She's Always Hot logged solid final fraction when second to wire-to-wire winner last time. Grunge Girl displayed improved speed in last; don't ignore. Ladywell Court must be factored into mix if able to escape AE list.

1a Brunelli(L) 117 Camacho, Jr 3-4-1 Bond 6-1

Didn't Take It returns to maiden ranks after fast-figured, front-running second in Tampa Bay stakes; could easily take it.

16 Feels Good(L) 122 Napravnik 2-7-1 Griffith 7-2

Castles Burning notched swift final fraction when drawing off to impressive maiden score last out; more to come. Born Flirt is speedy and drilled four times since wilting in last start; potential controlling front-runner. Proud Siren should pack intensified kick with cutback to 6 furlongs; price will be tempting.

16 Joy Rising(L) 118 Velasquez 10-8-x Rice 10-1

Barrel of Joy displayed incremental development as a juvenile and should be ideally positioned in the stalker's seat. Gianni makes turf debut for potent layoff stable. Rock N Cozy is rested and looms the dominant speed. Sweet Penny should be tighter in second start since four-month absence. Backwards in Heels compiled sneaky-good work slate.
