US Horse Racing Tips: Best bets from Belmont Park on Friday

Today's best bet Blackjack Davey runs at Belmont Park

"The stretch out to the mile distance will suit and should have a lot more to offer"

Back Blackjack Davey Race 8 at BSP in the 21:42 at Belmont Park

Nick Shiambouros returns to Belmont Park with two more selections from the New York track...

Build to Suit the one

Race 4 19:35 Belmont Park - Build to Suit

Build to Suit should go close in this interesting $80k optional claimer on the main track.

This talented performer finished fifth to Funny Guy in the State bred Commentator Stakes over this course in July. He held every chance in the straight but weakened quickly in the closing stages. I do not think he got the mile trip and this run is best forgotten. He has won twice over today's seven-furlong distance and is a three-time course winner. He has a touch of class, and won a State bred Stakes over this course last year. His work tab is solid and am expecting a big effort. I recommend backing him at around 3.412/5 on the exchange.

Blackjack Davey primed for victory

Race 8 21:42 Belmont Pak - Blackjack Davey

Blackjack Davey should make his presence felt in this allowance race on the main track.

This Posse gelding finished second in a similar event at Saratoga last month. He ran on well in the closing stages but could not get to grips with the game winner. The front two finished well clear of the remainder. The stretch out to the mile distance will suit and should have a lot more to offer. Trainer Linda Rice has had a fast start to the meeting, along with jockey Jose Lezcano who has bagged four winners. His work tab is strong and is primed for a big effort. I recommend backing him at BSP as this is a competitive race.
