Patty and Nooche logged swift pace and final figures when a strong third in debut. Reach for Yield fired a 5-furlong bullet for debut; follow the money. King Kongrats gets blinkers and Lasix and should improve at fat ticket.

1a Chrisandlorisposse(L) 120 No Rider 8-7-7 Jerkens 10-1

Here Comes Tommy hails from streaking John Morrison stable and owns field's fastest late pace figures. Sunnysider is speedy and logged two stamina-building, 6-furlong works since last outing; very playable. Key Decision was pace and trip compromised in last; worth long look at long price.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Maiden Claiming $16,000. Purse: $26,000.

1 Omos Journey(L) 120 Arroyo 5-5-4 Miranda 4-1

7 Woburn 120 Studart 5-4-4 Dunham 10-1

8 Commanding Officer(L) 118 Franco 4-5-9 Gullo 5-1

Woburn is riding a forward line on the numbers and could be sitting on breakthrough in weak field. Omos Journey goes turf to dirt and long to short and should pack amplified late kick. St. Sincere owns speed but has lost ground in the lane in every start; handle with care at short ticket.

1x Star Grazing 120 Alvarado 4-2-x Jerkens 8-1

Lucky Nancy E. adds blinkers after showing improved speed in last; controlling front-runner with proper ride. Aesthetique closes and should be aided by today's added ground; very dangerous. Freud's Sunset was a strong, pace-setting second in last; right in the thick of this.

8 Ambassador Bridge(L) 121 Saez 7-3-2 Gyarmati 8-1

9 Stone Rocks(L) 118 Lezcano 7-5-1 Jerkens 30-1

M P Joe is rested, owns solid late kick on best and fired 5-furlong bullet for return. Read the Proposal is fleet-footed and will prove very tough on an unchallenged lead. Half Nelson is training with a purpose for first start in more than a year; must be considered.

11/8 Miles. (Inner Turf). 3&up. THE KNICKERBOCKER. (Grade III). Purse: $200,000.

1 Praetereo(L) 118 No Rider 2-6-2 Jacobson 8-5

1a Don Dulce(L) 122 No Rider 5-1-2 Jacobson 8-5

Swift Warrior overcame slow fractions when a clear-cut winner in last at Prx and rates close call based on inside post on tight-turned course. Tetradrachm makes peak start of form cycle and owns fast figures on 'A' game. Boisterous has failed as the favorite in last two but cutback in distance plays to strength; could easily take contentious Knickerbocker. Plainview's speed gives him a puncher's chance.

61/2 Furlongs. 3&up. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $82,000.

1 Ithastobegeorge(L) 118 Castellano 4-3-2 Morley 4-1

9 Whatabouthonor(L) 118 Ortiz 5-3-3 Mareina 10-1

10 Able Baker Charlie(L) 120 Solis 1-3-5 Hertler 30-1

Odea has worked strongly since tallying career best internal numbers last out; primed for breakthrough. Ithastobegeorge fired 3-furlong bullet since last start and should pack intensified late wallop with slight turnback in distance. Quinby Pete has earned fast figs in all four starts; right in the thick of this.

11/16 Miles. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. THE ATHENIA. (Grade III.) Purse: $200,000.

9 Lady Cohiba(L) 120 Alvarado 1-3-4 Clement 2-1

10 Moment in Dixie(L) 118 No Rider 2-9-1 Toner 7-2

Assateague fired two, half-mile bullets since last start and projects as the speed of the speed with aggressive handling. Samitar owns stalker's style and will be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. My Perfect Ten is another that will be aided if fractions get fast and furious.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $30,000.

14 Poppa Loves Mambo(L) 121 No Rider 2-4-2 Maker 7-2

15 G W's Hammer(L) 118 Saez 8-1-2 Hertler 15-1

1a Barrister Jim(L) 118 No Rider 1-2-5 Jacobson 10-1

Force Multiplier turns back to sprint and should possess enhanced late kick in field with sufficient speed. Deterrent was a clear-cut winner at this level in last; could certainly pair up. Upward set hot pace when a willing second behind Deterrent in last; big-time player. Out of Your Mind displayed newfound speed in last and logged only win on Belmont sod; very interesting. Cross Gate makes first start since claimed by Rudy Rodriguez and can prove to be a front-running threat on best.
