Picks and plays for some of the day's major stakes
by Seth Merrow

Quiet on the stakes-scene coast-to-coast this afternoon. We're still in a little bit of a lull post-Breeders' Cup. But things will pick up nicely next week.

Turf wagers are turf only

Best Bets

Aqueduct, Race 8, Who What Win.
Laurel, Race 9, exacta box, Beau's Trip/Dattts Awesome.

Aqueduct: Stuyvesant Hcp G3 $100K

Who What Win...Looks like there should be some speed up front and this guy might be able to stalk and pounce.
Awfully Smart...One of the likely front-runners -- laong with Barcola. Gets the edge on fitness.
Utopia...Hmm, the US debut was very promising -- but kind of a dud last time. We'll know more after today.

Wager: $5 WP on Who What Win.
...$2 exacta box top two.
...$1 exacta box top four.

Ten Bolts.

Wager: $5 WP on Beau's Trip.
...$4 exacta box top two.
...$1 tri key Beau's Trip over next three.
...$1 tri key Dattt's Awesome over other three.

Churchill: Cardinal Hcp G3 $150K

Criminologist...Hard to look past off of her last two.
Argentina...Talented on best, but hasn't been in the winner's circle in a long time.
Jade Queen...Could be the one to catch.
Love Handles.

Wager: $5 WP on Criminologist.
...$2 exacta box top two.
...$1 exacta box top four.
...$1 tri box top four.

Hollywood: Sharp Cat $100K

Always in Style...Has some two-turn experience which should prove useful here.
Foxy Danseur...Most experienced of the bunch and is already stakes-placed.
Czechers...Lightly-raced and should still have some upside. Nice work on 11/5.
Champagne Eyes.

Wager: $5 W on Always in Style.
