Mr. Style was a breakthrough winner in last and now makes first start since claimed by David Jacobson. Lucci the Lion didn't care for mud last time but owns fast figures on dry land; dangerous. Town Hall drops and is another that makes first start since claimed by Jacobson; right in the thick of this. Derby Watch's speed gives him a puncher's chance.

Main Track Only

10 Native Singer(L) 120 Velazquez 5-2-2 Gullo 9-5

Irish Jade makes peak start of form cycle, turns back to 7 furlongs and should pack intensified late wallop. Sunnysider is another that will possess amplified kick at shorter trip. Sayaprayerforme is speedy and can prove a very tough customer on a soft lead.

9 Thinking of Girls(L) 120 Velazquez 1-3-7 Stoklosa 12-1

Frazil loves Belmont Park, needed last and fired 5-furlong bullet last week; rates call based on price potential. Point Taken is a last-race winner that should pack enhanced punch with cutback to 6 furlongs. Haverhill is rested and owns fast figures on 'A' game.

Paris Vegas was victimized by soft front-end flow when a clear-cut second in last; set for best in third start since April.

Dance Card fired a pair of 5-furlong bullet drills for first start since Nov. 24; close call in ultra-contentious Gallant Bloom Handicap. Dance to Bristol has been nothing short of spectacular in winning seven in a row; big-time threat. Clusters of Stars is speedy and yet to taste defeat in five starts; enjoy.
