6 More Is Better(L) 5-1-6 Velasquez Tagg 116 5-2

Main Track Only

7 Spina(L) 3-5-4 No Rider Friedman 120 4-1

Echt logged solid late pace figure in route at Pen last time and should pack amplified kick with cutback to 7 furlongs. Phantom Rising makes turf debut for Mott; very playable if price is right. Citifiesta earned good number when wide in last; dangerous.

2

5 1/2 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 2yo. Purse: $50,000.

1 Nuckser(L1) 7-x-x Bermudez McGillycuddy 118 50-1

2 Dax(L1) x-x-x Cohen Hennig 118 12-1

3 Stay Thirsty(L1) x-x-x Velazquez Pletcher 118 2-1

4 Punster(L1) x-x-x Velasquez Alexander 118 7-2

5 Scoville(L1) x-x-x Gomez Clement 118 9-2

6 Air Support x-x-x Castellano McGaughey 118 8-1

7 Sovereign Default(L1) x-x-x Garcia Violette 118 5-2

Dax compiled sneaky-good work slate and could offer generous odds; best guess. Sovereign Default shows a bullet-riddled training tab; could be the goods. Scoville fired crisp half-mile move from gate in final drill; charting a must.

6 1/2 Furlongs. Maiden Special Weight. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $50,000.

1 Miss Vindictive(L1) x-x-x Serpa Hertler 113 12-1

4 Amazing Mary(L1) x-x-x Bermudez McGillycuddy 118 30-1

5 Wild Banshee(L1) x-x-x Santiago Kimmel 118 5-1

6 Ivybridge(L) 2-4-x Hill Albertrani 118 1-1

Arena Elvira logged tightly grouped work tab for debut and lands in good spot. Wild Banshee is another newcomer that's training swiftly; stay tuned to the money. Ivybridge tallied good number when second to a runway winner last time; logical player.

4

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). Claiming $16,000. 3&up. Purse: $22,000.

1 Kick Up Your Heels(L) 6-8-3 Bermudez Martin, Sr. 121 12-1

2 Richie Rules(L) 4-10-7 Desormeaux DiMauro 117 12-1

3 Classroom Legend(L) 2-4-3 Espinoza Contessa 121 10-1

4 Seis de Mayo(L) 4-5-6 Maragh Toscano 117 5-1

7 Slamm'n Lou(L) 6-7-4 Luzzi Badgett 121 9-2

8 Prince Cody(L) 4-3-3 Gracia Ribaudo 107 15-1

Main Track Only

9 Delta Thunder(L) 4-1-2 Maragh Alexander 121 5-2

First Of Ten should find already potent late kick intensified with cutback to 6 furlongs. Seis de Mayo was done in by hot fractions when favored last out; dangerous. Slamm'n Lou could impact if pace gets fast and furious; don't ignore.

5

1 1/16 Mile. Starters Allowance. 3&up. Purse: $45,000.

1 Unbridled Heat(L) 5-6-3 Velazquez Jerkens 120 10-1

2 Seniors Pride(L) 1-4-3 Velasquez Tannuzzo 120 5-2

3 Magic Lion(L) 1-1-4 Maragh Brown 116 3-1

4 Good Karma(L) 1-5-2 Prado Martin, Sr. 120 20-1

5 Clear Faith(L) 3-1-1 Castellano Hernandez 120 9-2

6 Malibu Moonshine(L) 6-6-1 Hill Toscano 120 30-1

7 Bad Action(L) 6-3-5 Cohen Pletcher 120 2-1

Unbridled Heat owns sprinter's speed and may play out as the controlling frontrunner on the fence with aggressive ride. Seniors Pride fired two 5-furlong bullet works since top-figured score in last; very playable. Clear Faith logs fast figures with machine-like consistency; must consider.

6

1 1/16 Mile. (Widener Turf). Maiden Claiming $25,000. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Purse: $23,000.

1 Catalina Lady(L1) 7-9-10 Velazquez O'Brien 119 12-1

2 Deonzion(L) 6-11-6 Rodriguez Terracciano 116 10-1

3 Sundae's a Meese(L) 4-4-9 Chavez Barker 119 3-1

4 Crystal Galopoff(L) 9-4-8 Serpa Ryerson 118 10-1

5 No Imagination(L) 6-3-4 Prado Hennig 119 5-2

6 Lemon Tiger(L) 6-x-x Maragh Schettino 119 7-2

7 Doggonecat(L1) 6-7-x Hill Schwartz 119 20-1

8 Ruby's Magic Spell(L) 8-5-7 Bridgmohan Kelly 119 5-1

No Imagination notched deceptively fast late pace figure in last and should be aided by today's additional sixteenth. Lemon Tiger drops into maiden claimer after late-running sixth in well-bet debut at Big A in April; dangerous. Sundae's a Meese returns to NY-bred ranks and stretches to favorably longer trip; right in the thick of this.

6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf). Starters Allowance. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Purse: $40,000.

1 My Luckey Penney(L) 5-5-6 Rodriguez Ortiz 113 30-1

2 Princess Maura(L) 4-5-2 Prado Schosberg 120 6-1

3 Linnea(L) 1-1-1 Dominguez Beattie 121 4-1

4 Risky Gamble(L) 2-6-3 Velasquez Signore 120 10-1

5 Hangingonaprayer(L) 4-2-1 Lezcano Martin 120 8-1

6 Eightyfive S(L) 6-1-3 Castro Sallusto 121 12-1

7 Talented Princess(L) 4-3-1 Cohen Jacobson 120 5-2

8 Tempest Storm(L) 7-2-1 Castellano Domino 120 2-1

Main Track Only

9 Five Grand Girl(L) 1-1-5 Dominguez Dutrow 120 8-5

10 Verse Choir(L) 1-5-2 Maragh Jerkens 116 3-1

11 Kissa Melissa(L) 2-1-4 Lezcano Friedman 120 2-1

Tempest Storm hails from streaking barn and is training strongly for first start since May; best price potential of the contenders. Linnea exits front-running score in last at Pha and could play out as the dominant speed in local debut. Risky Gamble could be sitting in the catbird seat if pace meltdown ensues.

8

7 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). Allowance Optional Claiming. 3&up. NY Bred. Purse: $40,000.

1 Extra Zip(L) 6-8-1 Desormeaux Toscano 120 12-1

2 Chernobyl's Hero(L) 1-4-2 Espinoza Odintz 121 10-1

3 Gold Vendetta(L) 3-3-5 Castellano Contessa 120 7-2

4 Love Abroad(L) 4-6-4 Serpa Hertler 115 20-1

5 Brazen Kat(L) 5-1-3 Dominguez Duggan 120 12-1

6 Gold Bear(L) 3-4-3 Falk Falk 120 30-1

7 Six Flings(L) 4-2-2 Santiago Callejas 120 10-1

8 Hot Money(L) 1-3-4 Maragh Clement 123 5-2

9 Mor Chances(L) 1-5-3 Lezcano Dutrow 123 2-1

Mor Chances has trained strongly since fast-figured win seven weeks ago; more to come. Six Flings logged three tightly grouped works since tough-trip fourth in last; turn back to 7 furlongs suits. Gold Vendetta owns fast figures and packs a potent late kick; very dangerous.

9

7 Furlongs. Maiden Claiming $40,000-$30,000. 3&up. Purse: $24,000.

1 Driven by Fear(L) 2-3-5 Maragh Brown 122 10-1

2 W.W.'s Lady's Man(L) 2-2-2 Dominguez Dutrow 118 5-2

3 Sea of Liquidity(L) 5-2-2 Castellano Brown 118 2-1

4 Scotchirish(L1) 5-6-x Garcia Lerman 116 30-1

5 World Record(L) 9-7-9 Velasquez McGaughey 117 10-1

6 Luna Pegasus(L) 8-x-x Rodriguez Ice 111 8-1

7 Friendly Wager(L) 4-5-2 Prado Martin, Sr. 121 6-1

8 Ghosts and Legends(L) 8-x-x Lezcano Dutrow 118 12-1

9 Seeking Anita(L) 4-6-x Hill Sciacca 120 15-1

Seeking Anita tallied solid final fraction in last and should have more to give in second start since two-month layoff. Driven By Fear is working long and hard for first start in 17 months; very interesting. Ghosts and Legends takes potent class drop and has trained sharply since debut; worth long look. Friendly Wager is fresh and owns fast figures on 'A' game; must consider.
