Race 1

No. 5 Moon De French exits our HTW list and looks like a short price winner in this five horse field which kicks off Sunday racing at Del Mar – yes -- a five horse field in race one on Sunday. 5

Race 2

No. 5 Moon Over Malibu has had her chances but ran a good one last time out, No. 9 Sweet Allie Marie is back quick as she just ran here on July 25, No. 10 Artistryandrhythm gets a drop in class and the bug boy, No. 11 Juicy Lucy gets a drop in class and is the stablemate of Malibu. 5-9-10-11

Key Play

$2 double

1st 5

2nd 5-9-10-11 for $8

Race 3

No. 1 Hot N’ Dusty will be sitting back right off the pace looking to pick up the pieces late, No. 3 Jehan will be right there from start to finish, No. 4 Midnight Crush is the one they will have to run down. 1-3-4

Race 4

No. 2 I Swear gets off the grass and a turn back in distance, she will be very tough down the lane. No. 4 Past Curfew looks dangerous off the layoff, No. 6 Cinnamon Dove exits our HTW list, if she runs back to her last she wins. 2-4-6

Key Play

$2 double

3rd 1-3-4

4th 2-4-6 for $18

Race 5

Bench The Judge No. 2 will get an extra half a furlong today and that could get this 2yo colt home on top if Gomez can find clear sailing. No. 4 John Scott and No. 8 A Plus Topper are both live first time starters. 2-4-8

Key Play

$2 double

4th 2-4-6

5th 2-4-8 for $18

Race 6

With all the speed in here it will set things up for No. 6 Sensational Score who is owned and trained by Mike Mitchell, jockey Rosario will have him flying late and he has never been out of the money at this distance. 6

Key Play

$10 win and place 6 for $20

Race 7

No. 1 Bell Canyon Road has the speed and the rail, she will take them as far as she can on the front end. No. 4 Ruffled Feathers has run second in both of her turf starts and gets a good turf jock in Valdivia, No. 5 Susan’s Wildcat looks to be sitting on the win but just cannot break through, Solis sticks with her as he jumps mounts from Ruffled Feathers. No. 9 Over Andover ran huge in defeat as she was blocked through the stretch, she will need clear sailing. 1-4-5-9

Key Play

$1 exacta box 1-4-5-9 for $12

$2 Q 9 with 1-4-5 for $6

$2 double

6th 6

7th 1-4-5-9 for $8

Race 8

No. 6 Well Armed was last seen winning by 14 lengths when winning the world cup in Saudi, he has won over 5 million but the question is if he has recovered, some don’t. No. 8 Kelly Leak exits a huge key race, she was last seen winning the Sunland Derby, the race Mind That Bird exited to win the Kentucky Derby and Mythical Power who ran second came back and won the Lone Star Derby, he is only a 3yo but his style fits. 6-8

Race 9

No. 4 Country Tune is sharp and has won at the distance, No. 5 Trevor’s Clever will be coming from far back, 4-5

Race 10

No. 5 Objectified had a horrible trip last time out, he exits our HTW list and looks set for his best in this his second off the layoff. No. 7 Reckless Capote is a 13-time loser but sometimes these long time maiden losers wake up when they smell that ocean air. 5-7
