested a next-out winner when a clear-cut second in last; very dangerous. Winning Gold gets Lasix after wide trip in last; odds will be tempting. Point and Go logged best number on Belmont loam last spring; juicy-priced player.

Kitty Panda was a hard-charging winner in debut at Saratoga last summer and is training sharply for return. Sacred Sucess is speedy and drops; very dangerous. La Verdad was a front-running winner in last; right in the thick of this.

Shortcoming makes first grass start with maiden claiming tag and tallied swift late pace figure two starts back. U Whippersnapper also drops and should move forward in second start of form cycle. Code Z compiled a tight work tab for first start since September; dangerous. Bairn is rested and the one that must be caught.
