Analysis:  HAPPY WEEK's pedigree speaks for herself.  A $600,000 daughter by the good debut sire Distorted Humor, she is out of a winning half-sister to the great A.P. Indy from an extremely classy family.  Trainer Todd Pletcher, one of the best with debut runners, scratched this gal out of a race earlier in the week, a race won by her coupled stablemate.  The last breeze at Belmont looks sharp.
Kiaran McLaughlin's babies have disappointed thus far at the meet, but we won't be surprised if they think highly of CABLEKNIT, a half-brother to Breeders' Cup Sprint winner Speightstown.  The dam won her debut at two by eight lengths with a 101 Beyer Speed Figure, and Cableknit cost $1.7M at last September's Keeneland yearling sale.
CAPITAL ADEQUACY goes out for underrated debut barn.  The classy stallion has been slumping with his debut runners this year, and Capital Adequacy may want a smidge more distance. 
LIMEHEART makes debut for hot first-crop sire, and the workouts look pretty good.  She cost $120,000 last July, and may offer some value for Dale Romans. 
DATTT ECHO has the experience edge on most of the field, but she is mired down on the rail, and thus needs to break alertly.  She showed speed in her debut, and can be a pace factor at the very least here.  SPECKLEDBIRD's works give out mixed feelings, and she may need a race.  SNAP HAPPY's dam was a quick sprinter, and some of the workouts match up with Encore Saritta, a juvenile debut winner earlier in the meet trained by Dallas Stewart.  RAPPORT has proven to be a $475,000 bust so far.  PROUD ZOE is ineligible, and will be scratched.

Analysis:  HATHEER is a full sister to Habaya, a juvenile debut winner going short on turf for Kiaran McLaughlin in 2008.  The dam was an excellent turf runner, and Hatheer has been prepping on both turf and dirt since early June.
LYRICAL NOTE boasts a quality pedigree as two full brothers have already earned blacktype. It's Pletcher and Velazquez so you know to expect good things. 
CRIMSON GLORY adds blinkers for turf debut after setting the pace in career debut.  She should prove a strong pace factor once again, and this barn simply excels with young horses.  This pedigree may want a little more distance, however. 
IT'SMYBURTDAY shows strong workouts leading up to her career debut, and this sire is extremely underrated with turf performers. 
MISS MATZO boasts strong turf bloodlines, and this barn is extremely solid.  She only cost $1,200 at auction so should be a good price in this spot. MORE AMOUR adds Lasix for second lifetime start, and that's a powerful angle in maiden races.  She has some quick siblings.  NEENIE'S HOUSE makes debut with some decent-looking drills on display.  The sire has gotten off to a quick start at stud.  RAISE THE KITTY must improve off career debut.  READY TO PARTY draws a tough post, and doesn't show a published work in 18 days. SMART SEATTLE may want a bit more ground.  CAPITALISM AT RISK must be respected if this race is washed to the main track.
