“Melody” Sounds Good At Belmont (7/1/17)

Jul 1st, 2017 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card — not much to say about yesterday except one best bet winner and not much else, so let’s see how I do today.  All races handicapped for the turf, but there are thunderstorms in the forecast, so keep aware of any changing conditions.

In race 9, The grade 2 Mother Goose, Unchained Melody (#2) gets class test here, but just won at the distance and has more speed than most in this short field and will be a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 6.

In race 8, Benevolence (#7) likes the local surface and gets a wicked pace to set up late run — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 3.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 2, 8 and 3

Race 2: 4 with 2 and 3

Race 3: 6 with 1 and 5

Race 4: 1, 6 and 5

Race 5: 6, 4 and 7

Race 6: 5, 10 and 1

Race 7: 2 (Best Bet) with 8 and 7

Race 8: 7 (Best Bet) with 8 and 3

Race 9: 2 (Best Bet) with 4 and 6

Race 10: 2, 3 and 7
