Friday 06/13 06:05 PM Eastern
Top pick: #4 (I'LL WRAP IT UP) (4-1) - Grey gelding comes off a career best when he finished 3rd of 12, beaten 1 1/2 lengths racing here at this level going a mile on May 18th. Three-year-old by "Tapit" has improved since coming off a 2 1/2 month freshening and had a sharp work on June 5th. He has a solid shot at upsetting "Quotient".
2nd pick: #3 (Quotient) (7-5) - Lightly-raced gelding ships back from Churchill Downs where he finished third in the "American Turf" stakes (G2) on May 3rd. Working fast since returning here and one-run type is a strong win candidate at a short price.
3rd pick: #2 (Brother Soldier) (7-2) - Freshened up since Feb. 13, he's working nicely and has fine early speed. His lone previous grass attempt produced a career best figure and he should be involved from start-to-finish.
4th pick: #1 (Sheila's Footsteps) (8-1) - English-bred import broke slowly and made up some late ground when finishing two back of "I'll Wrap it Up" in his North American debut on May 18th. It was his first in five months and he's worked nicely since. Stretch threat with an alert getaway.
