Best value: SPICY GINGER (7)

FIRST: Redicean won last start by an otherworldly 54 lengths; call in jump race that should be a non-betting exhibition. Iranistan owns two wins over the Spa fences. French Light has hit the board in all three starts over Saratoga hurdles; next race, please.

SECOND: Backed by Gold broke maiden by an expanding 13 lengths last out; more to give. Evoking is training with a purpose for first start in 14 months; bad percentage play at short price. Holiday Jazz regressed in last after fast-figured fourth in prior; bounce-back threat.

THIRD: White Hot could secure unchallenged lead with hustling ride from the rail. Gracefully Wild has finished second in last three starts; comes up short again? Rent Control owns speed and could make life miserable for those who wager on top selection.

FOURTH: Sweet Franny Lu was done in by rough trip in last; call based on price. A Bit o'Irish Sass should be aided by turnback to mile. Out of Sight could be in the garden if pace meltdown ensues. Pure Bode was a game second in last; must consider.

FIFTH: Whatchamacall was an even third in debut; forward step predicted. Numero Seis broke from tough post when third in first start; dangerous. U Glow Girl noticeably picked up the tempo in final workout; follow the money.

SIXTH: Copper Town makes first start since claimed by streaking stable. Aristocratic is fleet-footed and can prove very tough on a soft lead. Prince James owns very fast back numbers; more than good enough on "A" game.

SEVENTH: Spicy Ginger moves to grass after useful sixth in debut; set for breakthrough. Hey There has been second best in last two starts; runner-up once again? Crowding Out fits the classic Chad Brown profile; be no surprise.

EIGHTH: Betsy Blue makes peak start of form cycle; turnback to 6 furlongs seals the deal. Honey Money could be ideally positioned in the stalker's seat if fractions get hot and hectic. Mischievous Diane owns two wins and two seconds from four starts; likely underlay.

NINTH: Dream Central was a determined winner in last; pairs up. Solib is speedy and could prove very tough on a soft lead. She's a Mia appears to prefer minor awards; you've been warned.

10TH: Rum 'n Tonic returns to turf and makes first start with maiden-claiming tag; weakness of field is selection's strength.
