Today's Belmont feature goes as the eighth, a wide open allowance event for fillies and mares 3YO and up. The most interesting entrant is the Bob Hess ship-in Acenda (6-1).

Making her third start off the layup, she ships in very sharp from Del Mar where she was a good third after being out-posted in slip 10 going a mile coming off a short-sprint prep in a belated 4YO debut.

Picking up Johnny V., she's found a spot where her late-run style should suit the speedy race shape.

Taking Acenda to win at 4-1 or greater and key boxing exactas first and second with well positioned Sustained (3-1) and Kiss Me Lola (7-2), exiting a series of rapidly run sprints and stretching to a more suitable trip.
