race 1    average clarity

2  Not Kidding Around   bad trips in last 2 races hides a horse in good form.....gets 7 lbs off for today.......should be solid with a decent trip

4  Quizzical    nice 2nd place finish in last with a big gap to 3rd....capable of solid early pace....a big deal in an abbreviated sprint race

5  Missdang Sally   wide with pace in last hides a solid layoff run....same effort with a better trip and he has a solid jock for today

6  Rich In Tradition   sure woke up 1st time Dmr in last....only needs a small forward move to be in the hunt here


race 2    average clarity

7  Field Report   very solid efforts last year at like the same can occur now off of the layoff at 4.......and drops......might be very tough if he is right

2  Anabaa Premium   chased a strong pace at a route and didn't fade too badly late....cut back to a sprint should be a good fit now that he has learned to chase

1  Qatar's Pearl    looks like a sharp move for Troy Taylor to sprint this horse in last.....could have won at this level if it wasn't for a 4 wide trip

8  Axle    last wasn't too bad....debut 2 back was better....recent sharp drill suggest he can rebound to it.....can be in the hunt if he does and gets a good trip 


race 3    average clarity

1  Clubhouse Rules    seems to greatly prefer the grass....both efforts sprinting down the SA hill fit well here.......very impressive 5F work just 6 days ago

6  Malibu Knight   clunker in of a wake run 2 back.....blinkers off today to help find that significant effort.....Bejarano sticks around

7  Red Jag   runs well fresh and runs well at 5 furlongs on the sod.....Crc invader is training well for Mulhall and seemingly has a shot

2  Truest Legend   best races ever are his last two with the blinkers on.......finally 7 races later they are back 101


race 4    average clarity

6  Attack The Jack   claimed for 20K....out of jail so logically drops to trainer Mullins wisely leaves Maldonado up.....good chance to go wire to wire once again here to make it 4 straight wins

8  Warren's Morgan   last sure looks like a gimme to dirty up the form some and drop and go go go here

2  Never Shea Never   solid layoff win in last........only needs a small logical move forward to be a significant player here

7  Lady Rochelle   speedster needs to chase or our top pick will most likely do him in......some shot if he does chase


race 5   slightly below average clarity

4  Wildcat Moon  good mc debut at one notch higher in claiming..... very sharp work since.....and drops from mdn80K to mdn 62.5K.....all systems go for a solid attempt at graduating

2  Resistant   exactly the same scenario as our top pick minus the strong drill.....instead we get 2 useful works to keep this runner on edge

5  Dancer Humor   good mdn 50K debut run at Crc on July 6th has been able to work 4 times over the Dmr AW.....all set for 1st S Cal run

3  No Rachmones   speed horse has been tiring in the late stages.....blinkers off seems like a good thing to slow this runner down in the early stages


race 6    slightly above average clarity

5  Customer Base   sure ran awfully strong 1st time on the Del Mar grass course in last......Proctor has been on a roll with his turf horses and has a good shot to keep things rolling with this grass cutter

4  Lady Ten   fell off in latest but I smell a in two solid endurance building 6F drills....fits fine if she bounces back to effort 2 back

2  Byrama   needs to find her efforts she popped last winter.....maybe blinkers off can shake things up and wake her up

6  Cozze Up Lady   3 decent turf races run in the Midwest..........shipper has some early gas which looks OK in this spot......1 mile seems like a good fit


race 7    average clarity

1  Nicole's Mark    exits a solid heat.......earned a strong adjusted for trouble Santucci fig.....1st long but bred to get the distance and gets a decent post to starts things from

7  Tiz Lovely   decent race against the boys in last......positive rider switch with the 7 lbs. off......shot to be dominate up front from the get go.....low weight and back against the girls can keep this filly in the hunt thru-out

8  Malibu Love   consistent sort just fired her best AW race ever.......fits fine but shows a tendency to hang in the stretch......that she will need to overcome

4  Unusual Darling    improving by leaps and bounds with every start........claimed by a low % trainer......can he can the improvement coming?......fits solidly if he can.....we shall see

9  Lady Shazzam

11  It's Candy Time
