Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #5 (WONDER IN) (2-1) - This lightly raced state bred moves back to the grass after checking in 4th of six, beaten 4.5 lengths here in a dirt sprint facing tougher Dec. 15. He finished a close up 2nd Oct. 3 at Laurel in a first-level allowance and is dropping into a 'straight' claimer for the first time.
2nd pick: #4 (Cat Lady Steph) (5-1) - On the sidelines since Oct. 26, this lightly raced New York bred has good early speed and has been competitive in two of three sprinting on the Belmont turf. She has a fine series of works showing, has Lasix added, and is dropping in class. The field's only female, this 4yo is a threat if ready.
3rd pick: #3 (By the Sey Shore) (7-2) - Even paced type tired going 6.5 furlongs on the local dirt for a $25K tag Dec. 29. In his only prior grass attempt, he finished 3rd in an allowance contest going six furlongs at Laurel Oct. 11.
4th pick: #6 (Damiano) (10-1) - Colt raced evenly at this level and distance Nov. 22 in his first start in two months and first off a Bob Hess, Jr. claim. He draws outside of the pace types here and is capable of being a serious late threat at a big price with his best.
