No. 5 Vagabond Princess exits a tough downhill turf race and may like the move to the dirt. No. 6 Jeana Baby gets her second start, she was well bet in her debut race but may not have liked the sloppy track. 2-4-5-6

Race 5

40k claimers go a flat mile on the grass. No. 6 Tribal Tribute is looking for his 4th straight win, he had his claim voided last time he ran but comes back at the same price tag and Bejarano rides for D’Amato, we think he wins his fourth straight race.

No. 5 Sacred Ovation has big early speed, he exits the same race as No Contingency and gets his first start off the Kristan Mulhall claim, Maldonado will be gunning from the bell. No. 6 Gnarly Dude also gets his first start off the claim and is in tip top form. 2-3-5-6

Race 7

No. 1 Two Steps of Glory comes off a good maiden win when beating 10 others, he fits with these and is in good form. No. 7 Casino Fever looks the one to beat off his last win here at this 6-1/2 furlong distance. 1-7

Race 8

No. 2 Peggy Sue’s Loose never runs a bad race and the turnback to a flat mile on the grass will help her chances. No. 6 Diamond Cut exits the same race as Peggy Sue and finished second in front of her, she will be flying with a big late run. 2-6

Exacta box 2-6

Race 9

No. 1 Prowling Around is a first-time starter out of the dam Up On Her Toes who has dropped 7 winners from 7 starters. No. 4 Straight N Strong is the speed and will try and take them wire-to-wire. 1-4
