Vicksburg Bluffs earned improved internal figures in last and now makes first start with claiming tag.

9 Perfect Disco(L) 113 Rodriguez 6-2-7 Gullo 7-2

Artemus Paperboy wheels back in a hurry after clear-cut maiden win on Sept. 17; more to come. Perfect Disco owns speed, needed last and can prove a serious front-end threat on best. Patty and Nooche drops and could be in the garden spot if pace meltdown ensues.

11 Unbridled Sonya(L) 120 Rosario 5-x-x Cannizzo 6-1

Stormy Sky logged three tight works on turf since speed and fade in dirt debut; call in juvenile grass puzzler. Kibble adds blinkers and moves to sod; wakeup potential. Nejma was an even sixth in first turf start; price will be tempting.

8 Liam's Map(L) 120 Velazquez 2-x-x Pletcher 8-5

Warrior's Hero fired half-mile bullet since logging improved pace figure in last; more to give. Flat Jack returns from 54-day freshener after pairing up fast-figured seconds in most recent two starts; could easily take this. Liam's Map was a clear-cut second in debut; be no surprise.

Hillhouse High tallied both career wins on Belmont sod and compiled five tight works for return to favorite footing; very dangerous.

16 On a Snowy Evening(L) 120 Alvarado 5-4-9 Adsit 5-1

Traipse in Utopia fired half-mile bullet since displaying improved speed in last; set for breakthrough. Chrissy Girl makes third start since yearlong layoff and packs potent late kick on best efforts; very dangerous. La Reverie is from a dam that's produced two turf winners; very interesting. Senso was a hard-charging second in last and must be factored into the mix if able to escape AE list.
