9 Political Justice(L) 121 Maragh 7-4-4 Araya 5-1

Springcourt returns to turf and owns fast back figures on dirt. Jacobson entry: St Liams Halo and Wayward Sailor both make first start since claimed by DAS/Jacobson; just one goes with Velasquez listed on both. Political Justice's speed gives him a puncher's chance.

7 The Culchie(L) 120 Rodriguez 5-10-8 Antonucci 20-1

8 Spin Chief(L) 118 Franco 9-4-x Domino 8-1

Spin Chief displayed improved speed in last and could get the early jump in field that's void of front-runners. Navajo Ca Lo owns fast figures on best efforts and makes second start for white-hot Chris Englehart barn. Red Shogun was second at 55-1 in last; must consider.

71/2 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. THE PRINCESS DIXIE. Purse: $100,000.

5 Princess Mara(L) 118 Saez 5-5-6 Contessa 15-1

6 Willet(L) 123 Arroyo 1-2-5 Iselin 1-1

Willet consistently logs the field's fastest final figures. Miss Valentine regressed in last after finishing just a nose behind top selection in prior; rebound potential. Dreaming of Cara returns to dirt and cuts back in distance; amplified kick predicted.

7 Frazil(L) 118 Velasquez 5-5-5 Rice 8-1

8 Anaphylaxis(L) 118 Velazquez 4-6-5 Wolferseder 5-1

Sinorice tallied solid final fraction when a determined winner in last; rates call based on price potential. Frazil makes quick comeback after failing to show usual speed in the mud on Saturday; serious front-running threat on best. Point Taken bested top selection by four lengths when third on Saturday; right in the thick of this.

11 Alwaysinmycircle(L) 121 No Rider 6-5-4 Schettino 6-1

Implied owns sprinter's speed and starts from the hedge and projects as the controlling front-runner with aggressive ride. Clever Spirit notched only win on Belmont sod and packs strong kick on best; very interesting. Beverage Queen was fourth in race taken off the turf this past Sunday and would be aided by pace meltdown. Casual Elegance should move forward in third start since May.

13 Margaret Ownzit(L) 120 No Rider 3-x-x Rodriguez 5-1

Archer Queen displayed good turn of late foot in debut and additional sixteenth should play to strength. May Shares chased fast fractions when a strong second in debut; could easily take this. Missy Bay showed speed when fourth as the favorite in first start; dangerous.

9 Metro(L) 120 Ortiz 6-9-5 Terranova 5-1

10 Take It Easy Baba(L) 116 Castillo, Jr 10-3-10 Frisco 15-1

Omos Journey drops to lifetime low after taking backward step on the numbers last out; bounces back today. Magic Middleton owns fast figures but has been sidelined for more than a year; must take the good with the bad. Pentagram adds blinkers and makes peak start of form cycle; right in the thick of this.

11 Chapman(L) 118 No Rider 3-3-2 Englehart 3-1

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

Barrel of Love gets class relief, turns back to sprint and should pack enhanced late kick in wide-open nightcap. Sandy'z Slew was a front-running winner in last and logged three tight works in the interim; very playable. Writingonthewall also is a fleet-footed, last-race winner; dangerous. Dehere of the Cat owns a solid stretch wallop that should be well served in turf debut.
