8 Papa Charlie(L) 7-7-8 Migliore Saccardo 118 30-1

9 Hudson Heights(L) 1-1-2 Bisono O'Brien 120 20-1

10 That's Rich(L) 3-3-5 Cohen Autrey 118 4-1

Four Star General exits clear-cut victory in last and should handle class boost in current form. Extinguish was done in by hot pace in last but could easily lead these throughout. Afrikaner looms a big-time threat on best efforts.

6 Furlongs. Allowance Optional Claiming. 4&up. Purse: $44,000.

1 West Coast Flier(L) 1-6-7 Bisono Arroyo 118 12-1

2 The Prince(L) 5-7-1 Serpa Dutrow 113 6-1

3 Vicious Rapids(L) 3-4-4 Alvarado Ferraro 118 8-1

4 Brilliant Son(L) 1-2-8 Jara McLaughlin 123 3-1

5 Silent Valor(L) 7-4-8 Cohen Pletcher 118 4-1

6 Subtitles(L) 1-5-4 Napravnik Ryerson 123 5-1

7 Have You Ever(L) 1-3-1 Lopez Jacobson 123 5-2

Brilliant Son overcame stumbling start to win last and should have more to give in third start since 10-month layoff. Have You Ever owns speed, fast figures and sharp current form; likely short price is the knock. West Coast Flier is firing bullets for first start since 57-day freshener; don't ignore.

11/16 Mile. The WHIRLAWAY. 3yo. Purse: $100,000.

1 Turf Melody(L) 6-1-1 Napravnik Motion 122 8-1

2 Eightyfiveinafifty(L) 1-3-x Chavez Contessa 116 2-5

3 Peppi Knows(L) 2-1-3 Migliore Kreiser 120 15-1

4 Afleet Again(L) 1-5-3 Serpa Reid 118 30-1

5 Three Day Rush(L) 1-2-5 Cohen Pletcher 120 3-1

6 Papa's Nice Cat(L) 2-1-3 Luzzi Englehart 116 15-1

Three Day Rush ships up from south Florida after earning fast late pace figure in last; rates slight upset in interesting Whirlaway. Eightyfiveinafifty was ultra-impressive in last but is an unknown at two turns and will offer prohibitive price. Turf Melody exits Grade 3 at FG and starts from coveted rail; worth a look.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 3yo. NY Bred. Purse: $38,000.

2 Felice Di Notte(L) 5-x-x Lopez Sciacca 120 5-1

1a Showme Zealous(L1) x-x-x Jara Kazamias 120 12-1

9 Appledore(L1) 5-x-x Hill Duggan 120 12-1

Conflicted made good late run to land second in debut and meets field that's loaded with newcomers. Lubash shows a work tab that culminated with pair of swift 5-furlong drills; charting a must. Backcountry Boy should pack intensified kick with cutback to 6 furlongs.

6 Furlongs. Fillies and Mares. 4&up. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $13,000.

2 Jordanna Bananna(L) 8-10-4 Davis Tasso 113 50-1

4 Super Child(L) 4-1-6 Cohen Jacobson 118 5-2

5 Sumwhrovrtherainbw(L) 4-8-8 Lopez Badgett 118 7-2

6 Kiara(L) 7-9-7 Lopez Ortiz 108 30-1

7 Mama Brown(L) 8-3-2 Serpa Autrey 113 10-1

8 Divorce Court(L) 5-3-3 Napravnik Lostritto 118 8-1

9 Driven by Seattle(L) 3-8-3 Lopez Barbara 118 3-1

10 Private Screening(L) 4-2-3 Simpson Henry 111 20-1

Sumwhrovrtherainbw is training with a purpose for first start since October; rates timid call in bottom-level claimer. Read the Post raced against the grain of the bias in last and Pancho Martin barn is enjoying a renaissance; very interesting. Driven by Seattle takes suspicious drop but owns fast figures; mixed message.

6 Furlongs. 3yo. Maiden Claiming $25,000. NY Bred. Purse: $19,000.

1 My Pal Tom(L1) x-x-x Alvarado Conway 120 20-1

8 Tocco d'Oro(L) 2-10-x Napravnik Levine 120 3-1

9 Trial by Fire(L) 6-x-x Serpa Hernandez 115 15-1

10 Oneworld Onedream(L1) x-x-x Jara Ubillo 120 20-1

11 Holy Patron(L) 3-x-x Chavez Quick 120 7-2

12 Stylish Fella(L) 4-x-x Richards Galluscio 120 6-1

Also Eligible

13 Midnight Billy(L) 7-3-5 Santiago Ortiz 120 6-1

Holy Patron made a sustained rally when a good-looking third in debut and could receive nice setup in big field. Tocco d'Oro logged much-improved second with addition of Lasix last time and has trained sharply in the interim; logical, short-priced player. Prince Cody displayed zilch on New Year's Day but earned solid number in key race debut; rebound potential.

6 Furlongs. Claiming $10,000. 4&up. Purse: $14,000.

1 Global Effect(L) 4-9-5 Serpa Jacobson 115 4-1

2 Discreet Interview(L) 3-5-4 Musarro Ryerson 113 15-1

3 Millennium Jet(L) 5-7-2 Gracia Henry 110 15-1

4 Love of Life(L) 7-1-6 Perez Lotruglio 120 20-1

5 Bold Vindication(L) 6-7-4 Cohen Autrey 120 5-1

6 Carter's Store(L) 4-6-7 Chavez Contessa 120 5-1

7 Coney Island(L) 6-7-3 Migliore Saccardo 120 8-1

8 Millirock(L) 6-6-4 Lopez D'Alessandro 120 20-1

9 Brendan's Warrior(L) 7-2-6 Hill McGillycuddy 120 6-1

10 Gimmee Getme(L) 5-4-8 Lopez Martin, Sr. 120 30-1

11 Triple Glory(L) 2-2-4 Davis Barrera 115 7-2

Brendan's Warrior was compromised by bad start in last but earned fast late pace figure two starts back and logged two sharp works and adds blinkers; bounces back today. Carter's Store could prove very tough to catch on a soft lead; dangerous. Discreet Interview and Triple Glory could impact late if fractions get fast and furious.

6 Furlongs. Allowance. 4&up. NY Bred. Purse: $40,000.

1 Six Flings(L) 3-4-2 Serpa Callejas 113 6-1

3 Freudian Storm(L) 1-8-6 Chavez Contessa 120 5-2

4 Estimator(L) 5-5-6 Bocachica Grusmark 118 30-1

5 Scorch the Torch(L) 4-4-9 Santiago Hernandez 118 15-1

2 Kid Freud(L) 2-1-7 Cohen Autrey 118 7-2

6 Driven by Solar(L) 1-5-3 Jara Pletcher 118 2-1

7 Justin P(L) 6-5-9 Lopez Pringle 108 30-1

8 Roma Di Notte(L) 1-4-10 Lopez Sciacca 118 30-1

2b El Borracho(L) 6-1-3 Napravnik Dutrow 118 7-2

9 Crazy Charlie(L) 2-3-2 Lopez Aquilino 118 15-1

10 Chernobyl's Hero(L) 3-7-8 Studart Odintz 118 15-1

1a Ezzy(L) 2-1-9 Hill Callejas 120 6-1

Freudian Storm logged visually impressive maiden score in return from five-month absence last time and has trained strongly in the interim; more to come. Dubb entry: Kid Freud exits strong second in last and mate El Borracho bounced last time after fast-figured win in prior; potent pairing. Roma Di Notte packs a strong late kick and could be heard from in the lane at fat odds.

6 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 4&up. NY Bred. Purse: $38,000.

1 Lord Greystoke(L) 7-2-3 Napravnik Rice 122 3-1

2 Dixielore(L) 6-x-x Saez Martin, Sr. 122 20-1

3 Overtime Danny Boy(L) 8-x-x Bocachica Smalios 122 50-1

4 Ruling Decision(L) 4-5-6 Samyn Sedlacek 122 20-1

5 Spencerific(L) 3-3-3 Jara Cedano 122 12-1

6 Navajo Spirit(L) 9-9-11 Musarro Chin 115 50-1

7 One Turn Eddie(L) 3-6-x Fragoso Morrison 122 4-1

8 Ironman Jon(L1) x-x-x Hill Hushion 122 8-1

9 Virtues Under Fire(L) 2-7-3 Serpa Hills 117 9-2

10 Be Electric(L1) x-x-x Delgado Houghton 122 10-1

11 Ponte Vecchio(L) 6-x-x Cohen Weaver 122 6-1

12 Personal Worth(L) 8-4-6 Migliore Figueroa 122 12-1

Spencerific is 0-for-18, but returns from layoff with crisp 3-furlong blowout in tow and should offer best price potential in weak nightcap. Virtues Under Fire earned swift pace and final numbers when second to eighth race selection last month; lightly raced with room for continued development. Lord Greystoke is speedy, rested and starts from the fence; right in the thick of this. Ironman Jon debuts for Hushion; can't ignore.
