Bejarano who was on Jade With Envy gets on No. 7 Heat Du Jour for Hollendorfer and this mare has a bullet work, Nakatani who was on Heat Du Jour moves to Jade With Envy and those are the two we will be on. 2-7
No. 4 Ranulf comes off a good win and gets his first start off the Mark Glatt claim, he has won 3 of his 6 starts here and will find the perfect pace set up for his late run, we will take our shot and single in the pick five. 4
They go 1-1/4 on the grass, No. 6 Neveradoubt came home fast to win the $200k Snow Chief at 1-1/8 and will have no problem getting this trip, No. 7 Crucero exits the Grade II Charlie Whittingham and has the Kent D and Keith D hook up and he will be a juicy price. 6-7

Maiden fillies and mares go a flat mile on the grass, No. 2 Arewehavingfunyet ran a big race first out going down the hill and she will love the longer distance, No. 5 Scandal exits out HTW list off a scandalous take down caused by No. 8 Cayseway Carolyn who finished a no threat 3rd but jockey Espinoza check her and got the take down of the winner and she was moved up to second. All and all No. 5 Scandal gets the job done today. 5
No. 1 Cook Inlet got the win one race back at 67/1, he never ran a step next out at 6/1 and now gets his first start off the Carava claim and gets a jockey upgrade, No. 3 Fit to Rule gets his first start off the Gary Stute claim and he gets Tyler in the irons.

The 2yo fillies take front stage and we loved the way No. 4 Faith Pacer fought back after being passed and come back to win going away, she also has a very nice last work, Mike Smith gets on No. 1 Star of Munster who won her first start at even money. 1-4
Maidens going 1-1/16 on the dirt, No. 1 Tossin Bullets gets his second start for Baffert and he’s bred to go long, Baffert also sends out No. 5 Nob Hill who he still hasn’t given up on, they paid $700k for him. No. 7 Rosicky exits our HTW list as a $$$$$ play and is the one to beat. No. 8 Volume exits the same race as Rosicky and is a must use. 7 ***-1-5-8
