Top pick: #8 (DON'T NEEDA A REASON) (2-1) - Filly has finished second in both starts, one each on the Golden Gate "Tapeta" surface and the other on the Plesanton dirt. Freshened up since July 5th, she has a new trainer (Pete Miller)and is the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #1 (City Ride) (4-1) - The field's most experienced maiden, filly has improved noticeably in her last pair and she's working fast and is dropping into a claimer for the first time. Stretch threat.
3rd pick: #4 (Jilly Juice) (9-2) - She raced both wide and evenly when debuting at Los Alamitos facing fellow Cal. bred special weights. Trainer Walt Solis has worked her three times since and drops her into a claimer for her second start.
4th pick: #2 (Easter Fever) (5-1) - One of three fillies making their debuts, she's bred for early success and trainer Bob Hess Jr. is having a strong meet. Her works are solid and daughter of "Stormin Fever" must be left in the mix.
