Analysis:
GOOD TICKLED shows several workouts that match up with ZOLOTO, a Silverton Hill-owned, Darrin Miller-trained juvenile that won first-out under Javier Castellano earlier in the meeting.  A $105,000 yearling purchase, Good Tickled is out of an unraced half-sister to Cape Good Hope, a juvenile debut winner that placed in a pair of stakes races at two.
JOHA took positive betting action for his career debut two weeks ago.  He broke well and tracked the leaders while three wide and a bit green.  He was a bit late to change leads in the stretch and was outfinished late, but should move forward with that effort under his girth.  One must respect these connections.
ALLS IM SAYING finished behind JOHA on April 12, but wasn't disgraced at long odds and may show improved speed with the addition of blinkers.
I'MGONNAKNOCKUOUT must improve following a pair of even-paced efforts and he finished behind Joha in his most recent outing.
PETEIZUM goes out for trainer Jimmy DiVito, who boasts amazing numbers with debut runners.  The sire was a solid sprinter and the female family was precocious.  Don't be surprised if this one shows good speed.
BRAZILIAN COURT worked a quick three furlongs out of the gate on April 20 and attracts Kent Desormeaux.  His half-brother Devoted Wildcat, won the OBS Sprint over a synthetic surface last month with an 81 Beyer.
SUNSET TIME is a filly tackling males, but debuts for Wesley Ward along with uncoupled stablemate, UNDRAFTED.  The latter is a gelding by a sire that is 0-23 with juvenile debut runners.
SKILLTOPAYTHEBILLS was dull in his debut and draws the far outside post.
FITZ IS DANCING was dull in his debut and must break alertly from the rail.
PRIME BLANK shows a three-week gap between his last two published workouts.
SAMURAI ZIP is out of a sprint winner that is related to some quick runners, but only shows one published move in the last month.
