Best Bet: MIAMI HAMMER (5); Best Value: ANNUAL APPEAL (8)1

6 Furlongs. Starters Allowance. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $22,000. (All races on inner dirt.) Post - 12:30 p.m.1 Iberian Gate(L) 120 Lopez 2-1-4 DeMola 5-1

2 Sister's Speed(L) 118 Alvarado 3-9-6 Jones 20-1

3 Storm Gal(L) 113 Kaplan 1-3-1 Pabon 8-1

4 Jacky Juice(L) 123 Cohen 1-1-1 Balsamo 2-1

7 Cheers(L) 118 Alvarado 1-1-1 Englehart 9-2

8 Aegean Breeze(L) 118 Studart 4-2-3 Quiles 30-1

9 Berengaria(L) 118 Dominguez 2-1-5 Kazamias 6-1

Jacky Juice is riding a three-race winning streak and could receive perfect setup in big field. Storm Gal was hand-ridden, front-running winner in last and could prove tough if able to withstand pace pressure. Cheers is speedy and owns fast numbers but shows light work tab for first start since June; mixed message. Berengaria attracts Dominhuez and owns fast figures on 'A' game.

5 1/2 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 3yo. NY Bred. Purse: $38,000.

1 My Pal S. P.(L1) 120 Husbands x-x-x Ronen 20-1

7 Dr. Mulligan(L1) 120 Thompson x-x-x Hooper 15-1

8 Tindaro's Prospect(L) 120 Lopez 10-x-x Hertler 20-1

Starlantic was fast-figured second in debut and fired three-furlong bullet in the interim. Alarmist is training consistently for first start since November; rested and dangerous. Master Splash makes first start for streaking Chris Englehart barn; stay tuned to the tote.

6 Furlongs. Starters Allowance. 4&up. Purse: $22,000

1 Vicious Rapids(L) 120 Da Silva 4-1-1 Ferraro 10-1

2 The Zipster(L) 120 Lopez 2-1-2 Galluscio 3-1

3 Keechi Bullet(L) 118 Husbands 4-2-12 Ronen 12-1

7 J J's Prophet(L) 113 Kaplan 2-3-3 DeRosa 20-1

8 Close to the Vest(L) 115 Pedroza 6-1-1 Younghans 6-1

The Zipster was dueled into defeat when second to a perfect-trip winner in last; speed nearest fence with aggressive rider at the wheel. Close To The Vest regressed in last after fast-figured victory in prior; big-time rebound potential. Wicked Climb is fleet-footed and logs swift numbers with machine-like consistency; right in the thick of this

6 Furlongs. Claiming $7,500. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $17,000.

1 Royal Valentine(L) 115 Pedroza 8-4-7 Aquilino 15-1

2 Forest Raven(L) 120 Velasquez 6-1-1 Englehart 8-1

3 Mariah Scary(L) 120 Studart 6-7-11 Quick 30-1

4 Magic in the Stars(L) 121 Da Silva 1-1-2 Galluscio 4-5

5 Healthy Debate(L) 120 Dominguez 2-8-6 Rice 7-2

6 Wiseman's Jet(L) 120 Davis 9-5-9 Quiles 30-1

7 Blue Destiny(L) 121 Cohen 1-5-1 Levine 6-1

8 Amply Rewarded(L) 121 Chavez 2-1-3 Galluscio 10-1

Magic In The Stars crushed a $5k field at Crc by more than 11 lengths last time and appears to hold egde on the bottom-level locals. Amply Rewarded packs a potent stretch punch and could be the prime beneficiary if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Blue Destiny bested a next-out winner when a determined victor in last; don't ignore.

1 Artie's Chapter(L) 120 Alvarado 7-2-6 Barbara 10-1

8 Winning Token(L) 120 Castro 4-4-5 Bush 8-1

9 Belongs to Sheila(L) 120 Chavez 2-2-8 Hernandez 6-1

Miami Hammer tallied swift final fraction when a game second in last and owns fast back figures; more to give. Ontothenextone is riding an improving line on the numbers and picks up Dominguez for local return; dangerous. Conflicted exits sprints and should be forwardly placed at two turns; worth a look. Silver Birch bounced last out after fast-figured win two back; rebound possibility.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $12,500. 3yo. Fillies. Purse: $15,000.

1 Se Dio Vuole(L) 120 Velasquez 4-x-x Rice 3-1

2 J C's Queen(L) 115 Kaplan 6-7-7 Toscano, Jr 20-1

3 Number One Cherry(L) 120 Jara 3-x-x Shivmangal 5-1

9 American Appeal(L) 115 Pedroza 10-x-x Ryerson 30-1

10 Ballymurray Lass(L) 113 Amaro 10-x-x Grusmark 30-1

Katie's Dance notched improved pace and final figures when a clear-cut second in last; more to come. Bellariffic drops after dueling through hot fractions in last; could easily take this. Number One Cherry was just two lengths behind top selection in debut and has ample room to close the gap; don't dismiss.

1 Mile. Claiming $7,500. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $17,000.

1 Wise Choice(L) 120 Valdivia, Jr 4-4-8 Sciacca 15-1

2 Auric Girl(L) 113 Rivera 5-5-7 Rojas 30-1

3 Simple Western(L) 120 Lopez 3-9-7 Quick 12-1

4 No Goal(L) 120 Castro 2-1-4 Hennig 3-1

5 Starsilhouette(L) 120 Chavez 7-4-3 Galluscio 5-2

6 Goodgollymissdolly(L) 120 Davis 5-2-8 Iselin 8-1

7 Nina's Spirit(L) 120 Lezcano 8-7-1 Ferraro 4-1

8 Roaring Aly(L) 120 Santiago 2-6-4 Schettino 8-1

9 Charmed(L) 123 Dominguez 6-1-4 Donk 6-1

Simple Western gets class relief and consistently logs the fastest final fractions of the bunch; weakness of field is selection's strength. No Goal was willing second in sprint last and could be aided by today's aided ground. Nina's Spirit makes first start with claiming tag after failing to beat a runner in last; damaged goods?

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

6 Spoleto(L) 118 Velasquez 1-1-6 Schosberg 4-1

1a Obey the Rules(L) 118 Alvarado 6-3-5 Rodriguez 7-2

Annual Appeal unleashed strong kick when making wide move to land second in first start on inner strip and should have more in tank at playable price. Beauty Is A Beast logged deceptively fast internal figures when an even fifth last out; developing and dangerous. Does It Every Time owns fast back numbers and is training with a purpose for return from freshener for Rick Dutrow; big-time player.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $25,000. 3yo. Fillies. NY Bred. Purse: $21,000.

1 Wachiwi(L) 120 Alvarado 2-x-x Dutrow, Jr 7-2

7 McKenzie River(L) 115 Kaplan 7-x-x Hertler 15-1

8 Anna Mae Jones(L) 120 Lopez 6-5-4 Turner, Jr 8-1

9 Paradise by the C(L) 120 Dominguez 2-2-x Rodriguez 5-2

10 Ecoach(L) 120 Santiago 4-3-x Aquilino 4-1

Karakorumknowitall drops and gets the meds and should offer best value of the contenders in weak nightcap. Paradise By The C gets a free shot at maidens after being DQ'd from victory in last; logical short-priced threat. Three Grand City is fresh and owns speed; more than good enough on best. Wachiwi was game second in debut; be no surprise.
