Fiddler's Diva is speedy and fired swift 5-furlong drill for first start in 46 days. She's Very Rare will be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Decorated Court is another that would be aided by pace meltdown.

9 Kissinginthedark(L) 118 Dominguez 3-3-6 Englehart 3-1

Kissinginthedark failed to get job done as the fave in last but gets one shot to make amends in weak field. Jillistina could play out as the dominant speed. Smarty Aya should pack amplified kick with cutback to sprint.

1a Al Andaleeb(L1) 118 Maragh 3-12-x Albertrani 5-2

Free As A Bird was fast-figured third in valuable race over the track last time; timid call in field that's jammed with newcomers. Book Review compiled an eye-catching work tab for first start in 135 days; dangerous. Dance Card fetched $750k as a 2-year-old; could be the goods.

Also Eligible

12 S. S. Stone(L) 127 No Rider 1-1-1 Zito 6-5

Close To The Vest could get early jump in big field and is a three-time winner on Belmont sod. Ziptronic wheels back in a hurry after determined score last Sunday; very dangerous. Midnite Silver delivers strong efforts with machine-like consistency; be no surprise. Exclusive Strike is 2-for-3 on Belmont grass; right in the thick of this.

Mela Dramatically was a no-excuse fourth when 60 cents on the dollar last time; short ticket once again. Eurokay By Me showed newfound speed in last; developing and dangerous.
