13 Nodebtdanny(L) 118 No Rider 5-5-6 Rodriguez 6-1

So Royal owns speed and makes first start with a maiden claiming tag. Bounty Pink moves to turf in first start since claimed by Linda Rice; big-time threat. Ivanovna could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues.

6 Lunar Surge 118 Velazquez x-x-x Weaver 8-1

7 Make It Anywhere(L) 118 Maragh 3-7-x Brown 5-2

6 Copper Forest(L) 122 Saez 2-1-5 Baker 5-1

7 Junior Officer(L) 119 Rodriguez 1-5-3 Rodriguez 8-1

Anaphylaxis tallied swift final fraction when a game second in last and was fast-figured winner in prior. Copper Forest will prove a very tough customer on a soft lead. Modern Child returns to dirt and owns fast figures on 'A' game.

4

6 Furlongs. Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. Purse: $76,000.

1 Saturday's Charm(L) 122 Alvarado 2-1-3 Asmussen 6-5

4 Head Heart Hoof(L) 122 Rosario 3-3-1 Rodriguez 5-1

5 Smash(L) 122 Saez 3-4-5 Baffert 4-1

Star Harbour is fresh and projects as the main speed. Leave of Absence packs solid late kick and looms the prime beneficiary if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Saturday's Charm also closes strong and would be aided by fast splits.

5

11 Regiment 118 Saez 3-x-x Albertrani 7-2

Federal Agent has trained strongly since pace and trip compromised in last. For the Ages, another that's worked sharply since last start, packs solid late kick on best. Hardest Core returns from freshener and gets Lasix; very interesting.

6

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). Maiden Claiming $20,000. 3&up. Purse: $29,000.

1 Qahr(L) 118 Alvarado 9-6-x McLaughlin 4-1

10 Fluent(L) 118 Rosario 2-6-7 Maker 2-1

Main Track Only

11 Market Blaster(L) 118 No Rider 10-7-7 Badgett, Jr 3-1

Muscles Marinara gets class relief and could be primed for breakthrough in third start since 10-month layoff. Lion Aint Easy fired two bullet works since clear-cut second at this level in last. Fluent returns to turf after second to a repeat winner in most recent; right in the thick of this.

7

8 Victoryat Last(L) 122 Ortiz 4-5-5 Grusmark 12-1

9 Nonnie Connie(L) 116 Ortiz, Jr 5-6-2 Galluscio 4-1

Jazzington bested a next-out winner en route to game score last out; more to give in third start of form cycle. Keep Bustin owns sprinter's speed and could capitalize on unchallenged lead. Victoryat Last packs a potent stretch wallop on 'A' game.

11 Arc Above(L) 122 Lezcano 2-4-4 Clement 6-1

Main Track Only

12 Bobby Flay(L) 122 No Rider 5-6-3 Gullo 6-1

Mills logged four tight works since making sustained rally to win last on Kee sod; more to come. Odeon tallied solid late pace figures in three starts in SoCal; dangerous. Ruthless Alley chased a dominant front-running winner in last and could receive softer flow today.

Main Track Only

14 My Sparky(L) 122 No Rider 6-4-1 Weaver 2-1

15 Lily Lynn(L) 122 Ortiz 2-6-4 Rodriguez 5-2

Missysmoonlitmagic is rested and could play out as the controlling speed off the bench. Centrina owns six wins on Belmont sod and is training with a purpose for first start since December; strong late kick on best. Here's D'bride is another that closes sharply on 'A' efforts. Chick in Slacks tallied both lifetime wins on Belmont turf; don't ignore if able to escape AE list.
