Best Bet: AUTUMNLADY (1); Best Value: QUIET MOVER (8)1

6 Furlongs. Claiming $10,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $15,000. (All races on inner dirt). Post - 12:30 p.m.1 Badgette(L) 5-1-2 Fuentes Toscano 123 12-1

6 Ten Carrot Nikki(L) 2-4-1 Luzzi Englehart 120 15-1

7 American Land(L) 3-9-1 Serpa Contessa 115 4-1

8 Cash Value(L) 1-10-10 Velazquez O'Brien 120 12-1

Autumnlady was fast-figured maiden winner in last and fits nicely at $10k N2L level. American Land drops and owns speed and fast numbers; dangerous. Ten Carrot Nikki will prove tough to catch on a soft lead.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. Maiden Claiming $12,500. 3&up. Purse: $15,000.

1 Royal Lord(L) 4-7-8 Hill Quick 122 12-1

2 Napkins(L) 4-4-5 Garcia Hennig 121 6-1

3 St. Augustine(L) 2-2-2 Bocachica Zito 121 9-5

4 Magnificent Max(L) 5-5-5 Velasquez Maker 121 9-2

5 Prospects Double(L) 8-5-x Serpa Reynolds 116 30-1

6 Bindle Stick(L) 3-6-2 Santiago Dunham 121 12-1

7 New York Bobby(L) 3-4-4 Cohen Jacobson 121 2-1

Royal Lord is 0-for-25 but should pack intensified kick with return to dirt; weakness of field is selection's strength. St. Augustine has finished second at short prices five times in nine starts; bad trend. New York Bobby failed to get the job done as the favorite last Friday; recoups losses today?

6 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 2yo. Fillies. Purse: $43,000.

2 Victoria Lynn(L) 6-x-x Espinoza Friedman 120 8-1

1 Amazing Lauren(L) 7-x-x Lezcano Barbara 120 3-1

3 Tranquil Song(L1) x-x-x Garcia Magnuson 120 5-2

1a Lucida(L1) x-x-x Hill Barbara 120 3-1

4 Splitting Heirs(L1) x-x-x Castellano Brown 120 6-1

5 Golden Galleon(L1) x-x-x Velazquez Pletcher 120 9-5

6 Mrs. Stroud(L) 9-8-8 Luzzi Sciacca 120 12-1

Victoria Lynn made a middle move and flattened in debut and should be tighter with race under her belt. Splitting Heirs logged a work slate that noticeably picked up the tempo in final two drills; charting a must. Golden Galleon has displayed ability in recent works and now debuts for Pletcher; could be the goods.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. Maiden Claiming $20,000. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $15,000.

7 Driven by Power(L) 7-7-x Castellano Levine 121 4-1

8 Old Kit Bag(L) 10-9-10 Luzzi Rossi 122 20-1

Judge Alex made a sustained rally after rough start in debut and fired 5-furlong work in the interim. Driven by Power owns speed and takes potent class drop; very dangerous. Eddie's Point is riding an improving line on the numbers; big-time player.

6 Furlongs. Claiming $10,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $17,000.

9 Crazy Thing(L) 3-5-3 Davis Russo 115 3-1

10 Holy Trouble(L) 6-3-2 Napravnik Conway 120 7-2

Calling My Colors, a front-running winner in last at the Big M, is 3-for-3 on inner track and could play out as the main speed on the fence. Boss Tiffany drops two class levels after even fourth as the favorite last time; fire sale? Carmen Camacho has won three of last four at FL and should offer generous price; very interesting.

13 Northern Berkshire(L) 3-x-x Alvarado Miller-Saul 119 30-1

1a Illgiveyouwattever(L1) x-x-x Studart Contessa 119 8-1

Downtown Hottie drops and gets positive surface switch and could be sitting on wakeup at fat ticket in slow field. Sultrysilver was even fourth in 14-horse field in debut and now drops into maiden claimers; big-time threat. Magical Solution was distant second behind runaway winner in last; logical contender.

11 Timber Cruise(L) 5-6-1 Velasquez Jacobson 120 20-1

12 Classic Moon(L) 5-3-1 Castellano Brown 121 8-1

Pygmalion ships in from FL with sharp current form and fast figures and owns two wins on the inner track. West Coast Flier drops and logged fast numbers on this track last winter; very dangerous. Volos was game third at this level in last; right in the thick of this.

8 Diced N Sliced(L) 5-3-4 Velazquez Ritvo 119 15-1

9 Star Over Malibu(L) 9-2-4 Velasquez Contessa 120 10-1

Quiet Mover consistently logs fast late pace figures and could receive favorable setup in probable pace dynamics. Star Over Malibu makes first start since moving to Contessa barn; very playable. Saarlight owns fast numbers and has been training strongly for first start since June; demand value.

2b Kid Freud(L) 7-1-9 Cohen Autrey 119 4-1

1a Four Star General(L) 5-5-7 Castellano Lostritto 119 15-1

Wicked Climb tallied swift internal and final figures when a game second last week and could fire one more big effort before the bounce. Golden Guska was a dominant, front-running winner in last; big-time threat. Calagaitor will be the beneficiary if pace gets hot and hectic. El Borracho hails from high-octane Chip Dutrow barn; must consider.
