6Lily Lynn(L)122Ortiz2-6-4Rodriguez4-1

Kiki Chacer is fleet-footed and could play out as the speed of the speed with return to dirt. Flashy in Pink also is speedy and will prove a tough customer on an unchallenged lead. Lily Lynn exits routes and could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues.

Rettalfa returns to dirt and should be nearing peak in third start since December. Spicy Spirit set sizzling splits when a game second in last; very dangerous. Dust Em Mick makes first start for DAS/Jacobson after failing to deliver on heavy tote support in debut; very interesting. Gravitate consistently burns cash at short odds; your move.


6 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Maiden Claiming $35,000. Purse: $40,000.

6Here Comes Stones(L1)119Maraghx-x-xLevine8-1

7Dearest Dixie(L)119Lezcano6-x-xServis8-1

Bustin Out Allover chased hot fractions in debut and should be tighter with race under belt. Lumineuse makes first start with maiden claiming tag and owns fast dirt numbers. Group Therapy has finished second in last three starts; must consider.


11/4 Miles. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $77,000.

7Stormy Len(L)117Velazquez3-2-4Donk2-1

1aReady to Taunt(L)122Castellano5-1-4Jacobson5-1

Hardest Core overcame plodding pace when a surging winner at the marathon distance last time; pairs up. State Flag has trained sharply since bested by a next-out winner when a solid third in last; dangerous in first start since $50k claim by Mike Maker. Kingofthebluegrass is competitive on best efforts.


7 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $70,000.

8Defined Benefit(L)119Solis4-x-xViolette, Jr2-1

9Laguna Girl(L)119Rosario2-5-2Orseno9-5

Forever Road hails from potent second-out stable and compiled solid work tab for first start in nearly a year. Daddy Loves Gold owns speed and fast numbers; big-time player. Placentia also is fleet-footed and owns swift final figures; right in the thick of this.


1 Mile. 3&up. Starter Optional Claiming. Purse: $60,000.

8Santa Elf(L)117Maragh3-3-1Levine4-1

9Willy Elliot(L)122Rosario1-3-4Servis5-1

Willy Elliot was a front-running winner in last and looms the controlling speed once again. Third Knight was a determined winner in last and has yet to take a backward step on the numbers. Warrior Up can prove a serious stretch threat on best efforts.

7Run a Dubb Dubb(L)110Franco4-7-1Persaud12-1

8Me Mandy(L)122Richards6-10-1Chin30-1

Hundred Acre Wood should pack intensified late wallop with cutback to sprint. Unbroken Dream exits fast-figured maiden score and now makes first start since claimed by Rudy Rodriguez; very dangerous. Need an Angel turned in sub-par effort in last but owns swift back figures; worth a look.


7 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Claiming $35,000-$25,000. Purse: $50,000.

1aSokitumi Samurai(L)122Maragh5-4-1Toscano, Jr12-1

Mahubo was an even fifth last time at Woodbine and packs potent late kick on best efforts; close call in ultra-contentious nightcap. Alcomatch was second to a repeat winner on turf two starts back; very dangerous. Karakorum Legend is rested and is more than good enough on 'A' game. Unaccountable is a five-time winner on Belmont turf and owns fast figures on best.
