13Cause I Can(L)120Ortiz, Jr8-1-4Donk6-1

Balance The Budget wheels back in a hurry after hard-charging second last week. Wishingonadream drops, makes peak start of form cycle and breaks from the fence; very playable. A Rod logged one of his two lifetime wins on the Big A sod; don't ignore.

6Stick to Your Guns(L)115Garcia6-8-xContessa12-1

Galadriel Lady tallied solid final fraction when a clear-cut third in last at Lrl; nice fit in weak field. Iratinelexburance adds blinkers and could play out as the main speed on the rail. Frege could pack amplified kick with return to dirt.


6 Furlongs. 3&up. Purse: $53,000.

5Into the Fray(L)119Ortiz, Jr1-2-4Jacobson9-5

Into the Fray was unfazed by hot fractions when a front-running winner in last; more to give. Orsonian is riding a two-race winning streak and looms the prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues. Brown Indian is another that would be aided by swift pace.

11She Talks too Much(L)122Singh9-4-5Scott50-1

Rock n Cozy returns from 58-day layup after change-of-pace second in last; rates close call. Lumineuse has finished second at short odds in last two starts; continues trend? Wild Grace is training sharply for first start since July; right in the thick of this.

10Eyes of Midas(L)120Luzzi3-x-xGullo5-1


La Bella Chabella could play out as the controlling speed in wide-open 2-year-old dash. Aunt Tipsy makes first start for Mike Hushion after two-move second in last; very playable. Physical Delivery gets class relief, returns to dirt and logged three tight works since last start; big-time danger.

9Nonnie Connie(L)119Velasquez3-1-2Galluscio7-2

L B's Expression was a wire-to-wire winner in last at Lrl and could play out as the quickest of the quick with aggressive ride. Nonnie Connie closes and could be in the garden spot if top selection wilts in the lane. Sharon Spagetti was a front-running winner off the bench for Rudy Rodriguez last time; right in the thick of this.

16Most Happy Fella(L)120Dominguez1-7-3Contessa3-1

Rocky F makes second start four-month layoff and could make forward move at fat ticket. Gimme Credit owns fast figs on best efforts and must be considered if able to escape AE list. Hear the Footsteps is a big-time player on 'A' game. Sneaky Kitten owns speed and sharp form; dangereous.

8Glorietta Bay(L)119Castro10-3-1McLaughlin12-1

E Z Passer is fresh and could get the early jump in wildly contentious group. Sage d'Oro makes first start for Rick Dutrow; very dangerous. Island School goes turf to dirt and fired 3-furlong bullet since last start; right in the thick of this.

16Know This(L)121Lezcano2-3-8Persaud4-1

Sunny Sol Rio was pace and trip compromised when a better-than-it-looks eighth last time. Magic Harbor is rested, drops and picks up Dominguez; need more? Current Design has lost as the favorite in last two starts; you've been warned. Nine Links has been well backed in last two starts and could wakeup with switch to sod.
