9 Pawleys Porch(L) 122 Nakatani 1-8-9 Englehart 20-1

Charlestonian was a fast-figured, front-running winner the first time he touched the Belmont loam; pairs up. Laysh Laysh Laysh owns fast late pace and final figs; very dangerous. Oblingingly was tough-trip third behind 'Laysh' last time out; big-time player.

5 Wicked Disco(L1) 118 Ortiz, Jr x-x-x Ryerson 12-1

8 Harry Consolidator(L) 113 Ayuso 4-5-8 Shivmangal 20-1

9 Warrior From Above(L) 117 Garcia 6-3-2 Ubillo 10-1

Warrior From Above gets class relief, cuts back to 6 furlongs and pulls seven pounds from main contenders. Jade Glory Again also drops and returns to dirt after regressing in last; dangerous. Canwewin was just length behind next-out winner last time; logical, short-priced player.

Main Track Only

12 Redemption Road(L) 118 No Rider 8-2-5 Jerkens 5-2

13 Personal Strike(L) 118 No Rider 5-x-x Dutrow, Jr 8-1

Third Martini failed when favored in last but notched very fast final fraction in debut; rebounds. Ruthless Alley gets favorable turnback in distance and makes peak start of form cycle; very playable. Duke Of Rutherford gets the meds for stateside debut; very interesting.

1 Tennis Racket(L) 114 Ortiz 6-3-3 Romans 8-1

7 Daddy's Wildcat(L) 118 Castellano 1-4-3 Levine 5-1

8 Ganador(L) 116 Maragh 4-5-3 Galluscio 4-1

Scotchirish packs solid late kick on best and hails from potent layoff stable. Tennis Racket also closes strongly and should be aided by probable pace dynamics. Ganador is fleet-footed and drops; must consider.

7 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $33,000.

1 Smarty Bull(L) 122 Lezcano 2-5-2 Servis 8-1

2 Laylaben(L) 122 Castellano 4-10-3 Brown 20-1

9 Scott's Aly Cat(L) 122 Castro 3-1-5 McLaughlin 5-1

10 Cass' Lady(L) 122 Alvarado 4-1-2 Reed 4-1

11 Dancin Perfect(L) 122 Cohen 6-5-4 Jacobson 6-1

12 Jolienne(L) 115 Ortiz 1-7-1 Guerrero 20-1

Also Eligible

13 Wise Harmony(L) 122 Castellano 2-1-9 Galluscio 3-1

14 To the Point(L) 122 Lopez 2-8-11 Donk 10-1

Jolienne was a fast-paced, wire-to-wire winner in the mud last time and could speed pop big turf field. Dancin Perfect has been sidelined since July but owns very fast late pace and final numbers; could easily romp if all is well. Bellarella is from a dam that's produced four turf winners; worth long look. Sotique, a winner last summer on Belmont sod, is right in the thick of this on best.

1 Thunder Harbor(L) 116 Maragh 7-4-2 Stidham 6-1

Main Track Only

10 Dehere of the Cat(L) 116 Dominguez 4-5-1 Trombetta 2-1

11 Wishingonastar(L) 121 Lezcano 7-3-4 Barker 7-2

12 Rock Star Charlie(L) 116 Garcia 2-1-2 Rice 3-1

Hooligan's Delight compiled five tightly grouped works for first start since October and Bob Barbara barn excels with fresh and rested runners. Megalithic should pack intensified late kick with cutback to 6 furlongs; price will be tempting. Barrel Of Love logged his only win on Belmont sod; don't ignore. On dirt: Dehere Of The Cat, Wishingonastar, Rock Star Charlie.8

7 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $74,000.

12 Isn't He Perfect(L) 122 No Rider 2-2-4 Dutrow, Jr 2-1

13 Mysticism(L) 122 Luzzi 1-4-1 Albertrani 8-1

14 Gallant Fields(L) 122 Castro 2-3-2 McLaughlin 3-1

Rogue Victory tallied swift numbers when a winner on Belmont grass last summer and now makes first start since moving to Rick Dutrow stable. Freudian Dilemma is fresh and working with a purpose at Fair Hill training center and could play out as the controlling speed; big-time threat. Yield Bogey is rested and notched fast-figured second off the bench last summer; worth a look. On dirt: Isn't He Perfect, Gallant Fields.9

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $50,000-$40,000. Purse: $45,000.

13 Beautiful One(L) 123 Velasquez 3-2-7 Rice 4-1

14 Archaelogist(L) 123 Cohen 2-4-6 Jacobson 9-5

Chessrate delivered her best effort when moved to Belmont sod last fall and filly is training sharply for comeback. Dynamic Star is speedy and could play out as the swiftest of the swift in first grass start; very playable, Vindicated Ghost drops and gets beneficial cutback to sprint; could easily take this. My Sweet Candy makes first start since claimed by Bruce Levine; right in the thick of this. On dirt: Archaelogist, Dynamic Star.Entries -- © 2012 Equibase Company LLC, all rights reserved
