Bcr Beat the Traffic was a solid fourth last month in his first race after a long layoff and is one of two in this field with experience at Emerald. Mr Easy Okie has won his past three races, but has been off since October. A Distant Memory was in good form last fall in Portland and can win if he’s ready after a long layoff.

1 Famous Jessica I Enriquez 9-2 123
4 Sun City D Hoonan 5-2 123
5 Angels Can Be Wild Cmacho-Flrs 3-1 123
2 Fly Away C Papineau 7-2 123
SCR Warren’s Rock Art Scratched
3 Fiesty Lass E Kubinova 6-1 123

Famous Jessica faded badly after chasing a hot pace in her last race, but she gets a better post today and she has won at this distance. Sun City has been in the money in 26 of 36 races at Emerald and she has been second 10 times at this distance. Angels Can Be Wild was second at 22-1 in her last start.

2 Fantasyville D Hoonan 5-2 123
6 Purple Hays A Snguinetti 2-1 117
5 Devils Dragonfly M Hardison 6-1 118
1 Cheeza Kay Camacho-Flrs 8-1 123
3 Miss Top Nite L Gonzalez 10-1 123
4 Jacobita R Bowen 3-1 123

Fantasyville has won nine times at Emerald and had a nice workout last week in preparation for her first start since January. Her 15 career wins (in 59 starts) is more than the rest of the field combined. Purple Hays is in good form, unlike most of the rest of the horses in this field. Devil’s Dragonfly was pulled up in her last race last month, but she fits well with this group.

8 Spending J Whitaker 3-1 124
4 Shuddle D Hoonan 5-1 124
7 Wisest Cat A Snguinetti 4-1 124
1 Dead Eye C Papineau 15-1 124
2 Marenmag R Richard 10-1 118
3 Carl Command L Gonzalez 6-1 118
5 Something Magic Camacho-Flrs 20-1 124
6 Mister Q. P. R Bowen 6-1 124
9 Real Premium N Chaves 9-2 124

Spending finds a soft spot in his ninth try at getting his first win. Shuddle was just more than a length behind the top pick in his last race. Wisest Cat has not raced in two years, so he is a real question mark.

4 Buddy Dave Cmacho-Flrs 3-1 124
2 War Wizard D Lopez 2-1 124
3 Rockmystar I Enriquez 5-2 124
1 Lit’l in Din Boy R Richard 7-2 124
SCR Surfliner Scratched
5 Istishaary E Kubinova 8-1 124

Buddy Dave drops in class and there should be enough early pace to set up his closing kick. War Wizard scratched out of a race last weekend to run in this one. Rockmystar has won four of his 12 starts at Emerald.

6 6 ½ furlongs, purse $13,750, 3-year-olds and up, fillies and mares, claiming $17,500/$15,000

4 Roarified I Enriquez 9-5 119
3 Private Fortune C Papineau 3-1 119
1 Cheese Danish D Hoonan 6-1 119
2 Just Have’n Fun J Whitaker 10-1 119
SCR River of Aces Scratched
5 Mum’s Joke D Lopez 6-1 119

Stephanie Plum is in good form and will likely get the early lead. Roarified has won 9 of 13 starts at Emerald, but takes a big jump up in class. Private Fortune hasn’t raced since September, but she fits well at this level.

6 Freedomslastknight D Hoonan 6-1 124
1 Kool Comic R Bowen 5-2 124
5 Nene A Snguinetti 2-1 124
2 Newaukum Creek Camacho-Flrs 10-1 124
3 Taphar M Hardison 15-1 119
4 Seven Demons E Kubinova 3-1 124
7 Rainier J Whitaker 10-1 124

Freedomslastknight was in a tough group for this level in his last race, but could surprise today. Kool Comic can improve after finishing fourth as the 3-5 favorite last month. Nene has been in solid form and makes his first career start at Emerald.

Best bet: Buddy Dave
