Take Nevin’s Filly, Nuffsaid?

There's no shortage of early speed in today's Belmont Park, an NX2 optional claimer for fillies and mares sprinting 6 furlongs.

It comes down of two of the six in here for us: speedster Sky Skier (7-2) and the late running Nuffsaid Nuffsaid (5-2).

Ski Skier is razor sharp, looms the speed of the speed, and blew out sharply for this. But Nuffsaid Nuffsaid should take advantage of the speed dynamic here, is drawn nicely outside the speed types and gets regular rider, the position conscious Jose Ortiz.

It doesn't hurt that trainer Michelle Nevin has been rolling after a slow start to her year, and is a profitable 22% effective when running back with this type of spacing.

Taking Nuffsaid Nuffsaid to win at early line odds or greater and key-boxing her first and second in multiples with Sky Skier and the sharp favorite, Laguna Girl (2-1), Joe Orseno giving a leg up to Joel Rosario.
