(Del Mar opens July 18)

SEVENTYONE: First time starter for trainer Phil D’Amato took some money in this downhill $50K maiden claimer and really ran well, finishing third only losing by 1-3/4 lengths. He will love the 5-furlong turf course at Del Mar. $$$

PERFECTLY MAJESTIC: May have been best in the Siren Lure going down the hill but had a horrible trip with Corey Nakatani riding. Was steadied hard when in tight in upper stretch when unleashing a huge run and checked again off heels. Once clear he closed like a freight train to just miss by a length. $$$$$

VARANASI: Was most recently seen finishing 3rd at Del Mar last July. This filly came back in a straight maiden race going 5½ furlongs and was bet down to 6/5. We will give her another shot if sent longer.

OLIVER: Put this one on top of your list as he was much the best in this 5-furlong maiden race for 2yo. Had the rider lose his whip out of the gate and made a big four wide run. Was picking them up and laying them down closing like a flash to just miss the place by a half-length. $$$$$

KERSHAW: Peter Miller maiden was last seen running up the track at Del Mar back in November. Made a nice run here at 6/1 to finish second by 3/4 of a length behind the odds on winner. This race has him set for the win next out either at Los Al or Del Mar.

DONUT GIRL: Was getting on the grass for the first time in this downhill turf sprint. Just blasted home for the easy win with a ton left in the tank. We will see her going 5 furlongs at Del Mar
