7 Samhoon(L) 1-1-7 Maragh Englehart 120 2-1

Chris Got Even logged career best number this surface and trip last fall; Zito barn is enjoying strong meeting. Samhoon is 2-for-3 at Belmont and is fresh and owns fast figures; very dangerous. Reflect Times would be aided by hot fractions; price will be tempting.

8 Hey Valentina(L1) x-x-x Dominguez Ice 118 6-1

1a Preachninthestreet(L1) x-x-x Castellano Benzel 118 12-1

4 Driven by Success(L) 1-4-6 Velazquez Pletcher 117 8-5

5 Legal Consent(L) 2-3-4 Lezcano Martin 119 4-1

Dr. W is rested and projects as the main speed in small field. Driven By Success was fast-figured winner in last; is bounce looming? Legal Consent is firing bullets for first start since October; right in the thick of this.

4

1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf). Claiming $16,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $24,000.

6 Refinery Fire(L) 5-1-3 Maragh DiPrima 123 3-1

7 Wise Choice(L) 4-7-8 Dominguez Sciacca 121 5-1

Morningsideheights broke maiden the first time she touched Belmont sod; more to come. Beautiful Pear owns sprinter's speed and may enjoy soft lead; dangerous. Refinery Fire raced wide in last, but is more than good enough on 'A' game.

5

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). Claiming $20,000. 3&up. Purse: $26,000.

1 Volponi Dragon(L) 9-6-7 Chavez Ferraro 123 12-1

7 Aly's Wheat(L) 7-5-5 Luzzi Hernandez 123 15-1

8 Quick to Charm(L) 1-1-2 Garcia Maker 123 2-1

Avanti Avanti exits sprint tune-up in last and will be aided by today's longer trip. King Carter is training with a purpose for first start since December; very playable. Quick To Charm is another that's working consistently for return from long layoff; must respect. Pavoratti's Soul could prove very tough as the main speed.

6

1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf). Maiden Claiming $60,000-$50,000. 3yo. Fillies. Purse: $33,000.

1 Olive Eye(L) 2-3-3 Castellano Lostritto 120 8-1

8 Curlina(L) 5-4-7 Prado Hough 120 8-1

Main Track Only

9 Cat Be Nimble(L) 5-6-2 Garcia Tagg 122 8-5

Smarti Bobbi returns from helpful 53-day freshener with solid works after ultra-game placing in most recent; primed and ready. The West Rim, a strong second in last, was just neck behind top selection on May 9; big-time player. Olive Eye has trained sharply since solid placing in last; worth long look.

7

1 Mile. (Widener Turf). Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $55,000.

1 Ms Stilleto(L) 1-1-3 Maragh Schettino 123 8-1

6 House of Grace(L) 3-1-1 Dominguez bin Suroor 115 2-1

Main Track Only

7 Dancing Daisy(L) 4-1-3 No Rider Donk 120 6-1

Ms Stilleto overcame slow pace to win last and loves Belmont turf and Schettino barn is enjoying strong meet; rates call based on price potential. House Of Grace compiled tightly grouped work tab for first start since BC Juvenile Fillies Turf last November and hails from potent layoff barn. Granted Tiger logged swift 5-furlong breeze since speed sharpened in sprint last; dangerous. Absolute Heaven holds razor-sharp current condition; right in the thick of this.

7 Next Day(L) 5-2-4 Rodriguez Persaud 116 8-1

8 Nolite Timere(L) 3-3-4 Espinoza Ferraro 121 12-1

Good Karma logged two swift half-mile drills for return to dirt and owns fast figures on 'A' game; rider upgrade seals the deal. Schosberg entry: Hittin The Note gets class relief and switches back to main track and mate Steal The Shot fired half-mile bullet on Saturday; potent pairing. Fight For VLT's was fast-figured winner in last; prohibitive price is the problem.

2b La Belle Gabrielle 1-3-5 No Rider Martin 118 10-1

Count Her In tallied swift late pace figure in lone turf start last fall and now makes first outing with a maiden claiming tag. Tropical Jetset defeated a next-out winner when a clear-cut second in last; very playable. No Imagination is fresh and training consistently; big-time danger. Marie's Babe owns sprinter's speed and may play out as the controlling front-runner.
