Race Details

Race 2: This is a straight claimer which is going to be on the fast dirt track at the course. It is a five and a half furlong contest which is open to 3 year olds plus. There are 6 declared to run for the contest which sends $18k the way of the winner.

Race Favourite

BUSY PAYNTER is the outright favourite at 13/8 odds* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 17:06 GMT on Thursday, 28th May 2020). She will be looking to return to winning form after taking a 5th on his last outing. But that was in higher allowance optional company and at the start of the year, she scored a double. At this level, she is going to be a big contender.

Tips

Where are the main challenges coming from? 5 year old mare SHEZA FACTOR should be in the mix. She returns from a 76 day break after taking 3rd of 7 at the track. She had won a $13k claimer in early favourite over 6F on the dirt, her third score in 13 efforts on the all-weather. More than capable of showing up.

Following a richer claimer win that this on her last effort, SWIRLING piques a little bit of interest. That score came at 5 and a half furlongs in a field of seven. She is used to battling along against stiffer company than this and should have a chance of getting herself up into the money. Swirling returns from a 110 day break.

Race 4: This is another claimer on the day’s card from Santa Anita. This is a 1m trip for the runners, and it’s open to 3 year olds and above. It will be on the fast dirt with six declared.

Race Favourite

The outright favourite is BOONESBORO BEAUTY who heads the market at 13/8* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 17:06 GMT on Thursday, 28th May 2020). On her last run, the 4 year old took a good second place at the venue and she was easily ahead of Info’s Treasure in that contest. So this course and distance and grade are in her zone and Boonesboro Beauty is likely going to take some stopping.

Tips

BILLY K put in a poor showing on her last effort which was at a much higher grade than this. She wasn’t in the places but before that, she had taken second place in a $20k claimer at the end of January.

In that one, the filly had finished ahead of K P Whirlwind. The potential is there but it’s not often that she strings consistent performances together. Billy K returns from a 111 daybreak.

K P WHIRLWIND took fourth in that contest behind Billy K at the end of January in what was a field of six. Before that, she has scored a win in a maiden to get her first career score after dropping down after being tried in richer races. This could just about be her prime zone. She returns after a 125 day break.

Race 7: This is a 5 and a half furlong contest on the turf at Santa Anita. This is an allowance optional claimer, so a higher graded contest. The winner will take $32k and it’s a small field with just five declared.

Race Favourite

LOFTY is the clear favourite at even money* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 17:06 GMT on Thursday, 28th May 2020). She is a very good horse and the filly was denied a four-time on her last effort where she was beaten into second over course and distance having been 6/5F. Still, she’s a superb performance and wouldn’t be winning out of turn.

Tips

LIGHTHOUSE could end up being the biggest threat to the favourite in this one. The filly returns from a 103 day break. This will be just her fifth race track appearance, breaking her maiden at the second attempt which was back in November.

She wasn’t disgraced in taking a second place of seven in a much bigger Grade 3 contest last time out. She will be a threat.

The other threat in this field to Lofy is BELLA VITA who has produced some very good consistency. She was last seen in a big $94k claimer at the track in the middle of May.

She ran well too, taking the second place of ten in that contest straight after a 70 day break. Like LIghthouse she is looking to score for the first time since breaking her maiden in February.

Race 8: This is a 1m trip to close out the day’s action at the track. It is open to 3 year olds and above and there are 8 declared to run. It will be on the fast dirt and the winner takes $20k.

Race Favourite

Race favourite for this contest is MONGOLIAN HERO at 3/1* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 17:06 GMT on Thursday, 28th May 2020). The colt will be making his first run for his new yard on Friday as well. That could be just the thing to shape him up as he was a little out of sorts in richer company earlier this year. He is highly rated though and one to be feared in this one.

Tips

A really interesting contender in this one is TEJON who produced a stunning debut to win a $20k maiden. It was highly impressive and that was the course at a 6 and a half furling distance. There was plenty to spare so he should be able to handle the trip up in this one from a 6/1 quote* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 17:06 GMT on Thursday, 28th May 2020).

BIG HOOF DYNAMITE is another threat in this kind of company. He has won one of five previous racetrack appearances, placing in two others. The gelding has not been outside of the top three in any of his last four runs, scoring one. The company isn’t not going to concern him and can put himself in the frame.
