Top pick: #6 (GAELICO) (7-5) - The probable favorite, he's dropping in class after just missing here in a $75K stakes at this distance Aug 23. Veteran just failed to win his fifth in a row that day and should beat this crew.

2nd pick: #3 (Bernie the Jet) (4-1) - Speedy sort exits the same last race as "Gaelico" and tired late to finish five lengths back of that rival. Colt was racing off a 70 day freshening ad should be a bit sharper this evening.

3rd pick: #1 (Waronthehomefront) (2-1) - Old-timer has won 12 of 34 overall but it's his grass record that sticks out 12-7-2-2. Speed/stalker is working nicely for his first start since last Nov and he draws the rail. Gelding by "War Front' fits with his best but gives away a big recency edge to the top two selections.

4th pick: #4 (Swifterthantaylor) (20-1) - Longshot is a filly taking on males and she does have some talent. A small slice at long odds would appear to be her ceiling against this rather "salty" group.
