6 Bellamy Brew(L) 120 Cruz 9-1-1 Jacobson 7-2

Saint Finian makes first start since claimed by David Jacobson. Hannibal Lecter is more than good enough on 'A' game; owns win at Spa. Bellamy Brew should improve in second start since 21-month layoff.

3

1 Ackerman Road(L) 124 Castellano 5-12-5 Levine 2-1

9 Tuneintobow(L) 124 Lopez 2-3-4 Dibona 8-1

Private Show adds blinkers, drops and moves to turf; breakthrough predicted. Ackerman Road is speedy and rested; dangerous. Alto Sky should be aided by today's shorter trip; price will be tempting.

4

1 Enchantress(L) 108 Cancel 6-12-8 Pletcher 20-1

4 Judy the Beauty(L) 124 Rosario 2-1-1 Ward 1-1

5 Street Story(L) 116 Castellano 2-1-2 Asmussen 6-1

La Verdad holds an edge on pace and final figures. Street Story could be the prime beneficiary if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Judy the Beauty is firing bullets for first start since May 2; dangerous.

5

1 1/16 Mile. (Mellon Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Starters Allowance. Purse: $55,000.

Main Track Only

13 Oaks(L) 122 Alvarado 5-4-3 Brown 4-1

14 Rachel's Temper(L) 122 Rosario 1-4-8 Cannizzo 6-1

Sylvia T earned solid final fraction when breaking maiden in last and has trained sharply for first start since claimed by Rudy Rodriguez. Undertherain was a front-running winner in last and could easily pair up victories if allowed another soft lead. Morethanawarning would be aided by pace meltdown.

6

6 1/2 Furlongs. 3&up. Claiming $25,000. Purse: $42,000.

1 Successful Runner(L) 121 Lopez 3-1-2 Pascucci 7-2

9 Cloverdale Nine(L) 120 Hernandez 3-6-4 Ward 15-1

10 Deficit Hawk(L) 120 Ortiz 7-3-4 Violette, Jr 12-1

Wynhurst was a fast-figured winner in last at SA and now makes first start for Jacobson. Successful Runner could play out as the controlling speed on the rail if primed for first start in 331 days; demand value. Rich 'n' Tuck packs a potent late kick on best efforts.

7

16 La Dama de Hierro(L) 124 Sullivan 9-9-3 Shevy 50-1

First Charmer projects as the dominant front-runner in first start for Bill Mott. Ranger's Express was pace and position compromised when a late-running fifth in last at CD; more to give. Broken Border makes peak start of form cycle; worth long look at long price. Donatienne bested a next-out winner when second in debut on Spa sod last summer; right in the thick of this.

8

14 H Man(L) 117 Carmouche 9-5-2 Cannizzo 6-1

15 Zabaione(L) 119 Cancel 5-3-6 Bond 2-1

Oklahoma Don gets class relief and owns fast late pace figures on 'A' game. Battle of Evermore makes first turf start since moving to Chad Brown barn; very dangerous. Birchwood Road's speed gives him a puncher's chance at a generous price.

9 Lucky Lotto(L) 115 Cancel 3-4-2 Barker 5-1

12 Integrity(L) 120 No Rider 4-2-4 Rodriguez 3-1

Slim Shadey tallied swift final fraction when a tough-trip second in last; more to come. Mr. Online fired 5-furlong bullet since dud on Fourth of July; improvement expected. Front was compromised by wide trip when a game second in last; very playable.

10

9 Highroller Dave(L) 120 Saez 4-4-4 Maker 8-1

10 Tug of War(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 7-2-5 Farro 10-1

Real Estate Rich was a late-running third in last and owns faster back numbers; more to give. Native Gold notched rapid 5-furlong drill over Saratoga surface on Friday; very dangerous. Smokem's Charm owns competitive figures on best efforts. Spa City Fever takes suspicious price plunge; fire sale?
