6 Springcourt(L) 121 Franco 1-4-2 Contessa 4-1

7 Box Office(L) 119 Ortiz 4-2-2 Servis 5-2

Springcourt wheels back in a hurry for new barn (Gary Contessa) after determined score on Sunday; more to come. M J Plus was pace compromised in last; more than good enough on 'A' game. Box Office owns speed and fast final figs; big-time player.

6 1/2 Furlongs. Claiming $12,500. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $25,000.

7 Midnightinpositano(L) 114 Vallellanes 8-7-5 Barrera, III 20-1

Go Olivia Go drops in first start since claimed by David Jacobson; fast numbers on best efforts. Midnightinpositano is training sharply and can prove to be a front-end threat on 'A' game. Wild Kay owns two wins and a third in three starts on Belmont loam; right in the thick of this.

6 Goodnewsisnonews(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 7-5-2 Asmussen 2-1

7 Cosmic Coincidence(L) 113 Rodriguez 3-3-5 Gullo 5-2

Cosmic Coincidence pulls from five to 10 pounds from the field and projects as the main speed with aggressive ride. Goodnewsisnonews gets class relief and owns fast final figures; very dangerous. Grandpa Len makes quick return after even sixth in the slop on Saturday; don't ignore.

4

10 Kibble 120 Ortiz, Jr 5-7-x Jerkens 5-1

11 Birkenhead(L) 120 Velazquez 7-6-x Donk 4-1

Arctic Ocean tallied improved early pace figure in last after logging solid final fraction in debut; switch to sod should play to strength. Birkenhead gets rider upgrade and makes first start with maiden claiming; big-time threat. Hail Cornell is training strongly for first start in 46 days; very dangerous.

7 Furlongs. Claiming $20,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $40,000.

1 My Tee Time(L) 116 Rodriguez 3-6-1 Rodriguez 6-1

7 Purling(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 3-5-1 Barbara 10-1

8 Rosie My Way(L) 119 Franco 5-5-3 Orseno 8-1

9 Matching Skies(L) 119 Velazquez 2-3-4 Adsit 10-1

Guayana turns back to 7 furlongs and should pack amplified late kick at generous ticket. My Tee Time looms the main speed on the rail in first start since claimed by Rudy Rodriguez; dangerous. E Z Passer is riding a four-race winning streak; right in the thick of this.

2 Tigah(L) 121 Bravo 3-10-2 Quartarolo 8-1

1a Depeche Chat(L, AE) 119 Ortiz, Jr 1-4-8 Jacobson 20-1

13 Metaurus(L, MTO) 119 Franco 6-2-5 Sciacca 10-1

Depeche Chat notched swift late pace and final figs when winning last; call if able to escape AE list. Sharp Omar fired 5-furlong bullet last week and owns late-running style that should be well served in probable pace dynamics. Hard Enough was pace and trip compromsied in last at Lrl; must consider. Mr. Vegas drops and owns fast back numbers; worth long look. Readthebyline is a front-running threat on best.

15 Very Accomplished(L) 120 Castellano 4-3-4 Baker 5-1

16 Brad's Ruby(L) 120 Ortiz 1-5-2 Englehart 4-1

Aesthetique makes peak start of form cycle and should pack intensified wallop at 6 furlongs; call based on price potential. Official is fresh and could be in the garden spot if front-end meltdown ensues. Given Fire is speedy and can prove very tough on a soft lead.

1 Testosterstone(L) 118 Rice 1-4-5 Kelly 30-1

Main Track Only

12 Sol the Freud(L) 118 No Rider 4-1-5 Cannizzo 3-1

13 Goodtolook(L) 121 No Rider 4-3-3 Contessa 4-1

2b Bluegrass Flash(L) 120 Ortiz, Jr 1-3-3 Clement 5-1

Pretension logged front-end victories in last two starts and now makes first outing since reclaimed by Gary Contessa; call in ultra-contentious race. Strong Impact gets class relief and owns swift final numbers on best; very dangerous. Lord of Love compiled three tight works for first start since July 24 and owns fast final fractions on best efforts; worth long look at long price. Testosterstone fired 3-furlong bullet on Monday; odds will be tempting.

1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf). Maiden Special Weight. 2yo. Fillies. NY Bred. Purse: $60,000.

1 Congress Park(L) 120 Castellano 2-x-x Brown 5-2

2 Battle Axe(L) 120 Bravo 7-2-3 Contessa 10-1

3 Cosmic Tale(L) 120 Luzzi 4-5-x Baker 20-1

10 Truly Posseble(L1) 120 Franco x-x-x Donk 12-1

11 Courageisamajority 120 Velazquez 6-x-x Motion 4-1

12 Fourstar Crook(L1) 120 Ortiz, Jr x-x-x Brown 5-1

Also Eligible

13 Palm Beach Shirley(L) 113 Worrie 9-6-x Contessa 30-1

Main Track Only

14 Conga Tune(L) 120 No Rider 6-x-x Donk 6-1

Loon River owns sprinter's speed and could play out as the controlling front-runner at longer trip. Congress Park was a clear-cut second in debut; could easily take this. Battle Axe regressed in last after game placing in prior; rebound potential. Courageisamajority should improve with added ground and race under belt.
