Allowance fillies and mares go down the hill. No. 4 Mum’s Truckee has been routing with good success as she just got beat by a neck last time out. No. 5 Luxuriance won sprinting on the Hollywood 6 furlong turf course and may get the jump on them.

No. 6 Italian Rules is one very tough 8-year-old who has won five of his nine starts here including his last, he now gets his first start off the Bill Spawr claim. No. 8 Kate’s Event will find a very fast pace up front and she will be flying late and just could pick up the pieces. 4-6-8

No. 8 Rock This Way could end up the lone speed in here with the drop to this level. No. 1 Mr. Make Believe will be tracking from the rail. 1-8

Race 8

No. 2 Victoria’s on Fire will show all of her speed with the drop to this level, she could get brave.

No. 7 Callous Effect looks to be a dangerous shipper with Gomez sticking around to ride. No. 11 No Fear Baby is a live first time starter who draws Bejarano. 2-4-7-11
