Top pick: #6 (THE GATEKEEPER) (3-1) - Stalker races first off a Sadler claim (a 27% winning angle). Lightly-raced gelding finished second at this tag the day he was claimed and is working nicely since. The horse to beat.

2nd pick: #1 (Hustlin Nu) (4-1) - Away since his debut back in late Oct of 2011, gelding finished a solid third that day on the Santa Anita dirt against a strong field of special weights. He has a new trainer (Mike Puype 27% with new arrivals) and 4-year-old is working nicely. Big threat if ready.

3rd pick: #8 (Grand Gambler) (6-1) - Well-backed in his debut, 3-year-old showed good early speed and held until tiring in the final furlong. Gelding has a big bullet 3-furlong work on Jun. 16 that suggests he'll be much tougher in this contest.

4th pick: #4 (Dramatic Allan) (7-2) - He has good early speed and has finished fourth in his last pair and wasn't beaten much in either. Draws a much better post today and should be involved from start-to-finish.

5th pick: #10 (Somewhere With You) (6-1) - He finished a non-threatening third here at this tag on May 30th in his first since Oct. 18. In a capable barn (Vann Belvoir), and a stretch threat.
