SARATOGA Race #8

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #2 (BEBE BANKER) (4-1) - He's moving back up in class after a very easy win by almost nine lengths going a mile at Belmont facing 'open' $25,000 claimers June 21. Heavily bet that day in his first race in a bit over three months, he's the speed nearest the rail, and I like his chances.
2nd pick: #8 (Danny California) (7-2) - Even paced type has finished 3rd in two straight at Belmont without really threatening. However, he loves today's nine-furlong trip (4-2-1-0) and is the only horse entered who has ever been successful at it in the past. The 5yo is a strong win candidate with Rosario back aboard following a one-race absence.
3rd pick: #1 (Six Percent) (12-1) - Longshot tired at Belmont going a mile on July 3 and was 9.5 lengths in back of 'Danny California' that day. The type that can 'run all day,' he was racing off a 7.5-month layoff and draws a ground-saving post today. He could factor if the pace is fast and/or contested.
