Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #5 (MADAM DEPUTY) (2-1) - She chased and tired to finish a distant 3rd when debuting at this level and distance July 9 at Belmont Park. Bet down to 4-1 that afternoon, she was claimed by Rudy Rodriguez, a 19% winning angle. He's worked her five times since, adds blinkers, and I give her a slight edge.
2nd pick: #6 (Hey It's Tati) (5-2) - Nice debut facing weaker at Belmont June 26, saw her involved every step while missing by a 1/2 length in a field of 12. Moved to the grass while facing tougher here in her follow up July 24, she tired after racing near a quick pace. Back down in class and on the dirt, she adds blinkers, Jose Ortiz gets aboard, and 3yo has a fine post. A strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #3 (Vinda Machine) (15-1) - She tired badly sprinting here on the grass at this level Aug. 13, following a pair of back-to-back 3rd place finishes on sloppy tracks. Even paced in that pair, she's capable of getting a share at a square price.
