GULFSTREAM PARK Race #1

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #7 (DINNER AT FIVE) (3-1) - This filly has been idle since late October and is dropping down in price while shortening up in distance. Working steadily, she has the best figures of those that have run, meets a weak field, and she can break her maiden here if ready off the 4.5-month layoff.
2nd pick: #5 (Royal Jewel) (7-2) - She's one of two entered by trainer Fernando Abreu, and the pair race uncoupled. The state-bred pressed the pace and held to finish 3rd here at this tag and trip March 1 and is a contender in this spot
3rd pick: #9 (Above Par) (9-2) - Originally with Todd Pletcher, she was claimed out of her debut here by Tony Sano for $32,000 Jan. 4. In her first for the new barn Feb. 16, she tired badly for a $65K tag going a mile. Under the claimed price and sprinting on the grass, this daughter of 'Street Boss' must be left in the mix.
4th pick: #3 (Felony Melanie) (10-1) - She had a wide trip when checking in 3rd here facing weaker at this trip Feb. 27. It was her first since Dec. 6, and she moves from the 12-post the 3-slot for this attempt. She can factor despite moving up in price.
