SEICHE cost $230,000 as a yearling and is fancied to make a winning debut for Bob Baffert and Mike Smith. Stablemate Midnight Mystery remains a maiden after four starts and could be worth adding to a forecast with the selection. Disco Ball is slowly improving and should find a race soon.

Lemon Drop Shot historical data/form

FATHER O'FLAHERTY did plenty wrong on debut here last time out, but he still finished third and could take some pegging back here with that first experience out of the way. Lemon Drop Shot was second on debut at Pleasanton last month but that form might not quite be as strong. Rousing Slammer can claim bronze.

Jamming Eddy historical data/form

DOC TOMMY ran well enough on reappearance here last time out and should have come on plenty for that. His form last year was solid for John Sadler and this is a nice opening for him to double his career tally. Undeniable Proof and Foothill are also expected to be there at the business end.
