Top pick: #4 (JENNYWAY U WANT IT) (7-2) - Filly just failed at this level going "Down the Hill" March 14th in her first start since making her debut last Oct. Daughter of "Good Journey" ran evenly in her latest at the same 6.5-furlong distance and will attempting a two-turn trip for the first time. Working fast and the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #3 (Unusual Style) (4-1) - She rallied while wide to check in second of 12, beaten just over a length racing here at this level and distance March 29th. She had a tough outside post that day, draws better, and it's apprentice Nicolas off and Nakatani on.
3rd pick: #10 (Lethal Story) (5-1) - Home-bred by "Unusual Heat" raced evenly and finished third here at this distance on April 12th. It was her second back from a 5 1/2 month break and has been working well since. In the mix.
4th pick: #6 (Warren's Cracker) (8-1) - Longshot raced evenly in the same March 29th contest as "Jennyway" and was 3 1/2 back of that rival at the finish. Working well since and it's encouraging that Bejarano stays aloft.
5th pick: #7 (Seraphic Slew) (9-2) - She disappointed last out as the favorite in the same March 29th contest as several others. Another that's working fast and can factor with her best.
