1 Ransom Canyon - Claimed by Peter Miller and spotted nicely to win first out; expect more speed under Edwin Maldonado.

Long Shot - 6 Londinium

Race 2 - 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $52,000, Optional claiming $62,500, 3-year-olds and up

1 Hear the Ghost - Graded stakes winner returns from a 9-month hiatus; he’s good enough, key is if he’s tight enough.

3 Ready for More - Claimed by Mike Pupye off a large effort; Pupye should take a bow for the great win by Mizdirection.

Long Shot - 2 Cyclometer

Race 3 - 1 1/16th miles (turf), Purse $45,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

3 Public Interest - John Shirreffs kept most of his good ones in New York; he has some good ones in SoCal like Rookie Sensation.

1 Thunder Cole - Should carve out a nice rail skimming trip; Mario Gutierrez was riding very well at Santa Anita Park.

Long Shot - 9 Prospector’s Trick

Race 4 - 6 furlongs, Purse $27,000, Maiden claiming $50,000, Cal-breds, Fillies, 2-year-olds

7 Eddies Curl - The one time she was favored she ran terribly; racing for a price tag tonight, this should be her time.

Long Shot -4 Mudge

Race 5 - 6 furlongs (turf), Purse $30,000, Claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

10 Sleep Tight - The outer post in Inglewood sprints is tough to overcome; suspect Corey Nakatani will find a spot early.

Long Shot - 2 Promiscuoussuances

Race 6 - 1 1/16th miles, Purse $16,000, Claiming $8,000, 3-year-olds and up

2 Moment of Weakness - Chantal has done some good riding for Vann Belvoir; this one has speed so see how the track is playing.

4 Tamarack Smarty - Tough cagey veteran lands on this bottom rung tonight; he’s beaten much better in his nice career.

Long Shot - 6 Unusual Jazz

Race 7 - 1 mile (turf), Purse $48,000, Allowance, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

8 Miss Well Molded - Doug O’Neill claims and spots in this first level allowance; been a teaser many times at this harder level.

Long Shot - 3 Level Headed

Race 8 - 6 furlongs, Purse $18,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

6 Renegade Ride - Tim Yakteen has very quietly had a solid season; lost the very talented Pointsoffthebench last week.
