Bunhead displayed improved speed in last after hard charging fifth in debut; set for best. Irishtocrat is training with a purpose for first start since December; very interesting. Lady Yellow Tail was a tough-trip third in debut; right in the thick of this.

6 Boys At Tosconova(L) 121 Dominguez 2-1-1 Dutrow, Jr 7-5

Alma d'Oro logged four tight works since being overmatched in last; added ground is key. Johannesburg Smile is fresh and training sharply; more than good enough on 'A' game. Boys At Tosconova always fires big efforts; logical. Beau Choix is firing bullets for switch to dirt; surprise package?

5

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $30,000.

1 Portend(L) 121 Alvarado 6-7-7 Reed 8-1

12 Proud Siren(L) 110 Ortiz 6-8-8 Arroyo 30-1

Also Eligible

13 Princess Malia(L) 119 Prado 1-7-7 Dutrow, Jr 2-1

Stay Composed was ineffective as the chaser last time but projects as the controlling speed today. My Donna Jean cuts back and could be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Rough Winter logged only with the course and trip in April; big-time threat on best.

16 Carpi Clements(L) 123 Lezcano 5-x-x Barbara 12-1

First Face gets class drop and surface switch and could be sitting on wakeup at fat ticket. Sweet Moon also drops and returns to dirt and could easily take this on best. Bridgetta is speedy and rested; dangerous. Loblolly Pine displayed improved speed in last; worth long look.

10 Senior Statesman(L) 119 Studart 8-x-x Quick 15-1

11 Northern Tripp(L) 119 Lezcano 5-x-x Ryerson 7-2

Sleepy Freud hails from streaking Linda Rice barn and should be primed and ready off the bench. Senior Statesman displayed sharp speed in debut and should be tighter with race under belt; very playable. Northern Tripp was tough-trip fifth in debut and hails from potent second-out stable; right in the thick of this.

8

13 Key Victory(L) 121 Napravnik 5-2-7 Hertler 12-1

Main Track Only

14 Rock Star Charlie(L) 117 Garcia 2-2-1 Rice 7-2

Barrel Of Love packs potent late kick on bes and is training consistently for comeback. Sam Hillic logged both wins on Belmont sod and compiled eye-catching work tab for first start since January. Hooligan's Delight is another that's notched both wins on Belmont grass; very playable. Power Blast is fresh and more than good enough on best.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $30,000.

1 All Class(L) 121 Nakatani 8-4-6 Englehart 12-1

13 Robert's Breach(L) 117 No Rider 7-1-2 Dutrow, Jr 5-2

14 Heavy Duty(L) 117 Alvarado 2-1-10 Zito 6-1

15 Shane Roars(L) 117 Napravnik 9-7-2 Galluscio 10-1

Shotinthefog tallied solid final fraction when making sustained run to land third last time; more to come. Logical Order is fleet-footed and should be aided by cutback to sprint. Alvito was a very game second on dirt in last and handles turf. What's The Record makes first start with restricted claiming tag; must consider.

10

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $33,000.

12 Laylaben(L) 121 Velasquez 1-4-10 Brown 20-1

Also Eligible

13 To the Point(L) 121 Dominguez 10-2-8 Donk 8-1

Glory In Motion took backward step in last after earning very fast late pace fig in prior; bouncs back in third start of form cycle. Rock Star Royalty could play out as the dominant speed in turf debut. G. A. Empress could impact if fractions get fast and furious. Tonigail is another that would be aided by front-end meltdown.
