8 Grand Rapport(L) 123 Velasquez 1-1-2 Kenneally 9-5

Main Track Only

6 Ridingwiththedevil(L) 123 Alvarado 2-4-2 Adsit 5-2

Galroyale consistently logs fast late pace figures. Miss Lech bested top selection by a half-length when second in last; very dangerous. Miadoro has worked four times since coming up empty in last; must consider.

9 Street Swagg(L) 112 Rodriguez 6-5-8 Lostritto 20-1

Stand Proud gets class relief and owns fast figs on 'A' game. Most Happy Fella was a determined winner at this level last time. Precious Metal can contend on best efforts.

10 Patrolikeachampion(L) 119 Velasquez 7-4-7 Lostritto 20-1

11 Police Camp(L) 119 Bravo 8-5-9 Sciacca 20-1

Bob and Jim is 0-for-23 but holds sharp current condition; now or never. Baskets logged three tight works since even third in last; forward move predicted. Sole Train took backward step in last after clear-cut placing in prior; rebound potential.

10 Attractive Ride(L) 121 Saez 4-1-1 Cannizzo 6-1

Piquant gets two level class drop and is training sharply for first start in 60 days. Italian Rules was a fast-figured winner in last and now makes first start since claimed; very dangerous. N.F.'s Destiny is a front-end threat on best and now makes first start for DAS/Jacobson.

7

Main Track Only

13 Rock Me Mama(L) 117 Rice 6-7-1 Metivier 6-1

Runway Ready is 1-for-1 at the 7-furlong distance. Gratitude was done in by hot pace last time; very playable. Orient Harbor would be aided by front-end meltdown; right in the thick of this.

8

8 Dawly(L) 120 Franco 1-4-7 Rodriguez 4-1

Dawly was a determined winner in last and owns swifter previous numbers; more to come. Easter Gift is training sharply and owns fast back figures. Bad Hombre was a fast-figured winner the last time he touched Belmont loam; don't ignore.

9

11 Cushion(L) 116 Velasquez 10-1-3 Clement 12-1

12 Annecdote(L) 123 Ortiz, Jr 1-10-3 Clement 5-2

Cushion has worked with a purpose since failing as the favorite in last at Spa; return to Belmont is key. Overheard packs a powerful late kick and has the benefit of the rail; very dangerous. La Tia is speedy and could prove very tough on a soft lead.

10

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

1 Piccolo Flats(L) 119 Lezcano 7-3-2 Gargan 10-1

10 Sakonnet Point(L) 123 Ortiz 4-5-2 Sheppard 6-1

11 Dreaming as Always(L) 119 Ortiz, Jr 3-x-x Clement 4-1

Gu Gu Beans wheels back in a hurry after late-running third on Oct. 1; more to give. Graceful Gal tallied swift final fraction when a clear-cut second as the favorite in last; big-time threat. Dixie Gem was pace and position compromised last time; worth long look at long price. Dreaming as Always was victimized by wide trip when third in debut; right in the thick of this.
