Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #3 (DISCIPLANARIAN) (3-1) - Improving sort stretches out to a mile following a second-place finish here at this level going 7 furlongs Dec. 30. One-run type moves off the rail and I give him a slight edge.
2nd pick: #5 (Implied Volatility) (5-2) - A lightly raced 4yo, he's dropping back down after tiring here at this trip facing tougher Dec. 20. Competitive in both prior starts at this level and he should be involved from gate-to-wire.
3rd pick: #6 (Dutchmen Forever) (7-2) - Grey gelding missed by a 'nose' here going 7 furlongs Dec. 20 in his first back following a two-month freshening. It produced a career-best figure and he was two lengths in front of 'Disciplanarian' that afternoon. In the mix.
4th pick: #9 (Kid Chocolate) (8-1) - He split 'Dutchmen Forever' and 'Disciplanarian' last out in what was a career-best in nine starts. No-speed type draws well, but will need a fast/and or contested pace for anything more than a minor award.
