6 Buddys Dream(L) 116 Ortiz, Jr 4-8-5 Martin, Sr. 20-1

6 Karakorum Budman(L) 123 Espinoza 3-1-2 Odintz 15-1

Karakorum Budman's late kick was compromised when attempting longer sprint last time; amplified wallop at 6 furlongs. Fight For V L T's owns fast figures and makes first start with restricted claiming tag; could easily take this. Mystic Era was a game second at 63-1 last time; dangerous.

6 Laylaben(L) 121 Velasquez 7-3-4 Schosberg 5-1

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Maiden Claiming $35,000. NY Bred. Purse: $23,000.

7 Thelampisnotguilty(L) 118 Hill 9-4-x Schosberg 5-2

Bustin Rocks takes potent class drop after speed and fade in debut; controlling frontrunner. Thelampisnotguilty drops and goes turf to dirt; very interesting. Rocky Fortune is riding an improving line on the numbers and makes peak start for form cycle; worth long look.

12 Eltish Star(L) 121 Prado 2-3-2 Ortiz 5-2

1a Crepe Au Sucre(L) 121 Lopez 1-4-6 Kelly 15-1

Targhee Pass spun his wheels in the slop last time, but logged two of his three lifetime wins on Belmont sod; proper footing is the key. Pegasus Tommy D. is also a two-time winner on Belmont grass and should be tighter in second start since eight-month layoff; very dangerous. Green Bluff was game second in last at Atlantic City; more than good enough on 'A' game. On dirt: Stand Proud, Whateverittakes.

13 Dallaglio(L) 118 Solis 4-x-x Duggan 3-1

Magnificent Moon tallied swift final fraction when third in turf debut last time; more to come. Caneros could play out as the main speed in grass debut; very playable. Break The Glass hails from the white-hot Alan Goldberg barn; must consider. On dirt: Magnificent Moon, Indigene Charm.

1a Wise Stop(L) 121 No Rider 7-5-1 Rodriguez 3-1

13 Sam Sparkle(L) 116 No Rider 4-3-1 Contessa 6-1

I've Got Speed notched very rapid final fraction when a handy winner last month on Big A turf and razor-sharp 9-year-old gelding owns six wins on Belmont grass. Voodoo Storm should pack enhanced stretch kick with turn back to 7 furlongs; dangerous. Go Richie Go was a fast-figured winner in last; don't dismiss. On dirt: I Ain't No Saint, Sam Sparkle.

2b Liston(L) 121 Garcia 3-3-7 McLaughlin 2-1

Solvent tallied two of three career wins on Belmont sod, is working with a purpose for first start since September and consistently logs field's fastest late pace figures. Roddickton is riding a two-race winning streak; razor-sharp and very playable. Capital Market was a hard-charging winner in lone start on Belmont turf; right in the thick of this. On dirt: Royal Straight, Roddickton.

9

1 Mile. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $26,000.

12 Seeing Clearly(L) 123 Solis 3-3-5 Morrison 12-1

13 Landlash(L) 123 No Rider 4-4-5 Gyarmati 12-1

Much Fanfare was a dominant winner in the mud last Thursday and is equally effective on grass; pairs up. Rage Of Aquarius makes first start since claimed by crafty barn (Walder); very interesting. It's Not For Love is the one that must be caught; speed always warrants respect. Bobs Pinup Girl was a clear-cut second in last; logical, short-priced player. Australis Princess is rested and owns fast figures on 'A' game. On dirt: Much Fanfare, Spring Elusion.
