Promised Destiny logged fast final fraction when sixth in budding key race last time; more to give. Lure of the South gets class relief and owns swift numbers; very playable. Life's a Roar is fresh and hails from Alan Goldberg barn; dangerous.

Main Track Only

13 File Gumbo(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 2-6-1 Clement 6-5

Chat Me Up was a hand-ridden winner last time and owns faster back numbers. Little Red Rider drops one price level and holds sharp current condition. Court of Dreams was victimized by wide trip in last; right in the thick of this.

6 Pegasus Papou(L) 116 Coa 6-4-7 Persaud 10-1

7 Nine Links(L) 120 Velasquez 9-4-x Galluscio 7-2

My Cousin Eddie wheels back in a hurry after speed and fade last week; tighter in second start since 15-month layoff. Missile Nick should pack amplified kick with turnback to 6 furlongs. Pegasus Papou is 0-for-40 but owns competitive numbers on best; must take the good with the bad.

7 Tennis Racket(L) 116 Ortiz 10-6-4 Scott 15-1

8 Rockheaded(L) 120 Castro 8-1-7 Rodriguez 6-1

Terminus exits top-figured third in last; more to give in third start of form cycle. Singing My Way is training consistently for first start since March; Galluscio barn is capable with layoff runners. Freudian Therapist is speedy and makes quick return; very interesting.

7 Rydilluc(L1) 120 Morales x-x-x Contessa 20-1

1a Long River 120 Ortiz, Jr 7-x-x McLaughlin 8-1

Pletcher entry: Revolutionary was a tough-trip third in well-bet debut and mate Delhomme was clear-cut second when favored in first start at Spa; just one goes with Velasquez listed on both. Charismatic Pulpit logged four 5-furlong workouts for first start in seven weeks; dangerous. Long River fired two bullets drills since debut and hails from potent second-out stable.

7 Readthebyline(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 5-1-3 Schosberg 15-1

8 Greeley's Law(L) 121 Prado 4-1-8 DiSanto 12-1

Cybertron regressed in last after breakthrough-figured score two back; rebounds today. N. F.'s Destiny has delivered strong efforts in both starts; big-time threat. Readthebyline is rested and owns fast numbers on 'A' game; don't ignore.

11/16 Miles (Inner Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. THE ATHENIA (Grade III). Purse: $150,000.

1 La Cloche(L) 120 Alvarado 6-5-1 Toner 10-1

9 Law of The Range 118 Ortiz, Jr 8-6-6 Albertrani 20-1

Main Track Only

10 Arena Elvira(L) 123 No Rider 3-1-1 Mott 4-5

La Cloche packs potent late kick and should offer best price to chance ratio in wide-open Athenia. Dealbata is another that closes strongly but will offer far shorter ticket than top selection. Ruthenia loves the Belmont sod and is more than good enough on best.

Main Track Only

11 Visions of Annette(L1) 120 No Rider x-x-x Schettino 2-1

12 Korat 120 No Rider 11-5-x Albertrani 12-1

Wine Burglar was pace and position compromised in debut and shoul pack intensified kick at today's 7-furlong trip. Tie Dye logged three tight works since much-improved placing in last; very dangerous. Girl Code will prove very tough of able to transfer dirt form to turf.

11/8 Miles (Inner Turf). 3&up. THE KNICKERBOCKER (Grade III). Purse: $150,000.

7 Barocci(L) 117 Ortiz, Jr 2-3-1 Clement 12-1

8 See Tobe(L) 121 Pimentel 1-2-1 Capuano 12-1

Sky Blazer compiled eye-catching work slate since making sustained rally into hot final fraction in Bernard Baruch; return to Belmont is key. Boisterous owns four wins from seven starts on Belmont sod; very dangerous. Stormy Lord owns tactical speed and razor-sharp form; right in the thick of this.

15 Sky Music(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 5-3-3 Contessa 4-1

1a Special Action(L) 116 Garcia 8-5-1 Miceli 8-1

New Yawker logged all three wins on Belmont grass and should move forward in second start since two-month absence. Evacuation Route gets class relief and should be sittiing on best in third start of form cycle. Preachintothedevil was a determined winner on dirt last time and is capable to turf. Louie Mondello is 1-for-1 on Belmont turf; don't ignore. Red Jack should be aided by return to turf.
