Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #10 (ALASKAN) (3-1) - He's stretching out in distance while drooping down in price in his second following a Mike Maker claim. Gelding had a wide trip when beaten almost 5 lengths sprinting for a $32K tag Jan. 2 and is halving down to run for $16K. Leading rider Irad Ortiz Jr is aboard an I give this state bred a slight edge.
2nd pick: #5 (Hero's Return) (5-1) - He rated, made a strong bid, then tired here for twice this tag at this distance Jan. 9. Down in class and with Luis Saez back on the re-ride, this Live Oak homebred is a threat at a square price.
3rd pick: #6 (Garnett) (20-1) - Longshot had some traffic issues last out but did not respond when in the clear turning for home. No-speed type would be helped by a fast/and or contested pace and is capable of factoring at a big price.
4th pick: #8 (Bacano) (6-1) - Blinkers go on colt who has been competitive in 4-of-5 starts on the grass, all at today's mile distance. Stretch runner finished third at this tag Jan. 3 and must be left in the mix.
