1One Smart Girl L Camacho-Flores5-1120
2Silly Streak C Doll12-1120
6Grantbobbiawish A Sanguinetti6-1123
7Milieux D Lopez15-1120

Crush on You was second in a similar race two weeks ago. Hey Lil Missy was right behind the top pick in that race and also has a good chance. The rest of the field seems a notch below the top two, but maybe Seattle Harbor can rally late to complete the trifecta.

2 6 furlongs, purse $8,925, 3-year-olds and up, maiden claiming $12,500

6Ionize J Gutierrez5-1124
7Magestic Cat J Zunino15-1118
8Kamaaina Blue I Enriquez4-1118

Aint’ Tellin, a $25,000 yearling purchase, makes his career debut at the $12,500 level for trainer Mike Puhich, who has been good this season with first-time starters. Sthenios looks good but has been off since May 30 (and was scratched out of a race on June 27). Master Game has been third in both of his starts at Emerald Downs.

3 61/2 furlongs, purse $5,400, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500

5Wild Hoss J Zunino12-1124
6Givajunior Mint R Richard10-1124
7Royal Shrine D Lopez8-1124

Won Won Oh Five plunges in class for a trainer-jockey combo that has been quite successful. Advancement has been second in two straight races at this level. Sharp Focus seems to be rounding into good form.

4 61/2 furlongs, purse $7,450, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $7,500

4Square Jimmer J Gutierrez9-2118
7Its Guiness Time R Richard3-1118
8Debauch L Camacho-Flores10-1118

Dogleg Left has been facing much tougher competition and might be able to lead from gate to wire. Kahului Bluff also takes a big drop in claiming price. Exclusive Star has an experience edge, being a 6-year-old against mostly 3-year-olds.

5 1 mile, purse $7,200, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $5,000/$4,000

3Free Beer D Lopez6-1120
4Carl Command L Mawing10-1124
7Honour Family R Richard6-1117

Double Shuffle seems to break from the gate poorly in every race, but there appears to be enough pace in the race to set up his closing kick. He’s All Heart shoots for his third straight win. Bid for Pride has been first or second in 10 of 17 career starts.

6 61/2 furlongs, purse $12,700, 3-year-old, fillies, claiming $15,000

4See My Tail Lites E Kubinova8-1117
6Lake Piru A Sanguinetti12-1121

Point da Harbor is 3 for 3 this year and seems to keep getting better. Quiet Wisdom takes a big drop in class from a stakes race and runs for a claiming price for the first time. Sometimes a Lady will try to lead from gate to wire.

7 6 furlongs, purse $5,700, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $3,500

5Dead Eye J Rosales6-1124
6Power Fleet E Kubinova9-2124

Regal Valid can win with an effort similar to his last two starts. Southern Solution is dropping in class. Frisco Bound has been in the money in 11 of 15 career starts.

Best bet: Dogleg Left.
