First three horses listed in each race in order of predicted finish.

Sunday

First race: 2 p.m.

1 1 mile, purse $4,725, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $2,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 2Zippin E I Enriquez8/5123 5Sun City D Lopez3123 6Fly Away C Papineau7/2123 1Pickled Again L Lopez15123 3Naughtical A Sanguinetti10 123 4Smokin Badge J Gutierrez4123

Zippin E is great at this distance and gets a better post position after finishing second in her last race, which was at this level and distance. Sun City is still competitive at age 9, and was a nice second in her last race despite being in the No. 12 post and not breaking well. Fly Away made a big move in her last start to take the lead but flatted out late to finish third.

2 6 furlongs, purse $5,350, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, maiden claiming $5,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 3Matfinish D Lopez7/2123 5Charismatic Hope J Matias5/2123 4Wind a Flyin L Camacho-Flores5117 1Victoria Harbour I Enriquez4117 2Slamin' Kitty A Sanguinetti6117 6Kant Catch Jayden R Richard9/2123 7Miss Kelso L Lopez15123

If Matfinish is ever going to win, this could be the day in her 17th start. She scratched out of a race Saturday to run in this one. Charismatic Hope was third of 11 in her last start. Wind a Flyin was second in her career debut at 19-1.

3 6 furlongs, purse $6,725, 3-year-olds, maiden claiming $7,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 1Big Fat Storm R Richard2122 2Financial Officer J Whitaker4122 3Jacks Last Try J Gutierrez9/2122 4Race the Waves D Lopez5122 5Count Trevor R Bowen8122 6Chevron Flying J Matias10122 7Peak a Boot Song I Enriquez8122

SCRATCHED: Big Black Cat.

Big Fat Storm has finished second in each of his first three starts. He will likely be heavily favored to finish one spot better. Financial Officer drops in class. Jacks Last Try is an improving horse.

4 6 furlongs, purse $5,675, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $3,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 5Grand Baylee I Enriquez5/2123 1Hardbody D Lopez9/5123 2All the Rage J Matias3123 3Atta Lora E Kubinova5123 4Roxy Skylar C Papineau15123 6Sovereign Bay L Camacho-Flores8123 7Stolen Forum M Werner-Hagerty15123

Grand Baylee was claimed for $7,500 out her last start and immediately takes a big drop in class. That’s not a great sign, but she is tough at this level. Hardbody keeps dropping in class after excellent races. All the Rage will be rallying late.

5 1 mile, purse $4,725, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 1Surfliner A Sanguinetti5/2124 2Timely Note I Enriquez3124 6Crescent Bar J Gutierrez9/2124 3Kaitlans Song R Richard5118 4Adam N Ryan R Bowen12124 5Just Jokin Around N Chaves15124 7Curvitude D Lopez20124 8Wingman Willy E Kubinova8118 9He's Tickled J Matias6124

Surfliner drops in class and has a nice inside post. Timely Note is in great form. Crescent Bar will try to run down the leaders late.

6 1 mile, purse $5,675, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $3,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 2Bebe Chrissy J Matias6124 1Just Say It R Richard7/2124 5Swiss Lightning R Bowen4124 3R J's Prospect A Sanguinetti8124 4Havin a Good Day J Gutierrez15124 6Orlando Xpress I Enriquez9/5124 7Hunter Kane D Lopez6124

This race should set up well for a closer like Bebe Chrissy. Just Say It is a good fit at this level if she can handle the stretch-out in distance. Swiss Lightning has won two of five starts at this distance.

7 6 furlongs, purse $14,800, 3-year-olds, claiming $20,000/$18,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 4My Boy Butch J Matias5/2120 1Ryans Argument I Enriquez8/5118 5Botch D Lopez3118 2Bound to Win E Kubinova8118 3Master's Bluff R Richard4120

My Boy Butch exits a stakes race on turf at Turf Paradise in Phoenix. He fits well at this level and has had success at Emerald Downs. Ryans Argument gets better each race. Botch might have figured things out in his last race.

8 1 mile, purse $19,950, 3-year-olds and up, AOC $32,000PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 1Rocky's Quest J Gutierrez7/5124 4Edge Forward D Lopez4124 3Sandys Diamond J Matias5124 2Perfect Night J Whitaker12124 5Memphis Beach L Camacho-Flores6124 6M Two Forty A Sanguinetti15124 7Touch the Sun I Enriquez9/2124

Rocky’s Quest was badly beaten in a stakes race two weeks ago, but he can bounce back here. Edge Forward runs for a claiming price for the first time. Sandys Diamond is in great form.

9 51/2 furlongs, purse $4,725, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500PPHorseJockeyLineWt. 5Bumpy R Bowen9/2124 3All My Friends D Lopez4/5124 1Sabe E Kubinova12124 2Come On Partner L Lopez6118 4Rorkes Drift N Chaves20124 6Seven Demons I Enriquez4124 7Ringo's Gold L Camacho-Flores15124

This race is full of speed and Bumpy could prevail if Rocco Bowen avoids an early speed duel. All My Friends is looking for his second straight win. Sabe is dropping in class.

BEST BET: Surfliner.
