2 Strange Luck G Mitchell 4-1 119
3 Lady Aragorn E Kubinova 6-1 119

Ducoti could get an easy lead as she appears to be the only horse in the field with a lot of early speed. Agoodlawyer Willdo and Better to Be Lucky take big drops in class to try to rebound from poor efforts.

In another paceless race, Tax Enough could get an easy lead and is dropping in class for the leading trainer, Jeff Metz. Joel N Jill shortens up in distance after being overmatched against a much tougher group. Gold Tie Please faces winners for the first time after rallying to beat maidens in his Emerald Downs debut.

Big Black Cat can take a big step forward with the drop in class. Whiskey Prince will try to lead from gate to wire. Barton Hill did well at this distance here last year.

9 Sunshine Candy J Gutierrez 6-1 123

American Council had a tough trip in her last race and should improve in a tough, even race. Tribal Valentine was gaining quickly at the end in his Emerald debut two weeks ago, losing by a half-length. Promiscuous Harbor is in good form.

7 Double Shuffle R Bowen 3-1 120
8 Big Question R Richard 6-1 120

Chu and I should be ready for his top effort in his third race after a layoff. Uzziah ran well at this level here last year and his trainer, Joe Toye, is off to a hot start at Emerald after arriving from Phoenix’s Turf Paradise. Whiskeyonthehouse was third, a place behind the top pick, in his last race.

4 Anitewithyou G Mitchell 7-2 119
6 Seattle Harbor L Camacho-Flores 8-1 113

Mini Candy is in good form and should be able to save early ground from the inside post. Lumen Took It has been in the money in eight of 10 career races. Lil Barbie Doodle is the only horse who is proven in route races, but all her success has been on the turf.

SCR Glo Bou Liza Scratched - -

Supreme Ballerina has won twice at the meet and was scratched out of a race last weekend to run in this race. Kilauea has been in the money in 13 of 16 starts at Emerald, but just two of those were wins. Snackable was derailed by a bad start while being well-bet in her Emerald Downs debut two weeks ago.

Best bet: Tax Enough
