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

Del Mar Race 1 (5:00 pm ET)

#4 Lil Town Sis (8-1 ML)

Trainer Phil D'Amato's 4 dirt route entries last week netted 2 wins and 1 second-place finish, including a win and second with horses stretching out from sprint races like Lil Town Sis. Should be near the front throughout. Win-place bet.


Del Mar Race 8 (8:30 pm ET)

#4 Riding With Dino (6-1 ML)

Third-place finish August 1 significant because his trainer Bob Hess Jr. was mired in a terrible 0-29 slump at that time. Now, Hess runners are running much better (5 wins last 14 starts) and any improvement puts this one in the winner's circle. Win bet.
