7 Repenthouse(L) 4-7-7 Jara Arroyo 120 12-1

8 Graceful Moment(L1) x-x-x Garcia Mattis 110 30-1

9 Cheers Darling(L1) x-x-x Napravnik Trombetta 119 7-2

Kittylicious' late running style could provide edge in field that's loaded with newcomers. Razzlemedazzleme held nearly two lengths to the good on top selection last time, but coughed clear lead in the lane; mixed message. Cheers Darling compiled bullet-riddled work tab for debut; charting a must.

10 Divorce Court(L) 7-7-3 Jara Lostritto 120 20-1

1a Sister's Speed(L) 3-5-3 Napravnik Contessa 119 7-2

She's Smokin Hot won under wraps last month at FL and could be ready for prime time at fat price. Iberian Gate was tough-trip second in last; big-time player. Sister's Speed is riding an improving line on pace and final figures; right in the thick of this.

6 Furlongs. Claiming $25,000. 3&up. Purse: $22,000

1 Cires(L) 2-5-8 Velasquez Brown 120 7-5

2 Itch(L) 3-3-6 Davis Ronen 115 20-1

3 Beyond Challenge 12-6-8 Jara Morrison 121 30-1

9 Driven by Royal(L) 6-7-5 Lopez Hull 120 20-1

10 Bachhaus(L) 3-5-5 Cohen Duggan 120 5-1

Pewter fired half-mile bullet since tough-trip in return last month and gelding owns fast back figures. Bachhaus ships in from Canada and should pack amplified punch with cutback to 6 furlongs. Cires was second behind a runaway winner in last; serious contender.

6 Furlongs. Claiming $20,000-$18,000. 3&up. Purse: $30,000.

1 Mr. Madison(L) 7-4-2 Napravnik Contessa 120 6-1

2 Mr. Dr. Professor(L) 6-3-6 DeSouza Alvarez 119 30-1

3 Seneca Summer(L) 4-1-1 Cohen Autrey 121 2-1

5 Wolfson(L) 1-9-5 Velasquez Jacobson 120 3-1

6 Hubbard(L) 7-3-2 Rodriguez Coffey 120 12-1

7 Natural Speed(L) 6-2-5 Bocachica Arroyo 118 12-1

8 Straight Romance(L) 9-3-5 Davis Ferraro 115 20-1

9 Banking Holiday(L) 2-7-4 Bisono Ramos 118 5-1

10 The Vin Man(L) 5-2-3 Serpa Ubillo 115 10-1

Wolfson was convincing winner in last and should have more to give in second start of new form cycle. Banking Holiday, an inner-track lover, exits rough-trip placing at a mile last time and will possess heightened kick with turn back to sprint; very playable. Mr. Dr. Professor logged improved pace figure in last and will offer juicy odds; worth a look.

11 Gold for Peace(L) 2-7-x Bocachica Smalios 121 15-1

12 Classroom Legend(L) 9-4-x Napravnik Contessa 121 15-1

Ruling Decision earned fast late pace figure after wide trip in last and lightly raced 3-year-old gelding has yet to take a backward step on the numbers. Mr. Grievance is training with a purpose for first start in more than a year; big-time danger. Regal Coyote is another that's working consistently for first start since long layoff; very playable in first outing versus NY breds.

6 Furlongs. Allowance. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $43,000.

1 Mel's Gold(L) 8-1-5 Davis Hertler 114 30-1

2 Estimator(L) 3-1-3 Bocachica Grusmark 120 15-1

3 Next Day(L) 2-2-1 Cohen Persaud 119 15-1

4 Won Great Classic(L) 11-7-4 Hill Brown 119 15-1

5 Fiddlers Patriot(L) 4-1-2 Castellano Weaver 122 2-1

6 Mr. Enrico 9-9-1 Samyn Ortiz 119 20-1

7 Justin P(L) 3-5-6 Husbands Pringle 120 10-1

8 Puregoodniss(L) 2-4-2 Velasquez Imperio 119 3-1

9 Temore(L) 3-7-6 Napravnik Ubillo 120 7-2

10 Extinguish(L) 12-6-5 Jara Duggan 119 8-1

Justin P owns a deep closing style that could be well served in field where the fractions could get fast and furious. Estimator ships in from FL with competitive numbers and is another that will benefit from probable pace dynamics. Extinguish could prove a very tough customer if able to shake clear from other front-runners.

6 Furlongs. Allowance. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $45,000.

1 Kissa Melissa(L) 3-2-3 Castellano Friedman 121 5-2

2 Claudette's Call(L) 1-4-4 Chavez Contessa 120 20-1

3 Lion's Terms(L) 3-3-1 Velazquez Levine 120 6-1

1a Spina(L) 3-7-1 Velasquez Friedman 120 5-2

4 La Concerto(L) 1-4-1 Garcia Asmussen 122 8-5

5 Singing My Song(L) 1-5-9 Davis Terranova, II 116 20-1

6 Indian Delight(L) 5-2-4 Cohen Duggan 121 7-2

7 Wicked Beauty(L) 7-4-9 DeSouza Ronen 121 30-1

8 Shopit(L) 4-6-2 Napravnik Jerkens 121 12-1

Kissa Melissa packs a powerful late punch and could receive ideal setup in evenly matched field. Indian Delight made menacing move but came up short in last and owns fast back figures; tighter today and very playable. La Concerto is 2-for-3 on inner track and more than good enough on best efforts; short price is the knock.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $46,000.

1 Good Prospect(L) 4-4-7 Garcia Rice 120 4-1

2 Rodeo Hand(L) 5-6-8 Fragoso Dunham 120 20-1

1a Afrikaner(L) 5-2-2 Garcia Rice 120 4-1

3 Typhoon Tycoon(L) 6-5-9 Bocachica Fisher 120 30-1

4 Writingonthewall(L) 1-6-2 Lezcano Martin 120 3-1

5 Saginaw(L) 1-1-2 Castellano Brown 122 5-2

6 Stormy Success(L) 5-6-7 Chavez Toscano 120 20-1

7 Princeofproximity(L) 4-1-6 Davis Coffey 114 30-1

8 Pretty Boy Freud(L) 2-3-3 Velazquez O'Brien 119 7-2

9 Prince Dubai(L) 8-12-5 Fuentes Gyarmati 120 30-1

10 Rises the Phoenix(L) 2-5-4 Alvarado Conway 120 8-1

Pretty Boy Freud gets class relief after logging fast internal and final figures in NY-bred stake last time; gives one more before the bounce. Saginaw has won last two starts by a combined 17 3/4 lengths; could easily get the hat trick today. Afrikaner closes in sprints and may appreciate today's longer trip. Writingonthewall has been on the shelf for more than a year but is training consistently for comeback; must consider.
