Top pick: #4 (UNBRIDLED'S NOTE) (5-2) - Hard-hitter always gives his best, and is cutting back in distance after an even fourth place finish here going a mile in the "Arcadia" stakes (G2) on Feb. 1st. He likes this "down the hill" distance (8-3-2-1), and should get a fast pace to rally into.
2nd pick: #5 (Rosegold) (4-1) - Very speedy colt is working fast on this surface for his first since Oct. 20th when he finished second here at this distance in a $75K stakes. 4yo will be involved every step, and is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #6 (Sweet Swap) (9-2) - Another who likes this course (8-3-2-1), he rallied to finish second in a $90K stakes Jan. 26th in his first since last May. Stalker draws a nice post, and is a threat with any improvement whatsoever.
4th pick: #1 (Moonshine Bay) (4-1) - Veteran speed/stalker breaks from the rail, and is going dirt to turf for this attempt. He's been to the winner's circle 15 times in 37 starts, but gives away a lot of grass experience to all the others.
