8 Tacobella 119 Franco 5-x-x LeCesse 12-1

9 My Pal of Pals(L) 120 Davis 6-7-5 Sciacca 30-1

Special Selection makes quick return and is riding a forward line on the numbers. Loveisheartandsoul overcame traffic to win first start on Spa sod; big-time threat. Rangey is fleet-footed and could prove very tough on an unchallenged lead.

6 Courageous Julie(L) 119 Saez 6-1-3 Lukas 6-1

9 Spark to Ignite(L) 119 Rocco, Jr 10-7-10 O'Brien 20-1

Tapidor tallied steadily improving final fractions last year and is training sharply for return. Vischer Ferry is speedy and makes peak start of form cycle; very dangerous. Latigo Trail also is fleet-footed and was second to a repeat winner in last; right in the thick of this.

7 Sol the Freud(L) 118 Velazquez 1-5-10 Cannizzo 3-1

Night Maneuver drops after clear-cut placing behind a dominant winner in last. Chilton was freshened after winning three straight this past spring; worth long look. Half Nelson is rested and can be effective from on or off the pace; dangerous.

7

2 De Facto(L) 118 Lanerie 3-2-6 Lukas 6-1

1a Aslan(L,MTO) 118 Alvarado 2-3-4 Albertrani 5-1

De Facto projects as the controlling speed on the hedge with proper ride. Northeast Bound owns fast late pace and final figures; dangerous. Spoiler Alert was pace compromised in last and fired half-mile bullet at Fair Hill in the interim.

8

1 Mile & 1 Furlong. (Inner Turf). Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $93,000.

7 Stormin Elle(L) 122 Garcia 1-5-3 Catalano 8-1

8 Pagan Priestess(L) 122 Luzzi 1-5-3 Bailes 15-1

Maximova made sustained rally into hot final fraction last time and should have more to give in second start since two-month absence. Stormin Ellie was a clear-cut winner in last at AP and notched crisp 5-furlong work in the interim. Mariel N Kathy is a front-end threat on 'A' game.

7 Amberjack(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 3-2-1 Hushion 8-1

8 West Hills Giant(L) 122 Prado 2-8-4 Terranova,II 15-1

Big Business should pack enahnced late kick with cutback to sprint. Moonlight Song could play out as the speed of the speed with aggressive ride. Brigand also is quick from the gate and is training sharply for first start in 272 days.

Barbara's Smile logged three tight works since claimed last month and now returns to preferred footing. Malibu Queen gets class relief and added ground; big-time player. My Four Rewards displayed improved speed last time; worth long look. Morning Star owns swift numbers and must be factored into the mix if able to escape AE list.
