The rail was not the place to be last week but it did get better this past Sunday and we will use No. 1 He Will who will try and run down the Peter Miller runner No. 7 Oil. 1-7
Exacta box 1-7 and win and place 1
No. 3 Worldwide hesitated out of the gate in his first start but still ran on to pick up the show dough in a race in which the place runner came back for the win next time out, he will like the extra half a furlong today. No. 7 Where Was Eddie also gets his second start, he almost went wire-to-wire in his debut when sent off as the 2/1 favorite. 3-7
They go five furlongs on the grass, No. 1 Serbian Syclone ran good at this turf distance at Golden Gate and will be part of the early pace, No. 2 Jimmy Bouncer comes off the layoff for O’Neill and won all three of his starts before going on the shelf. No. 4 Clever Royal won going down the hill at Santa Anita and will be the one to fear late. 1-2-4
No. 1 Gusto’s Gal has been looking for a race and is by the hot young sire J P’s Gusto, No. 6 Rich Girl gets off the grass and back to a sprint, she drops back in for a tag. 1-6
No. 3 Land Over Sea exits our HTW list off a solid try first out of the box going 5-1/2 furlongs on the Los Al dirt, she will try going long on the grass today and her breeding says can do. No. 6 Feeling Lucky is a first-time Lookin At Lucky runner for the top connections of Kent and his Bro Keith. No. 7 Warm Endowment ran a good second in her one start and is bred for the trip and surface. 3-6-7
Exacta box 3-6-7 and win and place 3
No. 3 Bonus Spin comes off the layoff for the red hot Mullins barn, No. 8 Anita Marie also comes off the layoff and looks live with Bejarano getting the call. 3-8
No. 3 Kyankes is on a win every other race pattern and this is her win race with Bejarano getting back on, he was on for both of her wins, No. 5 Lookin for Money gets a slight drop in class and although she loses Bejarano to Kyankes she gets Prat who is a master turf jock. 3-5
No. 1 Shakahari exits the Newfound Gold race and moves into a very live spot. No. 2 George’s Main Man fits at this level and that last work here says he is on go. No. 10 Jimmy’s Date is one of those sneaky New Mexico Peter Miller runners who looks live with Joe Talamo getting the call. 1-2-10
