6 Wee Party(L) 118 Alvarado 6-4-1 Mott 6-1

Orient Moon has trained strongly since impressive score in debut. Double The Energy fell victim to scorching splits last time and could prove very tough with softer flow. McCarren Park won last and paired up victories this past fall; dangerous.

Main Track Only

12 Trinity Warrior(L) 122 No Rider 4-1-5 Ubillo 10-1

Freud's Debut should pack potent kick at 7 furlongs and is training strongly for first start in 151 days. Blue Punch is fleet-footed and could play out as the main speed. Praying For Mike also owns speed and is bred to handle switch to sod.

5

1 Stonemill(L) 124 Studart 9-1-2 Dunham 15-1

11 Pawleys Porch(L) 122 Napravnik 8-9-2 Englehart 8-1

6 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $55,000.

Main Track Only

16 Quiet Ending(L) 118 No Rider 4-2-x Clement 5-2

Ladywell Court compiled tightly grouped work tab for first start since Labor Day; intensified kick at 6 furlongs. Loblolly Pine gets the meds and cuts back in distance; very interesting. White Glove logged solid numbers in both starts and must be factored into mix if able to escape AE list. Flirtatious Spring is working well for first start in 312 days; must consider.

1a Softly Lit(L) 120 Rook 1-1-6 Kobiskie 6-1

8 Permanent Wave(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 7-2-1 Englehart 20-1

Jazzy Idea owns sit-and-pounce style that should be well served in field with ample speed. Softly Lit is quick from the gate and is riding a two-race winning streak; very playable. Let's Get Married is 2-for-2 and moves to grass for Graham Motion; logical. Sweet Cat has worked strongly since clear-cut win in last; be no surprise.

7 Nefertini(L) 120 Castellano 1-1-2 Goldberg 3-1

Nefertini tallied swift final fraction when winning last and logged three closely grouped works in the interim. North Freeway is speedy and firing bullets and has won three of last four; very dangerous. Catch A Thief could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues.

Main Track Only

16 Iberian Gate(L) 122 No Rider 4-1-6 DeMola 12-1

Eden Is Burning notched both lifetime wins on Belmont sod and projects as the speed of the speed with aggressive ride. In Her Hey Day should pack enhanced late kick with cutback to 6 furlongs; worth long look. Mystical Rhythms owns fast figs and is 1-for-1 on the Belmont turf. Say Toba Sandy was a fast-figured second on Belmont lawn last summer; don't ignore.
