Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #8 (SPITBALL) (3-1) - This 3yo by 'City Zip' missed by a 'neck' at this tag going six furlongs at Belmont June 18. Only his second start, it was his first since Feb. 28, his first on the grass, and he'll be tough with just a bit of improvement.
2nd pick: #9 (Propensity) (2-1) - He tired last out when going seven furlongs at Belmont facing tougher, but he had been competitive in three straight prior to that. 4yo is dropping into a claimer for the first time and is a strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #7 (Sir Chubby) (8-1) - This 4yo has finished within range in five straight attempts and is shortening up in distance. He has Javier Castellano aboard for the first time, and a fast and/or contested pace would help his late-running style out.
