Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #8 (LANSE MITAN) (7-2) - He's moving to the grass and up in price after finishing second here going 6 furlongs on the dirt for a $32,000 claiming tag Feb. 7. It was his second back following a 5-month layoff, a career-best, and it came with blinkers on. He gets a slim edge.
2nd pick: #7 (Sea Trident) (4-1) - Son of 'Mizzen Mast' tired after chasing a fast pace debuting here facing tougher in a dirt sprint Jan. 25. Trainer Jorge Navarro drops him into a claimer, switches him to the grass, and Javier Castellano stays aboard. Bred for turf success, he's a strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #1 (Givemetwenty) (9-2) - He chased the pace before weakening when debuting here in a dirt sprint facing tougher June 9. On the sidelines since Ralph Nicks moves him to the grass, drops him down, and this homebred worked a very fast half-mile Feb. 17. In the mix.
4th pick: #6 (Living Vicariously) (10-1) - Colt finished a troubled third here at this tag & trip on the grass Dec. 19, then tired badly facing tougher on the dirt Feb. 1. Back on the turf and down in class, he's capable of getting a share at a big price.
