7 Wadi Suki(L) 2-4-9 Lopez Persaud 116 5-1

Brilliant Son, 1-for-1 on Belmont loam, drops and owns fast back figures. First Degree could prove tough on a soft lead. Wadi Suki will pack amplified kick with cutback to sprint.

5 Furlongs. 2yo. NY Bred. Maiden Special Weight. Purse: $36,000.

1 Princess Zip(L) 3-x-x Coa Ward 115 5-2

2 Power Dreams(L1) x-x-x Cohen Badgett 118 6-1

1a Wana Elaborate(L1) x-x-x Coa Ward 118 5-2

3 More Is More(L1) x-x-x Maragh Brown 115 6-1

4 Darrin's Dilemma(L1) 2-x-x Dominguez Dutrow 118 2-1

5 Engine Company(L1) x-x-x Espinoza Imperio 118 12-1

6 Highest Regards(L1) x-x-x Velazquez Pletcher 118 3-1

Darrin's Dilemma gets the meds after game placing in debut; experience is the key. Ward entry: Princess Zip was just half-length behind top pick last time and mate Wana Elaborate debuts for potent first-out stable; just one goes with Coa listed on both. Highest Regards debuts for Pletcher after firing half-mile bullet last week.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $25,000.

1 Silver Payday(L) 3-5-3 Maragh Cox 123 6-1

3 Sorority Sister(L) 7-5-4 Dominguez Rodriguez 123 8-5

4 Sister in the City(L) 6-6-7 Serpa Ryerson 118 15-1

5 Salt Water Reign(L) 4-6-2 Cohen Klesaris 123 7-2

6 Dana's Bell(L) 8-5-3 Lezcano Levine 123 5-2

Salt Water Reign should be nearing peak in fourth start since January; shaky call in weak field. Sorority Sister drops in first start for Rudy Rodriguez; likely favorite. Silver Payday would be aided by hot fractions; price will be tempting.

4

11/16 Miles. (Inner Turf). 3yo. Maiden Claiming $60,000-$50,000. Purse: $33,000.

1 Upper Afleet(L) 6-8-4 Samyn Kelly 120 12-1

2 Mr. Hadif(L) 2-2-6 Studart Lostritto 122 15-1

8 Clap Hands(L1) x-x-x Velazquez O'Brien 117 15-1

Main Track Only

9 Known Gambler(L) 5-7-4 No Rider Contessa 122 6-1

Mystic Fever never got going in the mud last time, but logged fast late pace figure on turf in prior outing; rebounds. Person Of Interest owns swift final numbers and drops into maiden claimer; big-time player. Marching Tune logged solid second in lone turf outing; dangerous. Mr. Hadif owns sprinter's speed and could capitalize on lengthy lead.

6 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $25,000.

1 Mama Brown(L) 6-5-3 Velasquez Callejas 123 12-1

2 Risky Gamble(L) 6-3-3 Ramos Signore 123 12-1

3 My Luckey Penney(L) 5-6-7 Espinoza Ortiz 123 8-1

4 Twisted Version(L) 4-7-5 Cedeno Farro 123 15-1

5 Silvercup Baby(L) 4-2-6 Cohen Jacobson 123 7-5

6 The Mules Sister(L) 6-7-4 Gracia Lalman 113 30-1

7 Storm Gal(L) 2-8-9 Dominguez Parisella 123 3-1

8 Southside Babe(L) 3-4-5 Castellano Contessa 123 4-1

Risky Gamble owns a win and two thirds in three starts on Belmont sod and logged two endurance building works for first start since November. Silvercup Baby was fast-figured second on turf two back and should be set for best in third start since February. Twisted Version could be the beneficiary if front-end meltdown ensues.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. NY Bred. Maiden Claiming $25,000. Purse: $22,000.

1 Feldberg(L1) 3-x-x Dominguez Rodriguez 118 6-5

2 Counterfeit Booboo(L) 3-4-8 Bridgmohan Kelly 118 5-2

3 Ripleys Reality(L) 7-x-x Corujo Russo 111 15-1

4 Cottage Industry(L) 7-3-7 Samyn Martin, Sr. 123 15-1

5 Enniskillen(L) 7-6-5 Gracia O'Brien 113 10-1

6 A Smart Judge(L) 6-4-7 Serpa Hertler 118 8-1

7 Strategic Sue(L1) x-x-x Studart Morrison 118 15-1

8 Chaka Bwana(L) 3-6-9 Rodriguez O'Brien 111 10-1

Enniskillen gets class relief and favorable surface switch and pulls weight from slow field; good spot to throw long. A Smart Judge could play out as the main speed and logged crisp half-mile work last week; very playable. Feldberg adds Lasix after even third in well-bet debut; logical. Chaka Bwana improved on muddy surface last out; worth a look.

7 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $35,000-$25,000. Purse: $23,000.

1 Strikealinethruit(L) 8-5-x Castellano Duggan 119 6-1

8 Pretty B(L) 5-4-7 Velasquez Hough 119 7-2

Main Track Only

9 No Goal(L) 8-4-2 No Rider Hennig 119 4-1

Pretty B was pace and trip compromised in last and should move forward in second start since two-month layoff. Jazzy Moves logged solid final fraction when a game second in turf debut; very playable. Strikealinethruit displayed improved speed in last and now makes first start with maiden claiming tag; very interesting.

8

11/16 Miles. (Inner Turf). 3&up. Claiming $25,000. Purse: $28,000.

1 Ecru Egret(L) 3-10-6 Lopez Persaud 114 30-1

10 Cozy Lion(L) 6-6-1 Dominguez Tagg 121 2-1

Main Track Only

11 Full Liquidity(L) 7-1-1 No Rider Zito 117 9-5

Brad's My Hero tallied sizzling late pace figure in most recent and could be sitting on breakthrough in peak start of form cycle. Cozy Lion drops, owns fast figures on 'A' game and gets favorable cutback to shorter distance; big-time player. Budget finished in front of top selection when game second on June 5; right in the thick of this.

6 Furlongs. (Widener Turf). 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $16,000. Purse: $22,000.

1 Msjerseyroulette(L) 6-5-7 Lezcano Serpe 117 6-1

2 Natural Match(L) 5-7-3 Lopez Mena, II 114 20-1

3 Hookin the Goods 7-6-3 Rodriguez Pringle 114 20-1

4 Miss Tequila(L) 1-3-2 Chavez Martin 117 8-5

10 Treat Her Right(L) 3-5-4 Bridgmohan Baker 121 5-1

11 Wine Bar(L) 3-2-2 Santiago Contessa 117 8-1

12 Auric Girl(L) 6-1-10 Studart Toscano 123 12-1

Also Eligible

13 Lady Valiant(L) 3-2-3 Samyn Ortiz 121 2-1

14 Beautiful Pear(L) 6-9-3 Arroyo Kazamias 117 8-1

15 Straight A Student(L) 2-6-2 Serpa Persaud 112 4-1

Natural Match was tough-trip fifth in pricier field group time and lands in field that's jammed with speed today. Wine Bar could prove a tough customer if able to shake clear from other front-runners. Treat Her Right drops, but needs to avoid duel with Wine Bar. Miss Tequila is another that should add heat to front-end fractions; happy hunting.
