Expecting So Much “More” At Belmont (6/8/18)

Jun 8th, 2018 | By | Category: Belmont, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the stakes packed 11-race card on the day before the Belmont Stakes — not a great day at all yesterday and it reminds me that handicapping is not easy,  However, historically, I have my best days when the racing is the most competitive, so let’s revisit after tomorrow to see what transpired.

In race 8, The grade 2 True North, Whitmore (#8) gets a race loaded with speed and can run these down if able to stay close enough early — price will be right.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 2.

In race 4, Dowse’s Beach (#4) cuts back to sprint after comeback and may revert to stalking tactics in a turf event packed with speed — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 8.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 4, 8 and 7

Race 2: 13 (Best Bet) with 6 and 7 (use 2 if 13 scratches)

Race 3: 6, 2 and 8

Race 4: 5 (Best Bet) with 3 and 8

Race 5: 7, 2 and 6

Race 6: 8, 6 and 1

Race 7: 12, 8 and 9

Race 8: 8 (Best Bet) with 3 and 2

Race 9: 8, 5 and 2

Race 10: 5, 8 and 1

Race 11: 5, 7 and 2
