Verdict

Aunt Lubie has been sent off a short price in both starts to date and her latest third over seven furlongs at Santa Anita brings her into the reckoning. Convince is improving with experience and is respected but CONFIDENTIALLY caught the eye finishing third over this trip on debut at Santa Anita and any normal amount of improvement could make her difficult to beat.

Verdict

STOP THE VIOLENCE appeared to find the trip stretching his stamina when fourth over seven furlongs here in June and his earlier success over six furlongs at Los Alamitos was hugely impressive. The greater emphasis on speed here will suit and he can prove too strong for Isee It In Hiseyes and Saratoga Morning.

However, CAPTAIN N. BARRON has reached the frame on his last three outings and a reproduction of his latest second could suffice.

Ask The Customer broke slow on debut over five furlongs at Los Alamitos but ran on nicely to finish runner-up and rates the biggest danger ahead of Angel Alessandra.

Watch Me Burn and Bea's Boy both looked to have more to come when successful last time and add further intrigue to a warm looking event.

Verdict

Portal Creek is back in calmer waters after finishing third in a stronger event over track and trip last month while Disco Tale enters calculations after finishing runner-up last time. However, STAYTHIRSTYMYAMIGO displayed plenty of early pace before weakening into fourth on debut over five furlongs here and any normal amount of improvement could see her difficult to beat.
