Run Atom won at this level and distance two races ago. Full Effect has just two wins in 44 starts, but has been in the money in all three of his Emerald starts. Cavanagh Bay might like the quick turnaround as his last race was six days ago.
Fragrant Harbor will likely be favored and deservedly so. She lost by a head in her career debut two weeks ago and it was 4¾ lengths back to the third-place horse. Mylast Sweet Pea drops into the claiming ranks after finishing third in her career debut. Mz Dyno finished right behind the second pick in her debut.
SCRATCHED: Train Freeze
Agoodlawyer Willdo goes for her second straight win. She’sontopyodeling drops in class to the level where she won straight. Our Little Hen is in good form.
SCRATCHED: Graceful MInou
Sis McGain scratched out of a race Friday to run in this one. She was stuck way outside in post No. 10 in her last start and faded badly. Expect a much better effort today. Parkers Pirate was second in her last race, losing by a length and was 2¾ lengths clear of the third-place horse. Anitewithyou has had some good workouts in preparation for her career debut.
SCRATCHED: Swiss Lightning
Olympic Lights drops to the bottom level and the 16-time winner at Emerald should have enough left at age 9 to beat this field. Mufaajy rarely runs a bad race. Fighting City Hall won a similar race in his last start, but that was six weeks ago.
SCRATCHED: Big Bad Brown
Chicks Dig Him finds a field with a lot of speed to set up his closing kick. M Two Forty is in great form. Wowie Maui appears to be the fastest of the early-speed horses in the fast.
Chilcotin finished second in her debut to a horse that returned to win a stakes race Sunday. Sunpenny has finished second in both of her starts. Reigning, a $50,000 yearling purchase, makes her career debut.
Goin to the Window can save ground from the inside post and might finally best her stablemate, Stopshoppindebbie. Blueberry Smoothie is a good bet to finish third for the fourth straight time.
Stylish Margin might have won her last race if she had not encountered traffic issues. Chromatose has yet to win in 16 starts but has been second or third 12 times. Sweetcherrypie makes her career debut for a trainer (Tom Wenzel) who excels with first-time starters.
