11 Full of Intent(L) 118 No Rider 1-6-6 Levine 4-1

12 Fiftyfour Forever(L) 118 Castellano 2-2-3 Quartarolo 2-1

Jitney won two straight at the Spa and fired crisp half-mile since returning downstate. Wholelottashakin was second to a repeat winner in last and should pack amplified kick at 7 furlongs. Eden Is Burning is the one that must be caught; logical, short-priced player. Paraiba logged most recent win this course and trip last fall; price will be tempting.

8 Inquiring(L) 118 Ortiz 2-5-7 Antonucci 5-1

9 Azasecret(L) 120 Castro 4-8-5 Jerkens 5-1

Fundsalo Jones gets class relief and could make big-time forward move in second start since January. Appealetta has worked three times since game placing in last; logical favorite. Azasecret flashed improved speed in last; dangerous.

5 Take Down Two(L) 121 Velasquez 5-1-1 Galluscio 5-1

6 Wishful Tomcat(L) 121 Lopez 10-8-4 Granville 20-1

Megalith fired half-mile bullet since hard-charging score in last; more to give in first start since claimed by Peter Walder. He's So Chic will be the prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues. Marquet Cat could prove very tough on an unchallenged lead.

6 Rice to Riches(L1) 120 Velazquez x-x-x Pletcher 2-1

7 Rumble Seat(L) 120 Lopez 4-2-2 Coletti, Sr. 8-1

Colorme Kitten shows tight work tab for return from 54-day freshener. Rumble Seat makes peak start of form cycle and returns to dirt; very interesting. Tiz Amore was an even fourth in debut; right in the thick of this.

14 Burned Bridges(L) 120 No Rider 9-5-11 Persaud 20-1

15 Artist Colony(L) 120 Velasquez 8-2-9 Englehart 12-1

Maserati motored a fast final fraction when a tough-trip sixth in debut; more to give. In Speight Ofitall is firing bullets for return from 46-day freshener for Rick Dutrow; very dangerous. Input earned rapid figures when second in both turf starts; could easily take this.

1 Meeker Avenue(L1) 120 Espinoza x-x-x Schettino 6-1

12 Can't Catch Me Now(L) 120 Dominguez 4-3-8 Gullo 3-1

13 Noosh's Tale 120 Espinoza 8-x-x Kelly 15-1

Goodtolook was a game second in first turf start. Meeker Avenue compiled sneaky-good work tab for dangerous first-out stable. One Smokin' Cat should improve with race under belt; don't ignore.

9 Orsonian(L) 115 Ortiz 5-5-2 Rodriguez 7-2

10 Larry's Vision(L) 120 Prado 7-3-10 Nicks 12-1

Cure is rested and packs solid late punch on best efforts; rates close call. Madman Diaries could play out as the main speed in first start since claimed by Jason Servis; very dangerous. Orsonian drops and owns fast figs on 'A' game; big-time threat.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Claiming $30,000-$25,000. Purse: $45,000.

8 Bristol Dancer(L) 117 Smith 4-3-3 Cesare 20-1

9 Smokin Hero(L) 120 Lezcano 2-7-6 Englehart 7-2

Martini Madness fired eye-catching half-mile bullet since last-to-first victory in most recent; rates call based on price potential. Hewitts owns speed and fast figures; more than good enough on best. Brother in Arms has been on the bench since March, but is right in the thick of this on 'A' efforts.

14 Sokitumi Samurai(L) 120 Castellano 6-3-2 Parisella 2-1

15 Light of Truth(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 4-3-7 Serpe 6-1

Magnificent Moon makes first start with maiden claiming tag and should offer generous ticket in weak nightcap. Bundestag was game second in last; must respect. King Keene is speedy and should be tighter in second start since nine-month absence; very interesting. Twigazuri Straight owns fast late pace figs and gets class relief. Hyarima makes peak start of form cycle and could land exotic at fat price.
