Jerkens 4YO to the Front in Belmont Feature

Interesting Belmont feature, especially if it remains on the grass, an N2X optional claimer going a mile on the WIdener Course.

There's no excellent reason why Front (5-1) shouldn't repeat in this spot. He was good enough to win off the bench for Jimmy Jerkens--profitable in LAY-2 scenarios, showing the kind of development you like to see in newly turned 4YOs.

Add good position toward the outside, with tactical speed and kick, Rajiv Maragh should be able to work out good trip in this matchup.

Taking Front to win at 7-2 or greater and an exacta box with course lover Cheyenne Nation (6-1).

{If On Dirt: Escape From Reality}.
