All of these have questions to answer but perhaps MI PAJARITO is worth forgiving her latest below-par Del Mar performance because her previous efforts at Santa Anita were decent. Derby Treasure and Here'slookinatya might give her most to think about.

Kochees is interesting on his first appearance for the Jerry Hollendorfer team but EL ASESINO found only one too strong when attempting to supplement a Del Mar success at Santa Anita, and a repeat of either of those performances could be good enough. Treasure Hunter and last-start scorers Heartfullofstars and Monydontspenitself add further spice to a competitive sprint.

Verdict

DOC CURLIN hasn't been seen for the best part of a year but he paid his way in good allowance optional claimers at the major California venues and doesn't need to return at quite that level to claim top honours here. If he is ring-rusty, Ultra Fame, Royal Seeker and Love My Bud are capable of taking advantage.

Verdict

TIZ A MASTER showed up well for a long way on her introduction at Del Mar and only faded close home, eventually finishing fourth. She should see her race out stronger now but this isn't as competitive and she may not even need to in order to break through. Awepollonia might be the one to chase her home, with Miss Fia the pick of the newcomers.

Verdict

Meso, Enthralled, Emrata and Mind For Mischief are interesting debutants and the market will likely prove the best guide as to who is the most forward, but DATA STORM KITTY sets the bar quite high. Jeff Bonde's youngster has hit the crossbar at Santa Anita and Del Mar, and today could well be her day.

Verdict

IMMINENT had Gracie Belle behind her when hitting the crossbar for the second race in succession at Del Mar, and the Kristin Mulhall-trained filly only needs to perform to that level again to get off the mark here. Of the unraced brigade, Peg's Princess makes most appeal.
