Top pick: #2 (THE WHOLE DEAL) (2-1) - He comes off a career best when winning at this level and distance going "Down the Hill" at Santa Anita on April 4th. Speed/stalker has been sharp in both starts since moving to the grass and has a recency edge on several others entered.

2nd pick: #1 (I'm Wide Awake) (6-1) - Price play is well-bred, lightly raced, and comes off a nice looking maiden win at Santa Anita on March 17th. Has the rail, is working steadily, and gelding by "Exchange Rate" has a flexible style.

3rd pick: #3 (Laugh At Life) (3-1) - Speedy sort was an impressive maiden winner on the Santa Anita dirt on April 12th racing for a $20K tag. Claimed that day by John Sadler (34% first off the claim), he immediately switches him to the grass for his first against winners.

4th pick: #4 (One Firm Cat) (4-1) - On the sidelines since March 15th, he's been racing evenly and will b e moving back to the grass (which he clearly prefers). Capable, and he should get a quick pace to rally into.
