7 Promise Me A Cat(L) 121 Solis 2-3-4 Martin 12-1

My Sunshine Gal projects as the controlling speed in paceless opener. Promise Me A Cat could be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Ms Vanenzza regressed in last but owns fast figs on 'A' game.

15 Laylaben(L) 121 No Rider 10-1-4 Rice 8-1

16 Cat Ferrad(L) 121 Napravnik 11-4-1 Galluscio 4-1

Miss Woods was a dominant, front-running winner in last and should transfer razor-sharp form to turf. Vinda exits "live" race and makes peak start of form cycle; very playable. Lea The Punisher hails from white-hot Tony Dutrow stable; could easily take this.

1 Mile & 1 Eighth. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $85,000.

2 Hilda's Legacy(L) 112 Garcia 3-7-6 Jerkens 12-1

6 Happy Now(L) 119 Castro 5-8-8 McGaughey III 8-1

1a Closing Move(L) 119 Castellano 4-3-2 Albertrani 4-5

Joya Real owns speed and could get early jump in field that's lacking clearly defined front-runner. Centring was top-figured second behind entry mate in last; obviosly could take this. Hilda's Legacy is riding a forward line on the numbers; worth long look at long price.

5 Furlongs. 2yo. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $80,000.

1 Stage Street(L) 118 Leparoux 2-x-x Asmussen 7-2

6 Park City(L1) 118 Velazquez x-x-x Pletcher 3-1

7 Volastic(L) 118 Dominguez 2-x-x Salzman, Jr 5-1

Titletown Five has worked three times since making four-wide move in debut; moves forward today. Stage Street was a game second when favored in debut; big-time danger. Coach A. J. is another that was second as the chalk in first start; logical player.

5

15 Majestic Hope(L) 121 Napravnik 2-2-5 Brown 5-2

1a Charlie's Quest(L) 117 No Rider 4-5-1 Dutrow, Jr 4-1

Back Away tallied swift late pace fig when winning second straight last time; gets hat trick. Primo logged five tight works since front-running second last month; very playable. Volcano Run fired crisp half-mile work since breaking maiden in last start; right in the thick of this.

6

1 Mile. (Inner Turf). The IRISH LINNET. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $100,000.

1 Lemon Tiger(L) 118 Maragh 4-4-3 Schettino 12-1

12 Harbor Mist(L) 113 No Rider 3-1-1 Serpe 6-1

13 Myrtle's Gray(L) 118 Maragh 8-2-3 Duggan 15-1

Hessonite consistently notches the field's fastest final fractions; takes this on best. Considerate owns sprinter's speed and could prove very tough on a soft lead. Inimitable Romanee overcame wide journey to win last; very dangerous.

Main Track Only

13 Double Mint(L) 117 Luzzi 7-3-1 Galluscio 6-1

14 Full of Intent(L) 117 Castellano 6-1-1 Levine 5-1

Newbie fired 5-furlong bullet since chasing hot fractions on dirt last time; set for best in turf debut. Freedom Rings is rested, training with a purpose and packs potent late kick on 'A' game; dangerous. Shesabronxbomber needed last, has benefit of rail and picks up Dominguez; worth long look. Necessary Luxury was a fast-figured winner at 33-1 last time; very interesting.

1 Mile & 1 Furlong. The CURLIN. 3yo. Purse: $100,000.

1 Politicallycorrect(L) 116 Rosario 2-3-2 Ward 8-1

7 Love to Run(L) 120 Alvarado 1-1-4 Kimmel 12-1

8 Morgan's Guerrilla(L) 116 Dominguez 3-2-11 Maker 10-1

Ever So Lucky was a visually impressive winner in last at Del and should have more to give in second start since April. Morgan's Guerrilla was victimized in by hot fractions in Dwyer and could make the top with aggressive ride. Politicallycorrect logs fast numbers with machine-like consistency; dangerous. Street Life compiled eye-catching work slate since fourth in Belmont Stakes; more than good enough on best.

16 Thunderous G(L) 123 No Rider 3-4-3 Arnold, II 3-1

Jim Jamm is training with a purpose for high-percentage turf barn; breakthrough predicted. Lion Prince drops and makes peak start of form cycle. Here Comes Drz was a fast-figured second in last; must consider. Big Red Talent could play out as the dominant speed.
