6 Nothin But a Dream(L) 118 Castro 7-x-x Hennig 8-1

1a Marvelous Margaret(L) 118 Velasquez 2-1-7 Galluscio 8-5

Jungle Juice ships in and owns numbers that are a solid fit with the locals at this level. Anecdote is fleet-footed and rested; very dangerous. Marvelous Margaret makes first start since claimed by Dominic Galluscio; worth long look.

5 Magnificent Mia(L) 118 Castro 3-6-1 Englehart 6-1

6 Bobby Zapper(L) 123 Velasquez 1-5-2 Rodriguez 4-1

Royal Sighting drops and gets favorable cutback to 6 furlongs; call based on price potential. Sacred Success will prove a very tough customer on a soft lead. Clear Pasaj and Cat Ferrard both own speed and could set the table for top selection.

1 Guyana Princess(L) 111 Rodriguez 4-3-4 Lalman 6-1

8 Newbie(L) 118 Alvarado 8-9-7 Kimmel 8-1

Read the Research switches to Dominguez and projects as the speed of the speed. Great Gracie Dane gets class relief and will be in the garden spot if 'Research' gets hooked on the lead. Jolienne is quick from gate and could prove troublesome for top selection.

1 Mile. 4&up. Allowance Optional Claiming. Purse: $69,000.

1 Keep Me Informed(L) 118 Alvarado 3-3-3 Mott 5-2

2 Metaurus(L) 118 Camacho, Jr 7-3-3 Sciacca 20-1

5 Big Business(L) 118 Velasquez 2-1-2 Jacobson 8-5

6 Jaguar Paw(L) 118 Dominguez 6-8-2 Brown 3-1

Charlie's Quest notched three tight works since being dq'd from top spot last month at Prx; rates close call. Big Business logs fast figs with machine-like consistency; could easily take this. Keep Me Informed is right in the thick of this on 'A' game. Jaguar Paw is firing bullets for first start since September; don't ignore.

6 Furlongs. 4&up. Fillies and Mares. Maiden Claiming $12,500. Purse: $20,000.

1 La Gazelle(L) 121 Jimenez 4-7-12 Lotruglio 30-1

2 Chubbalita's Joy(L) 121 Pezua 7-5-3 Quiles 20-1

3 Believe in Betty(L) 121 Velasquez 7-7-7 Galluscio 8-1

4 Winds of Change(L) 121 Ortiz, Jr 5-10-8 Rodriguez 8-5

5 Oh Yes She Did(L) 121 Dominguez 5-3-x Canani 2-1

6 Fall Into Faith(L) 121 Fragoso 3-2-5 Araya 5-1

7 One Or the Other(L) 116 Ortiz 6-12-4 Reynolds 10-1

8 Wildichi(L) 114 Coa 5-4-5 Odintz 12-1

9 Caninann(L) 121 Camacho, Jr 7-4-7 D'Aloia 30-1

Fall Into Faith turns back to a sprint and should pack amplified kick in cheap nightcap. Believe in Betty was speed sharpened in last and should prove tighter in second start since two-month absence. Wildichi was a change-of-pace fifth on New Year's Eve; worth long look at long price. Winds of Change makes first start for Rudy Rodriguez; very dangerous. Oh Yes She Did picks up Dominguez for local debut; must consider.
