RACE 1 BELMONT PARK
ALDA sets the standard on her course third on debut and is expected to take a forward step. Contained, Steal My Sunshine and FRANKEL AT ASCOT are newcomers to monitor closely in the betting market.
VALUE: FRANKEL AT ASCOT
STONEY BENNETT rattled the crossbar over this trip at Laurel last time and should go close with a repeat performance. Big runs from JAVELIN and Moneymeister are also forecast.
WIN: STONEY BENNETT
Setting The Mood remains open to further improvement, though preference is for French import EBONY, who has stakes form to her name and is capable of figuring at this level on her US bow. NO MO TEMPER is also worth a market check on her return from a long absence.
VALUE: NO MO TEMPER
BELLEZA stepped forward from her debut when second at Aqueduct in November and this drop in class can see the four-year-old make it third-time lucky. LOVE ME TOMORROW and Allure Fortune might be left to fight it out for minor honours.
VALUE: LOVE ME TOMORROW
WAR FILM has run with credit on both his outings so far this season and he can build on those efforts in what appears a winnable contest on paper. TRICKY MAGICIAN and Monaghan appeal most of the remainder.
WIN: WAR FILM
VALUE: TRICKY MAGICIAN
ORSAY was disappointing on her second career start at Aqueduct last November but the fact Chad Brown has persisted with her suggests she is over what stopped her on that occasion. SKY QUEEN is respected, along with Back Channel.
VALUE: SKY QUEEN
The application of blinkers could help ASSIDUOUSLY get back in the winners’ enclosure following a respectable third on his reappearance. On Base and Shamrocket both tasted success last time and are respected, with ARITHMETIC another to consider following a promising start to his racing career.
DOVEY LOVEY makes plenty of appeal in search of the hat-trick but the vote goes to GRAND CRU CLASSE, who romped to an impressive nine-length success on debut and the $335,000 buy looks to have a bright future. Mrs. Danvers is another to catch the eye in the early part of her racing career and is also noted.
WIN: GRAND CRU CLASSE
VALUE: DOVEY LOVEY
SIMPLY MISS RED picked up a silver medal on her reappearance and David Donk’s four-year-old makes plenty of appeal as she attempts to go one better. Wicked Happy was fourth behind the selection last time and is respected, but a bigger challenge could be provided by the useful COME STORMING.
WIN: SIMPLY MISS RED
VALUE: COME STORMING
