6 Mark My Style(L) 120 Velasquez 2-8-5 Toscano, Jr 7-2

The Catmancan was speed sharpened last out and packs potent late kick on best. Crown the Kitten fired half-mile bullet for first start in 74 days. Dominic's Smile is speedy and 3-for-3 on Belmont sod; big-time threat.

1a Deep Consideration(L) 121 Saez 5-4-3 Toscano, Jr 5-2

Main Track Only

9 Augie's Coming(L) 121 Franco 6-x-x Gargan 5-1

Deep Consideration was a tough-trip fifth in last; crisp half-mile work on Oct. 6 seals the deal. Jazz Player owns speed and is bred to improve with switch to sod; worth long look. Irish Cat was a clear-cut second behind a much-the-best winner last time; very dangerous.

3

6 Got Winged(L) 121 Lezcano 2-10-1 Dini 6-1

Got Winged tallied improved final fraction when second last time; more to give. Spartan Emperor exits fast-figured, front-end score; dangerous. Stay Tuned has logged solid numbers in all five starts; right in the thick of this.

4

6 Furlongs. Claiming $16,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $28,000.

1 Enduring Touch(L) 114 Cancel 2-2-9 Terranova,II 8-1

7 Sonora(L) 119 Castellano 6-4-2 Kenneally 5-2

8 Tia Lana(L) 121 Trujillo 6-3-1 Barbara 20-1

Sonora is speedy, rested and training forwardly. Tachiello gets class relief but has failed three straight times as the favorite; you've been warned. Enduring Touch has finished second in last two starts; must consider.

5

Main Track Only

2 Make the Moment(L) 122 No Rider 2-7-2 Baker 5-2

4 Sun and Moon(L) 122 Ortiz 4-1-4 Englehart 3-1

Spectacular Me owns a win and a second in two starts on Belmont grass; rates close call. Hillhouse High also loves Belmont turf and owns fast late pace figures on best efforts; very playable. Scatcapade has trained sharply since winning at the Spa on Aug. 23; must respect.

6

Main Track Only

2 Dannie's Deceiver(L) 120 Rosario 2-4-7 Cannizzo 6-5

Red Guard owns swift final fractions and is training with a purpose for first start in 320 days. Infinite Wisdom has finished second in both starts this year; continues trend? Liam's Prince was a tough-trip second in last at Mth; price will be tempting.

7

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). Claiming $25,000. 3&up. Purse: $34,000.

Main Track Only

15 Combat Diver(L) 112 Cancel 2-4-4 Maker 5-2

16 G R's Giant(L) 117 Alvarado 4-7-6 Baker 9-2

Broughton Kitten notched improved late pace figure in last on Big M sod; needs scratches to get in. Gym Too owns sprinter's speed and will prove very tough on an unchallenged lead. Mohican Chief delivers strong efforts with machine-like consistency. Smokey Brown could impact at big ticket if pace meltdown ensues.

8

1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf). Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $85,000.

1 Runway Giant(L) 120 Franco 5-5-2 Rodriguez 12-1

10 Run of the River(L) 120 Castellano,Jr 6-6-8 McGaughey III 6-1

Main Track Only

2 Natalie Victoria(L) 120 No Rider 2-2-5 Jacobson 5-2

My Sweet Girl gets favorable cutback in distance and should pack amplified stretch wallop. Hope Cross is working sharply for Chad Brown and owns fast figs on 'A' game; logical, short-priced player. Run of the River logs solid final fractions on best efforts; don't ignore.

9

6 1/2 Furlongs. 2yo. Fillies. Maiden Claiming $40,000. NY Bred. Purse: $41,000.

Also Eligible

13 Bustin Hearts(L) 119 Lezcano 5-x-x Levine 8-1

14 Wiredancer(L) 119 Rosario 3-x-x Nicks 5-2

15 Madame Maybry(L1) 119 Ortiz, Jr 2-x-x Weaver 2-1

16 Champagne Therapy(L) 119 Alvarado 8-7-x Schosberg 10-1

Eye Candy drops into maiden claimer and moves to dirt after middle move and flatten in debut; improvement predicted. Queens Tiara, another that never threatened in debut on turf, has logged three tight works for surface switch; very interesting. Wiredancer failed as the favorite in debut but must be factored into the mix if able to escape AE list. Madame Maybry, also on the AE list, adds blinkers and gets Lasix after game placing in debut; logical player.
