Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #1 (ROMAN EMPIRE) (7-5) - Colt rallied from far back to finish third when debuting here at this level and distance on the grass Feb. 13. Trainer Todd Pletcher, 25 of 104 (24%) second time out in 2019-20, switches him to the dirt (28%) and brings him back on a 15-day turnaround.
2nd pick: #2 (Shaw) (5-1) - He rallied to finish fourth of 8, missing by just under 3 lengths debuting here going 6 furlongs at this condition Jan. 24. From a capable barn (Carlo Vaccarezza), he's worked him three times since and is stretching him out to a mile.
3rd pick: #6 (Freedom Force) (5-2) - A $600,000 son of 'American Phatoah', he debuts off of a solid series of works at the Palm Meadows Center. Good barn (Rodolphe Brisset) has him set for his first attempt and this race drew very weak for the level. A win candidate.
