8 Awesome Weekend(L) 118 Dominguez 3-x-x Contessa 8-5

Awesome Weekend has trained sharply since useful third in debut; more to come. Comandante shows work tab that concluded with half-mile bullet; could be the goods. No Nukes is another newcomer that picked up the tempo as race day drew near; worth long look.

6 Beautifulnightmare(L) 114 Garcia 8-6-7 Friedman 20-1

7 Sansannah(L) 121 Dominguez 8-7-3 Englehart 5-1

Smarty Bull is fresh and should be aided by probable pace dynamics. Primal Baby was second to a repeat winner in last; very playable. Truly Devoted will prove very tough on a soft lead.

10 Geisha Gal(L) 119 Alvarado 4-5-x Mott 15-1

11 Dixie in Pink 119 Lezcano 4-5-5 Harty 12-1

South Shore is bred to handle turf and trip and McGaughey barn excels with first-time grass runners. Riolama was compromised by soft splits in debut; very playable. Opalite wheels back in a hurry after useful fifth on Opening Day; price will be tempting.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $20,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $35,000.

9 Sim Sala Bim(L) 119 Velasquez 10-x-x Rice 15-1

Anchovy is riding a forward line on the numbers; close call. Simple Rules is rested and could play out as the dominant front-runner; very dangerous. Lemon Sundae was fourth in key race in lone dirt start; very interesting.

15 Melissa Song(L) 119 No Rider 7-5-x Rodriguez 8-1

16 Esthers Classy Las 119 No Rider 12-10-x Farrell 20-1

Flashy American was speed sharpened in sprint last and could be sitting on breakthrough with return to turf. Raquel drops and logged very fast fig on CD sod two starts back; big-time player. Deverell was pace and trip compromised in last and must be factored into mix if able to escape AE list.

7

1 Mile & 1 Furlong. (Inner Turf). Allowance. 3&up. Purse: $87,000.

1 Saturday's For Fun(L) 117 Prado 5-3-8 Tagg 15-1

11 Hangover Kid(L) 121 Lezcano 2-1-4 Servis 10-1

12 Vindication Now(L) 117 Velasquez 6-1-6 Moquett 20-1

Kanagaro turns back to shorter trip and should pack amplified late wallop. Hangover Kid was a fast-figured winner in most recent turf start; dangerous. Arc Above closed into hot final fraction in last; right in the thick of this. Scorcher and Saturday's For Fun have both trained sharply since their last starts; players at fat odds.

15 Rock Star Royalty(L) 114 Garcia 12-4-3 Brown 5-1

16 Santorini Moon(L) 121 Studart 3-5-1 Terracciano 6-1

Jardenia was a tough-trip fifth in most recent turf race; call based on price potential. The West Rim earned fast late pace fig when a willing second in last; dangerous. Pleasantfriday could prove a handful if able to transfer dirt form to sod.

9

1 Dame Marie(L) 118 Lezcano 6-5-1 Kenneally 6-1

Main Track Only

10 Lady Cohiba(L) 118 Lezcano 7-2-6 Clement 3-1

11 Proud Pearl(L) 118 Dominguez 4-5-5 Motion 4-1

12 Delightful Quality(L) 118 No Rider 1-2-x Albertrani 8-5

Alaura Michele is 1-for-1 on Spa sod and is working with a purpose for first start since October; career best predicted. Karlovy Vary owns field's fastest late pace and final numbers; could easily score as the chalk. Angel Terrace won last and fired crisp 5-furlong drill on Spa turf on Wednesday; worth long look.

10

6 1/2 Furlongs. The AMSTERDAM (Grade II). 3yo. Purse: $200,000.

6 Politicallycorrect(L) 117 Ortiz, Jr 2-3-2 Ward 10-1

7 Doctor Chit(L) 121 Dominguez 1-1-1 Pletcher 3-1

Unbridled's Note has worked sharply since earning lifetime best number when winning last at CD; ready for prime time. Currency Swap is 2-for-2 on Saratoga loam and projects as the main speed with aggressive ride. Politicallycorrect should pack intensified wallop with cutback to sprint.

11

1 Manx(L) 117 Maragh 5-1-6 Lukas 10-1

15 Minescape(L) 117 No Rider 6-4-2 Zito 7-2

16 Acadian Blues(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 2-6-1 Gyarmati 4-1

Police Chatter returns from helpful freshener after sixth in "live" race in May; call in wide-open nightcap. Manx owns speed and the rail; very playable. The Paddyman makes first start with claiming tag; must consider. Hey Cuz won last on Poly and is a two-time winner on grass; right in the thick of this.
