Best bet: BOSS THREE O TWO (2)

Best value: TASS (7)

FIRST: Quiescent projects as the main speed in weak opener. Nay Slayer fired crisp half-mile work since last start. Firing Fast is from a dam that has produced four winners from four foals to race; follow the money.

SECOND: Boss Three O Two tallied fast late-pace figure when winning debut; more to come. Brick Ambush has failed as the favorite in last two outings; you've been warned. Quiet Wisdom broke maiden by 10 lengths last time; right in the thick of this.

THIRD: Run Devil owns speed and drops; soft field helps. Vegas Weekend made premature middle to the lead last out; dangerous. Suspended Campaign owns fast back numbers; don't ignore.

FOURTH: Pappou's Laugh gets blinkers and Lasix makeover after speed and fade in debut; tight work tab seals the deal. Piccolo Diavolo drops after firing swift half-mile breeze last week; very playable. Apuro makes third start of form cycle; worth long look.

FIFTH: Russi tallied fast late-pace figure in both grass starts last year; sharp work tab for return seals the deal. Allied Attack could prove very tough on an unchallenged lead. Big Prankster was a hard-charging second in lone turf outing; must consider.

SIXTH: Calling an Audible is riding a forward line on the numbers; rates close call. Aunt Yola bested a next-out winner when an improved second in last. Five to Two displayed improved speed in last; very interesting.

SEVENTH: Tass should be ideally positioned near the front in bulky field. Spirit And Glory regressed in last after determined win in prior; rebound threat. Marvelous Maude hails from Chad Brown barn but must overcome daunting post; mixed message.

EIGHTH: Primed to Go logs field's fastest final fractions; first-time Lasix seals the deal. Battle of Britain is fleet-footed and could prove very tough on a soft lead. Black Diamond drilled three times since last start; dangerous. Coast Along owns speed and has the benefit of the rail on tight-turned turf course; worth long look.
