You really need to hit the all button in this downhill turf sprint. If not we suggest No. 3 Ramona’s Wildcat who ran good sprinting five furlongs on the grass at Del Mar and No. 4 Sayes So who owns a win over the course. 3-4 (all)

Race 4

No. 4 Nightly News is the one to beat in here off a troubled last trip, Martin Garcia gets back on. No. 8 Mor Spirit exits our HTW list as a $$$$$ play, he is the stablemate of the Nightly News. What a one two punch! 4-8

No. 7 What a Twist exits our HTW list off a nice win last out first on this circuit, she gets her first start off the claim and looks tough right back. No. 8 Agustina de Aragon looks to be sitting on a big effort. 7-8

Race 6

No. 6 Frat Boy showed renewed energy last out. No. 7 Kenjiislucky gets the stretch back out and will try and take them wire-to-wire. No. 8 Tiz Jolie last won back in February when Bejarano rode him, he is back on today. 6-7-8

Race 7

The runner we like in this mile turf race is No. 12 Buymeabond who exits our HTW list but he is stuck on the also list. If he does not get in we will use No. 2 Anythingscookin the speed, No. 7 Small Town Cop who runs good every other race and this is his good race. No. 10 Hobbits Hero has won 3 of his 4 starts here all at this mile turf distance. 2-7-10 (12).

Race 8

We will need to go five deep in this $20k maiden claimer for fillies and mares traveling 6-1/2 furlongs on the dirt starting with No. 2 Bolt Up who drops in with maiden claimers after showing good early speed last out in what was her first start. No. 4 Kiss My Face who just failed when dropped to this level in her last start. No. 5 Geistreiter who exits our HTW list as a $$$ play, she will be the one running late. No. 7 Flowinwiththebreez who drops and gets the bug boy Bruno Panicucci and No. 9 Seaward Cottage who drops and adds more speed to the race. 2-4-5-7-9
