Best Value: BUST ANOTHER (1)

FIRST: Bust Another was a deceptively-strong fifth in debut; call based on price potential. High Noon Cocktail gets favorable cutback after front-running third in last. Carysfort Reef was a strong second in last; right in the thick of this.

SECOND: Here Comes Tommy tallied breakthrough final figure when winning last; more to give. Send It In consistently delivers strong efforts; dangerous. Bellamy Way is rested and training with a purpose.

THIRD: Invisible Crown was a willing second in last and owns swift final fractions. King of Spades gets the meds and drops; very playable. Tap Smartly is speedy and could prove very tough on a soft lead.

FOURTH: Sourcesandmethods was a hard-charging second in last and owns faster back figures. April Color is riding a forward line on the numbers; price will be tempting. Swagner needed last and could improve at fat ticket.

FIFTH: King Kranz owns fast figures and returns to maiden ranks; paltry price. Clear the Mine was a clear-cut second in most recent dirt race. Adventist fired 5-furlong bullet this past Sunday; could be the goods.

SIXTH: Northern Tripp makes third start of form cycle after logging solid final fraction in last. Protection drops and owns fast back numbers; very interesting. Springers Point is fleet-footed and could capitalize on soft lead.

SEVENTH: Indiana Stones was a change-of-pace third in last; call based on price potential. Native George regressed in last after fast-figured win in prior; rebound threat. Saint Joseph owns fast figures on‘A’ game. Watch the Tie has never been off the board in six starts.

EIGHTH: Classic Point is 1-for-1 on Big A’s main track and logged three swift works for first start in 34 days. Room for Me should pack amplified kick with cutback to 6 furlongs. Princess Violet is fresh and owns fast figures; very dangerous.

NINTH: Junger gets class relief and makes third start of form cycle; rail draw seals the deal. Touch of Paradise should pack enhanced kick with slight cutback in distance. Street Fightin Man came up a touch short in the stretch last time; dangerous. River Knight’s speed gives him a puncher’s chance.
