(9) Kantune (D) was a little wide last time and note the win two back at today’s distance as well Rosario climbing back aboard. (7) Air Vice Marshall (C) ran best-ever race at 7f last time and may not want to stretch out, but barn has a good record doing it. (1) Exulting may be worth a look trying the turf.

6th race – (10) Purrfect Miss (B) is one of only three to start in this field and her debut was head-and-shoulders above others. (8) Mominou shows nice series of works in preps for the debut and the most recent 5f drill should mean he is ready. (6) Gemini goes out for barn that wins at 16 percent clip with first-time starters. (4) Lezendary shows solid work pattern for debut and barn is 14 percent with first-timers.

7th race – (1) Wicked Macho (B) came flying late last time in first-ever turf sprint and figures to get pace to run into once again. (9) Gehrig ran his career-best race last time he was on firm turf. (10) New York’s Finest enters off a career best and is 2 for 2 lifetime over the Spa turf. (8) Macho Miah tries turf for savvy barn off the Finger Lakes win.

9th race – (2) Going for Broke (A) came up just short against an excellent horse last time out and is the one to beat since she does own best, last-race fig. (1) Verve’s Tale drops out of some competitive tries in graded stakes. (6) Rachel’s Temper has run her best two races over the SAR main track. (5) Blue Prize adds blinkers and has run well since coming north.
