Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #9 (REGAL SPEAKER) (5-2) - He ships in from Delaware Park where he raced evenly when debuting against tougher July 13. He's dropping in class for Arnaud Delacour, 29% second time out, and he's adding blinkers (25%). Homebred meets a weak field and gets top billing.
2nd pick: #5 (K.K.Ichikawa) (4-1) - Lasix is added to this gelding who finished 3rd of 12, missing by five lengths when debuting at this level and distance June 21 at Belmont. He worked fast there July 12, and has breezed twice at the Spa for this attempt.
3rd pick: #4 (No Salt) (7-2) - Pulled up and vanned off after hitting the gate hard at the break June 26 at Belmont, he's dropping into a claimer, and Bill Mott has him making back-to-back starts for the first time.
4th pick: #1 (Allied Invasion) (9-2) - Debuting gelding is from the red hot barn of Chris Clement, 27% first out over the past 19 months. He has the rail, Rosario aboard, and is a threat if ready.
