1 Top Kisser – No shame running a distant second to Reneesgotzip; saves all the ground inside and completes the job.

Long Shot – 2 Bennett Jean

Race 6 – 1 mile, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

1 One Lucky Dane – Moves from outside to inside today while switching to the main dirt track; clearly is bred to handle the stuff.

7 Kathleen Rose – Spit the bit late last time in a rare loss at a mile and at Santa Anita; chance for redemption in an easier spot.

Long Shot – 8 Theatre Star

Race 8 – 6 furlongs, $300,000 Santa Anita Spring Championship, 3-year-olds and up

3 Goldencents – Doug O’Neill can’t enter him in the Breeders’ Cup due to suspension; suspect Leandro Mora, or another, will be the trainer.

Long Shot – 6 Ankenny Hill

Race 9 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 8 feet), $200,000 City of Hope Mile, 3-year-olds and up

8 Grand Tito – Florida invader must be the goods, trainer got Rafael Bejarano to ride; offers decent value at 5/1 price.

2 Mr. Commons – Despite a nice looking resume, he has really underachieved in his career; this is his right level now.

Long Shot – 12 Rock Me Baby

Race 10 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $16,000, Claiming $12,500, 3-year-olds and up

1 Pressure Time – Claimed two races in a row, must be something to see; with Kent Desormeaux out, Bob Hess uses Rafael Bejarano.

5 Clubhouse Rock – Last race was a disaster, his first try on synthetics; back on dirt, forgiving horseplayers will like the spot.

Long Shot – 8 Memphis

Best Bet – 1 Top Kisser (race 4)
