Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #9 (HEIGHT) (3-1) - This well-bred colt stretches out in distance after finishing 2nd at this tag in a Belmont sprint July. It was his second back off a long layoff, his first in a claimer, and Bill Mott has him set up for a big effort.
2nd pick: #5 (Kickin Kirby) (10-1) - Longshot from the Zito barn has more speed than most and is stretching back off an even effort in a local sprint just 11 days ago. 3yo has a big shot at large odds.
3rd pick: #8 (Double Advantage) (4-1) - Pletcher trained colt ships from Gulfstream where he rallied after a slow start to miss by 3.5 lengths when debuting in a sprint facing tougher. Trainer wins at a 24% rate second time out and at a 22% clip stretching horse out in distance. In the mix.
4th pick: #2 (Tactician) (6-1) - Freshened up since May 22, he runs first off a Bob Diodoro claim (31%), and he's adding blinkers (32%). The gelding fits, draws well, and must be left in the mix.
