Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #5 (DRACARY'S FIRE) (7-2) - Colt was well backed when debuting here going 6 furlongs for a $25K tag Nov. 29 while checking in a wide and even third that afternoon. Claimed that afternoon by Saffie Joseph Jr, he's won with 28 of 74 (39%) following that transaction since Jan. 1 of 2019. Colt is stretching out in distance (28%) and has leading rider Irad Ortiz Jr aboard.
2nd pick: #3 (Romario) (5-2) - On the sidelines for the past two months, colt finished third sprinting for a $50K tag when debuting Oct. 25 at Keeneland. Claimed that day by Jorge Navarro, he ran evenly following a slow start facing tougher in his follow up at Churchill Downs Nov. 16. Barn has him working fast at Palm Meadows and this son of 'Tapizar' is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #4 (Causalistic) (4-1) - The fields most experienced maiden, he's been competitive a number of times facing tougher and is dropping into a claimer for the first time. He's finished second in two of three on the local dirt and must be left in the mix.
