Justin Phillip sitting on ready in Palos Verdes

Saturday's 5th race (2:33pm PT) from Santa Anita Park is the Grade II Palos Verdes for 4-year-olds and up dashing six furlongs on the main track. 

#7 Justin Phillip (7-2) could sit the right outside stalk and pounce trip under Bejarano. He was further back than usual in a rallying 5th of 14 BC Sprint finish over a speed friendly oval when last seen here Nov 3. Asmussen horses don't usually work fast but this typically average worker signaled his readiness for this with a sizzling local 6f bullet in 1:11.20 on Jan 7.  

#2 Drill (4-1) broke slow and rallied to finish 4th in his much needed G1 Malibu return on opening day. He shows back-to-back local bullets for this and should revert to stalking tactics with a clean beginning. He won the G2 San Vicente at 7f here last February and might want more ground.

#6 Private Zone (5-2) is an obvious speed threat but could get hounded by another sharp speedster, #5 Comma to the Top (3-1). My third choice is 0-for-6 in the U.S. but has been knocking on the door vs. this kind and should make his presence felt early and often under regular pilot Pedroza. 

I have alaways been fond of #1 Apriority (6-1). He is firing bullets for new trainer Baffert but might need one in his first start in more than six months.

The Plays:

$16 to win #7

$6 Exacta Box 2-7 ($12)

$4 Exacta 2-7/6 ($8)

$2 Exacta 2-7/1 ($4)

GL, rafi. I like too many in here. So, trying to overcome personal old fav bias, Justin Phillip, Comma To The Top, Private Zone, Sahara Sky. (But I really like Apriority.)

I like Private Zone here. He raced a good second in the Malibu, and has three straight places. He's got speed, and this is a speed favoring track. He's got the class, so I think Private Zone can win here. I have him $8 W, $12 PS.
