SARATOGA Race #10

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #2 (TILSA) (5-2) - Augustin homebred shortens up after a 4th place finish going a mile for a $75K tag at Belmont June 21. She had run 2nd when debuting at Tampa Bay Downs April 29, and I give her a slight edge.
2nd pick: #10 (Microcap) - The field's only debuting filly, she's working fast, and is from the Chad Brown barn, 22% first out in 2019-20. A big threat if ready.
3rd pick: #4 (Tesorina) (5-1) - She's been out of action since a pair of starts in the spring of 2019. Competitive in one of those, she's working fast for Wesley Ward, 21% off of long layoffs, and he drops her into a claimer (22%). A factor if ready.
4th pick: #5 (Dipping In) (8-1) - Longshot has been competitive several times facing tougher and is dropping into a career soft spot for Doug O'Neill. In the mix.
5th pick: #7 (Morality Clause) (15-1) - Competitive several times last Summer/Fall, she tired badly July 5 at Belmont in her first start since Sept. 19. In a claimer for the first time, I think she can factor at a big price.
