Top pick: #4 (GIRLY GHOST) (10-1) - Grey filly ships in from Golden Gate Fields where she tired badly there on the Tapeta surface on Nov 1st racing at this tag & trip. It was her first since debuting in late January at Santa Anita. Home bred has taken betting action in both starts and is working fast locally off a private trainer change to Jose Silva. She has a shot at long odds.

2nd pick: #8 (Street Candy) (2-1) - Lightly raced and well bred, she's not broken cleanly in either start but has shown some talent once in stride. Capable barn (Ardel Sayler) has been "ice cold" at this meet but had won 71 of 293 (24%) in 2014 before this long meet opened.

3rd pick: #6 (Lady Swan) (5-2) - Grey mare moves up a bit in price and cuts back a furlong for this attempt. Cal-bred finished a close up 3rd here last out and stalker must be left in the mix.

4th pick: #2 (Tough Trinket) (9-5) - No speed type finished an even 3rd facing a bit tougher here on Dec 3. It was a good effort and was her first start since late April. An obvious threat, but she holds no real edge and will be over-bet.
