9: Sleep Walking (A. Canchari, Martinez)123/12-1

MY ROCHESTER lost clear lead after setting a bewildering frantic pace; jockey switch to Carreno and stern coaching by trainer Diodoro should slow things down. YOU’RE MY BUDDY drops in class and will be compromised by fast pace with late closing kick. RISEEASTSETSWEST cuts back in distance after getting up late for the win last effort.

9: Baby Pickles (Swiontek, Oliver)118/9-2

LADY’S EDITION has a knack for minor awards with five place honors in last seven starts; might need a quick pace to get job done in this unreliable field. BROOKE ACADEMY could find the lead today with blinkers off and possibly slip away. ROYAL BLUFF takes huge class drop off the turf. BABY PICKLES will be searching for back-to-back wins after breaking maiden 10 days ago.

10: Royal Import (Stevens, Chambers)123/7-2

Little separates most of the field. Give slight nod to RARE COURAGE on the drop off the lawn with jockey switch to Eddie Martin. LISTEN YOU FOOL seems to be asking for more furlongs after strong finishes at shorter distances. MAD GENIUS, SAMENDRA and ROYAL IMPACT are major players and must use on tickets.

8: Model Citizen (Dieguez, Sheehan)121/9-2

9: Nolangrant’skitten (Martin, Scherer)121/8-1

UNSTOPPABLE COLBY’s pedigree suggests running on the turf should be just fine for first attempt; been facing tons better out of state. CARIBBEAN STORM rallied four wide, getting caught late as the favorite. Expect ground-saving trip starting from the inside post. Expect MODEL CITIZEN and STAR STREET to clash up front to see who will dictate the pace.

8: Pendulum (Martinez, Padilla)121/7-2

GET BACK MAN will seek three consecutive victories with Justin Shepherd aboard, beat many in this field already. RAINIER MISSILE came on to the scene late but strong for show dollars behind Get Back Man. PENDULUM is a candidate for improvement after being last-out beaten favorite exiting prior impressive win while circling the field.

14: This Is the Bizz (Canchari, Bethke)123/5-1

15: Archarchmonarch (Olesiak, Bollinger)119/10-1

Difficult nightcap with many questions to ask from this group. LUXURY AND GLITTER is 0-for-28 but perfect field to start the season for new barn, training well for return. First-timers HEIR TO THE CASTLE and MIRICAL SKIER show encouraging works for their inauguration. THIS IS THE BIZZ is a must use if gets in off the also-entered list.
