9 Redhotlion(L) 118 Bravo 6-3-x Alexander 15-1

Willy Pay needed last, logged crisp half-mile in the interim and should be aided by added ground. Prince Arion makes first start with maiden claiming tag and fired half-mile bullet on Belmont training track; very playable. Sokitumi Samurai tallied improved final fraction when second last time at Keeneland; dangerous.

1a Hurricane Heat(L) 121 No Rider 2-5-7 Sciacca 20-1

Ziptronic tallied rapid final fraction when a tough-trip third in last start; more to give in second outing since four-month layoff. Winaholic is fresh and logs fast late pace figures on best; big-time player. Tawaared drops and will prove very tough on a soft lead. Red Leader was a game winner at this level in last; must consider.

14 Readygetsgold(L) 122 Castellano 4-3-5 Bush 5-1

Simple Exchange drops one level after tallying improved final fraction when third last out; amplified kick at 6 furlongs. More Than Minted owns speed and could play out as the controlling front-runner. Glynisthemenace makes first start with restricted claiming tag.

5 Her Smile(L) 122 Castellano 6-3-3 Brown 7-5

Her Smile is training strongly for first start in 53 days and delivered career best effort after similar layoff. Aquitania made four-wide move when a clear-cut second in Pimlico stakes last out; dangerous. Belle Of The Hall owns three wins at 6 1/2-furlong trip; very interesting.

15 So Much Heart(L) 121 Davis 5-6-3 Reiff 12-1

16 Bedda Regina(L) 116 Maragh 1-6-3 Brown 3-1

Proud Siren returns to turf and should receive ground-saving trip from rail; weakness of field is selection's strength. Miss Libby can prove to be a very tough customer on an unchallenged lead. Katy's Office Girl could impact if pace meltdown ensues. Skips Prospect logged only win on Belmont sod; more than good enough on 'A' game.
