Best bet: JSK LUCKY'S PUSHPA (7)

Best value: POSEIDON'S MIST (8)

FIRST: Can't Beat Me was properly given 57 days to recover after fast-figured win on Jan. 6; more to come. Printrack is speedy and has won five of last six; likely underlay. Big Engine packs big late kick on best efforts.

SECOND: Amy's Light tallied solid final fraction when breaking maiden last time; pairs up. Solo Shot is speedy and drops; big-time threat. Speight's Dance could be ideally positioned in the stalker's seat.

THIRD: Heard On Thestreet gets class drop after displaying improved speed in last; breakthrough predicted. Conniving looms the prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues. Have You Heard owns fast figures but has failed as the favorite in last two; you've been warned.

FOURTH: Disarmed regressed in last after fast-figured win in prior; rebounds. Saffa's Day is fresh and fires big efforts; dangerous. O'Conner Sunset would be aided by hot fractions.

FIFTH: Level Up ships in from Parx after firing crisp half-mile drill last week. Dudley Dickerson is 0-for-17 but owns solid numbers on best. Phantom Jewel drops back in with maidens after wide trip on sloppy track last time; very interesting.

SIXTH: Brown Suga Babe arrives from Charles Town after clear-cut win in last; fits with the locals at this level. Sohana delivers strong efforts in both starts; logical. Sweet Brown Sugar makes third start of form cycle; worth long look.

SEVENTH: Jsk Lucky's Pushpa fired half-mile bullet since much-the-best score at Parx on Jan. 30; takes another. Kara Para owns two wins and three seconds from last five starts; hard to ignore. Sail With the Wind was compromised by slow fractions last out; don't dismiss.

EIGHTH: Poseidon's Mist makes peak start of form cycle after displaying improved speed two starts back; forward move predicted. Lucky and Gorgeous drops and gets Lasix; very dangerous. Khali's Storm made premature middle move to the lead last time; cutback to 7 furlongs plays to strength. East Harbor should improve with race under his belt.
