Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #2 (EMBELLISHER) (7-2) - He ships from Turfway Park where he raced evenly following a troubled break going a mile on the all-weather surface facing special weights Dec. 27. His best races have come on the grass and all came against tougher. I like his chances.

2nd pick: #7 (Rags for Britches) (5-1) - Away from action since Sept. 20, he finished third here that day facing $40K claimers. Competitive in four straight on the grass, he's dropping back down in value and leading rider Irad Ortiz Jr. is aboard.

3rd pick: #1 (Cool Hand Coop) (6-1) - A lightly raced 4yo, he hasn't raced since Feb. 21 of last year when he finished a wide and even fourth here for a $35K tag. Training steadily at the Palm Meadows Center, he has early speed, the rail, and trainer Jane Cibelli is having a strong meeting 45-9-5-4. A major threat if ready.
