Top pick: #8 (Up to the Mark) (8-5) - Switching from dirt to turf has been a difference-maker for this horse. Up to the Mark has won three of four races on turf along with a third-place finish in the Grade 1 Maker's Mile. The last time out, Up to the Mark won the Turf Classic Stakes at 1 1/8 miles with a powerful rally entering the stretch.

2nd pick: #4 (Ottoman Fleet) (5-2) - Over the last nine months, this 4-year-old gelding has finished first, second, or third in eight races, all on turf. Most of those were at 1 1/8-miles and this is its first Grade 1 stakes race. In the two races at this distance, Ottoman Fleet won the James Seymour Stakes and finished third at the Grade 3 Dubai Millennium Stakes in February.

3rd pick: #3 (Warren Point) (3-1) - In three races on turf, this horse has yet to win. The last time the 4-year-old gelding ran at this 1 1/4-mile distance, Warren Point finished third behind Marching Army and Ottoman Fleet, the latter who is also in this race. And he finished fifth the last time out in the Grade 1 Man O' War Stakes at 9-5.
