Top pick: #5 (BETTY BING BING) (7-2) - Lightly raced, she's been bet in both starts facing tougher and has some changes for today's attempt. Filly drops into a claimer, races on real dirt, runs second off a four month layoff, and is making back-to-back starts for the first time.

2nd pick: #4 (Glance's Rule) (6-1) - Daughter of "Tribal Rule" chased a fast pace and held to finish 4th of 9, beaten 4 1/2 lengths racing at this tag at Hollywood Park when debuting on Nov. 28. Trainer Bob Diodoro has worked her three times since and she's a win candidate.

3rd pick: #11 (Glorious Rebecca) (5-1) - She's been competitive in both starts and is racing off almost a 100 day vacation. Working well, drops back down, and trainer Eric Kruljac will add blinkers.

4th pick: #12 (Papa's Dancing) (5-1) - No-speed type ran evenly in her debut, then had no chance after a slow start in her latest. Working fine and trainer Brian Koriner drops her into a claimer for the first time.

5th pick: #1 (Mudge) (12-1) - She finished second when debuting here on Oct. 3, and has raced evenly in her last pair at Hollywood Park. Has the rail and is working fine locally.
