8 Roll Tide Roll(L) 120 Velazquez 2-2-1 Pletcher 3-1

Waco logged solid training slate for first start since December; win and a second in two starts at the Spa. Knuckle Curve was a fast-figured, front-end winner in last; dangerous. Delta Outlaw could be ideally positioned in the stalker's seat; don't ignore.

9 Trensita(L) 118 Hernandez 10-5-2 Matz 10-1

Trensita is fresh and owns swift late pace figures on best efforts. Strong Incentive owns sprinter's speed and will prove very tough on a soft lead. Vouch for Kitten has delivered solid efforts in both starts; must consider.

1 Requite(L) 119 Castellano 1-1-4 Weaver 5-1

7 Holy Boss(L) 121 Santana, Jr 1-1-1 Asmussen 5-2

Bluegrass Singer was done in by scorching splits last time; softer flow today. Barbados will be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Holy Boss is rested and delivers strong efforts with machine-like consistency; right in the thick of this.

14 Security Risk(L) 122 Velazquez 1-2-7 McGaughey III 7-2

1a Moonlight Bandit(L) 120 Leparoux 6-3-11 Casse 12-1

Gustnado owns field's swiftest late pace numbers; rates call if able to escape AE list. Johnson City Kid was pace and position compromised last time; very playable. Furyofthenorsemen is fleet-footed and could prove very tough on an unchallenged lead. Jack Tripp is speedy, adds blinkers and will be favorably positioned in big field; don't ignore.

7

16 Village Warrior(L) 120 No Rider 3-4-3 Pletcher 5-2

Grey Wizard logged five tight works since hard-charging score in last; needs scratches to draw off AE list. Sheldon should pack amplified late kick with cutback to shorter route. Macagone is speedy and riding a two-race winning streak; very dangerous. Fire Away topped a next-out winner when breaking maiden last time; don't dismiss.

6 Furlongs. The ALFRED G. VANDERBILT (Grade I). Handicap Stake. 3&up. Purse: $350,000.

1 Departing(L) 117 Rosario 1-3-7 Stall, Jr 20-1

7 Favorite Tale(L) 117 Ortiz, Jr 1-5-2 Preciado 5-1

Favorite Tale tallied rapid internal and final figs when a front-running winner at GP last time; ready for prime time. Viva Majorca notched career-best final fraction when winning at the distance in last at CD; worth long look at long price. Rock Fall has rattled off five straight victories since failing to fire in debut; for chalk lover's only.

9

1 Mile & 3 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). The BOWLING GREEN (Grade II). 4&up. Purse: $250,000.

8 Dramedy(L) 121 Rosario 4-1-4 Asmussen 10-1

9 Al Khali(L) 115 DeCarlo 5-5-5 Mott 20-1

Al Khali makes peak start of form cycle and fired half-mile bullet on Wednesday; recaptures best game. Dramedy came up short when returning from three-month absence last time; better conditioning today. Innovation Economy packs potent late punch and will be aided if pace meltdown ensues. War Dancer is rested and more than good enough on 'A' efforts.

10

1 Mile & 1 Furlong. The JIM DANDY (Grade II). 3yo. Purse: $600,000.

1 Frammento(L) 117 Lezcano 5-11-4 Zito 20-1

6 Tekton(L) 117 Cintron 2-1-5 Dutrow 10-1

7 Frosted(L) 123 Rosario 2-4-1 McLaughlin 2-1

Upstart, 2-for-2 at Saratoga, has trained strongly since Derby disaster; close call in contentious Jim Dandy. Texas Red fired eye-catching 5-furlong bullet since clear-cut second in Dwyer; very playable. Frosted is more than good enough on best efforts.

11

5 1/2 Furlongs. (Mellon Turf). Allowance. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $75,000.

2 Rico Capote(L) 124 Castellano 1-3-1 Englehart 8-1

14 Watergate(L) 118 Velazquez 3-9-1 Schosberg 15-1

15 Fit to Keep(L) 118 Cruz 2-5-4 Barker 20-1

Bajan Summer was victimized by wide journey when a two-move fourth in last. Rico Capote owns speed, razor-sharp form and loves to win; big-time player. Unrepenting is riding a forward line on the numbers and makes peak start of form cycle; worth long look. Dark Roast was a front-running second in last and fired 3-furlong bullet in the interim; right in the thick of this.
