GULFSTREAM PARK Race #5

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #7 (VALDOLOBO) (7-2) - Lightly raced Irish import has been freshened up since winning here facing weaker Jan. 9. Sharp in all three attempts since being imported, he's training steadily at the Palm Meadows Center for his return. He gets a slight edge despite moving up in class.
2nd pick: #6 (Willing to Speed) (5-2) - Colt has finished 3rd in all three starts at this meet and has lost by no more than 1.5 lengths in each. The level and distance are fine for him, and he's an obvious win candidate.
3rd pick: #3 (Tricky Magician) (3-1) - He has better early speed than both 'Valdolobo' and 'Willing to Speed' and is dropping a bit following a god effort when facing tougher March 8. Canadian-bred should be involved every step.
4th pick: #5 (Carbon Data) (6-1) - This once much classier runner hasn't seen action since early August of 2018. Training steadily at Palm Meadows, he could factor if ready, but almost 20 months on the sidelines is an eternity for a horse to be sharp off of.
