Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #6 (ASSUME) (6-1) - Well backed when debuting here in a sprint at this level Feb. 23, she tired after pressing a quick pace while wide to check 4th of 12, beaten just under eight lengths. Trainer, Tod Pletcher, 25% second time out since Jan. 1 of 2019, stretches her out in distance (22%), and she's been working fast at the Palm Beach Downs Center. I like her chances, but make sure you box your wagers in this contest.

2nd pick: #2 (Never Forget) (9-2) - She's finished 2nd in two of three with her only subpar effort coming when she finished 4th going a mile on a sloppy surface Nov. 30 at Churchill Downs. Stalker draws well today and looks like a serious player.

3rd pick: #7 (Envoutante) (3-1) - The probable favorite, she's finished 2nd in both starts, one each on dirt and turf to begin her career. They were at a mile, and this filly should like this two-turn trip on the dirt.

4th pick: #1 (Token) (7-2) - Home-bred by 'Curlin' set a quick pace and held to miss by only a length going a mile here Feb. 9. She has the rail, Rosario aboard, and must be left in the mix.
