15 Nykid Time to Jazz(L) 114 Ortiz, Jr 7-9-6 Shivmangal 15-1

Winloc's John Lee was compromised by pace and post on Opening Day at Spa; Belmont's one-turn mile on Widener could suit perfectly. Sound Of Drums tallied improved internal and final numbers on dirt last time; don't ignore. Doublespeak finished second in last two; must consider. Carson Bandit is another that was second in last two starts; logical player. On dirt: This Hard Land, Sound Of Drums.
