TIZANILLUSION makes her California debut in a N1X turf sprint in which she should get a good trip right behind the speed. Runner-up three straight at this level on the East Coast, this is her first start for local trainer John Sadler. Good works, good figures, good trip expected. VAI was overmatched in a stakes race that was her first start of the year. She finished far back, as expected. But she worked well since, and her 2yo form puts her in the hunt. Turf is a question, however. PAINTING CORNERS is the speed of the field. She set/pressed a strong pace last out and finished third on the hill at Santa Anita. The shorter distance of this fivefurlong race may benefit. Also-eligible LATE ‘N LEFT might be ranked too low by this handicapper. She finished second in a stakes race last out at Santa Anita.
