Top pick: #5 (MUSIC CRITIK) (5-2) - Nicely bred gelding has been freshened up since late July after a wide and even effort here at this level and trip. He had finished second in his prior pair and stalker is working nicely for his return.

2nd pick: #2 (Yellow Mountain) (3-1) - Irish-bred has been a disappoint since being imported during the spring of 2013. No-speed type broke her maiden in England on a "poly" surface at Wolverhampton and hasn't run on a synthetic surface since. Has a shot from off the pace.

3rd pick: #1 (Big Island Boy) (7-2) - Grey colt has early speed, breaks from the rail, and is making his first start on a synthetic surface. He has some back class and is a win threat.

4th pick: #4 (Des Ten Four Fame) (10-1) - Very lightly-raced, 5-year-old gelding by "Rock Hard Ten" has run well in both starts and is another racing on a "poly" surface for the first time. Fits, is racing second off almost a 14 month layoff, and is a threat if he handles the surface.
