While the last three winners (Tap it Light, Stream Cat, and Niagara Causeway) achieved little of consequence, a lightly raced gelding has the tools to buck the trend this year.\r\nHonour the Deputy, 3 for 6, is the horse to beat in a field that includes graded stakes winners Soul Candy and Rendezvous, stakes-placed Spurrier, front-runner Arcordoro, and Worth Repeating.\r\nHonour the Deputy won three of four at Laurel before shipping to trainer Jerry Hollendorfer in California. He finished nowhere in the Grade 2 Strub and then improved second start back with a closing third behind Misremembered in the Santana Mile.\r\nThe 1 1/2-mile distance is the question for Honour the Deputy.\r\n&ldquo;It&rsquo;s an unknown if he can get the distance,&rdquo; Hollendorfer said. &ldquo;But the way he ran last time, the way he finished, we think he can.&rdquo;\r\nCorey Nakatani rides Honour the Deputy. While Hollendorfer is focused on the present, it will be interesting to see how his campaign unfolds in summer.\r\n&ldquo;We&rsquo;ll try to look for a race he can win; obviously, there will be races at Hollywood Park,&rdquo; he said.\r\nWell, maybe. The next main-track marathon in Southern California is not scheduled until Del Mar.\r\nSoul Candy will be well-supported Sunday, after a closing fourth in the Santa Anita Handicap.\r\n&ldquo;He seems to handle grass or dirt equally well, and the distance should be no problem for him,&rdquo; trainer Paddy Gallagher said.\r\nSoul Candy won the $150,000 California Cup Classic in October and previously won a 1 3/8-mile turf allowance. Joe Talamo will ride 4-for-13 Soul Candy.\r\nSpurrier finished nowhere in the Big Cap, but three previous in-the-money efforts in graded stakes make him a contender under Martin Garcia.\r\nArcodoro will set the pace.\r\n&ldquo;When he gets on the front end with his long stride, he can just continue that one pace,&rdquo; trainer Eric Guillot said.\r\nEdwin Maldonado will ration Arcodoro&rsquo;s speed.\r\nCayambe ineligible, will scratch\r\nStakes winner Cayambe would have been a standout Saturday in race 6, the $40,000 March Madness Handicap. The mile turf race is a starter allowance restricted to horses that started for a claiming price of $32,000 or less since March 1, 2010.\r\nCayambe, however, is not eligible and will scratch. He seemingly was eligible due to his participation in a $25,000 claiming race April 18, 2010. However, Cayambe was not eligible to be claimed from that race. He was returning from a layoff of more than six months at the same level at which he previously ran, and his connections entered him in the comeback race &ldquo;not to be claimed.&rdquo; Therefore, he is not eligible for the starter allowance condition.\r\nGolden Gate shipper Our Natique, California Solider, and Asperity are the principals in a field that will number no more than five starters.
