Race 1

(2) Belief shows a decent race over the track so she gets the call in this spot.  Exacta boxes 2-3, 2-5

Race 2

(1) Del Mar Sunset's speed from the rail is a big plus here and the class drop makes her the one to beat.  Exacta boxes 1-2, 1-5

Race 3

(5) Flatter Me Big won easily here earlier in the meet and trainer Tom Amoss is very good off the claim.  Exacta boxes 5-4, 5-3, 5-2

Race 4

(6) LT's Best Tale shows three works locally and the drop in class makes this one the pick.   Exacta boxes 6-5, 6-7

Race 5

(5) Sister Blues showed big improvement first-time out on turf and has followed that up with good local works.  Watch (7) Dyna's Recoleta as Dynaformer offspring loves this turf course.  Exacta boxes 5-2, 5-1, 5-7

Race 6

(3) Conquest Superstar caught a tough field last time and should find this spot a little softer, plus the turnback from a longer distance is appealing.  Exacta boxes  3-5, 3-2, 3-7

Race 7

(4) Circus Performer should improve in the second start off the layoff and he also got caught with a wide trip last time.  Exacta boxes 4-3, 4-5, 4-7

Race 8

(3) Stylish Quality got off to a bad start in the 2016 debut and I would expect big improvement--and the early speed is a nice asset here.  Exacta boxes 3-5, 3-7, 3-8

Race 9

(4) Conquest Sabre Cat was much improved in the '16 debut for Casse and followed up with a good local work.  Exacta boxes 4-7, 4-5

Late Pick 4 (starts in 6th):   3,5,2,7 with 4,3,5 with 3,5,7,8 with 4,7
