RACE 1 BELMONT PARK
Wesley Ward has a pair of runners in this and KING OF MIAMI could prove the pick after working in eyecatching fashion at Keeneland earlier this month. Stablemate Blame The Booze has not been working anywhere near as well but merits respect, as do Centavo and Pitaman.
WIN: KING OF MIAMI
FOX RED and Banana Thief have claims on the pick of their recent form, but this could go to the class-dropping DUNCASTLE. Thomas Morley’s grey won well in a similar race to this two starts ago and could consign a flop in better company to the rubbish heap here.
VALUE: FOX RED
STRIKING SPEED was all at sea on turf last time, but he made a decent fist of things from the front on his debut on dirt and could bounce back to that form. ROAD HOME has claims if at his best, while Little Mazzy’s Aqueduct form offers some hope.
WIN: STRIKING SPEED
VALUE: ROAD HOME
MISS JAK should relish this drop in grade and the eight-time winner gets the nod today ahead of the recent C&D scorer MALIBU MISCHIEF and Cold Hearted Pearl.
WIN: MISS JAK
VALUE: MALIBU MISCHIEF
KITTEN BY THE SEA and Sterling Beauty are both capable of going well but preference is for the unexposed PRINCESS FAWZIA, who hit the crossbar on her seasonal return here last month.
WIN: PRINCESS FAWZIA
VALUE: KITTEN BY THE SEA
JEWEL OF ARABIA has run well in all three previous starts and it will take a big performance from one of her rivals to beat her this evening. VIVAZANO edges out Robin Sparkles to be the pick of the remainder.
WIN: JEWEL OF ARABIA
ROMAN CITY arrives on a treble and could take plenty of beating in her current mood. Recent winner NOBLE JEWEL and the consistent Merlins Muse could fight it out for the places.
WIN: ROMAN CITY
VALUE: NOBLE JEWEL
TWISTED TOM rattled the crossbar here last time, with Durkin’s Call back in third, and should be thereabouts if running to a similar level tonight. Hat-trick seeker OUR LAST BUCK could also be involved in the finish.
WIN: TWISTED TOM
VALUE: OUR LAST BUCK
LONG WEEKEND arrives having landed the hat-trick in April and Thomas Amoss’ colt is likely to have benefited from a break since his last run. The main threats appear to be WONDRWHERECRAIGIS and Newstome.
WIN: LONG WEEKEND
TINY MAGOO went close to scoring on her racecourse bow at Aqueduct in February and the filly is taken to go one better on this occasion. RUNNING ON ENTRY is respected along with Little Red Button.
WIN: TINY MAGOO
VALUE: RUNNING ON ENTRY
