I will update this page up until the big race. Feel free to comment your picks below or anything else that I have missed. GL in the Belmont!
1 Twisted Tom- ML: 20-1
New York bread colt has so far been in the winners circle 3 times but not against graded stakes fields.
2 Tapwrit- ML: 6-1
Had a bad trip in the Derby and broke bad as well in the Bluegrass at Keeneland. He needs to stay out of trouble if he wants to win.
3 Gormley ML: 8-1
Speed Figures has declined in every single start ever since he won in January at Santa Anita.
4 J Boys Echo ML: 15-1
He has the greatest closing speed in the race. Can he win though?
5 Hollywood Handsome ML: 30-1
Seems to be outclassed in this field. I think he is a bust in this race.
6 Lookin At Lee ML: 5-1
I don't like his running style but should be used in your exotic plays.
7 Irish War Cry ML: 7-2* (*-Favourite)
Curlin's son should rate this field with his "ware-down" speed and pace. A must-have in your picks.
8 Senior Investment ML: 12-1
This horse has improved in every race, but his running style may keep him too far back. Your decision if you want to play them.
9 Meantime ML: 15-1
Has loads of early speed, but he is not an American Pharoah. Last horse to go wire-to-wire was Da'Tara in 2008.
10 Multiplier ML: 15-1
A no show in the Preakness and also has bad pedigree concerns. Both his sire The Factor and his broodmare sire Trippi were both sprint horses.
11 Epicharis ML: 4-1
A 2nd Japanese horse to start in the Belmont since Lani came up 3rd in a well deserved race. This horse should have some money bet on him
12 Patch ML: 12-1
My favourite longshot play in the Derby and Belmont. He skipped the Preakness just like his sire Union Rags in 2012 and ended up winning the race. Like father like son?
My Picks are to follow tomorrow morning/afternoon!
