Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #1 (MAVERICK KITTEN) (2-1) - Ramsey home bred rallied to miss by a 'head' here going 8.5 furlongs for a $50K tag Jan. 30. He moves to the rail after breaking from the 10-Post and leading rider Irad Ortiz Jr stays aboard. Son of 'Kitten's Joy' gets top billing.
2nd pick: #10 (Strong Ending) (3-1) - Dangerous rival raced both wide and evenly here sprinting 5 furlongs Jan. 18. Beaten 5.5 lengths, it's noted the third-place runner broke his maiden on yesterday's card. Colt drops into a claimer stretches out in distance, and Lasix is administered. A win candidate.
3rd pick: #5 (Abrupt) (8-1) - Homebred colt has been idle since showing nothing debuting at this distance on the Belmont dirt Sept. 11. Trainer Bill Mott, 19% off of long layoffs drops him into a claimer (23%) and is adding Lasix (2%). Working steadily for his return, colt breezed a very quick half-mile here Jan 11.
4th pick: #7 (Indirectly) (10-1) - Son of 'Animal Kingdom' rallied into a quick pace to finish second of 12, missing by 2 lengths facing weaker at odds of 33-1 Jan .20. He may grab a share, but he'll need to step it up to handle either of the top two selections.
