Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #2 (TACITUS) (8-5) - He had a lot of tough close up defeats during his 3yo season in 2019, but broke through last out at Belmont with an easy win in the G2 Suburban at this distance July 4. Working well locally, stalker has a good post and it's noted he ran 2nd here last year in the Traver's Stakes (G1) at this 10-furlong journey. He'll be tough with a clean break and trip.
2nd pick: #4 (Global Campaign) (5-2) - A lightly raced 4yo son of 'Curlin', he's won five of eight overall and enters off a sharp win inthe G3 Monmouth Cup at 9 furlongs July 18. It matched his career best figure and this colt's flexible running style makes him a win candidate.
3rd pick: #5 (Spinoff) (3-1) - This colt from the Pletcher barn won the Alydar Stakes here at this distance Aug. 9. It was his best effort since coming off a 8.5 month layoff in late April and this 4yo by 'Hard Spun' must be left in the mix.
