9El Viejo Verde(L)118Rosario2-3-3Cannizzo3-1

A Marked Man owns a late-running style that should be well served in opener. El Viejo Verde could play out as the speed of the speed. No More Options could wakeup with return to grass; price will be tempting.

8Call for the Clock(L)120Ortiz4-4-3Nevin5-2

Matt and Jesse regressed in last after fast-figured third in prior; rebounds. Duke of the City looms the main speed with aggressive ride. I Want You to Know gets rider upgrade and should improve in second start since four-month layoff.

6Hope Cross(L)124Castellano5-2-1Brown6-5

Magsamelia set sizzling splits when a front-running winner in last; more to come. Carolina Shag could be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Jet Majesty should be aided by cutback to 7 furlongs.

1aChief Assignment(L)124Franco4-7-3Friedman10-1

Friedman entry: Bear Clause displayed improved speed in last and mate Chief Assignment makes peak start of form cycle; just one goes with Manny Franco listed on both. Aprettysmoothguy returns to dirt and adds blinkers; very dangerous. Unforced is training sharply for first start in 332 days; worth long look.

13Browneyed Bachelor(L,M)115Cancel3-5-1Nevin3-1

Saint Finian logged fast final fraction when winning last on dirt; handles turf. Mr Rosenthal should pack amplified kick with cutback to sprint. Non Stop makes third start since layoff.

14Kicken Livi(L,AE)124Arroyo7-1-2Englehart20-1

Barrier to Entry projects as the speed of the speed with aggressive handling. Fantastic Eyes could be the prime beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues. Alexandrie is 1-for-1 on Belmont grass; right in the thick of this.


1 1/16 Mile. Starters Allowance. 3&up. Purse: $55,000.

5Day of Fury(L)124Velasquez6-7-5Jacobson2-1

6Special Ops(L)124Rosario1-2-7Clement7-2


H Man holds sharp current form and packs a solid late kick in contentious field. Day of Fury is speedy and makes first start for David Jacobson; very dangerous. Special Ops has worked strongly since breaking maiden on March 19; must respect.


7 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). The PARADISE CREEK. 3yo. Purse: $100,000.

7Bridget's Big Luvy(L)120Maragh8-1-5Englehart4-1

8A Lot(L)118Velazquez2-1-2Mott6-5

St. Louie was a hard-charging winner in last and should have more to give in second start since seven-month absence. Bridget's Big Luvy logged an eye-catching 5-furlong bullet on Belmont grass and will prove very tough on an unchallenged lead. A Lot was a game second in Grade 2 stakes on CD sod last time; very dangerous.


6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). Maiden Special Weight. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $75,000.

7May Flowers(L)118Castellano2-2-3Englehart2-1

8Okay Momma(L1)111Cancelx-x-xContessa15-1


Stormy Alexis is fresh and could be ideally positioned in the stalker's seat; rates close call. May Flowers has finished second in last two starts; continues trend? Smoke Signals was done in by hot fractions last time; must consider. Katama shows work tab that culminated with half-mile bullet; follow the money.
