8 Thicker Than Water(FTL) 120 Rosario x-x-x Dutrow, Jr. 8-1

Sawyers Trustylady logged three closely spaced works since speed and fade in debut; tighter today.

Merry Meadow also displayed good early foot when outrunning her odds in same race as top two; must consider.

7 Read The Personals(L) 120 Lopez 6-x-x Gullo 4-1

Uncaged Heart projects as the main speed on the rail with aggressive handling. Star Black could be the prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues. Read The Personals may not have cared for mud in debut; dangerous on dry land.

1a Lovely Dynaformer(L) 120 Velasquez 7-x-x Mott 15-1

Gustavia logged fast late pace fig when a tough-trip second in debut; more to come. High N Far owns sprinter's speed and could be ideally positioned in big field. Grand Mere is firing bullets for switch to sod; very interesting.

6

13 Bella Silver(L) 118 Ortiz 12-5-7 Ferraro 8-1

Clever Spirit makes peak start of form cycle and packs potent late kick on best. Yes It's Pink was a tough-trip second behind a runaway winner in last. Rapidize's speed gives her a puncher's chance.

13 Royal Suspicion(L) 118 Prado 2-1-6 Ryerson 5-1

16 Sky Music(L) 121 No Rider 3-3-7 Contessa 3-1

War Hoot gets class relief after tough-trip third in last. Deciphering Dreams fired 5-furlong bullet since last start and will be aided by return to Belmont turf. Versailles Road wheels back in a hurry after after failing as the fave on Wednesday; must consider.

1a Ea(L) 121 No Rider 1-1-3 Jacobson 3-1

Rustler Hustler uncorked a swift final fraction when running down the leader to win last at Monmouth; more to come. Voodoo Storm was pace and position compromised in last; very dangerous. Best Actor packs potent late kick on best. Strong Impact owns fast figs and was a change-of-pace winner in last.

10

15 Tizmas(L) 120 Rosario 4-2-2 Orseno 15-1

16 Hidden Vow(L) 120 Prado 2-3-6 Quick 8-1

Promised Destiny was victimized by soft fractions and outside post when better-than-it-looks fourth in first turf start; forward move predicted. Secret Shifters drilled 14 furlongs in the span of 12 days for return to turf for Rick Dutrow; all systems go. Moonstock compiled eye-catcing string of workouts for return from 93-day layup; big-time threat on best. Zajal regressed in last after fast-figured placing in prior; very dangerous on the rebound.
