FRIDAY, JULY 31  

GO DIVA GO in Friday's final serves me two ways, Best Bet/Trip Play. She’s been very honest at this level, solid second in her yearly debut, was claimed and then a pair of troubled tries. She has early foot and this rider has a tendency to put her kind on the lead from the start. Just a matter of getting her out of the gate without any mishaps.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 1

I’ve always liked this move; horse coming off two turns with early speed going back to 6 1/2 furlongs. They’re bumped up, especially successful going down the hill at Santa Anita and for years here and at Longacres. St Nicholas Becky in today’s ninth fits the bill in every aspect. Gallyn Mitchell is an added plus as he’ll sit and save as much ground as possible.
