Top pick: #6 (VALDINA SAINT) (2-1) - He has some back class on these and comes off a close up 3rd place finish here Aug 23. It was his first back from a 7-week freshening and stalker should get a fast/and or contested pace to rally into.

2nd pick: #7 (Caspian Crown) (5-2) - Very quick out of the gate, he's gone 14-2-8-0 overall and was an impressive winner here in his local debut Aug 15. New York bred by "Bernardini" earned a big "figure" that day and is a major threat right back.

3rd pick: #4 (Denali South Peak) (9-2) - Prairie Meadows shipper was a winner there facing weaker at this distance on a "sloppy" surface Aug 7. He earned a career best "figure' that day that fits with the top two selections if repeatable.

4th pick: #5 (Got Shades) (5-1) - He stalked and tired here in a one-mile grass contest just eight days ago. A stakes winner last year on the turf he's making back-to-back starts for the first time since last fall. He's picked a tough spot this evening.
