3Jo B With Thee J Whitaker12123
4Get Well R Bowen5119
6Miss Madavor R Richard7/2123

Foolish Miss lost by just a head to a big favorite in her last race and was 3½ lengths ahead of the third-place horse. Montelena has won three times this season at Emerald and drops in class. Have’n a Wild Time could improve with the return to a route race.

3The Doll Room J Matias8120
5Lumen Took It D Lopez7/2120
6Boss Dancer R Richard10120

Knight Club continues to drop down the class ladder and the leading jockey, Leslie Mawing, takes the mount. Stablemate Polly Ester Pompom is an improving horse. American Council will be rallying late.

3On Line Sweetie C Doll10123
4Lasting Smooch G Mitchell6117
5Benatar R Richard6123

Ee Da How takes a huge drop in class. Her last two tries on a fast track should be good enough to win. Weissstacy might have won her last start had she not run into traffic trouble. Bell Wether has been in the money in all three of her starts and stretches out in distance.

4 61/2 furlongs, purse $5,100, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $2,500

3Nothin Like a Dame L Gonzalez5/2123
4Precious Pegasus J Rosales12113
6Ifsowhynot R Bowen12113

Jail House Rocker makes his second start after a long layoff and he had a tough trip in his last start. Seattle Harbor shortens up after changing trainers, and her one win came at this distance. Appealing Artie has been improving.

5 1 mile, purse $5,100, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $2,500
PPHorseJockeyLineWt.

1Joel N Jill J Matias6115
2Cielo Forever L Camacho-Flores15124
3Salsa Boy D Lopez12121
5Play Hard to Win R Richard6121

Just Like Uptown has a great chance with a similar effort to his last start when he was second. Stealth Fighter is in good form. Bird Colonel drops in class to a level where he is usually very competitive.

6 11/16 miles, purse $7,950, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $7,500
PPHorseJockeyLineWt.
4Hillside Select L Mawing2118

2Exclusive Star I Enriquez7/2121
5Kamaaina Blue E Kubinova8118
6Stoney River R Bowen8115

Hillside Select goes from the Emerald Downs Derby to a $7,500 claiming race. No Claim Will Do was third against a tough group at this level in his last race. Nitro Road is in good form.

7 1 mile, purse $7,200, 3-year-olds and up, claiming $5,000/$4,000
PPHorseJockeyLineWt.
5Janero I Enriquez6120

6Big Question J Gutierrez6120
1Whiskeyonthehouse J Matias12120
2Leadership R Bowen2124
3Koala Beach R Richard3120
4Chumaree Red J Zunino15120

Janero will be rallying late in a race that could set up well for a closer because there are many in this race with good early speed. He’s All Heart and Big Question are in great form, but this is a race where you can make a case for every horse.

8 61/2 furlongs, purse $17,950, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $32,000/$25,000
PPHorseJockeyLineWt.

3Stephanie Plum L Camacho-Flores3119
1Havasu Falls J Gutierrez10123
2Beautranda D Lopez12115
4Hetty J Matias7/2119

Tabled With Gold has only been out of the money once in 10 starts and that was in a stakes race. Spot On Babe is in good form. Stephanie Plum also has a decent chance in a very competitive race.

9 61/2 furlongs, purse $5,500, 3-year-olds and up, maiden claiming $5,000
PPHorseJockeyLineWt.
7Lamparo J Zunino3118

1Sassaree O Gonzalez10119
2Killian's Red M Cardoso15118
4Something Magic C Doll10124
6Regazze Cat L Camacho-Flores4118

Lamparo has a speed-figure edge in this very weak field. First-time starter Georgetta Stone wouldn’t have to be great to beat this group. Two Socks has been off since January. He was in the money in five of 11 starts at Portland.

BEST BET: Foolish Miss.
