Top pick: #5 (BRILLIANT MESSI) (2-1) - The morning line favorite, well bred gelding is racing first off an Asmussen claim (21%). Three-year-old by "Bernardini" is moving from dirt to turf and stretching back out in distance. The horse to beat, but make sure you reverse your exactas.

2nd pick: #8 (Schiller) (10-1) - By grass champ "Artie Schiller" he's moving to the turf and trying a two-turn trip for the first time. Look for a competitive effort at a square price.

3rd pick: #6 (Hardtozip) (8-1) - Good barn (Randy Morse) moves him way up in price and switches him to the infield for the first time. Lightly-raced and improving, his early speed makes him a threat.

4th pick: #2 (Darn Good) (5-2) - One-run type drops back down in class after an even effort facing tougher on Oct. 9. Competitive at this level in the past and must be left in the mix.
