1a Victoria Lynn(L) 121 Rosario 1-3-2 Rodriguez 3-1

Victoria Lynn won "live" race at Mth last out and should have more to give in third start of form cycle. Emily Allstar bested a pricier field last time and will be in the garden if pace meltdown ensues. Joonbi is 1-for-1 at Saratoga and makes first start since claimed by Repole/Pletcher; logical player.

10 Shea Darby 119 Alvarado x-x-x Albertrani 3-1

11 Sassy Expression 119 No Rider 7-x-x Dutrow 5-1

Watch Your Biz moves to turf after flashing improved speed in last start; timid call in juvenile turf puzzler. Hot Rendezvous fired two bullet drills on Spa sod; follow the money. Ariadna notched 5-furlong bullet on Saratoga grass when working in company with 'Rendezvous' on July 18; happy hunting.

7 Smart Believer(L1) 119 Dominguez x-x-x Dutrow, Jr 5-1

Greed And Fear drops into maiden claimer after fast-figured second in last. Smart Believer compiled eye-catching work tab for debut and attracted Dominguez; could be the goods. Mrs. Calabash gets blinkers/Lasix makeover for potent second-out stable; wakeup potential.

9 Blind Hope(L) 121 Lezcano 1-1-3 Servis 6-1

10 Off The Jak(L) 121 Rosario 2-2-3 Parboo 7-2

Blind Hope gets confident price hike after earning fast late pace fig when winning second straight last out; gets hat trick. Harbor Breeze fired two bullet works since game placing in last; very playable. Off The Jak is speedy and will be aided by cutback to 6 furlongs.

Also Eligible

9 Jocosity(L) 119 Velazquez 2-2-x Pletcher 2-1

10 Marshall Raylan(L1) 119 Bravo x-x-x Hobby 5-1

1a Unlikely Scenario(L1) 119 Maragh x-x-x Pompay 4-1

Sky Commander was victimized by poor start in debut and hails from profitable second-out stable. Jocosity has finished second in both starts; continues trend? Central Banker (sharp works) and Midnight Taboo (Repole/Pletcher) are newcomers that warrant tote and paddock scrutiny.

5 1/2 Furlongs. (Mellon Turf). Maiden Special Weight. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $60,000.

13 Milkyyourway(L1) 119 Napravnik x-x-x Schettino 6-1

14 Notesfromabroad(L) 119 No Rider 2-3-3 Rice 3-1

A.P. Hutchy was a strong second in last and should have more to give in second start since nine-month absence. Jitney falshed brief speed on Opening Day and should pack amplified wallop with cutback to sprint. It's Your Dime gets the meds after speedy placing in debut; very dangerous. Cape Cod Carol is improving with each start. On dirt:Notesfromabroad.

1 Mile. (Inner Turf). Maiden Claiming $65,000. 3yo. Purse: $50,000.

1 Suns Out Guns Out(L) 122 Alvarado 7-5-5 Romans 4-1

10 Vengeful Pride 115 Garcia 9-9-10 O'Brien 50-1

11 Wild Target(L) 122 Castellano 5-3-2 Kenneally 2-1

Current Time logged fast final fractions in last two starts and now makes first outing since claimed by potent Drawing Away/Jacobson tandem. Native Wave owns speed, fast figs and makes first start with maiden claiming tag; very dangerous. Zajal coughed up three-length lead in the lane when second in last; must consider. Barrymore was second in both starts; logical.

8

1 Mile & 5 Furlongs. (Mellon Turf). The JOHN'S CALL. 3&up. Purse: $100,000.

1 Tahoe Lake(L) 115 Castro 3-7-3 McPeek 9-5

5 Hailstone(L) 115 Rocco, Jr 5-4-2 Ribaudo 5-2

6 Inscrutable 115 Joyce 6-6-4 Foley 20-1

Hailstone logged four tightly grouped works since racing out of his element on dirt in Brooklyn Handicap; return to turf is key. Harrods Creek has been facing Graded stakes fields and should move forward in second start since two-month layoff; dangerous. Ballet Boy has been racing over the hurdles since arriving stateside in '09; surprise package?

7 It's Me Mom(L) 116 Martinez 1-5-1 Scace 7-2

8 Maple Forest(L) 117 Bravo 1-1-3 Pletcher 10-1

It's Me Mom is 11-for-18, owns bullet-like speed and logged impressive work tab for Spa debut. Roman Treasure won last and should have more to give in second start since seven-month absence. C C's Pal owns stalker's style and could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues.

1 Mile. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $38,000.

15 Roman Renegade(L) 121 Velasquez 2-6-3 Levine 4-1

16 Evan's Rocket(L) 121 No Rider 4-5-2 Jerkens 6-1

Ultimate Class gets class relief and makes peak start of form cycle; main speed. Aptphilly logged fast late pace number when a game second in most recent turf race; worth long look. Glory In Motion has finished second in three of last four outings; be no surprise. Who Is Lady tallied career-best number on Spa sod last summer; right in the thick of this.
