Top pick: #1 (Cody's Wish) (7-5) - Cody's Wish has great speed and has the first post for this 1-mile jaunt. Cody's Wish has won five straight races, including the last three at Grade 1. He took the Churchill Downs Stakes last month with his best speed figure at 7 furlongs and prior to that won the Breeder's Cup Dirt Mile making up a lot of ground late. He also has experience on this track, winning the 1-mile 2022 Westchester at Belmont Park.

2nd pick: #7 (Repo Rocks ) (4-1) - This 5-year-old gelding has won five of its last six races, including 2-for-2 at 1-mile. The only loss was a second-place finish in the 2023 Carter Handicapp, the lone Grade 1 Stakes race. The last time out, Repo Rocks won the one-turn mile Westchester with a powerful 5 1/4-length score. That was at Belmont Park, where the sweeping turns benefit this horse.

3rd pick: #6 (Zandon) (5-1) - Chad Brown's 4-year-old colt won the Grade 1 Blue Grass Stakes just over a year ago. But since then, Zandon hasn't won, finishing second three times, third twice, and fourth once. Zandon has ran shorter races the last two times out, both at 1-mile, and finished second at the Grade 3 Westchester and fourth in the Grade 1 Cigar Mile despite being the favorite.
