Voided Contract is training with a purpose for first start in 50 days; dangerous. Causeway Cutie drops, cuts back to sprint and could impact at fat ticket.

Combat Diver wheels back in a hurry after clear-cut score on New Year’s Day. Puppy Manners gets class relief failing to impact in last; fast back numbers.

Purse: $59,000.1Shotgun Love(L)121Gryder2-1-3Schettino5-22Literata(L)119Velasquez8-5-2Jacobson3-13Lady Luciano(L)119Carmouche2-3-5Toscano, Jr6-14Uncle Southern(L)118Cancel7-5-8Contessa8-15Take Issue(L)119Ortiz, Jr4-5-3Asmussen8-5Literata compiled tight work tab since being DQ’d from top honors on Oct. 18; primed and ready. Lady Luciano was a fast-figured second in last and logged all three wins on inner track; very playable. Shotgun Love consistently delivers strong efforts right in the thick of this.

Purse: $31,000.1So Cruel(L)116Hernandez5-9-5Brown4-12Hollaback(L)121Camacho, Jr5-4-8Iorio, Jr20-13Flataway(L)121Franco3-6-xPletcher3-14Sheyn Vi Di Levone(L)121DeCarlo2-9-10Dilger5-25Punch It(L)121Davis10-7-11Quartarolo30-16You Lucky Dog(L)121Gryder5-11-5Contessa8-17First Showing(L)121Lopez4-6-xHennig6-18Roaring Vixen(L)121Davis3-3-5Turner, Jr12-19Mary‘s Legacy(L)121Rodriguez4-4-5Englehart15-110Misses Knight(L1)121Samuelx-x-xChatterpaul30-1Also Eligible11Fly Ash(L)121Carmouche7-10-xReynolds6-1Fly Ash drops, adds blinkers and could be sitting on wake-up in weak field. So Cruel also gets class relief and is riding a forward line on the numbers; price wil be tempting. Sheyn Vi Di Levone makes peak start of form cycle after clear-cut second in last; logical.

51 1⁄16 Mile. Claiming $20,000. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $40,000.1Natalie Victoria(L)118Velasquez5-4-2Jacobson5-22Just Got Out(L)120Ortiz5-5-1Englehart4-13Jane Peterson(L)118Alvarado5-6-12Barbara12-14Get Gorgeous(L)113Cancel4-7-5Donk20-15Seven Dreams(L)118Ortiz, Jr9-4-1Nevin5-16Pushme Pullyou(L)120Franco3-5-2Orseno8-17Lotsa Noodles(L)120Rice2-1-4Jacobson8-18Amulay(L)118Arroyo1-5-6Levine7-2Amulay gets confident price hike after determined win in last; pairs up. Natalie Victoria is speedy and drops two class levels; more than good enough on ‘A’ game. Just Got Out was an even fifth in last; improvement expected.

61 Mile. Claiming $14,000. 4&up. Purse: $27,000.

Chase Lane logged swift pace and final figures when a game second in last; very dangerous. Successful Brothers drops, makes peak start of form cycle and owns swift back numbers; right in the thick of this.

76 Furlongs. Claiming $32,000. 3yo. Purse: $50,000.

The Great Whiteway makes first start for Steve Klesaris after dominant win in last at Prx; very playable. Legend Keeper compiled eye-catching work tab for first start since October; must consider.

81 1⁄16 Mile. Allowance. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $67,000.1Rachel‘s Temper(L)121Luzzi3-2-10Cannizzo10-12Milaya(L)116Cancel6-8-1Dilger12-13Defoe Street(L)121DeCarlo1-6-5DiPrima30-14Theresas Candyrose(L)121Alvarado2-1-1Barbara8-15Jules N Rome(L)123Carmouche2-7-1Gargan6-16High Ridge Road(L)123Ortiz, Jr2-1-3Brown8-57Kathy‘s Humor(L)123Gryder4-1-6Violette, Jr6-18Wickedly Smart(L1)123Franco1-2-4Noseda7-29Flick of an Eye(L)123Saez4-1-6Gargan20-1Defoe Street was a confident winner the first time she touched the inner track; more to come. Rachel’s Temper exits sprints and should be favorably positioned near the front; dangerous. Theresas Candyrose delivers strong efforts with machine-like consistency; must be factored into the mix. Flick of an Eye is fresh and hails from Danny Gargan barn; don’t ignore.

Paw Annie gets class relief after even fifth in last; price will be generous. Foxy Posse owns speed, adds blinkers and makes first start with maiden-claiming tag; very playable. Bubbe Zena should be aided by cutback to sprint; dangerous. Yourcreditisgood regressed in last after fast-figured placing in prior; right in the thick of this.
