SARATOGA Race #10

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #11 (FINANCIAL STABILITY) (5-2) - A very lightly raced 5yo, he takes a big drop in class for this attempt. He finished a wide and even 4th when facing tougher at Belmont June 6 in his first since Jan. 25. From the Chad Brown barn, he draws a fine outside post at this 6.5-furlong distance, and leading ride Jose Ortiz is aboard.
2nd pick: #8 (No Lime) (6-1) - Unraced since late October, he's another taking a big drop and will be switching from turf to dirt. He's the only one entered at this 2l condition who broke his maiden locally, is working fast, and is a strong win candidate if ready.
3rd pick: #7 (More Than Striking) (15-1) - He chased a quick pace while wide before tiring at this level going six furlongs at Belmont July 11. Back on a quick turnaround, he's potentially dangerous as the top two selections have questions about their current fitness.
4th pick: #3 (Deputy Flag) (9-2) - The main speed, he's switching from grass to dirt while dropping to a new low in his second back following a bit more than five months on the sidelines. It's noted that trainer Brad Cox has Irad Ortiz, Jr. back on the re-ride.
