5 Bebinn(L) 117 Velasquez 1-x-x Fawkes 6-1

6 Kindersley(L) 117 Dominguez 7-5-1 Matz 8-1

7 Pink Palace(L) 121 Lezcano 7-1-5 Abbott 12-1

All About Alex was pace and trip compromised when third last time and should move forward in second start since March. Cody Samora is the one that must be caught; very dangerous. So Much Love has delivered strong efforts in all three starts; must respect.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $54,000.

1 Malibu Moon Dance(L) 121 Dominguez 5-6-2 Trombetta 6-1

5 Emily Allstar(L) 121 Figueroa 9-7-6 Kopaj 15-1

6 Hit It Rich(L) 121 Solis 7-3-6 McGaughey III 6-1

Emily Allstar gets class relief and returns to proper footing for cagey Paul Kopaj barn. Sophia looms the main speed in third start of form cycle. Malibu Moon Dance is training with a purpose for first start in 222 days; worth long look.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Maiden Claiming $35,000. NY Bred. Purse: $23,000.

1 Dreamin of Silver(L1) 119 Lopez x-x-x Hills 8-1

2 Alarmist(L) 119 Velazquez 6-8-2 Gyarmati 7-2

3 Molly's Ship(L) 119 Castellano 5-8-2 Contessa 3-1

5 Thelampisnotguilty(L) 119 Hill 9-4-x Schosberg 5-2

6 Pitt Maneuver(L) 119 Espinoza 11-x-x Contessa 15-1

7 Joli's Hero(L) 118 Rodriguez 9-6-7 Russo 30-1

Alarmist is fresh, working sharply and gets class relief; weakness of field is selection's strength. Rocky Fortune tallied solid pace and final numbers when second in last; logical, short-priced player. Molly's Ship should be aided by class drop and return to dirt.

1 Mile. 3&up. Maiden Special Weight. NY Bred. Purse: $41,000.

1 This Hard Land(L) 118 Lezcano 10-2-3 Ubillo 8-1

2 Anaphylaxis(L) 113 Rodriguez 10-7-7 Corrao 20-1

3 Le Freak(L) 118 Velasquez 2-x-x Ferraro 6-1

4 Take a Walk(L) 113 Curatolo 3-5-11 Serpe 2-1

5 Sound of Drums(L) 118 Castro 4-4-4 Divitto 8-1

6 Bud White(L) 118 Dominguez 2-3-2 Dutrow, Jr 3-1

7 Our Eli(L) 118 Castellano 4-2-2 Brown 7-2

This Hard Land never got involved on turf last time but could bounce back at fat ticket with return to preferred footing. Bud White earned fast pace figure in last and could prove very tough as the main speed. Take a Walk is riding an improving line on the numbers; right in the thick of this.

6 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $16,000. Purse: $18,000.

1 Dean Avenue(L) 119 Espinoza 3-4-2 Callejas 6-1

2 Ms Diller(L) 119 Lopez 2-5-2 Canani 2-1

9 Margaro(L) 118 Rodriguez 7-9-8 Sciacca 30-1

10 Isabella Bella(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 7-5-3 Terracciano 10-1

Rennina hails from white-hot Bond barn and owns closing style that could prove to be the key in cheap maiden grass sprint. Ms Diller is fleet-footed and drops; big-time player. Soinlovewithuam I takes potent class drop after two poor efforts this spring; gets game back today?

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $21,000.

1 Mr. Hadif(L) 121 Castro 3-5-5 Lostritto 10-1

6 Dixie Nite Out(L) 121 Dominguez 5-4-7 Contessa 5-1

7 Mystic Era(L) 118 Curatolo 8-1-2 Toscano, Jr 12-1

8 Dontquityourdayjob(L) 121 Pezua 10-7-6 Martin, Sr. 30-1

The Prince makes peak start of form cycle after earning fast late pace figure in last; more to come. Cayo Hueso could prove very tough to collar if allowed soft lead. Dixie Nite Out spun his wheels in the mud last time but should be far more formidable on dry land.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Allowance. NY Bred. Purse: $42,000.

2 Red Hot Baby(L) 116 Rodriguez 7-2-5 Terranova,II 12-1

3 Gambling Geraldine(L) 117 Velazquez 3-5-2 Pletcher 5-2

4 Good Night Lucy(L) 121 Espinoza 4-3-1 Odintz 8-1

7 She's Got Rules(L) 121 Luzzi 4-4-3 Jerkens 15-1

8 Spa Sunrise(L) 117 Sanchez 6-1-x Ward 7-2

Lady On the Run made a solid late run when second on turf in last and was fast-figured winner on dirt two starts back. Gambling Geraldine chased fast fractions and flattened last time but should be tighter in second start since two-month layoff. Grande Roja didn't care for slop last time but logged good number when second in prior; worth a look.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $52,000.

2 American Classic(L) 121 Solis 1-4-3 Schosberg 12-1

7 Duke of Naples(L) 121 Cohen 8-1-9 Levine 10-1

8 Manchild(L) 121 Hill 1-7-7 Martin 15-1

Main Track Only

9 Settle for Medal(L) 117 No Rider 4-4-5 Hennig 12-1

New Yawker tallied solid final fractions in last two starts and should pack intensified wallop with cutback to 6 furlongs. Higher Court is from a dam that's produced five turf winners and could play out as the speed of the speed in grass debut. Gantry notched swift late pace figure when breaking maiden at Pha last year and could relish switch to sod; very playable.

6 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $26,000.

11 Our Friend Harvey(L) 121 Lopez 6-4-4 Hills 4-1

12 Jet to Classics(L) 116 Curatolo 6-7-1 Hertler 20-1

Main Track Only

13 Coaltown Legend(L) 121 Cohen 7-7-3 Levine 6-1

14 Ricoriatoa(L) 121 No Rider 2-1-7 Contessa 5-2

2b That's Rich(L) 116 Curatolo 4-1-4 Rodriguez 6-1

Ziptronic compiled swift work slate for first start since New Year's Day; main speed with aggressive ride. Leadwithyourchin tallied very fast late pace figures in routes last year and will be the prime beneficiary if top selection wilts in the lane. Alcanudance was a tenacious winner in last; don't ignore. Ever a Friend was an even fifth in last and should move forward in second start since five-month absence.
