Check out my Race 7 analysis for 3-9-24 below.  

SA 7 (G3 San Simeon, 6.5T hillside)
Primary – #7 LANE WAY, #8 Air Force Red
Secondary – #6 Ottoman Prince, #4 Dancing Buck

Wagers: #7 to win, Exacta box 7-8, Trifecta 7-8/4-6-7-8/4-6-7-8

Comments: #7 Lane Way (3-1) is a hillside specialist making his first start since finishing third in the Stormy Liberal at 5T, and that abbreviated distance was too sharp for him. He won the Eddie D (G2) at this course/distance last September, and finished 1-2 in all five local starts at 6.5T. #8 Air Force Red (4-1) has not been seen since finishing 12th of 14 in the G1 Jaipur (June 2023). The early-pressing type is 4-for-6 with a runner-up finish at this distance. #6 Ottoman Prince (8-1) makes his stateside bow for D’Amato. He went 3-for-6 in GB and earned an improved class rating in a 2 1/4 length victory over a next-out winner at 8.5T last October. He shows eight local works for this and Prat is a profitable 7-for-18 with this outfit recently. #4 Dancing Buck (6-1) moved to the Rick Dutrow barn and battled with Forbidden Kingdom from post 12 and settled for the place in the Joe Hernandez (G2) at this course and distance Dec. 30. Maldonado knows him now and he should be all over the pace.
