Nick Shiambouros returns to Belmont Park with two more selections on Belmont Oaks day...
"Trainer Linda Rice drops him aggressively which is a positive sign"
Magic ready on US debut
Race 5 20:04 Belmont Park - Magic Attitude
I am going to side with Magic Attitude in this fascinating Grade 1 on the turf.
This talented Galileo filly makes her US debut for trainer Arnaud Delacour and owners Roy and Gretchen Jackson. On her latest start in the French Oaks she finished an excellent third to Fancy Blue.
She is on the small side physically, but has a nice turn of foot as she showed when winning a Group 3 at Longchamp in May. The Godolphin owned Antoinette is the obvious danger and will probably attempt to make all. She has a high cruising speed but looks vulnerable to a closer. I expect Magic Attitude to stalk the leaders and come with her run in the straight. I recommend backing her at BSP.
Fast Gordon to graduate
Race 10 22:46 Belmont Park - Fast Gordon
Fast Gordon should run well at a decent price in this $40k maiden claimer on the inner turf.
This well related gelding finished sixth in a Maiden Special Weight at Saratoga last month. He made his move at the entrance to the straight, but failed to deliver a challenge behind the game winner. Trainer Linda Rice drops him aggressively which is a positive sign. Rice places her horses where they can be competitive and had a winner on opening day of the meeting. This race is wide open so recommend backing him at BSP.
