9Anchor Down(L)120Saez3-1-1Pletcher4-1


Mr Palmer got his game back when a determined second in last; more to give in first start for Charlie Baker. Anchor Down has logged fast figs in all three starts; dangerous. Sir Bond is fresh and owns rapid final numbers on 'A' game; must consider.

4Curious Cal(L)124Jara5-3-1Baker5-2

5Brass Pear(L)124Franco5-2-1Donk4-1


Manhattan Johnnie projects as the speed of the speed with aggressive ride from the rail. Joking could be the prime beneficiary if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Curious Cal logged very fast number when a determined winner on March 13; must consider.

16Justenufflaughter(L,AE)117Perez8-10-9Jolley, Jr30-1

Hatta's Appeal makes turf debut for Dave Donk; drop into maiden claimer seals the deal. Weekend Hottie logged three tight works since tough-trip third in last; very dangerous. Winter Wish runs late and could be aided by today's longer trip. Weekend Score must be factored into the mix if able to escape AE list. Sweetdreamsaboutme could land in exotics at fat ticket if pace meltdown ensues.
