Let’s Get Ready to Rumble


Portmagee (8-5) is a worthy favorite in today's turf feature for Chris Clement off the class drop but we'll try to beat her with razor sharp Rumble Doll (4-1).

While she's faster on both the Thoro-Graph and Pricci Energy scales and is better posted, today's added furlong is the challenge, whereas the 7F trip is in the favorite's wheelhouse.

We're taking Rumble Doll to win at 5-2 or greater and an exacta box with Portmagee.

Wake Up to Reality, Use Mentality


Try as I might, I cannot honestly beat the Wesley Ward trainee in today's Belmont allowances feature for 2YO fillies sprinting six furlongs on grass.

Dropping out of a graded stakes, turning back with conditioning into a sprint and returning to Belmont turf over which she broke her maiden just seals the deal for Mentality (8-5).

I'd sign for the early line quote right now but doubt very much I could get it. Taking her to win, no price restrictions, and an exacta box with sister turnback, Codrington.

Looking for a Minor Upset in Belmont’s Matron


Looking for a minor upset in today's G3 Matron at Belmont Park. Happy Like A Fool (7-5) is a deserving favorite, returning from Ascot and back on dirt, where she's 1-for-1 on dirt. Further, she skipped a bout vs. colts Saturday to await this.

But after making her winning debut, Honey Graeme (2-1) went north to WO where she finished third in the Ontario Debutante after bearing out at the start from her outside post. She's outside again but the race shape suits her and we'll take her to get the jump on the fave.

Taking Honey Graeme to win at 2-1 or greater, an exacta box with 'Happy', and adding Take Charge Paula to the exotics mix.
