7 Deal Casino(L1) 120 Bravo x-x-x Kimmel 6-1

14 Malibu Artiste(L) 121 Cohen 3-5-1 Contessa 6-1

15 Pretty Cozzy(L) 121 Castellano 1-1-2 Englehart 3-1

Sounds Of The City tallied swift final fraction when a winner in first turf start and should receive ideal setup in big field. Battingstar is fleet-footed and gets class relief; very dangerous. Settling Seas should be aided by cutback to 6 furlongs. On dirt: Pretty Cozy, Lynnette, Sounds Of The City.3

61/2 Furlongs. 2yo. Fillies. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $50,000.

1 Brilliant Autumn(L) 120 Garcia 3-x-x McLaughlin 5-2

5 Lead Me On(L) 120 Castellano 2-x-x Hennig 3-1

6 Miss Suwanee 120 Bravo x-x-x Ritvo 8-1

Black And White chased fast fractions and faded in debut and logged two eye-catching, endurance-building drills this month. Lead Me On earned swift number when a pole clear for second in first start; could easily take this. Fashion's Flight could be the beneficiary if pace meltdown ensues.

6 Furlongs. 2yo. Fillies. NY Bred. Maiden Claiming $25,000. Purse: $22,000.

7 Sleeping Star(L) 120 Studart 6-8-x Ronen 30-1

8 Sienna Rain(L1) 120 Nakatani x-x-x Contessa 8-1

Cat On The Island drops after showing improved speed in last; rates timid call. Flavor Girl bested top selection by 13 lengths when third as the favorite in last; logical. Quetzalli hails from potent first-out stable; right in the thick of this. On dirt: Cat On The Island, Flavor Girl, QuetZalli.5

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $26,000.

1 Celtic Chant(L) 118 Lezcano 1-2-1 Englehart 8-1

13 Turned to Gold(L) 121 Husbands 6-1-1 Baker 8-1

14 Iberian Gate(L) 121 Lopez 2-5-5 DeMola 10-1

Sotique bested a next-out winner en route to a surging score last out; more to give. System Ready returns to turf after fast-figured, front-running victory in most recent; big-time danger. Sunnybrook has won two straight for Rudy Rodriguez; be no surprise. On dirt: Speckledbird, Sotique, System Ready.6

11/16 Miles. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $21,000.

15 Stud Muffin(L) 121 Cohen 1-3-1 Jacobson 9-5

16 The Roundhouse(L) 121 Lezcano 5-5-6 Persaud 8-1

Midnite Silver is a four-time winner on the Belmont turf and consistently logs the field's fastest late pace figures. Smart Enuf is riding an improving line on the numbers and now gets class relief; dangerous. Majestictroubadour ships in and owns competitive numbers on best; don't dismiss. On dirt: Equivocation, Stud Muffin, One Starry Nite.7

11/16 Miles. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $21,000.

14 There Goes Molly(L) 117 Lezcano 3-3-6 Persaud 8-1

15 Wise Choice(L) 116 Ortiz, Jr 2-7-6 Sciacca 6-1

Wise Harmony drops and switches back to sod and should be favorably positioned near the front in big field. Queen Of Protocol closes strongly on best and will be aided by class drop and return to turf; very playable. Mordecai Jones was a determined winner at this level on dirt last time and is equally effective on grass; must consider. On dirt: Miss Tequila, Wise Harmony, There Goes Molly.8

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Claiming $35,000. Purse: $30,000.

1 Expecting Cash(L) 118 Nakatani 3-1-7 Asmussen 3-1

2 War Colony(L) 118 Castellano 2-1-7 Domino 6-1

3 Ultimo Principe(L) 118 Lezcano 5-5-1 Brown 12-1

7 David the Great(L) 118 Cohen 4-3-1 Jacobson 5-1

8 Running Tap(L) 113 Ortiz, Jr 1-4-1 DiPrima 20-1

9 Awesome Arceno(L) 118 Dominguez 6-3-6 Dutrow, Jr 8-1

Black N Beauty chased hot fractions in last and should be sitting on best in third start of new form cycle. Expecting Cash packs potent late kick and will be sitting in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Sensational Slam failed to fire in slop last time but could prove far more formidable with return to dry land.

10 Rajadesaminaux(L) 122 Lezcano 5-2-8 Rice 6-1

11 Time Marches On 118 Maragh 9-4-x Englehart 20-1

Casa Tua returns to turf after setting very fast pace and paying the price on dirt last time; pair of crisp half-mile works in the interim seals the deal. Rajadesaminaux logged solid final fraction when a tough-trip fifth in grass debut; very dangerous. Seamless earned good numbers in two most recent grass starts; worth long look. An Absolute Ten is fresh and makes first start with maiden-claiming tag; right in the thick of this. On dirt: Rajadesaminaux, Casa Tua, Datts Appealing.Entries -- © 2011 Equibase Company LLC, all rights reserved
