Here are our best bets for today’s action at Belmont.

1:20 pm Belmont Park (Race 1) – Saratoga Chrome 5/2 (2-star play)

This daughter of California Chrome was first past the post over this trip at Saratoga in August, prior to being demoted to 3rd place, and she has acquitted herself well in 2 subsequent starts, including when finishing runner-up over this course and distance in October.

Off the track since finishing a neck 2nd over the same trip at Aqueduct the following month, she races on Lasix for the first time today and looks capable of breaking her maiden with Kendrick Carmouche booked to ride.

2:22 pm Belmont Park (Race 3) – No Salt 7/5 (2-star play)

No Salt has demonstrated good form since joining Michael Miceli, winning twice including in the Dads Caps Stakes over an extended 7 furlongs on a good main track at Aqueduct last month.

Odds-on and raced close to the pace that day, the Tonalist gelding is versatile with regards tactics having raced from off the pace when scoring over 6 1/2 furlongs at Aqueduct in December. He is taken to make his first start at this venue a winning one on his return to allowance optional claiming company.

4:53 pm Belmont Park (Race 8) – Doubly Blessed 2/1 (2-star play)

Doubly Blessed finished 3rd of 4 in the Grade 2 Kelso Handicap over a mile on a fast track at this venue in September.

He proved no match for the top class Life Is Good that day but has been in good form so far this year, placing in a Listed stakes prior to taking the More To Tell Stakes over a mile on a main track described as good at Aqueduct last month. He looks up to recording a 7th career success.
