Belmont Park - 8th race - 3-Paige (4-1)

Should produce a forward move in this second-level allowance turf affair for fillies and mares after earning a career top figure in her comeback.  Likes to settle and produce a late kick and should have every chance with Ortiz riding her back for Clement (23% with second-off-layoff runners).  Daughter of Sky Mesa was Grade-1 placed as a 2-year-old, so there's plenty to go back to.  At 4-1 on the morning line she offers value both in the straight pool and in rolling exotic play.

Oak Tree at Pleasanton - 5th race - 5-Meiji (7/2)

Juvenile filly makes her debut in a soft spot and has worked like she's fit and ready with a series of nice drills for Hollendorfer, whose stats with first-time starters (26% with a flat-bet profit) is quite impressive.  With current main stable rider Hernandez taking the call, this daughter of Warrior's Reward should outclass her modest foes.  At 7/2 on the morning line she's a strong straight play and rolling exotic single.
