Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #10 (CARACARO) (9-2) - Colt by 'Uncle Mo' stretches out to a mile after finishing a pace-setting 2nd of 10, missing by just under 2 lengths debuting here at 7 furlongs Dec 8. He's worked twice since, draws well, and he gets a slight edge.

2nd pick: #9 (Don Bourbon) (7-2) - This son of 'Tiznow' sold for $210,000 as a 2yo in training last Spring. Improving with each attempt, colt missed by a 'head' going 8.5 furlongs at Churchill Downs on a sloppy surface Nov 23. He's breezed three times at the Palm Meadows Center since Dec 27 and it's noted that trainer Ian Wilkes has Javier Castellano aboard.

3rd pick: #3 (Spa City) (6-1) - He made up ground during the stretch run debuting here in a 6 furlong sprint Dec 21. A Godolphin home bred by 'Street Sense', he's back on a quick turnaround for Kiaran McLaughlin and enters off a sharp half-mile dril Jan 4.

4th pick: #5 (Unrighteous) (4-1) - Calumet home bred has breezed a half-dozen times at Palm Beach Downs since Dec 4 with four of those works being of the bullet type. Debuting colt by 'Violence' is from the Pletcher barn, 23% first out since Jan 1 of 2019, and is a threat if he runs to his a.m. drills.
