DEL MAR Race #9

Friday 11/07 04:30 PM Eastern

Top pick: #8 (HEAT THE ROCKS) (2-1) - Filly has by far the best form of those that have raced. Hollendorfer home bred missed by less than a length last out at Santa Anita and can take this if he transfers the form to this synthetic surface.

2nd pick: #5 (Chexcess) (12-1) - Longshot ran well in her debut at Los Alamitos but tired badly at Santa Anita in her follow up start. Reddam home bred by "in Excess" has early speed and think she'll be in this from gate-to-wire at a big price.

3rd pick: #10 (Canned Heat) - One of five fillies making their debuts, home bred daughter of "Unusual Heat" has been in steady training here since early Sept. and is in a capable first out barn (Vlad Cerin 16%). She draws a nice outside post at this distance and can factor at long odds if ready.

4th pick: #9 (Stipend) (8-1) - Another from the vast Reddam operation, she was never involved following a poor break when debuting Oct. 16 at Santa Anita. Daughter of "Square Eddie" took a bit of betting action that afternoon and probably has more talent to show.

5th pick: #11 (Is This Georgia) (15-1) - Longshot raced both wide and evenly while never involved at santa Anita Oct. 4. She had a difficult outside post that day and it's noted that she ran much better in a pair of starts here during the summer.
