DEL MAR, Calif. &ndash; In the days following Monster Bea&rsquo;s upset win in the Oceanside Stakes at Del Mar on July 15, trainer Peter Miller took a guarded approach regarding the rest of the gelding&rsquo;s summer season.\r\nThe outlook had changed by the end of July. Monster Bea rebounded well enough from the Oceanside to plan for a start in Saturday&rsquo;s $200,000 La Jolla Handicap for 3-year-olds at 1&nbsp;1/16 miles on turf. The goal is to win the Grade 3 La Jolla and progress to the $250,000 Del Mar Derby on Sept. 4.\r\nNo horse has swept the three-race series since Ladies Din in 1998.\r\n&ldquo;That&rsquo;s the objective right now &ndash; to try and run in all three,&rdquo; he said.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMonster Bea is part of a field of nine in the La Jolla. The race drew two other stakes winners &ndash; Dressed in Hermes and Mr. Roary &ndash; and five stakes-placed runners.\r\nLa Jolla, Race 9\r\nKEY CONTENDERS\r\nMonster Bea, by Hat Trick\r\nLast 3 Beyers: 93-84-82\r\n◗ Monster Bea races for Gary Barber and joined Miller&rsquo;s stable shortly before the Oceanside. In the one-mile race, Monster Bea closed from seventh to win by 2 1/4 lengths over Moonlight Drive, another contender in the La Jolla.\r\n◗ Miller said running in the La Jolla has greater appeal than waiting for the Del Mar Derby.\r\n&ldquo;He&rsquo;s got a good energy level, and his breezes seem super on the grass,&rdquo; Miller said.\r\n◗ Monster Bea should get a favorable trip with runners such as Mr. Roary and Imperious One likely to contribute to a quick pace.\r\nLiam the Charmer, by Smart Strike\r\nLast 3 Beyers: 88-84-83\r\n◗ The La Jolla will be the graded-stakes debut for Liam the Charmer, who was a fast-closing third behind Mr. Roary in the Rainbow Stakes at 1 1/8 miles on turf at Santa Anita on June 18. Liam the Charmer was beaten a half-length.\r\n&ldquo;I thought he was the best horse in the Rainbow,&rdquo; trainer Michael McCarthy said. &ldquo;He was probably compromised by being wide on both turns.&rdquo;\r\nMoonlight Drive, by Red Rocks\r\n\r\nLast 2 Beyers: 88-86\r\n◗ Moonlight Drive&rsquo;s second-place finish in the Oceanside was his first race since a win in an optional claimer at Santa Anita last February, his American debut.\r\n&ldquo;I think he needed the race really bad,&rdquo; trainer Bob Baffert said.\r\n◗ Leading rider Flavien Prat rides Moonlight Drive for the first time, replacing Rafael Bejarano, who is riding in West Virginia on Saturday.\r\nEbadan, by Holy Roman Emperor\r\nLast 3 Beyers: 75-93-88\r\n◗ Ebadan was 10th in the Oceanside after a troubled trip. His preceding races &ndash; a win and a third in optional claimers at Santa Anita in May and June &ndash; leave the gelding with a chance for an upset.
