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

Orglandes Belmont Park
Today's best bet Orglandes runs at Belmont Park

Nick Shiambouros returns with two more selections from the Friday meeting at Belmont Park...

"I think she is sitting on a big effort and recommend backing her at BSP"

Back Orglandes Race 9 at BSP in the 22:20 at Belmont Park

Malathaat ready on debut

Race 4 19:30 Belmont Park - Malathaat

I have been waiting for the main track debut of Malathaat for a while.

This beautifully bred filly by Curlin is out of the brilliant mare Dreaming of Julia, who won the Grade 1 Frizette and went on to finish second to Beholder in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies. She went through the ring for just over $1m and certainly looked the part. I was a little surprised Stonestreet Stables sold her, as they usually keep quality fillies for breeding. Her work tab is strong and put in a bullet work six days ago which is encouraging. Todd Pletcher trained the Dam and knows the family well. She will be ready and recommend backing her at around 2.56/4.

Orglandes to upset

Race 9 22:20 Belmont Park - Orglandes

I am going to take a chance with Orglandes in this $62.5k optional claimer on the turf course.

This French import caught the eye on US debut when finishing second in an allowance race at Monmouth Park last month. She made up a lot of ground in the closing stages and finished the race with good energy. Considering this was her first outing in over a year this was a decent effort. Trainer Chad Brown is a master conditioner with older fillies and mares, and significant improvement is expected. I think she is sitting on a big effort and recommend backing her at BSP.
