Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #5 (RICKI TICKI TAFFI) (2-1) - He's clearly the main speed in this field and enters off a pace-setting second-place finish going 6 furlongs here in the Limehouse Stakes Jan. 4. Trainer Saffie Joseph Jr is having an incredible meet 83-24-14-8 (29%) and he stretches runner out a furlong for this attempt. He'll be tough to catch in this spot.

2nd pick: #1 (Genghis) (7-2) - Florida bred tired here facing tougher traveling 8.5 furlongs Jan 11. He had rallied to check-in second in a 7-furlong stakes in his prior attempt and is a late threat today.

3rd pick: #4 (Deckology) (9-2) - Competitive in all four starts, he's moving up in class after breaking his maiden here going 5 furlongs for a $40K tag in an 'off the turf' contest Jan. 24. Stalker is getting better and Javier Castellano is aboard for the first time.

4th pick: #7 (With Verve) (6-1) - No-speed type was a non-factor at this level going 6 furlongs Jan. 18. He's worked fast since and may grab a share with a late rally if the pace is fast and/or contested.
