1J W Blue(L)115Esquivel2-6-5Jacobson6-1
Ea drops to lifetime low for DAS/Jacobson; can't bet on or against. J W Blue, also from Jacobson barn, is 1-for-1 on Big A's main track; dangerous. Political Justice could play out as the main speed with aggressive ride.

7Start It Up(L)113Esquivel6-3-5Jacobson2-1

All in Favor drops, needed last and will be aided by today's added ground. Bitty Kitty regressed in last after fast-figured sixth in prior; rebound potential. Miss Livona owns sprinter's speed and could prove very tough on an unchallenged lead.

She's a Sizzler gets positive class drop and compiled three tight works for first start in 55 days; primed for best. Lucky Nancy E. chased hot fractions on turf last time and could play out as the controlling speed in dirt debut. Margaret Ownzit also owns speed and makes first start since claimed by Gary Contessa; right in the thick of this.

16Matt and Jesse(L)120Lezcano5-5-7Ortiz8-1
Foolish Tiger was pace compromised last out and packs potent late kick on best; call based on price potential in wide-open heat. Becky's Kitten tallied solid late pace number when a determined winner last time and now makes first start since claimed by Linda Rice. Liquidity Trap is another that gets confident price hike after winning last; very dangerous. Mississippi Duel is fleet-footed and will prove very tough on a soft lead.

6She's Stones Sis(L)118Rosario3-1-2Levine2-1
Motion Lounge notched swift final fraction when winning on Sept. 22; amplified wallop with slight turnback. She's Stones Sis is speedy and the one that must be caught; big-time danger. Bit Bustin upped record to 2-for-3 at the Big A when a determined winner in last; right in the thick of this.

Arctic Missile was speed sharpened in sprint last time and projects as the controlling front-runner at longer trip. Shortcoming was a strong second in last at Med and must be factored into the mix if able to escape AE list. Sunnyinseabrook will be aided by return to turf; price will be tempting. Easy Street is riding a forward line on the numbers and now makes peak start of form cycle; worth long look.
