Top pick: #12 (NICKELS FOR PAT) (6-1) - Price play raced evenly when debuting here facing tougher on a very muddy surface on Sept. 10. She's worked twice since, drops in class, and a fast track should be to her advantage. Trainer Frank Bravo has won with six of his last seven maidens taking this dip in class.

2nd pick: #6 (Shift Leader) (8-1) - Speedy filly is well bred and has been competitive in both starts. Daughter of "Northern Afleet" has taken some money in each appearance and is a win candidate in this spot.

3rd pick: #2 (Midtownbevlybrown) (12-1) - One of two entered by trainer Veronica Griggs and the pair race uncoupled. Daughter of "Omega Code" has shown good early speed in both starts facing better and has been working fast for this attempt. Drops in class and must be left in the mix.

4th pick: #7 (Zanira) (7-2) - The second of the Griggs fillies, she finished a pace-setting third at odds of 68-1 when debuting here at this tag on Sept. 17. She's worked fine since and can factor with a repeat of her initial outing.

5th pick: #1 (Miss Cat Dancing) (10-1) - She has the rail, drops in class, and has blinkers added. Filly tired in her debut facing tougher and should be much more competitive this evening.
