Brooklyn Legend fired eye-catching half-mile bullet for first start in more than a year; primed and ready. Revere is from a dam that's produced two turf winners; very playable. Rock N Glamour's speed must be respected.

8 The Snickers Kid(L) 115 Alvarado 5-1-2 Rodriguez 12-1

King Kreesa is 3-for-4 on grass and logged fast late pace fig when taking most recent. Sportswriter owns sprinter's speed and could prove very tough on an unchallenged lead. Western Tryst was second to top selection on June 3; developing and dangerous.

6 Furlongs. Claiming $35,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $41,000.

7 She's Gosphel(L) 117 Dominguez 5-5-1 Jacobson 8-1

8 Union Victory(L) 119 Rosario 1-1-6 Levine 5-2

Malibu Holiday exits routes and should pack intensified late wallop with turnback to sprint; 3-furlong bullet on Aug. 3 is the clincher. Union Victory owns speed and fast figures; could easily take this. She's Gosphel returns to preferred footing for potent turf-to-dirt barn; very interesting.

1 Alarmed Ndangerous(L) 119 Velasquez 2-5-3 Rice 7-2

10 Frisky Cat(L) 119 Garcia 6-6-2 Kelly 15-1

Also Eligible

11 Nelson Avenue(L) 123 Alvarado 4-4-9 Quartarolo 15-1

Why Not Whiskey tallied swift final fraction when making sustained rally to land third in turf debut; more to come. Alarmed Ndangerous bested top selection by a half-length when altering course in stretch last time; big-time danger. Bake Shop owns running style that could be suited by switch to sod.

6 My Miss Aurelia(L) 122 Leparoux 1-1-1 Asmussen 2-5

7 Xunlei(L) 120 Maragh 5-1-4 Romans 15-1

Delightful Quality has been effective from on or off the pace in both starts; call based on price potential. My Miss Aurelia is 4-for-4 and owns fast figs; obviously can take this. Srumdiddlyumptious could play out as the main speed with top-notch speed rider aboard.

16 B Shanny(L) 117 Dominguez 2-1-2 Hushion 8-5

Cincinnati Kid logged only win on Spa grass and packs potent late kick on best. Hysterical Cat exits front-running wins on Poly in last two and could play out as the main speed once again. Toy Cannon was a visually impressive winner the first time he touched turf; right in the thick of this.

10

11/16 Mile. (Mellon Turf). Maiden Claiming $25,000. 3&up. Purse: $38,000.

1 Star Walk(L) 123 Ortiz, Jr 5-5-7 Sciacca 20-1

10 Four Reds(L1) 119 Maragh x-x-x Contessa 12-1

Main Track Only

11 Know This 119 No Rider x-x-x Albertrani 7-2

12 Rudyard Reward(L) 119 No Rider 8-9-5 Antonucci 20-1

Griffin Rock is 0-for-23 but logs fast late pace figures and should offer generous price. The Kid N Me was pace and position compromised in last and has trained sharply in the interim; very playable. Hidden Vow exits sprints and may prove very tough with unchallenged lead. Santonio d'Oro drops two price levels; don't ignore.
