I DELIVER looks the one to concentrate on in the first of three Quarter Horse races. The latter landed a double at Grants Pass before finishing runner-up at Emerald Downs and has beaten most of these already, including Sweet Dream Demon and Dont Hezitate.

THREE DASHIN BYE improves with every start and found only one too good here earlier in the month when ahead of Volt. Collateral form with the latter gives her the beating of Fierce Hawk, who opened his account with a victory at Crooked River when also beating This Wagons On Fire.

Verdict

MILADY'S SECRET represents Ben Root, who has won with two of only three runners at the meet so far. She may well prove good enough on her racecourse debut given those with experience have yet to threaten, including Red Hot Bubblegum, who was still beaten six lengths when runner-up at Emerald Downs.

ST. SOMEWHERE arrives in fine form having finished runner-up here last time and romping home by nearly eight lengths at Ferndale before that when Goldimax was second. The latter has won either side of that defeat so the form looks rock-solid, with Gotta Be Diet C perhaps best of the rest.

IAMAJETOO won in this grade earlier in the year and was placed at Ferndale on his latest start. He may just edge this debuting for a new trainer and has stronger overall form than Alec's Butte, third here last time. Hello Son is one of the less exposed and could go well.

Verdict

CAPTAIN SHADDOCK won a more valuable claimer than this at Emerald Downs earlier and may well return to form dropping down into this lower grade. He's preferred to recent runner-up Mr. Tenacious, while both Yossi and Semper Gumby are much better than their latest below par efforts suggest.
