Analysis:
A. P. LIGHT's connections aren't known for their first-out successes, but their filly is by a win-early sire, and has been working steadily since mid-May for her debut. She gets a tepid nod in a contentious race.
RED SEVEN blew a huge lead in her career debut at Belmont, and now drops in for a tag after failing to pass the vet at Delaware on August 4. Her good early speed should put her in the mix from the get-go, and she fits from a class standpoint.
RUNNIN ON GUILT broke slowly from the rail in her debut, and now draws wide. She should show improvement in her second start.
READ THE POST is by a promising first-crop sire, but the connections have struggled with first-time starters. TOMORROWS ROSES took some money for her debut, but had trouble at the start over a sloppy surface. The drop in class should help. LARCENOUS LADY showed a hint of speed against better in her debut, and may press Red Seven from the start. SATURDAYNITESANDY and IRISH MAMA both debut for Linda Rice, an underrated source of debut winners. PALS FIRST LADY attracts John Velazquez for her debut. KARAKORUM CAYU and ELEGANT BESS both may need a race.

Selections:
1. A. P. Light
2. Red Seven
3. Runnin on Guilt

The Play: A. P. Light to Win and Place at 8-1 or more

Analysis:
BRAZEN ACTION's sire scored with seven debut winners from his first crop in 2007, and trainer John Kimmel boasts excellent numbers with newcomers. It's nice to see Edgar Prado take the call, and he should break clear of trouble from the far outside.
MONEY WELL SPENT attracts John Velazquez, and the sire was a quick runner. This gelding should offer value for low profile barn.
TRINITY MAGIC is by a top first-out barn, and the Performing Magic colt shows some intriguing Saratoga workouts.
VINNIE VAN GO didn't have the easiest of trips when a rallying second in his debut, and he has since worked a solid five furlongs. FIDDLERS AFLEET looms the one to catch breaking near the inside, but he's faltered in the late stages of both lifetime races. HUDSON HEIGHTS is by a versatile first-crop sire that is searching for his first debut winner. PEGASUS TOMMY D. adds Lasix after a tough trip debut, and should move forward. WISE GUY KELLY seems to have picked up the pace in his recent workouts. TOQUE's dam was a quick one, but the inside post is worrisome. SHOW ME THE CASH may do better with added maturity.

Selections:
1. Brazen Action
2. Money Well Spent
3. Trinity Magic

Analysis:
Taking a stab with likely longshot GET STORMY, a colt trained by the very capable Tom Bush. There is some turf on the bottom of the pedigree.
Marylou Whitney, Wayne Lukas and Julien Leparoux successfully pulled off the dirt-to-turf angle with "Spa Babies" selection Ninth Client earlier in the meet, and their LUV GOV shows a solid workout in preparation for his grass debut. He should be forwardly-placed, and is bred to appreciate the extra distance.
EVOLUTIONIST has a wonderful pedigree, but doesn't show a published workout in almost three weeks, and trainer Bill Mott is struggling with debut runners.
PRECIOUS BEANS exits a key race at Churchill Downs, and should be a strong pace factor under Edgar Prado. HYPE debuts for the dangerous Pletcher-Velazquez team, but draws a difficult outside post. RELATIVELY READY shows the same "dull dirt line, switch to turf" angle that almost got David Donk's Dancing Daisy home earlier in the meet. The More Than Ready colt is bred for turf, and shows a strong series of workouts. TAR BEACH exits the slower division of maiden special weights at Churchill Downs on July 5. HERR MOZART shows a nineteen-day gap between the last two drills. INSIDER was green on dirt, but is capable of improving some here. POINTING HOME competed in a race at Churchill on June 14 that produced at least three next-out winners, then had the misfortune of facing the promising Munnings earlier in the meet. He's bred for distance. INTO MY SOUL raced evenly after a poor break. He has a classy pedigree, and is capable of better. STORMALORY shows a strong pedigree, and would likely factor if this is washed off the turf. TOBY THE COAL MAN and TAKE THE POINTS also are hoping for a washout.
