12 Know Sense(L) 118 No Rider 5-2-x Zito 4-1

Punctual Jeff owns field's fastest late pace figs and compiled strong work slate for first start in 94 days. Dendrite could prove a very tough customer on a soft lead. Coach Royal was game second in last; big-time threat.

5 R King of the Road(L) 123 Napravnik 1-1-3 Pletcher 9-5

R King of the Road has trained sharply since fast-figured, front-running score last month; more to come. Mysticism also owns speed and is fresh and rested; dangerous. Those Wer the Days owns an imposing 5-for-6 resume; contentious dash.

Main Track Only

9 Harbor Mist(L) 110 Prado 1-3-1 Serpe 3-1

Hessonite gets class relief and rider upgrade and packs potent stretch kick on best. Risky Rachel looms the dominant speed in turf debut; very playable. Rogue's Jewel always fires but loves to finish second.

10 Strategic Sue(L) 121 Espinoza 4-5-4 Morrison 12-1

American Trilogy makes first start with claiming tag and fired half-mile bullet work before last outing; call based on price potential. Glynisthemenance nothced improved pace number in last; very interesting. Deflate the Bubble could easily take this on best efforts.

10 Johannesburg Smile(L) 120 Castellano 2-2-3 Galluscio 2-1

Street Game is 3-for-3 on Belmont sod and fired 5-furlong bullet last Sunday; primed and ready. Pocket Cowboys will be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Compliance Officer is working strongly for first start since December and owns fast figs on 'A' game.

15 Passeporta(L) 118 No Rider 10-x-x Kimmel 4-1

16 Dem Aah Watch Meh(L) 118 Ortiz, Jr 5-6-8 Persaud 10-1

Bangzoomtothemoon tallied solid numbers on Belmont sod in fall of '10 and fired crisp half-mile drill since last start; weakness of field is selection's strength. Harpsichord is from a dam that's produced two turf winners and could play out as the main speed in grass debut. Giving Me Fitz should pack intensified wallop with cutback to 6 furlongs; worth long look. Chubbalita's Joy could land in exotics at fat number.

16 Class Action Suit(L) 116 Ortiz, Jr 3-4-1 Badgett, Jr 8-1

Inimitable Romanee logged two stamina-building works since top-figured placing in last. Wholelottashakin was less than two lengths behind top selection after stumbling at the start in last; big-time danger. Read the Signs could prove tough to collar on an unchallenged lead.

1 So Fashion(L) 116 Garcia 2-3-6 Jerkens 15-1

10 Dontrainonmyparade 118 Lezcano x-x-x Kelly 30-1

11 Thescreenisred(L) 118 Castellano 2-x-x Brown 9-2

Jitney made sustained middle move in debut last fall and is training with a purpose for return. Thescreenisred fired sharp 5-furlong drill since strong second in debut; very dangerous. Paper Plane could play out as the controlling speed; big-time threat. Cinematize (Tony Dutrow) and Hermosura (Alan Goldberg) are newcomers that must be respected if money shows.
