Precious Metal tallied swift final fraction when a clear-cut winner on dirt last out and owns two wins on Belmont sod. Northern Tripp was pace and trip compromised last time; price will be tempting. Fourseventeen makes peak start of form cycle and owns fast back figures.

9 Branded Hand 120 Lezcano 4-5-x Mott 15-1

10 All My Memories(L) 120 Velasquez 4-x-x Servis 15-1

Endowment Manager fired 5-furlong bullet since strong second in debut; more to come. Misconnect also has trained sharply since game second first out; big-time danger. Tourist is working swiftly fro debut for Mott; could be the goods.

1 Genuine Flare 120 Alvarado x-x-x Mott 12-1

10 Storming Inti(L) 120 Castellano 3-x-x Brown 3-1

Main Track Only

11 Souper Lucky(L) 120 Castellano 2-3-5 Albertrani 6-5

Mack Miller displayed improved early foot in last and projects as the main speed with aggressive ride. Behedeman logged three tight works since wide trip in debut; very interesting. This Guy Is Blue made mild rally in debut and should appreciate today's longer trip.

6 Furlongs. Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $72,000.

1 Ambassador Bridge(L) 120 Saez 3-2-5 Gyarmati 10-1

11 Quiet Miracle(L) 112 Vargas, Jr 7-3-3 Granville 50-1

12 Western Grit(L) 117 Alvarado 1-2-8 Asmussen 8-1

Sportswriter gets class relief and makes third start since five-month absence. Cay to Pomeroy is speedy and logged three tight works since last start; very playable. Reggie D packs a potent late kick on best efforts; worth long look.

1 1/8 Mile. The BELDAME INVITATIONAL (Grade I). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $400,000.

1 Roman Invader(L) 123 Alvarado 1-5-2 Jacobson 20-1

3 And Why Not(L) 123 Saez 5-3-2 Matz 20-1

4 Royal Delta 123 Smith 1-1-2 Mott 3-5

5 Centring(L) 123 Maragh 3-4-3 Albertrani 8-1

6 Lady Cohiba(L) 123 Ortiz, Jr 1-3-4 Clement 15-1

Princess of Sylmar tackles older females after soild score in Alabama; needs best. Royal Delta was eased up when winning Personal Ensign last time; obviously could romp. Centring could impact if pace meltdown ensues.

6

1 Mile. The KELSO INVITATIONAL (Grade II). 3&up. Purse: $400,000.

1 Easter Gift(L) 116 Smith 2-1-1 Brown 5-2

4 Hymn Book(L) 116 Velazquez 2-2-2 McGaughey III 6-1

5 Souper Speedy(L) 115 Lezcano 1-4-1 Albertrani 7-2

6 Brujo de Olleros(L) 115 Garcia 1-2-4 Mettee 12-1

Jackson Bend is riding a forward line on the numbers and today's additional furlong suits. Souper Speedy was a determined winner in last and could make another forward move; price will be tempting. Graydar owns fast figures but has been on the bench for 182 days and will offer short ticket; mixed message.

7

6 Furlongs. The VOSBURGH INVITATIONAL (Grade I). 3&up. Purse: $400,000.

1 Forty Tales(L) 122 Castellano 4-1-1 Pletcher 7-2

2 Justin Phillip(L) 124 Velazquez 3-1-4 Asmussen 3-1

3 Bahamian Squall(L) 124 Saez 2-1-4 Fawkes 4-1

7 Candyman E(L) 124 Bravo 2-4-4 Mareina 12-1

8 Private Zone(L) 124 Pedroza 1-9-2 O'Neill 4-1

Forty Tales gets rider upgrade after tough trip in Kings Bishop; 1-for-1 at Belmont Park. Strapping Groom was a determined front-running winner in Forego last time; very dangerous as the controlling speed once again. Justin Phillip is right in the thick of contentious Vosburgh on 'A' game.

8

11/8 Mile (Turf). The FLOWER BOWL INVITATIONAL (Grade I). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $600,000.

1 Tannery(L) 121 Castellano 4-8-1 Goldberg 8-5

2 Mystical Star(L) 119 Alvarado 1-3-5 Clement 4-1

1a Laughing(L) 123 Lezcano 1-1-1 Goldberg 8-5

7 White Rose(L) 115 Velazquez 2-1-2 Mott 15-1

Qushchi notched swift late pace figure when a sharp winner in last; ready for prime time. Somali Lemonade owns swift final fractions on best efforts; dangerous. Laughing has won three straight this year; could easily take another.

9

1 1/2 Mile. (Widener Turf). The JOE HIRSCH TURF CLASSIC INVITATIONAL (Grade I). 3&up. Purse: $600,000.

3 Nutello(L1) 126 Lezcano 3-7-8 Motion 8-1

1 Imagining(L) 126 Velazquez 1-10-1 McGaughey III 4-1

2 Big Blue Kitten(L) 126 Bravo 1-1-2 Brown 8-5

5 Twilight Eclipse(L) 126 Castellano 2-2-5 Albertrani 7-2

1a Boisterous(L) 126 Velazquez 3-8-1 McGaughey III 4-1

2x Joes Blazing Aaron(L) 126 Maragh 4-6-3 Maker 8-5

6 King Kreesa(L) 126 Ortiz, Jr 2-1-1 Englehart 12-1

7 Little Mike(L) 126 Smith 6-4-11 Romans 10-1

Boisterous has failed as the favorite in last two starts but fired half-mile bullet on Monday and could be sitting on rebound effort. Big Blue Kitten made sustained rally to win Sword Dancer last time; very dangerous. Joes Blazing Aaron's speed gives him a puncher's chance; worth long look in first start since claimed by Ramsey/Maker.

11/4 Mile. The JOCKEY CLUB GOLD CUP INVITATIONAL

(Grade I). 3&up. Purse: $1,000,000.

1 Ron the Greek(L) 126 Lezcano 4-4-3 Mott 12-1

7 Palace Malice(L) 122 Smith 4-1-1 Pletcher 4-1

8 Cross Traffic(L) 126 Velazquez 1-2-2 Pletcher 5-2

Last Gunfighter was a tenacious winner in Iselin at Mth last time and owns win and second in two starts at Belmont. Palace Malice was victimized by poor start and soft pace when fourth in the Travers; dangerous. Flat Out bested top selection by nearly three lengths when winning Suburban and owns five wins at Belmont Park.

14 Cake N Cookies(L1) 120 Saez x-x-x Schettino 8-1

15 Done Smoking(L) 120 Lezcano 3-4-x Clement 5-1

Main Track Only

16 Light Weight(L) 120 No Rider 2-5-10 Barker 8-1

Echluath projects as the controlling speed in wide-open nightcap. Stock Fund is 0-for-21 and has finished second in last three starts; continues trend? Coriander should pack amplified late kick with cutback to 7 furlongs. Live Life Fast has finished second in both starts and must be factored into the mix if able to escape AE list.
