Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #7 (LEAD GUITAR) (2-1) - A $200,000 daughter of 'Maclean's Music,' she ships from Kentucky where she was sharp in two of three facing 'open' company. She's gone 6-2-2-0 on the grass and is 3-1-1-1 when in with fellow New York-breds. An easy maiden winner here at this distance a year ago, she'll be tough in this spot.
2nd pick: #5 (Speightstown Gal) (5-2) - This lightly raced daughter of 'Cairo Prince' was involved every step when finishing 2nd of six, missing by just under a length here at this distance July 25. A $150K purchase, she's a strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (Fetching) (9-2) - She's racing third back following a bit more than seven-month layoff. She won her return June 19 at Belmont going seven furlongs, then tired in a stakes there at mile July 2. Working steadily for this attempt, it's her first-ever traveling shorter than seven furlongs.
4th pick: #3 (Elegant Zip) (10-1) - This longshot was less than a length behind 'Speightstown Gal' here July 25. She's been competitive in both starts since switching to the grass after 14 straight racing on the dirt. In the mix.
