It's not very often there's an opportunity to find value on a Pletcher-trained runner, but today's Belmont feature, the G3 Hill Prince for 3YO on turf, offers that chance with Notacatbutallama (6-1).
Between the contentiousness of the field and the outside draw, the elements are there for a good price should he show up with his 'A' game. The colt rallied from uncharacteristically far back at Pimlico, his momentum carrying him wide into the lane and was ultimately beaten by a good trip winner.
Taking Notacatbutallama to win at 5-1 or greater and keying him in multiples with strong finisher Infinite Magic (7-2), graded-stakes toughened Joha (8-1) and uncoupled Pletcher Red Rifle (6-1).
