Track Belmont Park
Race 2
Overview A competitive 50k starter with several who look evenly matched on paper, though one has upside and reason to move forward.
Pace It looks very slow, so there a chance that #1 MONTATHAM (8-1) is sent early off his sprint return, and the fact he chased the pace when routing before the long layoff.
Trends The turf has been relatively formful throughout the meet, though with hot, dry weather over the past few weeks, closers figure to be at a disadvantage.
Number 1
Morning Line (8-1)
Best Bet Overview #1 MONTATHAM (8-1) (turf only): Stretchout runner also maker his second start off a long layoff, and the sprint comeback was solid, and with his prior tactical speed he should be up close throughout, and figures only to improve off the return run.
Picks & Plays WPS bet and a must-use in the early Pk5, and to kick off the early Pk4 as well.
