GULFSTREAM PARK Race #2

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #7 (BIBIANA) (4-1) - Filly has been idle since Dec. 22 when she rallied to finish a distant fourth when facing tougher. Her chances were severely compromised after she was bumped heavily at the break and forced to race wide turning for home. Down in class for trainer Saffie Joseph Jr., I like her chances.
2nd pick: #6 (Fancified) (5-2) - The morning line and probable favorite, she rallied to finish a distant second here at this level going 6.5 furlongs Feb. 5. It was her first in a claimer, she's worked since, and is an obvious win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (Tara) (3-1) - She raced both wide and evenly while never involved sprinting on the grass facing tougher Jan. 3 in her first race in two months. Competitive twice last year sprinting on the dirt, she's back on it and is dropping into a claimer for the first time.
4th pick: #8 (Panarea) (5-1) - Nicely bred filly has been on the sidelines since Oct. 13 when she raced evenly at this level and distance in her second attempt. In a claimer for this assignment, she finished 3rd, 3.5 lengths behind 'Bbiana' when debuting in late Sept.
