6 Saint Honore(L) 119 Nakatani 3-5-x Zito 5-2

8 Readytodefer(L) 120 Bravo 4-x-x Miceli 7-2

Bizarroworld showed good early foot when a clear-cut second behind a runaway winner in debut; more to come. Readytodefer was an even fourth behind top selection and fired swift 5-furlong breeze in the interim; could easily close the gap. Raytessa is working consistently for first start; charting a must.

15 Blue Sixty Four(L) 120 NA 4-7-10 O'Brien 12-1

Magic Box has trained with a purpose since making three-wide rally in debut. City Scamper bounced in last after strong third in prior; very dangerous on the rebound. Strikealinethruit will pack amplified kick with cutback to 7 furlongs; big-time danger. Drinksonthehouse should improve with return to turf.

15 Leonessa(L) 123 Velazquez 1-3-3 Hills 8-1

16 Katy's Office Girl(L) 121 Dominguez 2-2-4 Rice 5-1

J C's Queen failed to show best on dirt last time but logged only lifetime win on Belmont sod and should get game back with return to grass. Saucy Jade owns fast figures but drops in first start for new barn; mixed message. Hoopskirt was a determined maiden winner in last; right in the thick of this. Lakeside Chapel could impact if fractions get fast and furious.

Also Eligible:

1a Baby Bananas(L1) 120 Chavez x-x-x Callejas 20-1

Texas Josh displayed improved speed in last and could play out as the controlling front-runner with return to turf. Gossip Column was fast-figured second in lone grass outing; very dangerous. Winston C gets class and distance relief; right in the thick of this.

11 Key Victory(L) 121 Smith 9-6-3 Hertler 30-1

12 Check the Cites(L) 118 Castro 9-2-1 Rice 20-1

Grey Foose notched rapid internal numbers when a wire-to-wire winner in last and could transfer razor-sharp current form to turf. Barrel Of Love tallied swift final fractions in last two starts in shorter sprints and could be aided by today's additional sixteenth. Turn Up The Music logged three tightly grouped workouts since easy score in most recent; very playable.

10 Shatoosh(L) 117 Bravo 5-2-1 Matz 15-1

11 Arch Support(L) 117 Cohen 5-1-4 Contessa 4-1

Hessonite is 1-for-1 on Belmont grass and has trained sharply since confident victory in last at Spa; ready for prime time. Ruthenia is a two time winner on Belmont sod and packs strong late kick and makes peak start of form cycle. My Redbyrd owns fast late pace and final figures; dangerous.

15 Premium Wine(L) 121 Dominguez 6-1-1 Dutrow 2-1

16 Never Right Joey(L) 118 Velazquez 4-1-6 Pletcher 3-1

Structural Change is 2-for-2 on Belmont grass and rates close call based on price potential in wide-open nightcap. Big Jerome is a four-time winner on Belmont sod; more than good enough on 'A' game. Wascally Rabbit earned improved pace figure in last start and tallied most recent victory this course and trip at Spring/Summer meeting. Keechi Bullet makes first start since claimed by capable connections; don't dismiss.
