Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #11 (MARVIN) (3-1) - Competitive in all four starts, he's cutting back in distance after missing by a 'nose' here going a mile at this level Feb. 29. He's gone 3-1-0-2 at this sprint distance, has a bullet five-furlong breeze March 11, and he draws a good outside post. He gets top billing in a stakes quality field.
2nd pick: #2 (Liam's Pride) (4-1) - He's improved a lot since trainer Doug O'Neill added blinkers to this colt Feb. 15. $160K son of 'Liam's Map' broke his maiden at this distance in fast time 1:10 flat March 7 and should be in this from gate-to-wire.
3rd pick: #8 (Ancient Warrior) (10-1) - Colt was only a 1/2-length behind 'Marvin' here at this level and distance Feb. 2, then tired after a rough pace-setting trip between runners under the same conditions Feb. 23. He worked fast March 8 and is capable of factoring at a square price.
4th pick: #5 (Tumbling Sky) (7-2) - He sold for $200K as a 2yo in training last May and broke his maiden debuting at this distance Aug. 10 at Saratoga. Unraced since, he's been working fast at the Fair Grounds for the Asmussen barn, and he is a factor if ready.
