|3||Jo B With Thee||J Whitaker||12||123|
|4||Get Well||R Bowen||5||119|
|6||Miss Madavor||R Richard||7/2||123|
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.
|2 11/16 miles, purse $6,400, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $4,000|
|2||Knight Club||L Mawing||9/5||117|

|1||American Council||J Zunino||5||123|
|3||The Doll Room||J Matias||8||120|
|5||Lumen Took It||D Lopez||7/2||120|
|6||Boss Dancer||R Richard||10||120|
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.
|3 1 mile, purse $5,500, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, maiden claiming $5,000|
|2||Ee Da How||D Lopez||2||123|
|7||Bell Wether||R Bowen||3||123|
|3||On Line Sweetie||C Doll||10||123|
|4||Lasting Smooch||G Mitchell||6||117|
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|
|7||Jail House Rocker||J Matias||4||119|

|5||Appealing Artie||D Lopez||3||123|
|2||Top Lady||R Richard||6||123|
|3||Nothin Like a Dame||L Gonzalez||5/2||123|
|4||Precious Pegasus||J Rosales||12||113|
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|
|4||Just Like Uptown||L Mawing||5/2||124|
|6||Stealth Fighter||I Enriquez||9/5||124|
|7||Bird Colonel||J Zunino||9/2||121|
|1||Joel N Jill||J Matias||6||115|
|2||Cielo Forever||L Camacho-Flores||15||124|
|3||Salsa Boy||D Lopez||12||121|
|5||Play Hard to Win||R Richard||6||121|
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|
|4||Hillside Select||L Mawing||2||118|
|7||No Claim Will Do||J Gutierrez||6||118|
|3||Nitro Road||D Lopez||5/2||124|
|1||Brilliant Thought||R Richard||10||118|
|2||Exclusive Star||I Enriquez||7/2||121|
|5||Kamaaina Blue||E Kubinova||8||118|
|6||Stoney River||R Bowen||8||115|
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|
|7||He's All Heart||L Mawing||5/2||124|
|6||Big Question||J Gutierrez||6||120|
|3||Koala Beach||R Richard||3||120|
|4||Chumaree Red||J Zunino||15||120|
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|
|6||Tabled With Gold||G Mitchell||5/2||123|
|5||Spot On Babe||L Mawing||9/5||119|
|3||Stephanie Plum||L Camacho-Flores||3||119|
|1||Havasu Falls||J Gutierrez||10||123|
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|
|3||Georgetta Stone||J Rosales||7/2||113|
|5||Two Socks||R Bowen||2||124|
|2||Killian's Red||M Cardoso||15||118|
|4||Something Magic||C Doll||10||124|
|6||Regazze Cat||L Camacho-Flores||4||118|
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.
