Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #3 (ELENA MARIE) (3-1) - She pressed the pace before weakening to finish 4th of 11, beaten by seven lengths facing special weights here Feb. 29 in her first start in six months. Back on a quick turnaround, she drops to a new low, and gets a slight edge.
2nd pick: #4 (Dehydration) (4-1) - She tired late after a wide trip to check in 4th when debuting here at this tag and trip Feb. 8. Bet down to 5-2 that afternoon, daughter of 'Stay Thirsty' runs off a John Sadler claim. He's worked her four times since the barn change, and she's a strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #5 (Unsweet Tea) (6-1) - This filly was bet down to 2-1 favoritism here at this level and distance Jan. 26, but she bobbled at the break and went evenly after that to check in a distant 4th. It was her first since Nov. 23, and this speed/stalker is dangerous with a clean beginning.
4th pick: #1 (Mesange) (9-2) - She rallied to finish a distant 2nd Jan. 26 and was 6.5 lengths clear of the troubled 'Unsweet Tea.' Competitive in three of her last four, she's capable of factoring in this spot.
