1: Miss Courageous Lady (Pinon,Hybsha)122/12-1

2: Streakology (Cruz, Hardy)122/6-1

7: Jess Paint This (Rosier,Olmstead)122/10-1

8: Jeans Capi (Goodwin, Hybsha)122/4-1

JESS PAINT THIS threw in the towel last out in futurity race; expect better performance tonight vs. softer. JEANS CAPI gets dream post with hot jockey. ROYAL SENATOR and TELLERITA appear to be the horses to beat in this closely matched field.

2: Half Dome Dude (Vergara,Diodoro)123/2-1

3: World Famous Sam T (S.Bethke,T.Bethke)123/6-1

4: Five Seasons (Ramgeet, Diodoro)123/9-5

5: Handsome Roy (Mojica, Silva)119/8-1

6: Jebias (Butler, McShane)123/6-1

Robertino Diodoro sends out the top two morning line favorites in HALF DOME DUDE and FIVE SEASONS. I’ll give Half Dome Dude the nod with the better price coming from off the pace with projected quick fractions in front of him. KENJISLUCKY is tough to ignore at a price while flying late with top jockey Canchari aboard. JEBIAS enters with consecutive wins and too will be compromised by the fast pace in the stalking position.

3 About 7½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming: $12,500. Purse: $14,500

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: James T. (A.Canchari, Turco)123/6-1

12: Giant Gamble (Ramgeet,Keller)123/12-1

13: Ready Cat (Butler, McShane)118/12-1

14: Pepper Prince (Rosier, Olmstead)123/15-1

MR. ARTURO’s last effort on the turf was a driving win; now faces a softer version cutting back in distance for strong connections. SUNDAY PROHIBITION just missed last out, rolling late and splitting rivals in competitive performance. PRINCE GALLOVIC is going to be a huge price as lone speed in the field, might last longer than most think.

4 About 5 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance optional claiming: $35,000. Purse: $34,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Stoupinator (A.Canchari,Robertson)119/5-1

2: Makinmymark (Rosier, Lund)119/8-1

3: Lady Paislee (Velazquez,Robertson)119/8-1

4: Betsy Boots (Stevens, Broberg)119/9-2

5: Richies Sweetheart (Baird, Rivelli)119/9-5

6: Manille (Butler, Robertson)123/5-2

RICHIES SWEETHEART is strictly the one to beat with strong class edge over the field. Hit the gate last out leaving the break and never had a chance in out-of-state stakes race. Going to be tough to catch with clean start. MANILLE exits gate-to-wire at this level and distance and is main challenger to top choice. Expect a battle on the lead between these two. BETSY BOOTS projects to stalk the speed and is my choice for the upset if things get too heated.

5 1 mile. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming: $6,250. Purse: $10,500

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Kilroy (Mojica, Litfin)123/7-2

2: English Town (Butler,Rhone)119/5-1

8: Cindy Sails Away (Velazquez,Berndt)119/4-1

9: Good Smoke (A.Canchari, Spencer)123/8-1

YA ANTABTTSY ships in from Santa Anita for trainer Diodoro after giving way against much tougher last out. Never raced this cheap in his brief career and might need inspection before race. ENGLISH TOWN too drops to lowest level of his racing career and should be arriving late when things unfold with Butler aboard. KILROY stretches out from sprinting and should come out flying from the gate starting from the fence.

6 6½ furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden special weight. Purse: $32,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Follow the Spiders (Butler, Rhone)119/5-2

7: Notorious Miss (Stevens, Silva)119/7-2

8: Classy Star (Goodwin, McFarlane)119/20-1

9: Cozzy Kinda Love (Clark, McKinley)119/15-1

NOTORIOUS MISS hopped out of the gate last out but finished well enough to get up for the third spot. Positive jockey switch and added half-furlong might be the answer to get her first win. KANDY SWEEP is the one to catch but comes in with three straight runner-up finishes. Might be best used underneath. FOLLOW THE SPIDERS is drawn to the inside and should be tough to fend off with ground-saving trip to stretch run.

7 1 mile. 3-year-olds and up. Allowance. Purse: $33,000

#: Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Precious Passion (Castro, Riecken)123/6-1

8: Queen Sammy (Goodwin, L.Rarick)118/20-1

9: More Mona More (Ramgeet, Thompson)123/15-1

OCTAVIA HILL returns to the main track after a couple of so-so efforts on the lawn. Best effort to date was on muddy surface three back. Rate higher with rain. UNBRIDLED MAYHEM exits high-quality race and should be live on the drop. Wouldn’t be surprised to see early speed with Vergara aboard. SASSY PRANCE is usually in the hunt when things get interesting but is light on winning form.

6: Gamer Babe (Mojica, Silva)123/3-1

7: Baby Beach (Goodwin, McFarlane)119/5-1

8: Nasty Lucy (Cruz, Ibarra)123/9-2

NASTY LUCY is strictly the one to catch to get the win shipping up from Prairie Meadows. Winner last out by four lengths. ORPHAN SHOES exits maiden-breaking win as the favorite and could prove tough to fend off in later stages. GAMER BABE usually gets a paycheck when she runs, but barn’s had a slow summer. Best used in second or third spot.

8: Wanamingo (A.Canchari, Wolff)123/15-1

9: Thats Awe Mine (Castro, Brinson)119/4-1

REAL NICE is tonight’s best bet after running second despite an awkward break on a sloppy track. Expect big performance on dry track. MIJA TONI owns gate speed to get out quickly and will attempt to sneak away from the field. BONITA UNO ran respectably in both starts but will have to step it up a notch to get the win.
