DEL MAR Race #2

Wednesday 07/31 02:35 PM Eastern

Top pick: #1 (CRAVIN' THE HEAT) (5-2) - Lightly-raced home-bred by "Unusual Heat" ran evenly here after being "bumped" at the start facing state-bred special weights on July 24th. Race was her first since March 16th and trainer Barry Abrams will drop her into a career soft spot, She has the rail, faces a weak field, and is the horse to beat.

2nd pick: #6 (Classic Candy) (6-1) - She raced wide and checked in a distant third here at this level and distance on July 11th. Runs third back off a two month break and has workied nicely since her comebacker.

3rd pick: #4 (Little Bit Cactus) (3-1) - She's spent the first part of her career at Turf Paradise and went 8-0-3-3 there racing on both turf and dirt. Freshened up since April 26th, she has a new trainer, Jeff Mullons (24% with new arrivals) and he'll switch her from grass to "poly," shorten her up in distance, and adds blinkers.

4th pick: #8 (Jen's Hot) (6-1) - Debuting daughter of "Unusual Heat" has a nice work tab showing and home-bred faces a weak field first out. Filly can factor if she has any talent.
