Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #7 (BIG SPENDER) (7-2) - He's finished 2nd in three dirt sprints here, and all came for a $30-35K price tag. The latest on March 18 was his second back following almost a five-month layoff, and this speed/stalker drops down to run at a new low in value ($16,000). He gets top billing.

2nd pick: #5 (Flawless Moon) (3-1) - Lightly raced and speedy, this well-bred gelding has been freshened up since finishing 2nd here at this distance for a $12,500 tag Jan. 29. Sharp in all three appearances, speed/stalker moves up just a bit, and the figure he earned in his latest makes him a strong win candidate if repeatable.

3rd pick: #8 (Not Now Rand) (8-1) - This gelding was an easy maiden winner here going 5.5 furlongs for a $12,500 tag April 3. It was his second back following a series of layoffs, and I like that veteran Stanley Hough brings him back in 15 days for his first facing winners.

4th pick: #6 (Broadway Pete) (4-1) - Speedy sort has been given a two-month break after tiring while wide facing tougher here Feb. 16. Competitive in three straight prior to that, he fits if ready, and it's a plus that Tyler Gaffalione is aboard for the first time. In the mix.
