Cotton Pickin displayed out of the blue speed in last and could be sitting on breakthrough with return to turf. Win for Kitten packs solid late kick and will be in the catbird seat if pace meltdown ensues. Runway Ready is fleet-footed and training sharply for first start in 48 days; dangerous.

7Sensational Slam(L)122Cohen8-8-1Quick10-1

Rigby is 3-for-5 at Belmont Park and makes first start since claimed by Rudy Rodriguez. Roman Invasion bested a next-out winner when a clear-cut victor for this price in last; big-time threat. Take Down Two makes peak start of form cycle for white-hot gary Contessa barn; right in the thick of this.

7Go Unbridled(L)120Alvarado4-4-3Jerkens5-2

Miss Valentine logs fast late pace figures on best efforts and fired 5-furlong bullet for first start since December. Clear Pasaj is speedy and will prove very tough on a soft lead. Go Unbridled gets class relief and packs powerful stretch wallop on 'A' game.


1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). Allowance. 3&up. Purse: $77,000.

10Gun Point(L)116Espinoza5-8-1Ryan30-1

Lead Singer was a determined winner the first time he touched the turf; more to come. Draw Too was a fast-figured winner on Belmont sod last fall and is working strongly for return. Arc Above tallied only career win on Belmont grass; very dangerous. Happy Fella makes third start of form cycle; price will be tempting.


1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf). Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $79,000.

1aClarinda(L)122No Rider3-3-1Clement12-1

2bFlash Forward(L)116No Rider8-1-4Schettino6-1

Floral Romance tallied swift final fraction when winning on GP sod in December; rates close based on price potential. Deanaallen'skitten was a fast-figured winner last time and logged five tight works in the interim; could easily take this. Zultanite was pace and trip compromised in last and Dave Donk barn is off to strong start at new meet; don't ignore.

13Taylor Jagger(L)106Franco8-5-xEsler6-1

Bundestag is 0-for-16 but owns field's fastest turf numbers; must take the good with the bad. Polaris Dream returns to turf and could be sitting on wakeup in third start of form cyle. I Captivate Myself displayed newfound speed in last; front-end threat. Fluent hails from the scorching Mike Maker barn; must consider.


6 Furlongs. Allowance Optional Claiming. 3yo. Purse: $72,000.

5Killin Me Smalls(L)118Alvarado4-3-1Asmussen15-1

Retreive gets favorable cutback to 6 furlongs after succumbing to sizzling splits in Bay Shore last time; main speed. Carried Interest logs fast figs with machine-like consistency but owns three seconds from four starts; continues trend? Lawn Man is firing bullets for first start since September; must respect.

10Federal Agent(L)118Castellano2-6-2Penna, Jr4-1

Main Track Only



Federal Agent was pace and trip compromised when a game second behind a repeat winner in last; bred to handle 10-furlong trip. Forever Thing logged three tight works since besting a next-out winner when second last time; very playable. Hardest Core is working sharply for first start with Lasix; very interesting. For the Ages has the benefit of the rail in big field; don't ignore.
