Wild Kay is 2-for-2 at Belmont Park and now gets class relief after speed and fade last time. Taylor Jagger is fresh and packs solid stretch kick on best efforts. Inaflash fired half-mile bullet for first start since May; must respect. Allie Sweet owns speed and should be aided by cutback to sprint.

Rufus Ruth is 0-for-13 but owns field's fastest final fractions; demand fair price. Magsamelia looms the dominant speed in turf debut; very playable. Acrostic also is fleet-footed and should offer generous odds; worth long look. Stay in Front makes first start for Rudy Rodriguez; must be factored into the mix.

7 West Hills Giant(L) 117 Prado 3-2-8 Terranova,II 15-1

9 Breach of Duty(L1) 120 Castellano x-x-x Brown 4-1

Nejma made forward move on the numbers last time and is bred to handle switch to sod. Doukas lost a head bob for top honors when second at 35-1 in debut; very playable. Breach of Duty makes first start for Chad Brown after noticeably picking up the tempo in final two workouts; could be the goods.

Quiet Ruler notched improved late pace figure when winning last and compiled three tight works in the interim; onward and upward. Crafty Dreamer logged three stamina-building workouts for first start in 56 days; very playable. Coolusive, another that's training strongly, is more than good enough on 'A' game.

Main Track Only

13 Sandra(L1) 120 Franco x-x-x Bush 6-1

Bad Girl Phase was victimized by hard bump at the break in debut; deserves another chance at fat odds. Loon River bested top selection by nearly eight lengths when an ultra-game second last time; could easily take this. Freudie Anne owns turf breeding and compiled sneaky-good work slate. Madison Blues is from a dam that's produced two grass winners; must consider.
