Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #5 (PRICING EXERCISE) (7-2) - Bet down to 5-2 favoritism when debuting here at this level going a mile Feb. 22, he tired after being bumped at the break, and raced greenly. Trainer Chad Brown, 37 of 94 (35%) second time out in 2019-20, has Joel Rosario replacing Irad Ortiz, Jr., who is taking time off due to the Corona virus situation.

2nd pick: #6 (Batallion) (4-1) - This colt finished a pace-setting 3rd at this level and distance Jan. 26, then had a rough trip after a troubled break in his follow up Feb. 22. A win candidate.

3rd pick: #7 (Bear Alley) (9-2) - A $525,000 son of 'Will Take Charge,' he switches to the grass after finishing a pace-setting 2nd at this level and distance on the main track here March 7. This colt is clearly improving and must be left in the mix.

4th pick: #10 (Cardiac Kid) (8-1) - On the sidelines since Nov. 30, he was competitive in both grass starts last year. They included a 2nd place finish at this level and distance Sept. 14 at Churchill Downs, and this son of 'American Pharoah' is a threat if ready off the four-month layoff.
