61/2 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $12,500. Purse: $25,000. Post -- 1 p.m.

6 D'princess(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 6-2-1 Rodriguez 2-1

7 Rock Show(L) 120 Jara 5-2-3 Parker 20-1

Colonel Juanita chased sizzling splits and faded on turf last time; return to dirt is key. Unrepented could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues. D'princess is speedy and owns fast figs but distance could be beyond her scope; handle with care at short ticket.

9 Gem(L1) 119 Castellano x-x-x Kenneally 6-1

Main Track Only

3 Play Unified 119 Franco x-x-x Weaver 4-1

Scatoosh owns experience edge and is bred to relish switch to sod. Miss Pac N Ship is from a dam that's thrown four turf winners. Fired Up Sensation debuts for Christophe Clement with go-to rider aboard; very playable.

7 Threeskills(L) 119 Rosario 7-x-x Asmussen 3-1

8 Bluegrass Prevails(L) 119 Trujillo 7-x-x Gullo 6-1

9 Linkappleyard(L) 119 Ortiz 6-x-x Nevin 7-2

Threeskills adds blinkers and should move forward in second start. Linkappleyard is another that should improve with race under belt. My Man Al gets the meds after speed and fade in debut; very dangerous.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Claiming $16,000. Purse: $32,000.

1 Excellent Royale 122 Saez 9-9-5 Weaver 6-1

2 Fit to Keep(L) 120 Arroyo 12-2-5 Barker 5-1

3 Who's Z Daddy(L) 122 Rodriguez 3-3-4 Jacobson 8-5

4 Limerick Lightning(L) 120 Franco 8-4-1 Bush 12-1

5 Unlock the Glory(L) 113 Cancel 7-9-1 Terranova 7-2

6 Royal Burgh(L) 118 Carmouche 7-8-12 Pletcher 6-1

7 Cosmo Storm(L) 120 Hernandez 7-5-5 Contessa 15-1

8 Tottie Royer(L) 124 Jara 9-4-1 Adel 30-1

Fit to Keep regressed in last after hard-charging placing in prior; rebounds. Who's Z Daddy consistently logs solid efforts; logical, short-priced player. Royal Burgh went backwards after determined score in debut in April of '14; finished product?

5

1 Stormy Rocit(L) 117 Cancel 2-10-1 Weaver 8-1

Main Track Only

10 Manhattan Mischief(L) 124 Arroyo 4-1-3 Klesaris 4-1

11 Blame Jim(L) 118 Velazquez 4-2-4 Pletcher 5-2

12 Doubledown Again(L) 122 Ortiz 2-4-4 Nevin 3-1

13 Be a Hero(L) 122 Ortiz, Jr 4-5-2 Rodriguez 5-1

Stormy Rocit is riding a forward line on the numbers and should have more to give in third start since two-month layoff. Rapid Dan was a fast-figured winner in last on all-weather strip at Pid and attracts Javier Castellano; very playable. Tripski is rested and would be aided by fast fractions; don't overlook.

6

11/8 Miles. 3&up. Starters Allowance. Purse: $55,000.

1 African Fighter(L) 119 Velazquez 2-12-4 Pletcher 5-1

6 Send It In(L) 119 Castellano 1-2-10 Pletcher 5-2

7 Quimet(L) 119 Sullivan 6-5-4 Zito 10-1

Quimet returns to dirt after being speed sharpened on turf last time; call based on price in compact field. African Fighter packs potent late kick and will be the prime beneficiary if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Total Joint was a fast-figured winner at Mth two starts back; must consider.

7

1 Mile. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Claiming $25,000. Purse: $50,000.

2 Bim Bam(L) 120 Leparoux 6-7-9 Moquett 12-1

13 Oliver Rush(L) 120 No Rider 7-10-1 Metivier 20-1

14 I'm Steppin' It Up(L) 120 Saez 6-1-2 Barbara 4-1

1x Playing a Joke(L) 120 Castellano 4-4-1 Maker 3-1

Depeche Chat gets class relief and owns swift late pace figures on best efforts. Lucky Kitten compiled tight work tab for first start since March; more than good enough on best. Put It Forward drops in first start since claimed; dangerous if not damaged goods.

8

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $93,000.

2 Milam(L) 120 Castellano 4-3-3 Kenneally 10-1

1 Frivolity(L) 120 Velasquez 2-5-2 Jacobson 6-1

3 Wavell Avenue(L) 124 Rosario 4-3-1 Brown 3-1

7 Irish Nuggets(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 1-1-5 Mason 6-1

1a Aireofdistinction(L) 120 Carmouche 8-2-4 Jacobson 6-1

Frivolity is training with a purpose for first start since May 24; primed and ready. Sweet Whiskey owns speed and fast figs; for chalk lovers only. Wavell Avenue logs swift numbers with machine-like consistency; dangerous.

9

15/8 Miles. (Mellon Turf). 3&up. THE JOHN'S CALL. Purse: $100,000.

1 Global Strike(L) 117 Castellano 3-2-2 Pletcher 9-5

5 Rum Tum Tugger(L) 117 Carmouche 1-2-2 Sheppard 15-1

6 Da Big Hoss(L) 119 Ortiz, Jr 1-1-2 Maker 4-1

7 Atherton 115 Velasquez 9-1-8 Voss 30-1

8 Manchurian High(L) 121 Saez 4-6-8 Kurtinecz 12-1

Sharp Omar tallied rapid late pace figure when winning last; pairs up at a playable price. Da Big Hoss consistently fires big efforts; must consider. Holiday Star is fresh and handles marathon distances; dangerous.

10

11/16 Miles. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $40,000. Purse: $45,000.

1 Starship Hostility(L) 113 Cancel 7-7-10 Iwinski 30-1

9 Violet Road(L) 124 Carmouche 3-3-2 Coffey 15-1

10 Lightning Rosie(L) 118 Alvarado 6-x-x Bush 15-1

11 Pointe Class(L) 118 Castellano 3-2-3 Pletcher 3-1

12 Kitten's Angel(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 3-8-6 Maker 5-1

Also Eligible

13 Mama's Red Hat(L) 124 Velasquez 2-6-3 Quiles 15-1

Arana exits dirt conditioner and packs strong late wallop on turf. Violet Road made strong, sustained rally when third at 20-1 last time; worth long look at long price once again. Pointe Class makes first start with maiden-claiming tag; logical, short-priced player. Summer Chant regressed in last after game placing in prior; bounce-back threat.
