Today’s feature is the always entertaining Ashley T Cole for state-bred turf specialists going nine furlongs on the Belmont inner turf course. The two most likely for us are favorite Banrock (2-1) and improving late developer, Logic Way (8-1).

Banrock has proven consistently fastest on performance figures. He’s a multiple winner at the distance and over this course and is extremely sharp now, seeking his third straight after winning the West Point with authority in Saratoga last out. Kent Desormeaux, 3-for-3 aboard Banrock this year, take the re-ride.

Logic Way has improved this season after moving into the Rick Dutrow shed. His figures are forward looking and his development figures to continue, given incremental movement. He has enough tactical speed to play it off the break with a cozy inside draw
And if it weren’t for a nose defeat two starts back, Edgar Prado would also be 3-for-3 for the year on his mount. Weight will be a strong factor here, as Logic Way drops seven pounds to 114 while the favorite picks up two to 121.

Taking Logic Way to win at 5-1 or more, an exacta box with Banrock.
