3 Tribaltique L Mawing 9/5 122
1 Codys a Bobcat W Antongrgi 9/2 120
4 Ontheshadyside Camacho-Flrs 4 120
Send Silver showed some ability last year as a 3-year-old, but drops in class after two disappointing starts this year. He might get an easy lead as there isn't much early speed in this race. Frenzo drops into a good spot and cuts back in distance. Tribaltique was a strong second in his Emerald debut two weeks ago.

6 Postulate J Gutierrez 5 118
7 Let'em Be Cowboys Camacho-Flrs 8 124

Sharp Focus should move forward with the big class drop from maiden allowance company. Amazing G. Force has been working out well since a strong third in his career debut last month. Maniacal Passion took a nice step forward in her second career race, finishing second at this level.

8 Popular Pick W Antongrgi 3 122
9 Let's Top It Off R Bowen 7/2 122
Just Zoom Will Do showed great promise in his career debut, finishing second to a stakes winner in a straight allowance race. But after two clunkers against maiden allowance company, he drops into the maiden-claiming ranks. He should win here. Southfork Pegasus finished second in each of his first two races. Regal Valid has three seconds and four thirds in eight starts and has disappointed as a big favorite in three straight starts.

7 Armed Service Camacho-Flrs 5 124
8 Our Tail Win M Anderson 8 124
Sarganis has four wins and three seconds in 10 starts at a mile and seems primed for a top effort. Offlee Wild Boys has gone from running in the Santa Anita Derby last year to racing against bottom-level claimers. His speed figures are superior to others in the field, but he will face pace pressure in his Emerald debut. Pasta Time has six thirds in 14 starts at this distance.

3 Golden N Sweet E Kubinova 6 119
5 D Devil J Zunino 10 120
8 Mufaajy L Mawing 6 122

Declan Downs is overdue for a win and drops into a good spot. Country Square is a tough horse. He closed well to win two starts ago, then led gate to wire in his last start. Passion Lives Here drops back to an appropriate level, and he beat better two races back.

6 6 furlongs, purse $20,000, 3-year-olds, fillies, AOC $25,000

6 Mattie Blue G Mitchell 8 118
8 Alltheway Heather J Torres 5 118

She's a Time Bomb had some amazing workouts, then won her yearly debut three weeks ago. She seems very talented. River of Aces jumps up the class ladder again after two straight wins. Smokin' Grey made a visually impressive move while breaking his maiden in his last race.

4 Touch Too R Bowen 5 123
7 Walkin' With Nona J Gutierrez 5/2 123
Churchbellsringing flattened out after making a move at this distance in her last race, also at this distance. She should be closer to the lead today, with the only speed horse (Walkin' With Nona) being on the far outside. Midknight Matty was third as the favorite in her last race. Click It In has won twice in 25 career starts, but both wins came among his seven starts at this distance.

1 Rainier Ice G Mitchell 9/2 114
2 Slim Pickins J Gutierrez 12 112
4 Aaron the Baron Camacho-Flrs 10 114
Noosa Beach had a rough trip last month in the Governors Handicap and was out of the money for just the second time in 22 starts. The champion should rebound today. Jebrica showed a lot of talent as a 3-year-old and was a solid second (ahead of Noosa Beach) in his yearly debut. Winning Machine took advantage of a soft pace to win the Governors in gate-to-wire fashion.

2 Wasserman J Matias 3 120
4 Memo to Mya J Torres 8 120
5 Wowie Maui J Gutierrez 4 122
Cat On Base was awesome in winning his first two starts of the meet, but faltered on a wet track in his last race when he couldn't get the early lead. Jennifer Whitaker will need to get her horse to relax if the outside horse (Wowie Maui) makes the pace too fast. Newfound Gold can handle the jump up in class. Wasserman can rally late for third.

2 Keepanosecrets J Torres 8 116
3 Quinnette E Kubinova 6 113
5 Orlando Xpress R Bowen 3 120
6 Sabe J Whitaker 15 118
He's a Cruiser was second in his last race after a very troubled trip the race before. He can take another step forward today. Wild Wings drops in class despite being competitive against better. Gold Surge woke up in his last race with a drop in class, beating a group similar to this one.

BEST BET: Noosa Beach
