Top pick: #10 (RONNIE BE) (3-1) - Speed/stalker stretches out after a pair of solid efforts sprinting here at this level. Three-year-old has a tactical speed advantage in this field and can take this from on, or just off the lead.

2nd pick: #4 (Flashy Sky) (9-2) - He enters off a career best when he chased and held gamely to finish third here at this level and distance on Oct. 1. He draws a better post and should be involved from gate-to-wire. Win candidate.

3rd pick: #3 (War Charger) (4-1) - No-speed type has been competitive in both starts at this tag and is dropping back down after an even effort facing much better just one week ago.

4th pick: #8 (Artax Max) (5-2) - He takes the big drop into claimers for the first time. He's shown nothing in his last pair after returning from a five month layoff, but must be left in the mix on the drop.

5th pick: #2 (Too Many Chiefs) (8-1) - Lightly-raced gelding is improving, has a bit of speed, and breaks just off the rail. May land a share at a big price.
