5 Expression(L) 121 Alvarado 4-2-3 Baker 5-1

6 Classic Point(L) 121 Solis 5-5-2 Jerkens 9-5

Classic Point gets class relief and fired half-mile bullet since last start. Geisha Gal also is firing bullet works, turns back to sprint and would be aided by pace meltdown; very playable. Ullapool owns speed and fast figs but has been sidelined for 389 days; must take the good with the bad.

9 Andromeda's Coming 115 Franco 8-8-8 Domino 5-1

Left Uppercut is speedy and starts from the hedge on tight-turned course; weakness of field is selection's strength. East Coast Express earned improved internal numbers in last; developing and dangerous. You So Smart tallied swift final fraction in lone start on Belmont turf on July 7; right in the thick of this.

2b Papa Tom(L) 116 Franco 6-6-8 Ubillo 20-1

10 Bake Shop(L) 121 Velazquez 9-2-3 Vazquez 6-1

Sound of Drums ships in for streaking Chris Englehart barn after convincing score in last at FL; call based on price potential.

Main Track Only

10 Natalie Victoria(L) 121 No Rider 4-1-5 Levine 1-1

Deanaallen'skitten is fresh and consistently logs the field's fastest late pace figures. Indian Starlight owns speed and can prove a front-running threat on an unchallenged lead. Another Please runs late and would be aided by pace meltdown.

Main Track Only

14 Cease(L) 118 Cohen 1-4-3 Jacobson 3-1

Sky Blazer logged five tight works since subpar effort in last; win at today's 10-furlong trip seals the deal. Imagining, a two-time winner at the distance, can prove a big-time front-end threat on best. Harrods Creek was pace and position compromised in last and is right in the thick of this on 'A' game.

7 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Maiden Claiming $16,000. Purse: $26,000.

1 Seriously Sharp(L) 118 Franco 4-6-5 Kettell 10-1

Main Track Only

11 Market Blaster(L) 120 Saez 2-8-4 Badgett, Jr 5-2

12 The Culchie(L) 120 Rodriguez 3-5-10 Antonucci 6-1

Seriously Sharp displayed improved early foot on dirt last time after being pace and trip compromised on turf in prior; price play. Metro should pack intensified late kick with cutback to 7 furlongs; could easily take this. Easy Street tallied solid numbers on Belmont turf last year and now makes first start with maiden claiming tag; very interesting. My Italian Ices owns sprinter's speed and could capitalize on soft lead in turf debut; worth long look.
