1a Willy Beamin(L) 116 Luzzi 1-9-5 Dutrow, Jr 5-2

Camp Topridge tallied solid late pace figure when a hard-charging sixth in last; more to give in second start since two-month absence. Atitlan could play out as the controlling speed with return to turf. Mr. Vantastic wheels back in a hurry after being pace compromised in Saturday's opener.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $30,000-$25,000. Purse: $45,000.

8 Sweet Moonbeam(L) 117 Napravnik 3-2-1 Serey 12-1

9 Super Slash 121 Cohen 8-2-6 Klesaris 4-1

Emily Allstar owns late running style that should be well served in field with ample speed. Downhill Joey is fleet-footed and could prove very tough if able to shake clear from other front-runners. Sweet Moonbeam is also quick from the gate and must be respected on best.

1 1/8 Mile. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $75,000.

1 Vacationing(L) 118 Velazquez 5-3-8 McGaughey III 3-1

3 Thisizsparta(L) 118 Castellano 2-2-5 Jerkens 4-1

10 Candy Dance(L) 123 Velasquez 2-6-2 Cesare 20-1

Main Track Only

1x Party of Interest(L) 118 Velazquez 3-3-2 McGaughey III 3-1

Prissy notched very swift final fraction when displaying good late kick in debut; more to come. Thisizsparta has finished second in 3-of-4 starts; continues trend? Abaco is fresh and owns fast figs; big-time player.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Allowance Optional Claiming. NY Bred. Purse: $59,000.

1 Dyna Vision(L) 118 Cohen 1-2-7 Levine 7-2

2 Mon Rose(L) 111 Camacho, Jr 4-4-1 Jerkens 15-1

3 Bailzee(L) 121 Espinoza 5-2-2 Kelly 8-1

4 Sacred Success(L) 116 Dominguez 2-1-1 Dutrow, Jr 4-5

5 Myrtle's Gray(L) 121 Maragh 5-8-1 Duggan 10-1

6 Easy Ending(L) 116 Ortiz 2-1-9 Rodriguez 6-1

7 Queen's Harbor(L) 121 Studart 6-7-8 Ronen 50-1

Easy Ending returns to distance of both lifetime wins and could play out as the main speed with aggressive ride. Sacred Success consistently logs field's fastest final figs; could easily take this. Myrtle's Gray is training with a purpose for first start since October; more than good enough on 'A' game.

5

1 1/16 Mile. Allowance. 3&up. Purse: $77,000.

1 E. H. Indy(L) 121 Maragh 3-2-2 Penna, Jr 3-1

3 Nile Runner(L) 116 Nakatani 1-4-x Zito 12-1

4 Unbridled Kimanchi(L) 121 Castellano 4-4-7 Englehart 8-1

5 Won Fast Bullet(L) 121 Velasquez 5-3-4 Dutrow, Jr 8-1

6 Cosmic King(L) 121 Leparoux 4-2-2 Romans 6-1

7 Adirondack Express(L) 121 Dominguez 4-3-5 Dutrow, Jr 10-1

8 Majestic Hope(L) 121 Napravnik 5-1-3 Brown 20-1

Cosmic King is 1-for-1 at Belmont Park and notched rapid late pace number when fourth in last; moves forward. E. H. Indy is rested and packs potent stretch kick on best; very playable. Ez Effort logged swift numbers when besting a next-out winner by eight lengths last time; could easily take another.

6

1 1/8 Mile. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $77,000.

1 Reserve Currency(L) 118 Garcia 1-4-7 Mott 3-1

2 Fizzano(L) 121 Dominguez 1-1-2 Bond 6-1

3 Bombaguia(L) 121 Nakatani 6-3-8 Kimmel 20-1

4 So Scott(L) 121 Castellano 1-1-2 Hushion 10-1

5 Imagining(L) 121 Velazquez 2-5-1 McGaughey III 2-1

6 Writingonthewall(L) 121 Maragh 6-3-1 Stoklosa 10-1

7 Alburj 121 Espinoza 7-1-2 Elliot 20-1

8 Veiled Prophet(L) 121 Garcia 4-4-6 Ortiz 20-1

9 Midnite Silver(L) 121 Cohen 2-4-1 Jacobson 12-1

10 Cinnamon Beach(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 3-6-1 Romans 20-1

11 Westside Corral(L) 121 Lezcano 1-2-3 Clement 6-1

Main Track Only

12 El Martillo(L) 121 Cohen 2-1-1 Englehart 5-1

13 Tom Cat Allie(L) 121 Napravnik 3-3-2 Brown 8-1

14 Settle for Medal(L) 121 Luzzi 1-1-8 Schosberg 10-1

Writingonthewall makes peak start of form cycle and projects as the controlling front-runner. So Scott is riding a two-race winning streak and should transfer razor-sharp form to turf; very dangerous. Westside Corral was a winner after similar layoff last spring; right in the thick of this.

7

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). Starter Optional Claiming. 3yo. Purse: $60,000.

1 Hear The Word(L) 118 Napravnik 4-3-1 Higgins 6-1

2 Vee One Rotate(L) 118 Leparoux 2-5-5 McPeek 4-1

3 Back Away(L) 120 Lezcano 4-1-1 Ryan 12-1

4 Rover(L) 113 Hernandez 6-1-x Terranova,II 10-1

5 Selection Sunday(L) 118 Dominguez 3-1-x Goldberg 9-5

6 Get Right(L) 120 Castellano 1-4-3 Contessa 8-1

8 Maybe's Master(L) 118 Velasquez 5-7-1 Trombetta 12-1

9 Choral Society(L) 120 Castro 1-5-2 Ryan 10-1

Main Track Only

10 Da Vinci(L) 118 Dominguez 2-1-6 Asmussen 5-2

11 Photon(L) 118 Luzzi 1-2-2 Dutrow, Jr 4-1

12 Robert's Breach(L) 118 Castellano 1-2-x Dutrow, Jr 3-1

Get Right capitalized on soft fractions when a wire-to-wire winner in last and tallied career best number on Belmont sod last fall. Hear The Word is improving with each start and wheels back in a hurry after even fourth last week; very dangerous. Vee One Rotate was a clear-cut second as the fave in last at Keeneland.

8

6 Furlongs. The DIABLO. 3&up. Purse: $85,000.

1 This Ones For Phil(L) 121 Dominguez 2-1-1 Dutrow, Jr 7-2

2 Que Posse(L) 121 Castro 1-1-4 McLaughlin 12-1

3 Comedero(L) 123 Castellano 6-1-2 Stidham 15-1

4 Travelin Man(L) 123 Velazquez 1-1-7 Pletcher 2-1

5 Flat Bold(L) 123 Napravnik 1-4-1 Rodriguez 5-1

6 Jersey Town(L) 121 Prado 2-6-3 Tagg 5-2

7 Royal Currier(L) 121 Maragh 1-5-3 Farro 8-1

This Ones For Phil is speedy, rested and hails from Rick Dutrow barn; rates call in contentious overnight stakes. Travelin Man has won two straight and could be sitting in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues. Jersey Town owns fast figs on best efforts.

9

7 Furlongs. 3&up. Maiden Claiming $20,000. NY Bred. Purse: $28,000.

1 Ecstatic Cat(L) 124 Studart 10-12-4 Serey 4-1

2 Cameron Canyon(L) 118 Velasquez 7-3-7 Galluscio 12-1

3 Daybeforethederby(L1) 119 Camacho, Jr x-x-x Scott 20-1

4 Ali's Winner(L) 118 Cohen 5-3-5 Schwartz 10-1

5 Ommadon's Reign(L) 124 Ortiz, Jr 6-3-6 Campo, Jr 20-1

6 Warrior From Above(L) 124 Husbands 3-2-5 Ubillo 8-1

7 Cybertron(L) 118 Lezcano 6-7-4 Serpe 8-5

8 Tycoon Cat(L) 117 Ortiz 2-8-6 Arroyo 7-2

9 There Goes Vinny(L) 111 Garcia 7-5-7 Rodriguez 10-1

Cybertron is riding a forward line on the numbers and now makes peak start of form cycle. Ecstatic Cat makes quick return, adds blinkers and owns fast back figs. Warrior From Above owns stalker's style and would be aided by hot fractions. Tycoon Cat was second to a runaway winner last time; must consider.
