Buds a Flyin looks like the lone speed horse in the race. Bid for Pride is 1 for 1 on a sloppy track, and it might be mucky for this race. Majorca Gold is a solid fit at this level.

6 Takeitnumberthree R Camacho 15 124
8 Everydayimhustlin J Whitaker 20 118

Count Trevor gets a much better post after being stuck with No. 11 in his last race and racing wide. Brother Greg will be the likely favorite after a solid second-place finish in a field of 10 at this level. Big Black Cat has been third in each of his first three races.

7 All My Friends D Lopez 5/2 124
8 Cavanagh Bay I Enriquez 7/2 124

This is a tough, even race. Just Zoom Will Do drops to the bottom level after losing as the favorite. Harbor Wind makes his first start for trainer Rigoberto Velasquez after being claimed, and the trainer has a good record with horses in their first start after a claim. Master’s Bluff won at a slightly higher level when plunging in class for his last race.

7 Showmethemoneyjim A Sanguinetti 10 124

A K Racer won his past two starts at this level, but he is 0 for 2 on off tracks. Olympic Lights has won 16 of 43 starts at Emerald. Kool Comic also has a decent chance to win.

4 Jade Road R Bowen 6 124
5 City Twister J Zunino 5 124

Chaching Pete might get an easy early lead. Tribaltique takes a big drop in class. Chicks Dig Him has been second in three straight starts.

5 Laachem J Zunino 9/2 124

Ourshanghaiexpress has a good chance to lead the entire way. Cresent Bar isn’t consistent, but can win this race if it is one of his good days. Tahoe’s Prize will be rallying late.

BEST BET: Buds a Flyin
