1a Won Great Classic(L) 121 Castellano 6-1-2 Brown 7-2

Chernobyl's Hero made wide rally into hot final fraction last time; best price potential of the contenders. Compliance Officer owns fast figures and has won two straight; could easily take this. Strong Impact could be aided by today's shorter trip.

1 One Lovely Lady(L1) 119 Rodriguez x-x-x Quiles 20-1

1a My Viva Loca 119 Espinoza 10-x-x Quiles 20-1

9 Ducky McLean(L1) 119 Velasquez x-x-x Rice 4-1

Can She Run fired two 5-furlong bullets for debut; best guess. Mayville displayed late interest after slow getaway in first start; consider. I'd Lie displayed improved speed in last; that's the truth.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Claiming $15,000. Purse: $20,000.

1 Rizzi's Comet(L) 116 Ortiz, Jr 5-9-7 DiSanto 8-1

7 Tackle(L) 117 Dominguez 3-4-5 Rice 3-1

8 War Ballad(L) 121 Albarado 9-7-12 Pucek 8-1

Starlantic drops, goes turf to dirt and would be aided by pace meltdown. D' Bulldog earned good numbers when winning first start in four months; dangerous. Rizzi's Comet packs potent late kick on best efforts; price will be tempting.

7 Raconteur(L1) 119 Velazquez x-x-x Pletcher 2-1

Vexor was a clear-cut second behind a much-the-best winner in debut; sharp series of works seals the deal. Elusive Story was done in by fast fractions last time; dangerous. Raconteur makes first start for Repole/Pletcher; need more?

Main Track Only

11 She Be Classy(L) 123 Velazquez 11-1-1 Motion 5-2

Celtic Cross was a determined winner in last at Delaware and could relish today's marathon trip. Snow Top Mountain consistently logs fast figures; big-time player. Senada tallied swift final fraction when a hard charging second in last; right in the thick of this.

9 Fortheloveof Anna(L) 117 Dominguez 4-4-4 Rodriguez 7-2

Need An Angel logged swift final fraction when winning last at Churchill Downs and has trained sharply over Spa surface. Carmella Cee was a front-running winner in last two starts; potential main speed once again. Major Molly is also fleet-footed and could help set table for top selection.

14 Ruffino(L) 121 No Rider 3-1-4 Bond 4-1

Ducduc closed into sizzling final fraction when just missing fourth straight victory last time; call in contentious heat. Joshua Reynolds, was also seeking fourth in a row last out, and owns very fast late pace figures; big-time threat. El Crespo could easily impact at fat ticket on 'A' game.

16 This Hard Land(L) 119 Lezcano 2-3-10 Ubillo 7-2

Freud's Debut logged three tightly grouped works since compromised by wide trip in last; close call in wide-open nightcap. Writethatdown was fast-figured third in last and should be nearing peak in fourth start eight-month absence. What's The Record hails from high-percentage stable and could be aided by rail and today's longer trip. Cincinnati Kid was rough-trip fourth in last and should move forward in second start since eight-month layoff.
