No. 3 Kopitar gets his second start at this $50k maiden level and first off the Sadler claim, we love the big jock change and the last work. No. 7 Papa Gulf is the stablemate of Kopitar and will be the price play of the two. 3-7
No. 1 Core Beliefs gets Mike Smith on the stretchout, he lost at even money last out and looks to redeem. No. 4 Longden ran a good second at this distance last out and looks the one to beat. No. 3 Regulate is the stablemate of Longden and will be the price play of the two. 3-1-4
No. 1 Second Gear just missed last out at this level when the bug boy Ceballos got on him, he is back today. No. 3 Tequila Blanco is the only first time starter in this very soft field. 1-3
Exacta box 1-3 and win and place 3
No. 3 Two Thirty Five gets his first start off the $25k Baltas claim and it’s a good sign that he places him in this claim proof spot. No. 4 Super Duper Cooper looks live at a nice price. 3-4
No. 1 Pantsonfire comes off a solid win and likes this mile turf distance. No. 2 Fizzy Friday just missed last out at this level and distance and Prat sticks. No. 5 Shazara gets a jock switch and back to the distance of his last win. 2-1-5
We will take a shot here and single No. 8 Defense Minister who gets his second start and was well bet in his first, he will like this longer trip today. 8
Win and place 8
When Jonathan Wong ships in we take notice and he brings in No. 1 Droulliard and we love that Geovanni Franco gets the call. No. 4 Preacher Roe fits at this level and is in good form. No. 6 Desert General and No. 7 Popular Kid both drop in class in what is a wide open race. 1-4-6-7
No. 2 Duranga gets blinkers on, a drop in class and Prat who won with her the only time he rode this filly back on, all systems are a go!!!
8th 2 (.50 cent pick four cost $6.00).
If not alive going into the 7th play a late double.
