#4 NOMIZAR (9-2) might be the value play for Robertino Diodoro. She won a pair of six furlong races at Del Mar last year, and looked good beating starter allowance foes at Santa Anita on Jan. 24. She ran down entry level foes at Oaklawn Park on March 21, and should get pace to chase in this spot. 

#1 True Castle (3-1) exits a game local victory at seven panels from the outside post, and that was her first start after the Diodoro claim. The sharp early-pressing filly likes this distance. 

#3 Final Form (8-5) is a logical contender at low odds. She captured five of her last seven starts and should make her presence felt throughout. She exits a romping local win at 5.5 furlongs, and the clear runner-up finisher was a next-out winner. 

#8 Elusive Rose (7-2) earned a strong number in a romping allowance victory in New Mexico on March 6. The versatile filly drew outside the other speed.
