9 Privately Speaking(L) 122 Velazquez 1-6-3 Rice 3-1

9 Lakeside Sunset(L) 119 Castellano 1-2-3 Brown 5-2

Rumble Doll was a late-running second in last start and added furlong plays to strength. Fenwick Hall could play out as the speed of the speed with aggressive ride. Lakeside Sunset also is fleet-footed and is from a dam that's produced two turf winners.

8 Okay Momma(L) 119 Franco 8-x-x Contessa 12-1

Kitai displayed improved speed in last and could be primed for career-best effort in third start of form cycle. Sanctifica set sizzling splits and wilted late in debut; tighter and dangerous. Okay Momma trailed in debut on turf, but fired 3-furlong for surface switch; worth long look at long price.

13 She's Roman(L) 119 Maragh 8-5-5 Antonucci 20-1

14 Valatie Gal(L) 119 Cruz 9-10-11 Martin 30-1

Kitty Kat should pack enhanced kick with cutback to 7 furlongs. Aussie Prayer owns speed and is riding a forward line on the numbers. My Kinda Gal was even fourth in last and should improve in second start since two-month absence.

10 H Man(L) 117 Carmouche 5-2-4 Cannizzo 6-1

Ride a Cat is fleet-footed and training sharply for first start since March; ready to rumble. Little Popsie was a fast-figured winner in last; regresses today? Whale Rock has delivered strong efforts in both starts; right in the thick of this.

6 Gallery(L) 116 Lezcano 3-8-3 Dini 8-1

A Lot notched swift late pace figure when a hand-ridden winner in last; more to come. Nonna's Boy could play out as the controlling speed in turf debut; dangerous. Croninthebarbarian could impact if pace meltdown ensues.

1 Fit to Keep(L) 115 Cancel 4-6-3 Barker 20-1

7 Limerick Lightning(L) 120 Lezcano 4-1-7 Bush 10-1

8 Dominic's Smile(L) 120 Arroyo 1-3-2 Martin 3-1

Fit to Keep owns a running style that could be well suited to switch to sod; throw deep in weak nightcap. Prophet's Cat set pressured pace when a very determined third in last and has trained sharply in the interim; very playable. Well Lawyered returns to turf and owns speed and fast back numbers; very dangerous. Greeley Pack drops and makes peak start of form cycle; very interesting.
