Top pick: #8 (CAUSE U R MY BABE) (4-1) - She enters off a career best when beaten a 1/2 length here at this level on Jan. 20. It was her second off a 5 1/2 month layoff and home-bred can take this with a small move forward.

2nd pick: #2 (Gouyen) (5-2) - She's the probable favorite off a solid second-place finish when debuting at this level at Hollywood Dec. 22. Working fast and an obvious win candidate.

3rd pick: #4 (Western Kitty) (4-1) - One of four debuting fillies, she's from the same barn (Mike Puype) as "Babe." She's working very fast and Mike Smith and Puype have won with 10 of 30 when teamed up over the past 14 months.

4th pick: #9 (Wild at Best) (5-1) - Another first-time starter and this filly had an impressive 5-furlong gate breeze here on Feb. 8. The Mullins barn is having a strong meet and has won at a 22% rate with debuting stock over the past 14 months.

5th pick: #7 (Shakeitupbetty) (6-1) - "Betty" has rallied to finish third in both starts, the latest coming here Dec. 29. Working fast and a threat with her best.
