Two of Saturday's US SmartPlays run at Belmont

Timeform's US team bring you bets from Belmont and Woodbine on Saturday...

Stellar Path won 6 of 14 starts when trained in France, and picked up that thread on her first US start for Christophe Clement when taking a stakes race at Aqueduct...

Belmont race 6 (20:55 BST) - Alexandrie

Alexandrie is still lightly raced, and has plenty of potential for improvement on her first start of the year for the powerful Todd Pletcher stable. She takes on plenty of exposed older rivals here, so the biggest threat to her may be another relatively lightly-raced three-year-old in the shape of Sweetpollypurebrd.

Belmont race 7 (21:26 BST) - Quimet

A competitive starter allowance contest, but nowhere near as classy as some of the races that Quimet has been pitched into on his last few starts. Having faced the likes of Divining Rod, Materiality and Madefromlucky recently, Quimet should appreciate this less testing opposition. Day of Fury and Special Ops are both still with potential, however, and will be no pushovers.

Woodbine race 8 (21:45 BST) - Stellar Path

Stellar Path won 6 of 14 starts when trained in France, and picked up that thread on her first US start for Christophe Clement when taking a stakes race at Aqueduct. She can take this step up to G2 company in her stride. Stable companions, Deceptive Vision and Overheard look the main dangers.
