8 Simple Western(L) 5-9-10 Chavez Quick 120 8-1

9 Dr Paula Moynahan(L) 5-1-2 Dominguez Violette 120 4-1

Claudette's Call gets class relief and starts from best seat in the house with short run into first turn. Crema d'Oro owns fast figures, but shows light work tab for first start in 50 days; mixed message. Spring Elusion is another with fast numbers and sparse work slate; happy hunting.

1 Mile & 70 Yards. 2yo. Fillies. Maiden Claiming $50,000-$40,000. Purse: $29,000.

1 Kittylicious(L) 5-4-4 Serpa Sciacca 115 4-1

1a Somalia(L) 5-8-x Bisono Sciacca 120 4-1

8 Bird Box(L) 9-7-x Hill Hennig 120 10-1

Pleasant Fever has logged good numbers out of town and fired 5-furlong bullet for this. Somalia rallied after rough start in last and should be aided by today's longer trip. Quantitativeeasing regressed in last after fast-figured placing in prior; rebound potential.

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Fillies and Mares. Claiming $12,500. Purse: $20,000.

7 Ed's Princess(L) 6-6-8 Bocachica Lotruglio 120 30-1

8 Lucky Sila(L) 6-1-5 Jara Arroyo 121 10-1

9 One Tough Belle(L) 6-4-4 Migliore Dutrow 120 7-2

Lucky Sila was done in by poor start in last, but tallied fast-figured win in prior; bounces back today. Galluscio entry: O'Sotopretty was a winner at this level in last and mate Boss Tiffany drops to lifetime low; just one goes with Castellano listed on both. Baroness owns two wins from four starts on inner strip; dangerous. Crazy Thing is a last-race winner that should offer generous odds; don't ignore.

10 Treasure's of Gold(L) 3-4-5 Bocachica Autrey 120 12-1

11 Lulu's Secret(L) 6-3-7 Chavez Signore 120 30-1

Stephen's Rhythm's drops after making middle move and flattening in last; call in wide-open dash. Catchuptothesun owns speed, loves inner track and starts from fence; big-time contender. Sophisticated Lass plunges sharply for Rick Dutrow; fire sale? Only a Vision is more than good enough on 'A' game. Indy's Forum was a front-running winner at this level in last; don't dismiss.

11 Punt's Kitty(L) 2-2-5 Dominguez Miceli 120 7-2

12 Sand and Song(L) 8-2-4 Serpa Hills 115 12-1

Essex Ferry is fresh and rested and makes first start for Bruce Levine. Punt's Kitty has finished second at short odds in three of last four; bad trend? Ten Carrot Nikki is the one that must be caught; must respect.

Also Eligible

1a Mendelssohn(L) 5-5-5 Bocachica Zito 120 20-1

Bold Vindication exits even fourth after tough trip in first start on inner track last time; forward move predicted. Sawtooth Mountain logged clear-cut seconds at this level in last two starts; logical player. Haitian Sensation has been sidelined since June but owns fast figures on best efforts; your move.

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

2 Theartofcompromise(L) 1-1-5 Rodriguez Persaud 121 12-1

1 Sonny's the One(L) 1-1-6 Espinoza Ortiz 120 12-1

8 Citifest(L) 4-3-2 Jara Hertler 120 6-1

9 Coach Butts(L) 4-5-2 Hill Bush 120 12-1

10 Half a Note(L) 3-3-3 Dominguez Rice 120 9-2

King Bo Bo is riding an improving line on the form parameters and should offer generous price odds in big field. Half a Note consistently earns fast late pace figures and would be aided by pace meltdown; very playable. Frenchonionsoup logs fast numbers with machine-like consistency; big-time threat. R Little Nugget owns six wins from nine starts; hard to ignore.

8

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $49,000.

1 Carbonite(L) 4-3-2 Dominguez Dutrow 119 5-2

6 Forefathers(L) 6-6-3 Bocachica Zito 120 12-1

7 Mt. Glittermore(L) 1-5-2 Castellano Contessa 120 4-1

Mt. Glittermore has trained sharply since determined score last month; more to come. Smokin Hero, another last-race winner, owns fast back figures; very dangerous. Carbonite is training swiftly and hails from Tony Dutrow barn; could easily take this.

9

6 Furlongs. 3&up. Claiming $7,500. Purse: $15,000.

3 Victorious Affair(L) 3-1-6 Alvarado Conway 120 20-1

11 Of All Times(L) 2-1-3 Dominguez Levine 120 2-1

12 Charging Hero(L) 6-1-4 Serpa Galluscio 116 7-2

Also Eligible

2b Wadi Suki(L) 6-8-6 DeSouza Contessa 120 15-1

1a Man in Grey(L) 2-6-3 Cohen Autrey 120 8-1

Morine's Victory was pace and trip compromised in last; rates close call in wide-open nightcap. Charging Hero turns back to preferred distance and owns fast numbers on best; very playable. Of All Times owns speed and is a three-time winner on inner oval, but takes suspicious class plunge; your move. Castle Harbour logged front-running scores in last two at FL; big-time threat.
