15 Steal the Shot(L) 4-3-1 Desormeaux Schosberg 116 4-1

16 Hittin the Note(L) 2-5-4 Dominguez Schosberg 116 7-2

Monastir was pace compromised in last and could offer best price potential in contentious opener. Seattle Mission has yet to deliver a poor effort and starts from rail on tight-turned course; big-time player. Kuggerand is training with a purpose for barn that's profitable with rested runners. Leatherhead must be factored into mix if able to escape AE list.

15 Gold Collection(L) 2-2-6 No Rider Mott 119 7-2

16 Remark(L) 2-2-3 No Rider McLaughlin 119 3-1

Neenie's House is working sharply for first start since April and hails from barn that logs strong numbers with runners stretching to a route. Home Rule logged fast late pace figure when a clear-cut second in last; very playable. Holy Place should improve in second start and Pletcher switches to Velazquez.

3

6 1/2 Furlongs. Allowance. 3&up. Purse: $52,000

1 Aspire(L) 3-12-3 Leparoux Kenneally 116 2-1

6 Bimini(L) 4-5-2 Castellano McGaughey 120 6-1

7 Footcandles(L) 7-2-1 Maragh Kimmel 120 15-1

Aspire logged swift internal numbers in comeback from seven-month layoff and has trained sharply in the interim. Mad For Smarty was compromised by wide trip in last and now makes peak start of form cycle. Bimini adds blinkers and fired two bullet works since last race; dangerous.

1 1/16 Mile. (Mellon Turf). Claiming $25,000. 3&up. Purse: $29,000.

15 Tar Beach(L) 2-6-2 Maragh Brown 121 7-2

16 Chef Eric(L) 1-1-5 Lenclud Stall 112 3-1

Brad's My Hero logged five tightly grouped workouts since closing into hot final fraction last month; best price potential of the contenders. Simple Kind Of Man tallied swift late pace and final figures in last two starts at LaD; big-time threat. Dunvegan owns sprinter's speed and could prove tough on a soft lead.

15 Ponte Vecchio(L) 4-8-9 No Rider Weaver 123 8-1

1a Brolio(L1) x-x-x No Rider Bond 119 15-1

City Train moves to turf after earning improved pace and final figures in last at Prm; 5-furlong bullet on Spa sod this past Monday seals the deal. Roderick exits game placing and starts from best seat in the house; very dangerous. Whateverittakes made four-wide middle move when four lengths behind Roderick last out; right in the thick of this.

15 Stealth Missile(L) 6-2-4 Dominguez Levine 123 7-2

16 African Diamond(L) 5-2-4 Lezcano Brown 123 5-2

Unaccountable tallied fast-figured third in lone start on Spa turf last summer and is training consistently for first start since January. Dantastic is right in the thick of this on best efforts. Cinder Cone has reeled off three straight on dirt at FL; razor-sharp and dangerous. Lemon Shore's speed must be respected.

7

8 With the Current(L1) x-x-x Velazquez Pletcher 118 5-1

9 Allison Renee(L) 2-x-x Mena Scherer 118 4-1

Playing Pirates fired eye-catching string of bullets since tough trip debut at CD; call in juvenile crapshoot. Allison Renee was second to a runaway winner after breaking in air in first start; dangerous. Malibu Cougar gets Lasix in debut for Asmussen; good easily be the goods.

10 Silver Edition(L) 7-5-6 Borel Lukas 121 30-1

Cool Coal Man notched fast figure when winning key race last month at Mth and earned top back figure at the Spa last summer. Half Metal Jacket exits convincing score in last and is 2-for-3 at today's 7-furlong distance; very playable. Vineyard Haven is a multiple Grade 1 winner; could easily take this.

9

6 Furlongs. The SCHUYLERVILLE (Grade III). 2yo. Fillies. Purse: $100,000.

2 Stopspendingmaria(L) 1-3-x Velazquez Pletcher 119 7-2

6 Show Me the Bling(L) 1-x-x Leparoux Biancone 119 3-1

1a Final Mesa(L) 1-1-1 Coa Ward 121 2-1

Show Me The Bling has trained impressively since determined score in debut at Mth; more to come in ultra-contentious Schuylerville. Le Mi Geaux was unfazed by fast fractions when breaking maiden at CD; very dangerous. Final Mesa has yet to taste defeat in three career starts; big-time threat. Stopspendingmaria broke maiden by seven lengths in last start; serious player.

13 Unbridled Fury(L) 7-6-1 Castellano Brown 117 6-1

14 Redwood Fever(L) 8-7-5 Gomez Benzel 117 20-1

In Just We Trust gets class relief and favorable cutback to sprint in bulky nightcap field where the pace could get hot and heavy. Scorch The Torch is riding an improving line on the numbers and will offer generous price. Run To Grand Ave. owns fast figures on 'A' game; dangerous. Hillswick is working consistently for first start since October.
