GULFSTREAM PARK Race #3

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #3 (SIR CHUBBY) (7-2) - He's racing third back following almost a year's layoff and has finished 3rd in his previous pair, both at this level. Stalker has Irad Ortiz, Jr. aboard, and I give this 4yo gelding by 'Tiznow' a slim edge in a contest where you should box your wagers.
2nd pick: #7 (Budget Buster) (5-2) - The probable favorite, he's finished 2nd in three of his last six starts. The latest came here April 12 when he was in front of 'Sir Chubby' on the wire, and it was his first-ever at today's $32,000 price tag. A strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #1 (Joe Benjamin) (9-2) - 'Joe' has been competitive in three straight on the grass since coming off a 9.5-month layoff Feb. 8. He is moving up in class for this attempt, but has good positional speed and breaks from the rail. In the mix.
4th pick: #6 (Fantastry) (8-1) - He's switching from dirt to turf, is in a claimer for the first time, and is racing second back off a six-month layoff. His lone previous grass attempt was by far his best in four career outings, and he's capable of factoring at a square price.
