Heir to Dare owns speed and fired 3-furlong bullet for return from two-month freshener. Candy and Thunder has been sidelined since June but own field's fastest late pace figures; dangerous. Gamblin Geraldine, another that's been on the bench since the summer, owns competitive numbers on best.

Flat Jack was well bet in key-race debut and now gets the meds for return. Pure Sensation also gets first-time Lasix and owns speed and is training sharply; likely favorite. Flying Joe fired crisp half-mile since front-running second last time; right in the thick of this.

1a Formulaforsuccess(L) 121 Rosario 1-5-3 Rodriguez 5-2

10 Mr. Jenney(L) 119 Solis 1-2-3 Clement 8-1

Indy Sea is riding a forward line on the numbers and fired crisp half-mile drill since last start; call based on price potential. Dubb entry: Mister Pippit drops and owns fast figures and mate Formulaforsuccess logged three tight works since determined score at this level in last. Best Actor makes second start since claimed by Jason Servis (37 percent); seriously consider.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $15,000. Purse: $28,000.

10 Tracy's Belle(L) 120 Ortiz 1-9-x Kimmel 20-1

11 Crafty Push(L) 121 Velasquez 7-7-4 Domino 15-1

Stellerite chased fast fractions and faded in last and should be aided by cutback to shorter trip. Madame Prosecutor failed at 80 cents on the dollar last time and now makes first start since claimed by Chris Englehart; very dangerous. Jewel in the Sky owns speed and fast figures but has been on the bench since July; must take the good with the bad.

8 Cat Man Fu(L) 123 Studart 7-4-3 Horton, Jr 8-1

Awesome Heart compiled tight work tab for first start since July and hails from profitable layoff barn (Iwinski). Privatize was sandwiched between next-out winners when second in last; very dangerous. Saltine Warrior holds sharp current form and fast final figures; could easily take this.

13 Wildcat Thunder(L) 116 Vargas, Jr 6-7-5 Granville 30-1

Decennial turns back to 6 furlongs and should pack intensified late kick in closely-matched field. Jacobson entry: Karakorum Elektra owns 11 wins on Belmont sod and mate Rain Forest overcame soft fractions to win last; potent pairing. Revenue makes first start since claimed by Dominic Galluscio; big-time player.

1x Groomedforvictory(L) 121 No Rider 3-7-4 Rice 2-1

Isn'tlovejustgrand was pace compromised in last and could receive ideal front-end setup in probable pace dynamics. Thunder Harbor is fleet-footed and could play out as the speed of the speed with aggressive ride. Ziptronic was a front-running winner this course, distance and class level last time; right in the thick of this.

8 Springcourt(L) 121 Prado 1-10-9 Gullo 10-1

Springcourt gets confident price hike after clear-cut victory in last; Belmont lover pairs up. Start Jumping logged fast-figured scores in last two starts; very dangerous. Dighton can impact if fractions get fast and furious. Chasing Moonlight tallied strong efforts in two starts this fall; must consider. Seeker regressed in last but is more than good enough on 'A' game.

14 Lotsa Noodles(L) 121 No Rider 1-6-6 Klesaris 5-2

Starship Gambler gets class relief and projects as the controlling speed with aggressive ride. Let the Kitten Run was pace and position compromised in last; price will be tempting. Missymoonlitmagic was second to a dominant winner in last at Pid and owns a win on Belmont grass. Downtown Hottie makes quick comeback and drops after tough-trip fourth in last.
