FLYING BLUE was an impressive winner of a maiden at Los Alamitos last month and that form suggests that she will be hard to beat this evening. Reds Sacred Appeal edges out Shanghai Barbie to be the pick of the remainder.

62

Placed once in seven starts. Well beaten at 100-1 behind Scarlet Heat when 10th of 11 on her latest outing at Santa Anita over 1m (good) earlier this month. That performance has to be a concern.

Probable historical data/form

A chance can be taken with MANRESA, who failed to fire last time but she can be given another chance today having gone very well on her debut over C&D in November. If she were to disappoint once again then Lily's Storm and Gotta Be Lucky would be the most likely beneficiaries.

Odysseus and Sky Jumper are both interesting debutants in a moderate race for the grade but the preference is for SILENCED, who has displayed plenty of promise in his last couple of starts.

Golden Melodie historical data/form

IT'S A RIDDLE, who only just failed to get off the mark over C&D last month, won't find many better opportunities to get off the mark than this moderate contest. La Rosa Drive is the clear form threat, while Queen Arya should only improve for her recent debut effort.

LEATHERNECK was an impressive winner on his debut last month and he can take this race on his way to bigger targets. Commander and Govenor Cinch are others who merit respect.
