6 Peach Lake(L) 120 Lopez 9-7-5 Sciacca 15-1

7 Shangaloo(L) 120 Gomez 3-6-5 Breed 20-1

Rumble Doll drops and hails from potent second-out stable. She's a Sizzler makes peak start of form cycle after clear-cut second in last. Maybry's Fortune's speed gives her a puncher's chance.

6 Mental Iceberg(L) 118 Arroyo 2-6-8 DiPrima 5-2

7 Sidearm(L) 118 Maragh 2-3-3 Contessa 6-1

Sidearm closes in sprints and should be aided by today's added ground. First Ranger regressed in last after game score in prior; rebound potential. Freddie G overcame rough trip when a game maiden winner in last; very dangerous.

9 Shylock(L) 115 Esquivel 5-8-4 DiPrima 10-1

King Gettigan wheels back in a hurry after late-running second last week. Coldwater Flat drops after speed and fade when favored in GP debut; very dangerous. Prince Raja raced wide in debut and should improve with race under belt.

5 1/2 Furlongs. Starters Allowance. 4&up. Purse: $47,000.

1 Moments Notiz(L) 120 Lopez 3-1-1 Jacobson 4-5

7 In the Beat(L) 108 Davis 6-5-7 DeMola 30-1

8 Inaflash(L) 108 McCarthy 6-2-1 Belsoeur 20-1

Doubledown Again was a tough-trip third in last and fired crisp 3-furlong work on Wednesday. Bellamy has won three of last four; very playable. Moments Notiz logs swift numbers with machine-like consistency; be no surprise.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 4&up. NY Bred. Purse: $50,000.

1 Brass Pear(L) 121 Castro 4-6-3 Sedlacek 5-1

2 Ride a Cat 121 Montanez 7-7-x Smith 30-1

8 Midnight Missile(L) 121 Franco 4-4-4 Baker 15-1

9 Shot to Win(L) 121 Ortiz 5-5-7 Schettino 10-1

Shot to Win notched sharp 5-furlong breeze last week for first start since New Year's Day; call based on price. Giulio Cesari was a tough-trip third in last and should have more to give in second start since two-month layoff. Horatio owns fast figs but is a consistent failure at short odds; you've been warned.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. Claiming $12,500. 4&up. Purse: $24,000.

1 Copywriter(L) 113 McCarthy 4-6-5 Sciacca 15-1

9 Vee's Accolade(L) 113 Rice 7-5-9 Barbara 7-2

Western Grit drops after pace and position compromised in last; rates close call. Griffin Rock logged four tight works since clear-cut win on Jan. 10; could easily take another. Amber Coast returns from Prx after failing to get the job done as the favorite on Jan. 27; recoups losses today?

1 Irish Sweepstakes(L) 119 Maragh 3-1-2 Hennig 4-1

9 Margaret Ownzit(L) 112 Mejias 1-2-1 Rodriguez 10-1

10 Bridget Moloney(L) 119 Ortiz, Jr 4-1-1 Gullo 6-1

Bridget Moloney was in over her hand last time but handle these on 'A' game. Henry's Gal has visually impressed in both starts; paltry price is the problem. Happy Recap was a clear-cut winner in last and could pair up at generous ticket.

5 1/2 Furlongs. Claiming $12,500. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $22,000.

1 Miss Silver Birch(L) 118 Arroyo 5-4-3 DiSanto 15-1

2 Ellen Dorene(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 3-8-1 Rodriguez 4-1

3 Rettalfa(L) 118 Lezcano 6-1-4 Gullo 6-1

4 Cry Holy(L) 111 Mejias 8-9-6 Barbara 20-1

5 Blue Sixty Four(L) 111 Worrie 6-7-3 O'Brien 20-1

6 Peggy Virginia(L) 113 Rice 3-1-7 Jacobson 3-1

7 No It's Not Me(L) 116 Esquivel 1-3-2 Imperio 12-1

8 Jealous(L) 118 Husbands 2-6-8 Legall 12-1

9 Vivi's Party Girl(L) 111 Zayas 6-7-1 Imperio 20-1

10 Evasive Cat(L) 118 Beato 4-6-4 Rodriguez 5-2

Cry Holy gets favorable turnback in distance and could wakeup in weak nightcap. Evasive Cat drops in first start since claimed by Rudy Rodriguez; likely chalk. Peggy Virginia cuts back to sprint and makes first outing for David Jacobson; logical, short-priced player. Rettalfa is fresh and owns competitive numbers on best efforts.
