4: Classy in Red (Murphy, Olmstead)1243-1

5: Corona Rattler (Swiontek, Livingston)1214-1

6: Cokato Cartel (Eikleberry, Harris)1242-1

COKATO CARTEL has two wins in past three starts and could be tough with the outside draw and a clean break. PYC POWERWAGON merits respect off the long layoff with two quick drills coming in. CAREX failed to fire in his 2015 debut last out but deserves another chance second off the layoff.

5: Jessie Miss Six (P. Canchari, Sheehan)1249-2

6: Bully B Quick (Delorme, McKinley)12410-1

7: Fastbacbaby (Swiontek, Livingston)1268-1

I AM RON BURGANDY gave way last out running at 300 yards and should appreciate the cutback with quick gate speed. PRIMA FIRE was last-out beaten favorite in her unveiling as the runner-up, obvious danger with her second career start. UNAFRAID supports the field's sharpest drill coming in.

5: Strictly Classy (Velazquez, Brinson)1192-1

6: Causemommasaidso (Sanchez, Perez)1236-1

7: Showbiz Dutchess (Thornton, Berndt)1144-1

STRICTLY CLASSY takes another drop in her third career effort and could prove dangerous if she can break her bad gate habits. New shooter LEGEND IN TIME has been training lights-out and all signs suggest she is cranked to go with top jockey Butler as the pilot. SHOWBIZ DUTCHESS projects to be the speed of the race after failing to hold the lead last out while leading most the way; has fighting chance if able to ration some of her speed.

4: Razorbill (Eikleberry, Chambers)1219-5

5: Go Gold (Sanchez, Westermann)1196-1

6: National (Butler, Rarick)1193-1

RAZORBILL keeps getting better each race and enters today off consecutive front-running victories. Has ability to pull away if unchallenged. NATIONAL will be chasing from the outside and has ability to swoop on if top pick sets a scalding pace. Veteran should be plenty fit shipping up from Tampa Bay. Expect ONLY LIQUOR and DOINMYSONGNDANCE to press the issue up front with decent early speed and first shot at Razorbill.

5: Denyit (Sanchez, Tracy Jr.)12320-1

6: Chocolate Delight (Vergara, Diodoro)1237-5

7: Spinning Slew (Lopez Jr., Fisher)12315-1

CHOCOLATE DELIGHT looks to be the day's best coming in from Santa Anita for trainer Diodoro. Not a winning machine in the least, but anything close to her previous efforts will get her picture taken. SURF QUEEN will lead the field as far as she can go as the pace-setter but failure as the favorite last three out is a concern. GOLDEN ROAD is a consistent closer who will be rolling late to get a piece of the action.

5: Hitchismyname (Richard, Bends)12310-1

6: Radiant Energy (Murphy, Amoss)1236-1

7: Courtmaster (Sanchez, Tracy Jr.)1238-1

GOTTA GET PAID plunges from allowance turf sprint to lower-level claimers, should get perfect setup pressing the pace off the rail with jockey Goncalves aboard. FORT LEWIS RIVERS sped clear to 12-length victory last out and could prove tough with repeat performance. CROWDED WARRIOR should keep Fort Lewis Rivers company up front and also comes off gate-to-wire win; has turned in three bullet drills for first appearance on the Canterbury track.

6: Mr. Obeso (Hernandez, Riecken)1236-1

7: V B and Me (Keith, Biehler)11910-1

8: Uncle Ron (Shepherd, Westermann)12312-1

CLASSIC BLAZE should prove plenty tough if race stays on the turf and might find himself on the lead with no true front-runner in the group. FRIARCRACKER has solid and encouraging work tab coming in for this year's campaign; trainer Bravo excels off the extended layoff hitting at 31 percent. V B AND ME and MR. OBESO are both playable if race is taken off the turf.

6: Dark Red (P. Canchari, O'Callaghan)1238-1

7: Princeapallee (Thornton, Padilla)1186-1

8: Sporting Holiday (Butler, Keen)1237-2

SPORTING HOLIDAY ran in a holding pattern on the turf last out off the 18-month absence and seeks to improve off that effort on the main track. If ready to roll, look for the seasoned veteran to be running late. KINGPIN RYNO should find himself on the lead as he did last out at Santa Anita before fading badly. Change of location might be the answer to carrying the speed down the stretch. SILVER HALO looks to improve off his merry-go-round performance on opening night here but might have needed to stretch his legs a bit.

9: Texas Bet (Joubert, Hanson)12315-1

In this deep field of uninspiring maidens, I'll give the slight nod to the senior of the group of misses, DOCS MISS VICTORY. The 6-year-old mare will once again shoot for her first win in her 11th attempt. GHAZI'S LAST SHOT and DUNKIRK VICTORY should appreciate the drop from maiden special weight in hopes of turning things around from previous races.
