We will take a shot and go for a single to start the players pick five using No. 7 Latest Craze off the layoff for Baffert. He was 7/5 in his last start back in March and will find a very fast pace to make his late run.
Maiden 2yo travel 4-1/2 furlongs, we will use two first time starters and one runner who has had a race. No. 5 Green With Eddie is a first time starter with the Reddam/O’Neill connections, he is out of the dam Marquis Diamond who has dropped 3 winners from 3 starters. No. 6 We Go Now is a first time starter out of the Dam Go Jaylo who has dropped 6 winners from 6 starters. No. 7 Carville is in from the Gate for Hollendorfer and ran third in his one start there for a different trainer, this will be his first start for his new barn. 5-6-7
No. 2 Hail Mary Play drops back to the level of her win and her claimed price. No. 3 Sooner Time and No. 4 Spicy Blonde both get big drops in class. 2-3-4
No. 5 Smooth Talker drops and gets Van Dyke back in the irons, Van Dyke has won with this mare three times. No. 7 Larocco gets her second start off the Mulhall claim and will go much better today. 5-7
Down the hill the go. No. 2 Entrechat gets the hot riding Prat back in the irons and her one win came with Prat riding down the hill. No. 6 Big Move is the one to beat as she has two wins and two seconds from her four downhill turf starts. No. 9 Mysterious Miracle gets a great post in this her second off the layoff, the last work says she is on go. 2-6-9
Exacta box 2-6-9
Maiden fillies and mares go 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 1 Sweetwater Gal is a first time starter for trainer Ellis, her work on May 25th says she can run. No. 2 C.C. Zipp comes off the layoff for Hollendorfer, she ran some big races as a 2yo. Trainer Phil D’Amato sends out two runners: No. 4 Leveler who exits our HTW list and No. 6 Complimentary a sneaky looking runner in from Turf Paradise. 1-2-4-6
We will go singling in the late pick four using No. 3 Lord Nelson off the layoff for Baffert, this one looks to outclass these. 3
Not often we see the day end with a downhill turf sprint but that is what we have here and No. 10 Summer Wine exits our HTW list as a $$$$$ play, her only danger could come from No. 8 Radiant Journey off the layoff. 10**-8
Exacta box 8-10 and win No. 10
CHECK FOR LATE SCRATCHES AND CHECK THAT THE SADDLE CLOTH NUMBERS MATCH OUR SELECTION NUMBERS.
