3Charming Budha J Matias10-1121
5Cielo Forever R Richard6-1124
7Air Grinder J Rosales15-1115

Gold Tie Please cuts back in distance after two route races. He meets a weak field, and his typical effort could be good enough to win. Play Hard to Win and Jimmeny Creek are rarely close at the end, but their speed figures indicate they should be competitive against this group.

2 5 furlongs, purse $13,225, 2-year-old, fillies, maiden claiming $25,000

2Iwannabeadivatoo C Doll9-2117
4Springsprangsprung I Enriquez8-1117
7Preachinmerit R Richard4-1117

Twelfth Fan drops in class from a stakes race. Raesbeautifulhope was claimed for $25,000 out of her last start, and the leading jockey is aboard. Andiamo Deb seems to be regressing after showing some promise in her career debut.

3 6 furlongs, purse $5,400, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $2,500

1Forbidden Kee I Enriquez8-5123

3Redseasalt C Doll12-1123
4Bullys Blond Girl J Zunino15-1123
6Miss Fast Eddie A Sanguinetti9-2117

Forbidden Kee is very consistent, and her typical race should be good enough to win. Come on Cozzene has won two of her last three races. Opening Buzz retains leading jockey Leslie Mawing.

4 6 furlongs, purse $5,300, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $2,500

2Special Buttons C Doll12-1119
4Kiss in the City J Rosales5-1119
6Enter Back D Lopez15-1119
8Agirlsgottalive E Kubinova15-1121

Brats Brat has been in the money in seven of eight starts this year and seems overdue for her yearly win. Hollywood Harbor could get an easy lead in a rather paceless race. Nobluffjustgo rarely runs a bad race.

5 1 mile, purse $7,450, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $7,500

4More Strawberries D Lopez2-1124
7Bluegrass Fox Trot L Mawing5-2118

1Power Next R Bowen8-1124
2Its Guiness Time R Richard15-1118
3Inviting Roman I Enriquez10-1118
6Diamond Drop E Kubinova8-1124

More Strawberries drops in class again after going too fast, too early in fading to third in in his last race. Bluegrass Fox Trot looks good if you can excuse the last race, a flop as the 4-5 favorite. No Claim Will Do got burned out in the same speed battle the top pick got into last race.

6 6 furlongs, purse $7,200, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $5,000/$4,000
PPHorseJockeyLineWt.
2Rainier Ice G Mitchell9-5124

6Leadership R Bowen5-1120
1Carl Command L Mawing7-2124
3Mr. Top Kat I Enriquez3-1124
4Popular Pick J Gutierrez10-1120

Rainier Ice drops in class after finishing second as the 1-2 favorite. He has a slight edge in a good, even race. Chaching Pete seems to be regaining his form. Leadership has been in the money in 21 of 32 career starts.

7 51/2 furlongs, purse $5,500, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, maiden claiming $5,000

2Wemissstacy L Mawing3-1117
4Twilight Harbor I Enriquez5-1117
5Image in the Moon R Richard7-2117
1Anjamima R Bowen4-1117
3Platinum Kisses J Zunino8-1117
6Johannas Opinion L Camacho-Flores15-1117
7River Call J Matias9-2123
8Wine At the Park D Lopez15-1117

Wemissstacy finished second in her first try against state-breds and now gets a jockey switch to the top rider. Twilight Harbor and Image in the Moon drop in class after poor debuts, and could step forward.

Best bet: Forbidden Kee.
