8 Sense of Reality(L1) 119 Castellano x-x-x Dutrow 6-1

Sawyers Trustylady owns win-early bloodlines on both sides of pedigree; best guess. Unabashed compiled eye-catching work slate for Pletcher; can it be that easy? Dixiluna gets the meds and should make forward move; don't ignore.

9 Dixie Babe(L) 122 Dominguez 2-x-x Brown 4-5

Race Palace is training with a purpose for first start since December and tallied swift final fractions in both turf starts. Chat Me Up was late-running third on turf two starts back; nearing peak in third start of form cycle. Channel the Green logged two, sharp 5-furlong works on Spa sod; very interesting.

7 Mystic City(L) 116 Velasquez 4-1-5 Ferraro 12-1

Gitchee Goomie owns field's fastest late pace and final figures. Hessonite was an easy winner in last after finishing half-length behind top selection in prior two outings; could easily close the gap. Elusive Rumour's speed gives her a puncher's chance.

10 Licentious Eyes(L) 121 Montalvo 5-4-7 Torelli 50-1

2b Victory for V L Ts(L) 121 Velasquez 4-3-2 Rice 6-1

2b She's Stones Sis(L1) 119 Rosario x-x-x Levine 6-1

Watch Your Biz displayed improved speed in last and gets the call if able to escape AE list. With Honorandgrace, a useful third in debut, is another that must be factored into mix if able to scratch in. Roses For Romney compiled tight work tab for debut; happy hunting.

13 Ibid(L) 117 No Rider 4-1-12 Rice 7-2

Akira overcame rough start when a game second in last; rates close call. Quiet Ending regressed in last after fast-figured win in prior; very dangerous on the rebound. Subtle will prove very tough on an unchallenged lead. Cozy App could impact if pace meltdown ensues; price will be tempting.

14 Destination Moon(L) 110 Garcia 5-10-7 Jerkens 8-1

Julep Tulip gets class relief after fast-figured third in last; more to give. Zero Yield made sustained late run when a strong second in last; very dangerous. Holiday Broad owns fast figs but takes suspicious price plunge; big-time player if all is well. Market Princess is right in the thick of this on 'A' game.
