Best bet: JOEY THE FISH (2)

Best value: LOGIN REQUIRED (3)

FIRST: Natural Fact logged three tight drills since improved third in last; more to come. You're Forever drops after showing improved speed in last; dangerous. Classic Cara is rested and gets Lasix; price will be tempting.

SECOND: Joey the Fish regressed in last after determined win in prior; rebounds. Sister Linda owns speed but has been tumbling down the claiming ladder in recent starts; mixed message. Embraceable Gal is training consistently for first outing since New Year's Eve; don't ignore.

THIRD: Login Required is firing bullets for first start in eight weeks; ready. Bolt d'Plata makes third start of form cycle and logged works since last start; very interesting. Clare Quilty bested second selection by a length when a game second in debut; bounces today?

FOURTH: Uncle George projects as the main speed with heads-up handling. Reserve Currency could be the prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues. Magia Nera was second to a runaway winner last time; must consider.

FIFTH: Complete Agenda holds an edge on final figures. Stop the Spread is riding a forward line on the numbers. Disappearance would be aided by fast fractions.

SIXTH: Best Bet drops two price levels after weakening in last; fire sale? Uncle Water Flow could be in the garden spot if top selection fires a dud. Scotto is another that could impact if pace collapse ensues.

SEVENTH: Writer's Regret tallied swift late-pace and final numbers when winning last; takes another. Graywing owns speed and adds blinkers; big-time, front-end threat. Mason Mania should pack amplified wallop with cutback to sprint. Market Alert drops after hard-fought win in last; damaged goods?

EIGHTH: Hair On Fire is fresh and makes first start with maiden-claiming tag; weakness of field helps. Solo Tonight could be ideally suited to 7-furlong trip. Seba M gets the meds and drops; worth long look. Diannesretiring was an improved third in last; headed in right direction.
