Xpressbet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his top plays.

Del Mar Race 1 (5 pm ET)

#4 Rev Rita (3-1)

Showed early speed in her debut and has a good-looking workout at Del Mar since then for her second start. Expect her to be on the lead or battling for the front in a race without much early pressure in the forecast. Win bet.



Del Mar Race 4 (6:30 pm ET)

#6 Formal Order (5-1)

Trainer Keith Desormeaux has a strong history with his young 2-year-olds going longer distances like this first try at a mile for Formal Order. His previous two finishes are better than they look and he should handle the extra ground. Win-place bet.
