DEL MAR Race #5
Friday 08/08 06:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #9 (HERE'S BELLA) (6-1) - Filly was bet down to 2-1 when debuting at Los Alamitos on July 3rd. She held to finish third after being involved in a spirited pace-duel and has been working fast for this attempt. Daughter of "Harlan's Holiday" draws a nice outside post and gets a slight edge.
2nd pick: #8 (Bench Ruling) (5-2) - The morning line favorite, she rallied from far back to finish fourth following a very slow start when debuting at Golden Gate Fields June 15th. Working fast locally for this assignment and a win candidate with an alert getaway.
3rd pick: #2 (Fashioned Lady) (7-2) - Useful debut at Santa Anita May 31st saw her rally to check in third of eight, beaten almost 6-lengths racing at this level going 5.5-furlongs. In a patient barn (Tom Proctor 21% 2nd time out), and home bred is working fast locally.
4th pick: #6 (Denotation) (12-1) - Longshot has been bet in two of three starts and has been competitive in two of three on the Santa Anita dirt. Blinkers go on and she may grab a share at a big price.
