If a Kiss Gets Planted in the Forest, Is It French?
Today's Belmont feature, the Smart N Fancy for 3YO fillies sprinting 6 furlongs is extremely tough--what with big figure horses on short rest v.some that are better going shorter v. others that clearly appear to be moving forward v. ywt others carrying high weight--a real head scratcher.
We'll play some of the percentages with Kiss In The Forest (3-1) who went well gong a mile on this course then duplicated that form going 5-1/2 furlongs on Spa turf. Today's trip, an outside post, versatile style and fairly weighted gives her a good possibility of tripping out beneath the talented Rosario.
Taking Kiss In The Forest to win at early line odds or greater and key-box her in exactas with the sharp and fast Madame Giry (5-1) and the strong working Heaven Knows What (5-1) that's adding blinkers and picking up Ramon.
