Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #3 (EIGHT AIN'T ENOUGH) (2-1) - He's rallied from close range to finish second at this distance in both starts at the meet. He did so on the grass for a $20K tag Jan. 12 with his latest coming at today's $16K tag in an 'off the turf' contest Jan 23. He gets a slight edge.

2nd pick: #2 (Mystery Guest) (7-2) - Lightly raced 4yo tired to finish 7th of 9, beaten 7.5 lengths here at this distance facing just a bit tougher Dec. 13. Gelding has some tactical speed, a good post, and he's from a high percentage barn (Jay Servis). In the mix.

3rd pick: #9 (Joe Benjamin) (8-1) - Home bred by 'Hard Spun' tired while wide when debuting against tougher going 9 furlongs on the Keeneland grass April 26. Unraced since, he's training steadily, takes a big drop, and has blinkers on.

4th pick: #12 (Friendly Fella) (6-1) - Stretch out sprinter has good early speed but will need to be sent hard at the break from his marooned post. 4yo runs with blinkers off and may do well if able to avoid a wide trip and any early pace pressure.
