7Crazy Over Easy(L)122Velasquez4-3-3Englehart4-1

Crazy Over Easy looms the speed of the speed with aggressive ride. D' Kennesaw Cat tallied very fast figure when second in lone start at Belmont; very dangerous. Nejma could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues.

6Forensic(L)124Bravo5-4-2McGaughey III5-1


Forensic logged two sharp works since two-move fifth in last; tighter today. Bishop's Pond runs late and could be ideally suited by 10-furlong trip. Castellani was a game second in last; right in the thick of this.

7The Big Deluxe(L)113Cancel2-8-7Rodriguez5-2

Bass River Road gets class relief and favorable cutback in distance. Bug Juice should pack enhanced late kick at 6 furlongs; very playable. The Big Deluxe was a fast-figured second in last; must consider.

9More Hundred Acre(L)120Arroyo5-1-5Ibrahim15-1

Wild Finish drops two price levels and 7-furlong trip should play to strength. Fiona's Hero is speedy and should be aided by turnback to sprint. Reggie D packs a potent late kick on 'A' game.

9Salisbury Knight(L)120Silvera1-3-3Persaud10-1

Smokem's Charm is riding a forward line on pace and final figures; breakthrough effort predicted. Jeter packs a strong stretch punch on best efforts; dangerous. Chilton has been sidelined for exactly one year but is training with a purpose; mixed message.


1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf). Allowance. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $77,000.

11Easy Living(L)124Velasquez1-7-5McLaughlin5-1

Striking Style notched only win on Belmont sod and is training sharply for first start since November. Morethanawarning is another that logged lone lifetime victory on Belmont grass; price will be tempting. Achnaha displayed a solid closing kick on both stateside starts at GP; dangerous.

7Shotgun Love(L)124Alvarado3-3-2Schettino5-1

Paradise Peak was pace and trip compromised in last; cutback to 6 furlongs is the key. Women Win displayed improved early foot in last and should be tighter in second start since two-month layoff. Shotgun Love is speedy but has lost ground in the lane in all four starts; handle with care at short ticket. Spuntastic hails from potent second-out stable (Kiaran McLaughlin); must respect.

11Starship Pleasant(L)120Velasquez7-1-3Servis20-1

Pedal Princess motors late and should be aided by today's added ground. Hillhouse High owns two wins and two seconds in four starts on Belmont turf; could easily take this. Aventurte Love is quick from the gate and will prove very tough on a soft lead.


1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf). Claiming $40,000. 3&up. Purse: $40,000.

12Street Gent(L)120No Rider5-7-6Handal6-1

Romans Paradise owns fast final fractions and compiled endurance-building work tab for first start in 77 days. Point Hope was a dominant winner in last and could transfer raging form to turf; very playable. Third Frontier owns speed and should be favorably positioned near the front in bulky field. Melville is rested and owns fast final figs on best efforts.
