SPOT PLAYS AND LIVE LONGSHOTS

Del Mar Race 5, (7:10 ET)

WILKINSON (#2, 8-1) The all-weather is the question, but the price will be right to find out. I have him getting the perfect inside tracking trip behind a fast pace. Favorites here have spotty form. - Marcus Hersh

Del Mar Race 6, (7:40 ET)

MY GAL CANDY (#5, 12-1) Away more than a year, but think she's not fit for JHoll off all those NoCal stamina drills? In line for good trip stalking hot pace that could knock out a few shorter prices. - Marcus Hersh

Del Mar Race 11, (10:10 ET)

SIDEBAR (#9, 6-1) didn't do much in her maiden-claiming debut here Aug. 15 (5th, beaten 10 lengths) but it's noteworthy a sharp guy like Spawr moves her UP in class off a monster 5f bullet work here Aug. 25 (:58.40). Maybe that work is a sign the light has gone on for this gal. - Michael Hammersly

Del Mar Race 11, (10:10 ET)

TAPPINGINTHERAIN (#4, 9-2) Stretchout off that terrific just-miss at HollyPark proved a tad disappointing for a nicely bred Tapit filly, who now returns to sprinting and has the one race over the Dmr synth to her credit. Comes well drawn for a nice wait-and-see trip under Martin, who we'll assume is getting psyched for the coming Pomona meet; turn-back should provide some needed kick. Barn always seems underrated on this circuit. – Marty McGee

VULNERABLE FAVORITE

Del Mar Race 7, (8:10 ET)

STOLE A KISS (#10, 5-2) had ground saving trip throughout in race won by wire to wire winner; didn't hurt to be on the rail that day and this one will be overbet. - Chuck Kuehhas
