10 First Bid(L1) 120 Castellano x-x-x Brown 2-1

Little Boss tallied solid final fraction when a strong second last time. Enthrone was less than a length behind top selection after racing wide in last; dangerous. Uptown Joe compiled sharp work tab for debut; follow the money.

5 Domino Derval(L) 120 Velazquez 2-x-x Pletcher 5-2

6 Garzoni 120 Saez 4-x-x Albertrani 10-1

Tizarocket logged two, swift 5-furlong drills since late-running third in debut; Contessa barn is finding the mark in recent days. Domino Derval notched three tight drills since pace-setting second in debut; could easily take this. Glacken's Gift makes first start for Clement; could be the goods.

10 Crystal Rocket(L) 120 Saez 6-2-6 Contessa 10-1

11 Bridget Moloney(L1) 120 Cohen x-x-x Gullo 12-1

Maybry's Fortune moves to dirt and gets class relief after pop and stop effort on turf in debut; tighter today. My Jimmy Chew Girl also drops and should improve in second start for Pletcher. Livininthefastlane fired half-mile bullet last Thursday; don't dismiss.

1 Idle American(L) 121 Fragoso 7-4-8 Kelly 10-1

10 North Ocean(L) 121 No Rider 3-1-1 Rodriguez 9-5

Vinny Goodtimes tallied swift final fraction when roaring past the field to win last; more to come. Idle American gets class relief and packs potent late kick on 'A' game; very playable. Valid fired half-mile bullet since front-running third in last; right in the thick of this.

7 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Maiden Claiming $20,000. Purse: $28,000.

1 Lady C Note(L) 115 Franco 3-x-x Antonucci 15-1

2 Mononoke(L) 120 Prado 7-4-5 Martin 9-2

3 Isn'tshewonderfull(L) 120 Alvarado 8-5-9 Tagg 8-1

4 My Lucky Lieu 120 Teator 3-5-3 Toscano, Jr 6-1

5 Shoptillclosing(L) 123 Rodriguez 8-2-7 DiPrima 12-1

6 Canela Rose(L) 120 Arroyo 5-10-3 Kelly 12-1

7 Transit Express(L) 123 Lezcano 2-x-x Contessa 3-1

8 Carole Lee(L) 120 Ortiz 7-3-9 Donk 7-2

9 Jupiter Moon(L) 123 Luzzi 4-2-6 Baker 6-1

Transit Express was a clear-cut second behind a repeat winner in debut and logged three tight works last month. My Lucky Lieu was a game third in last and should have more in the tank in second start since five-month layoff. Shoptillclosing was eased in the mud last time but should prove far more formidable on dry land.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Allowance. Purse: $72,000.

1 Ave's Halo(L) 121 Velasquez 4-2-2 Rice 3-1

8 Eurokay by Me(L) 116 Franco 2-8-11 Schwartz 15-1

9 Hlao Roo(L) 121 Alvarado 6-6-12 Gyarmati 10-1

10 Concealed(L) 118 Arroyo 1-5-10 Miranda 20-1

11 Take It Inside(L) 121 Velazquez 2-3-2 Gorham 5-1

Concealed notched determined victory at 62-1 the first time she set foot on Belmont sod; pairs up at another fat ticket. Ave's Halo gets favorable cutback in distance but has lost as the favorite in last two starts; mixed message. My Uptown Gal owns fast figures and tallied only win on Belmont grass; big-time player.

6 Furlongs. 3yo. Fillies. THE CATINCA. Purse: $100,000.

1 Lighthouse Bay(L) 122 Rocco, Jr 5-1-1 Weaver 8-5

2 Maracuya(L) 119 Velazquez 1-7-4 Nicks 9-5

3 Profetiza(L) 117 Lezcano 3-5-1 Mott 8-1

4 Bridgehampton(L) 117 Ortiz 2-1-5 Hushion 4-1

5 Baby J(L) 122 Castellano 8-1-3 Reynolds 5-1

Maracuya was a front-running winner in most recent and strung victories together to start career; history repeats. Bridgehampton is fresh and owns fast numbers; very dangerous. Lighthouse Bay regressed in Test Stakes after fast-figured score in prior; more than good enough on 'A' effort.

1 Mile. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $75,000.

1 Done Smoking(L) 120 Lezcano 3-4-x Clement 3-1

2 Amber Morning(L) 120 Velazquez 2-4-x Serpe 2-1

3 Left Uppercut(L) 118 Vargas, Jr 11-8-2 Matties 20-1

7 Uman Candy 115 Franco 5-4-5 Iselin 12-1

8 Music Maid 113 Castillo, Jr 10-x-x Smith 30-1

9 Eddy's Time(L) 120 Prado 2-3-5 Tagg 7-2

10 Blue Z Gal 120 Arroyo x-x-x Feron 20-1

Also Eligible

11 Quiet Kiss(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 4-6-7 Bush 8-1

12 As Well(L) 120 Castellano 5-2-3 Hennig 6-1

13 Destinys Mystery(L) 115 Franco 5-x-x Torelli 30-1

Chow Fun made wide rally en route to clear-cut placing last out and worked three times in the interim. Eddy's Time is another that's trained consistently since solid second in most recent; big-time threat. Left Uppercut makes peak start of form cycle and owns fast back numbers; worth long look at long price. Done Smoking was just a nose behind 'Eddy' when third on Aug. 3 and logged five tight works for return.
