7 Scam(L) 118 Lezcano 1-3-3 McGaughey III 5-2

Scam tallied solid final fraction when winning last and logged four tight works in the interim. Street Thug is fleet-footed and will prove very tough on a soft lead. Indy's Illusion is riding a forward line on the numbers and packs potent late kick on 'A' game; price will be tempting.

7 Margin of Victory(L1) 120 Luzzi 6-x-x Grusmark 20-1

8 Groupthink(L) 120 Castellano 2-2-x Brown 7-5

Sioux adds blinkers and logged two 5-furlong works since debut; forward move predicted. Groupthink has finished second at short odds in both starts; you've been warned. Sideways Vision hails from potent sprint-to-route stable (Levine); right in the thick of this.

10 Roman Invader(L) 118 Cohen 5-1-5 Jacobson 4-1

11 Welcome Guest(L) 118 No Rider 2-2-1 Dutrow 7-2

Baffle Me rated kindly when winning from stalker's seat last out; crisp half-mile in the interim seals the deal. Anna Sophia lost by an inch last time and should pack amplified kick with cutback to 7 furlongs. Assateague is a front-running threat on best efforts.

4

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $16,000. Purse: $26,000.

1 Locks of Gold(L) 115 Vargas, Jr 3-6-7 Quartarolo 5-1

10 Joda's Ten 123 Perez 10-8-x Simeone 20-1

Main Track Only

11 Myperfectvalentine(L) 120 No Rider 7-7-3 Gullo 6-5

Locks of Gold made sustained rally from half-mile call to the wire last time and turnback to 6 furlongs should enhance late wallop. Hidden Music carved the fractions when fourth behind top selection last time; speedy and dangerous. Rufus Ruth held a half-length to the good on 'Gold' when a game second on Oct. 11; obviously can take this.

1 Mile. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $35,000. Purse: $40,000.

11 Lemon Song(L) 117 Lezcano 3-1-7 Jolley, Jr 5-1

Main Track Only

12 Assyria(L) 120 No Rider 5-3-3 Clement 2-1

Ephyra fired two half-mile bullets since pace compromised when fifth in budding key race at Prx last time; more to come. Wickapecko is speedy and will be aided by today's shorter trip. Bozique was a tough-trip second on turf two starts back and late-running style suits probable pace dynamincs.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $16,000. Purse: $30,000.

11 Corinthianna(L) 118 Castellano 5-6-1 Galluscio 6-1

Main Track Only

12 Gee Linz(L) 118 No Rider 9-7-2 Schettino 4-1

Jacobson entry: Dust Em Mick tallied solid final fraction in last and mate Normandy is speedy, rested and drops; potent pairing. Fantastic Eyes was victimized by poor start and wide trip in last; very playable. Going Going Gone finally got the job done in fifteenth start; last-race winner demands respect.

1 Mile. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $34,000.

1 Lily Lynn(L) 121 Ortiz 4-3-1 Nevin 2-1

7 Mon Rose(L) 121 Lezcano 2-3-2 Persaud 12-1

8 Private Councel(L) 121 Rodriguez 8-6-8 Goodwin 30-1

Lily Lynn is training with a purpose for first start in 65 days for barn that posts solid numbers with fresh and rested runners. World Premier raced against the grain of the track last time and owns fast back figures. Hot Splash owns two wins at the distance and makes peak start of form cycle. Mess in a Dress should be aided by return to dirt; don't dismiss.

11/16 Miles. 3yo. Fillies. THE BELLE CHERIE. Purse: $100,000.

1 Ol Donyo(L) 122 Arroyo 1-3-2 Terranova 8-1

5 Wedding Toast(L) 117 Castellano 1-1-2 McLaughlin 3-5

6 Flash Forward(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 2-1-2 Schettino 5-1

Wedding Toast visually and numerically impressed when winning last; rates close call in tough heat. Diva Spirt earned competitive numbers when winning two in a row at Del; dangerous. Sheer Drama is another that's riding a two-race winning streak; right in the thick of this.

9

Main Track Only

14 Ghostly Vision(L) 118 No Rider 3-1-4 Schettino 9-5

15 Papa Tom(L) 121 No Rider 6-6-8 Ubillo 8-1

Rocky F has been idle for nearly a year but hails from capable layoff barn and owns fast late pace figures on best efforts. Make a Decision overcame soft fractions when a determined winner in last; very playable. Mia Poppy could play out as the speed of the speed with aggressive ride. Why Not Whiskey packs a powerful late kick on 'A' game.

11/16 Miles. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $85,000.

15 Atlantic Dream(L) 120 Velazquez 3-10-3 Pletcher 5-2

16 Pleasant Cat(L) 120 Lezcano 4-2-4 Bush 3-1

Pleasant Cat consistently logs fast figures; rates call if able to escape AE list. Atlantic Dream, another that needs scratches to get in, bested top selection by a length on Oct. 5; dangerous. Giant's Jewel displayed out-of-the-blue speed when failing as the favorite last time; return to rating tactics is the key. Cloture was pace and position compromised in first start since 10-month absence last time; more to give today.
