9 King Rush(L) 116 Rivera 7-4-9 DeMola 8-1

Castle Harbour was two-move fourth at 90-1 in last and will offer fat ticket in cheap opener. Marina Market was compromised by rough start in last and owns fast figures on 'A' game. Surfing Ian drops after poor efforts, but owns fast back figures; mixed message.

1 Doodleman(L1) 116 Lopez x-x-x Ryerson 12-1

6 Percussion(L) 111 Pedroza 3-11-x Dunham 2-1

7 Not Now Ashley(L1) 116 Da Silva 4-x-x Levine 6-1

Percussion earned swift pace figure in last at CD and logged strong work tab for local debut; rates close call based on price potential. Que Posse has tallied rapid late pace and final figures in all three starts; could easily take this. Inspeightofmyself debut for potent first-out stable; stay tuned to the tote.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. Claiming $15,000. 4&up. Purse: $21,000.

1 Warrant Ofc. Cook(L) 120 Santiago 1-2-4 Dutrow, Jr 7-2

6 Pressure Point(L) 118 Chavez 2-5-2 Grusmark 4-1

7 Bold Vindication(L) 118 Luzzi 6-6-7 Sciacca 15-1

Warrant Ofc. Cook wheels back in a hurry after clear-cut score on Presidents' Day; more to come. Seventh Star didn't care for the mud last time but owns fast figures on dry land; worth long look. Diablo's Fire logged front-running wins in last two starts at this level; big-time danger.

4

6 Furlongs. Allowance. 4&up. Purse: $44,000.

1 New Yawker(L) 118 Luzzi 3-3-4 Weaver 4-1

2 Eltish Star(L) 118 Espinoza 2-2-4 Ortiz 7-2

4 Sunrise Smarty(L) 118 Hill 3-4-2 Hushion 9-5

5 Overcommunication(L) 118 Cohen 3-2-4 Pletcher 2-1

New Yawker consistently logs fast final fractions and should offer playable price in small field. Eltish Star is another that packs potent last kick; dangerous. Sunrise Smarty could play out as the main speed with aggressive ride; must respect.

1 First Penny(L) 120 Espinoza 2-7-4 Martin 3-1

1a Kitty Kat Rockstar(L) 120 Hill 2-4-9 Martin 3-1

Flying Zee entry: First Penny earned improved pace figure when a game second in last and mate Kitty Kat Rockstar makes peak start of form cycle; potent pairing. Wachiwi exits tough-trip third in last; developing and dangerous. Karakorumknowitall bested Wachiwi by a nose last time and is improving with each start; right in the thick of this.

11 Devilish Due(L) 113 Maragh 4-1-3 Gullo 12-1

12 Five Aces(L) 118 Studart 2-4-1 Contessa 8-1

Zone Breaker employed rating tactics to win last and could receive ideal setup in big field that's jammed with speed. Mr. Hadif is another last-race winner that could be aided by probable pace dynamics. Barnie's Bullet regressed in last at Prx after pairing up fast-figured wins in prior two starts on inner strip; big-time rebound potential. Five Aces owns speed and fast figures but starts from tough post; demand value.

1 Pat's Meow(L) 120 Santiago 3-x-x Rodriguez 6-1

10 Jan Beth Jo(L) 120 Castro 2-x-x Ryerson 12-1

11 Hurricane Kitten(L1) 120 Luzzi 10-x-x Levine 10-1

Tapitude tallied deceptively fast final fraction when third in key race debut; rates close call in maiden dash that's jammed with swiftly working newcomers. Pat's Meow logged three tightly grouped workouts since chasing a tons-the-best winner in debut last month; improvement predicted. Good Habits was ultra-game second when 61-1 in debut; regresses today at short odds?

6 Furlongs. Claiming $7,500. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $16,000.

1 Cat Grace(L) 123 Rohena 6-10-8 Lotruglio 50-1

10 Bombilla 123 Jara 4-7-6 Pringle 30-1

11 Cherokee Gem(L) 123 Alvarado 2-6-5 Baker 7-2

Im A Mosaic Rocker is 4-for-4 on winterized surface but shows no listed works this month; must take the good with the bad. Cherokee Trick fired half-mile bullet for first start since August; dangerous if ready. Maid To Win should pack amplified kick with cutback to sprint; price will be tempting. Bombilla could land in exotics at fat ticket if pace gets hot and hectic.

9

1 Mile & 1 Furlong. The STYMIE. 3&up. Purse: $65,000.

1 Arson Squad(L) 123 Alvarado 3-3-1 Dutrow, Jr 9-5

4 Goombada Guska(L) 121 Valdivia, Jr 2-4-1 Volk 5-1

5 Masala(L) 117 Cohen 3-1-3 Jacobson 5-1

Remand logged three eye-catching 5-furlong works since game pace-pressing score last out; more to come. Goombada Guska is another that fired sharp 5-furlong drill since last race and packs a strong late kick on best; very playable. Arson Squad is a three-time winner at 9-furlong trip; right in the thick of this.

10

1 Mile. Claiming $7,500. 4&up. Purse: $18,000.

2 The Plot Thickens(L) 118 Rivera, Jr 9-7-9 Martin, Sr. 20-1

9 Pegasus Ena(L) 118 Cohen 4-2-2 Brown 3-1

10 Adirondack Warrior(L) 120 Da Silva 5-1-5 Ubillo 8-1

1a Next Day(L) 111 Amaro 5-8-6 Persaud 30-1

Parkinson Field tallied solid internal and final numbers when winning last and could give one more before the bounce. Nobody Like Mike was compromised by tough post in last after fast-figured winner in prior; very dangerous on the rebound. Miami Hammer drops and owns fast back figures; don't dismiss. Pegasus Ena could easily impact on 'A' game.
