Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #6 (BARDOT) (2-1) - This daughter of 'Candy Ride' drops down after a solid 2nd place finish when debuting here at this distance April 4 for a $25K price tag. She showed sharp early speed and held gamely for the place spot facing 11 rivals. Trainer Todd Pletcher, 22% second time out in 2019-20, has her spotted to win.
2nd pick: #7 (Harmonic Thunder) (6-1) - She had no chance as the favorite last out after being bumped heavily at the break when going a mile on the grass April 17. She's switching to the dirt, shortening up, and trainer Saffie Joseph, Jr. is adding blinkers. Home-bred by 'Honor Code' breezed a bullet three furlongs in 00:35.60 May 2 and looks set for a big effort today.
3rd pick: #2 (Commanding Lady) (4-1) - This daughter of 'Tapizar' tired while wide when sprinting for a $50K tag April 10 in her first back following a two-month freshening. Trainer Gus Delgado drops her down to race for a $16K claiming price, and she must be left in the mix.
4th pick: #1 (Granny Bradley) (9-2) - State bred tired after rushing up after 'hitting the gate' at the break April 4. $35K purchase finished a bit over six lengths in back of 'Bardot' that day and is capable of factoring today with a trouble-free beginning.
