Prissy tallied swift late pace number when a hard charging fourth in debut; sharp recent works seal the deal. Praise Band bested top selection by a half-length when third on Keenelad sod and also is training strongly. Evening Garden improved on the numbers when moved to grass last out; don't ignore.

8 Market Princess(L) 117 Lezcano 6-1-3 Mott 6-1

Brown Eyed Nance drops and returns to dirt; takes this on best. Centrique exits game placing in last at FL; dangerous. Aivazovsky is another that was strong second in most recent; right in the thick of this.

7 Peeds in a Pod(L) 120 Castellano 2-5-x Salzman, Jr 3-1

Peeds in a Pod made four-wide move when a clear-cut second in last; more to give. Bern Identity was fast-figured second in debut; could easily take this. Parnelli debuts for McLaughlin and attracts Dominguez; could be the goods.

5

8 Harry Consolidator(L) 112 Canchari 8-4-5 Shivmangal 30-1

9 Something Spunky(L1) 116 Coa 5-x-x Quick 30-1

Rock N Glamour gets class relief after pop and stop in debut on Kentucky Derby undercard; moves forward. Scrap Dragon delivered two subpar efforts after a pair of fast-figured seconds in prior two starts; dangerous. Jade Glory Again was a willing second when favored in last; logical threat.

1a Victory for V L Ts(L) 121 No Rider 3-2-1 Rice 6-1

Ballistic Sue projects as the speed of the speed in first grass start. Sounds of the City makes peak start of form cycle and should pack amplified kick with cutback to 6 furlongs. Christina d'Oro was more than a length in front of second selection after slow start last time; big-time player.

13 Maybe's Master(L) 118 Velasquez 4-5-7 Trombetta 6-1

Dangerous Lad fired crisp half-mile drill since last start and is from a dam that's produced two turf winners. Vee One Rotate could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues. Selection Sunday has logged fast figs in all three starts; very dangerous.

8 Grunge Girl(L) 121 Smith 1-11-3 Ortiz 30-1

Sing Like A Bird fired two swift works since fast-figured maiden score on muddy strip; repeats on dry land. Hot Splash notched solid number when an ultra-game second in NY-bred stake last time; could easily take this. Evan's Rocket is fresh and training with a purpose; right in the thick of this on 'A' game.

16 Decorated Court(L) 121 No Rider 5-5-6 Jones 20-1

Who Is Lady fell victim to hot pace in last but could capitalize on softer flow in big field. My Perfect Light packs potent late kick on best; very playable. Tiger Girl gets confident class hike after winning in April; must consider. Perfect Embrace is fleet-footed and owns competitive numbers on best; worth a look.
