9 Majestic Marquet(L) 118 Velasquez 1-1-4 Rodriguez 2-1

Glorious Chant tallied solid final fractions in both turf starts and rates call based on price potential in contentious opener. Maximova delivered on heavy tote support when a clear-cut winner in debut; dangerous. Alydorable logged fast figure when winning only turf start; could easily take this.

Duke of the City notched quick late pace figure when a determined winner in last at Pim and fired half-mile bullet in the interim. Happy My Way regressed in last after hard-fought win in prior; rebound potential. Battier owns four wins and two seconds from six starts; must consider.

10 Maxana(L) 111 Tomas 3-5-4 Hertler 6-1

11 Isn'tshewonderfull(L) 118 Rosario 4-7-2 Tagg 5-2

Mela Dramatically owns fast late pace numbers and is training with a purpose for first start since November. Chrissy Girl makes third start of form cycle after displaying newfound speed in last; price will be tempting. The Lady Says Yes bested a next-out winner when a hard-charging second in last; right in the thick of this.

10 Athenula(L) 113 Rodriguez 3-3-6 Jerkens 5-1

11 Tricky Tiffany(L) 118 Davis 10-8-x Reiff 30-1

Athenula is riding a forward line on the numbers and is bred to handle move to turf. Underage should pack amplified kick with cutback to 6 furlongs; worth long look at long price. Bet U Can't Find Me switches to sod in first start since claimed by Linda Rice; dangerous. Chessrate owns fast turf numbers; don't ignore.

6 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $25,000. Purse: $35,000.

Main Track Only

12 Lurabell(L) 109 Franco 6-1-x Adsit 8-1

Rodinia should pack intensified wallop at 6 furlongs and is working sharply for first start since December. Hold It is fleet-footed and could prove a very tough customer on a soft lead. Guyana Star closes and could easily impact if pace meltdown ensues.

8 Regal Warrior(L) 122 Rosario 8-3-2 Rodriguez 2-1

9 Matt and Jesse(L) 122 Espinoza 7-7-5 Ortiz 20-1

Assured Victory earned improved pace figure in last and could be circling back to best efforts. Artie Luvsto Party was a strong second in last and hails from the white-hot David Jacobson stable. Most Happy Fella owns speed, fast figs and is a hot commodity at the claim box; big-time player.

6 Song of Aspen(L) 118 Cohen 6-8-8 Persaud 20-1

7 Cat Man Fu(L) 124 Lezcano 4-10-6 Horton, Jr 20-1

Bernando wheels back in a hurry after much-improved placing last week; more to come. Thnxtomyuncle tallied soild final fraction when fourth last time and has foundation on the final figures. Jade Run bested a next-out winner by a neck when second in same last race as 'Uncle'; right in the thick of this.

11 Bedouin Now(L) 118 Castellano 3-1-3 Ness 6-1

12 Much Stronger(L) 118 Velasquez 4-2-1 Jacobson 5-2

Cashleigh was compromised by wide trip in last and now makes first start since claimed by crafty connections. Saved the Best tallied career best number when a clear-cut winner in last; very dangerous. Unbridled Logic is rested and was just three lengths behind top selection in lone turf start; don't ignore.

1a Go Olivia Go(L) 116 Alvarado 3-3-6 Jacobson 3-1

9 Shalala(L) 116 Lezcano 1-3-5 Zito 6-1

Pumpkin Lane displayed improved speed in last and could be primed for breakthrough effort at fat ticket. Dahteste owns fast figures but takes troubling two-level price plunge; vulnerable chalk? Shalala has trained sharply since easy maiden score in last; developing and dangerous. Jacobson entry: Pure Afleet and Go Olivia Go both failed as the favorites in last; just one goes with Alvarado named on both.
