Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #11 (SUMMER IN THE CITY) (4-1) - Filly is one of two entered by Todd Pletcher, and the pair race as separate betting interests. A home-bred daughter of 'War Front,' she raced evenly when checking in 5th of nine, missing by just over four lengths when debuting here in a five-furlong sprint facing special weights March 4. Pletcher wins at a 23% rate second time out, and he drops this filly into a claimer, a strong 33% winning angle. I give her a slight edge.

2nd pick: #1 (Our Fantasy) (9-2) - She drops down after being bumped late when missing by almost three lengths here facing $75K claimers March 15. It was a solid effort, and along with the drop to a $50K tag, she has the rail. A win candidate.

3rd pick: #3 (Stormy Derby Day) (20-1) - Longshot has made up ground late in both starts and has worked three times at the Palm Meadows Center for this attempt. The figure earned last out fits with this group, and she'll be a very big price.

4th pick: #10 (Toastnjam) (15-1) - Daughter of 'American Pharoah' drops after missing by four lengths March 15. She was only a length in back of 'Our Fantasy' that afternoon and is another who may run well at a big price.
