FOURTH RACE: Psychedelicat (3-1)
Drops from a MSW to a maiden claimer. Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer is 26% when making that move. Has been working well.

SIXTH RACE: #7 Lucky Soul (6-1)
This colt plus Saltini and Cascade Rock all come out of a key Del Mar race that has produced two next out winners from three starters (Play a exacta box with these three). Lucky Soul is a closer. Been working well and Tyler Baze takes over.

EIGHTH RACE: #9 Bee Sweet (6-1)
Jockey Flavien Prat takes over for apprentice Evin Roman going two turns on the grass. This filly shipped back from Golden Gate to Del Mar and showed an improved effort for trainer Neil Drysdale, who is 29% with Prat in 21 races at Santa Anita. Outside post not great, but thinking Prat will head to the rail and mount a charge from there. Also Prat usually rides for Richard Mandella and rides this one instead.

Good luck.
