5 Elena's Princess Bocachica 118 Arroyo 10/1

6 Normandy Queen Musarro 111 Terracciano 30/1

7 Smokin Girl Flores 118 Gutierrez 12/1

Smokin Girl is training consistently for first start in 10 weeks and could receive ideal setup in cheap opener. Rice entry: Huge Party was a clear-cut winner at this level in last and mate Saturdaynitesandy is riding an improving line on the numbers. Indy's Forum loves the inner track and logs fast figures on best efforts.

SECOND: 6 Furlongs. Fillies. 3yo. Maiden Claiming $12,500. Purse: $14,000.

1 Vita Veloce Cohen 120 Levine 6/5

1a Lady of Song Luzzi 120 Levine 6/5

2 Stormy Shay Jara 120 Hertler 5/1

3 Miss Tequila Lezcano 115 Martin 6/1

4 Momma Ain't Happy DeSouza 120 Cooney 15/1

5 Dubai Indeed Studart 120 Reynolds 7/2

6 No Caller I D Rodriguez 120 LeCesse 12/1

7 Runaway Dunne Napravnik 120 O'Brien 10/1

Dubai Indeed is speedy and drops; weakness of field is selection's strength. Vita Veloce lost rider in local debut but earned good numbers in two starts at Hawthorne; dangerous. Stormy Shay fired crisp half-mile drill since tough-trip fifth in last; worth a look.

THIRD: 6 Furlongs. 3yo. Starter Allowance. Purse: $41,000.

1 Tutor Serpa 114 Dutrow, Jr. 9/5

1a Always Mine Dominguez 119 Dutrow, Jr. 9/5

3 Propellor Jones Cohen 120 Pletcher 2/1

4 Lion Attack Napravnik 120 Shuman 6/1

5 Green Shoots Migliore 120 Violette, Jr. 3/1

6 Rapide One Hill 119 Ritvo 12/1

Dutrow entry: Always Mine has trained sharply since fast-figured win last month and mate Tutor has also worked strongly since last start; potent pairing. Green Shots numerically impressed when winning debut; big-time threat. Lion Attack bested a next-out winner en route to dominant score in debut at Penn National; right in the thick of this.

FOURTH: 6 Furlongs. 4&up. Maiden Claiming $10,000. Purse: $13,000.

1 Costello Dream Corujo 115 Quiles 30/1

2 Winitback Bocachica 122 Grusmark 2/1

5 Napkins Migliore 122 Hennig 6/1

6 Mr Met Lezcano 117 Imperio 12/1

7 Dontquityourdayjob Lopez 122 Martin, Sr. 5/2

8 Takedouble Simpson 115 DeMola 20/1

9 Flaming Punch Cohen 117 Jacobson 6/1

Dontquityourdayjob earned fast late pace figure when a hard charging second last time; now or never. Winitback was just a neck behind top selection after carving the fractions; dangerous. S.Z. Madison drops and owns competitive numbers; don't ignore.

FIFTH: 1 Mile. 4&up. Claiming $12,500. Purse: $18,000.

1 Wonderous Day DeSouza 123 Terracciano 20/1

2 Commodore Way Dominguez 123 Brown 5/2

5 Crafty Mark Napravnik 123 Englehart 7/2

6 Wadi Suki Serpa 118 Persaud 8/1

7 Nkosi Reigns Lopez 123 Contessa 4/1

8 One Starry Nite Jara 123 Martin, Sr. 15/1

9 Prince Raffie Musarro 116 Kettell 20/1

Nkosi Reigns gets price hike after convincing score in last; gives one more before the bounce. Commodore Way makes first start since claimed and fired crisp 5-furlong breeze last week; very playable. Crafty Mark gets class relief and makes peak start of form cycle; must consider.

SIXTH: 6 Furlongs. 4&up. Claiming $20,000-$18,000. Purse: $28,000.

1 Temecula Creek Santiago 118 Jacobson 3/1

1a Great Emperor Dominguez 118 Jacobson 3/1

2 Chief Export Cohen 118 Autrey 4/1

3 King Rush Musarro 111 DeMola 15/1

4 Basha's Moon Napravnik 118 Trombetta 10/1

5 Democrat Rodriguez 116 Gutierrez 30/1

6 Mr. Unstoppable Hill 118 Schosberg 5/1

7 Eltish Star Espinoza 118 Ortiz 8/1

8 Our Honor Luzzi 118 Brown 5/2

Chief Export was a determined winner in last and now makes first start since claimed by Cody Autrey; more to come. Our Honor drops and could play out as the main speed; very playable. Jacobson entry: Temecula Creek drops to lifetime low and mate Great Emperor logs swift numbers with machine-like consistency; potent pairing.

SEVENTH: 6 Furlongs. 4&up. Claiming $25,000. Purse: $23,000.

1 Half a Note Lopez 118 Rice 7/2

2 Elixir Dominguez 118 Levine 3/1

3 Rocketing Returns Bocachica 118 Benzel 9/2

4 Woodacre Cohen 118 Schosberg 6/1

5 No Questions Jara 118 Iselin 12/1

6 Extinguish Musarro 113 Persaud 12/1

7 Pewter Serpa 115 Bond 4/1

8 Brock N Roll Rodriguez 118 Kettell 30/1

9 Admirality Espinoza 118 Ortiz 15/1

Half A Note starts from the coveted rail and owns sit-and-pounce style that should be well served in ultra-contentious heat. Pewter was compromised by hot pace when third as the favorite in last; dangerous. Elixir logged three tightly grouped works since last start and now makes third outing of form cycle.

EIGHTH: 1 Mile & 70 Yards. F&M. 4&up. Allowance. Purse: $43,000.

1 Spina Hill 118 Friedman 9/2

2 Spring Elusion Serpa 113 Rice 7/2

3 Ouchy Night Napravnik 118 Bush 4/1

4 Crafty Gem Davis 113 Iselin 12/1

5 Star Orchid Lopez 118 Asmussen 10/1

6 Sophie's Joy Musarro 111 Terranova 15/1

7 Zaphyra Dominguez 118 Dutrow, Jr. 8/5

Spring Elusion tallied swift final fraction when a clear-cut winner in first start on inner track; more to come. Crafty Gem demolished maidens in last and could prove tough as the main speed once again. Zaphyra was a fast-figured maiden winner in last at Lrl; big-time danger.

NINTH: 6 Furlongs. 4&up. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $16,000.

1 Timber Cruise Cohen 118 Jacobson 3/1

2 Wollaston Bay Musarro 111 Sciacca 12/1

6 Call Tiger Bisono 118 D'Alessandro 12/1

7 May Day Now Dominguez 118 Contessa 4/1

8 Monster Boots Fragoso 118 Perkins, Jr. 10/1

9 Brook Dance Serpa 113 Callejas 6/1

10 Victorious Affair Alvarado 118 Conway, Jr. 7/2

Timber Cruise is fresh and owns a late running style that should be well served in cheap nightcap. Wollaston Bay tallied swift pace and final figures when a game second in last; very playable. Brook Dance owns speed and sharp current form; must consider. May Day Now drops after stopping severely in last; damaged goods?
