6 Bossy Saratoga(L) 119 Franco 1-5-5 Morley 8-1

Angel Code tallied swift internal and final figs when breaking maiden in last at Prx; more to come. Wraith could be in the garden spot if top selection hits the wall in the lane. Bossy Saratoga was a determined winner in last and fired half-mile bullet on Sept. 6; right in the thick of this.

8 Dattts Da Boss(L) 120 Rice 3-2-9 Toscano, Jr 4-1

Barbara's Smile gets class relief and should back amplified kick at 7 furlongs. William'sluckygray is speedy and shorter trip should play to strength. Share 'n Stone would be aided by hot fractions.

7 Spa City Fever(L) 121 Velasquez 2-5-7 Jacobson 8-1

Big Business was a game second in Forego at Spa and is five-time winner at Belmont Park. Saratoga Snacks needed last and is more than good enough on 'A' game. Beautyinthepulpit is training with a purpose for first start in 51 days; price will be tempting.

1 Moe Man(L) 124 No Rider 4-3-8 Contessa 8-5

1a Conspiracy(L) 122 No Rider 3-1-3 Contessa 8-5

Cheyenne Nation is rested, training sharply and owns field's fastest late pace figures. Mia Poppy owns sprinter's speed and could prove tough on a soft lead. Happy Fella should possess enhanced kick with cutback to mile.

6 La Verdad(L) 118 Ortiz 5-5-1 Rice 6-1

Willet regressed in last after top-figured victory in prior; rebounds. Artemis Agrotera bested top selection by nearly eight lengths when winning Ballerina on Aug. 23 and fired two bullet workouts in the interim; very playable. La Verdad is fleet-footed and 3-for-3 at Belmont Park; serious contender.

Also Eligible

11 Southeast Asia(L) 120 Bravo 3-5-4 Quartarolo 20-1

Dubai Sky tallied rapid late pace figure when a tough-trip third in debut; more to give. Southeast Asia ships in from SoCal and must be factored into the mix if able to escape AE list. Escondido compiled seven tight works since wide trip in debut on July 11; worth long look. Made in Detroit is from a dam that's produced two turf winners; follow the money. Sanad makes first start for Christophe Clement; must be considered.
