10 Harbor Mist(L) 116 Prado 1-3-1 Serpe 4-1

11 Truth Will Tell(L) 121 Castro 1-2-3 Baker 3-1

Naples Bay logged six tightly grouped works for first start in 209 days; primed and ready. J C's Queen returns to preferred longer trip and has benefit of rail; price will be tempting. Julie's Love logged fast final fraction when winning stateside debut; could easily take another.

7 Z Vilna(L) 119 Velazquez 8-4-2 Pletcher 2-1

8 Horseshoe Lake(L) 119 Napravnik 6-3-6 Zito 8-1

Six Peaces failed as the fave in slop at GP last time but tallied solid late pace and final figs on dry land in debut; bounces back. Z Vilna makes first start with maiden claiming tag and owns fast numbers on 'A' game. Horseshoe Lake neved fired on sloppy strip last time; don't ignore.

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Special Weight. NY Bred. Purse: $60,000.

Main Track Only

14 Sugar Beach(L) 116 Garcia 3-5-3 Ubillo 4-1

Proud Dame was even fourth when making first start since five-month absence and has worked three times in the interim. Madame Johar (strong second in last) and Miss Dragon Lady (pace and position compromised in last) both must be considered if able top escape AE list. Hlao Roo gets rider upgrade and should offer fat price. First Face exits sprints and should be favorably positioned near the front; don't dismiss.

Main Track Only

10 Ventura Bar(L) 117 No Rider 3-4-2 Terracciano 4-1

Steel Bridge adds blinkers and compiled eye-catching work slate for first start in 56 days; call based on price potential. Voter has also trained strongly since last start. Bluember owns fast figs on 'A' game. El Corriente is fleet-footed and could prove tough on soft lead.

8 Salsa Kitty(L) 120 Maragh 1-x-x Orseno 15-1

1 Trinity Warrior(L) 114 Garcia 7-4-1 Ubillo 6-1

1a Warrior From Above(L) 114 Garcia 1-6-3 Ubillo 6-1

5 Dontbeshy I'll Buy(L) 114 Prado 3-1-2 Reed 12-1

6 She's Cheeky(L) 118 Velazquez 2-3-3 Eurton 3-1

Belle Of The Hall tallied fast pace figure when speed sharpened last time; rider upgrade and return to rating tactics are key. Nicole H owns fast figs but had no excuse when fourth as the fave in last at Prx. Kid Kate is training consistently for first start since October; dangerous if set for best.

10

1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Maiden Claiming $25,000.

Main Track Only

13 Bake Shop(L) 119 Napravnik 7-x-x Bush 4-1

Dreamalot is riding a forward line on the numbers, makes first start with maiden claiming tag and gets call if able to escape AE list. Not Today owns speed, gets class relief and logged two stamina building works for grass debut; very playable. Bundestag is fresh and owns solid turf numbers; right in the thick of this. Magic Middletown has failed as the favorite in last two outings; handle with care at short ticket.
