Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #11 (SHOOTIN THE BREEZE) (6-1) - He raced close up to a quick pace before leveling off late to finish 4th of 12, missing by four lengths here going a mile on March 21 in a first-level allowance. Home-bred by 'Hard Spun' was racing off just under a 5.5-month layoff, and I give him a small edge in what I believe to be a three-horse win mix.

2nd pick: #9 (Honey Won't) (5-1) - Speed/stalker vied for the lead before weakening to lose by just over five lengths April 11. He was 3.5 lengths behind today's rival 'Battle of 'Blenheim' that afternoon and has a solid shot here at a square price.

3rd pick: #6 (Battle of Blenheim) (2-1) - The morning line and probable favorite, he's 3-2-1-0 here since mid-December and enters this off a 2nd place finish April 11 when 3.5 lengths in front of 'Honey Won't.' Speed/stalker is an obvious win candidate at a short price with Irad Ortiz, Jr. aboard.
