Conquest Curlinate earned fast late pace figure when making sustained rally in Illinois Derby last time; rates close call. Tiz Shea D has logged swift numbers in all three starts; very dangerous. Madefromlucky faced American Pharoah in last two starts; big-time player.

10Bridget Moloney(L)122Garcia3-2-7DiPrima10-1

Darling Bridezilla gets class hike after front-running score in last; more to give. Wise Awake owns speed and drops; dangerous. Colonel Juanita could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues.

7Discreet Marq(L)119Velazquez3-1-6Clement2-1

Caroline Thomas should pack amplified late wallop with cutback in distance; call based on price. Testa Rossi is 1-for-1 on Belmont turf and is training with a purpose for first start in 55 days. Photo Call could play out as the controlling speed in compact field.

Broadway Bay compiled closely grouped work tab for first start since two-month freshener; primed and ready. Rectify tallied solid final fraction when breaking maiden last out; very playable. Global Positioning should be aided by today's shorter trip.

12Rock Eagle(L)117Maragh4-x-xTagg4-1

Also Eligible

13Steel Sky(L)117Cancel8-6-2Nunn15-1


Veya was pace and position compromised when a better-than-it-looks fifth last out; more to give. Tiz Afleet moves to turf for Bill Mott after firing half-mile bullet on April 24. Lone Trader returns to grass and makes peak start of form cycle; price will be tempting. Infinite Midnight debuts for Chad Brown and is from a dam that's produced two turf winners; must consider. Steel Sky must be factored into the mix if able to escape AE list.
