Best bets from Belmont Park on Friday



Nick Shiambouros was on the mark when both his selections won including best bet Saratoga Flash at BSP 4.69. Nick heads back to Belmont Park with two more fancies…

Entwine a straightforward choice

Race 1 18:00 Belmont Park – Entwine

I am going to take a chance with Entwine in this interesting $50k claimer on the Widener turf.

This Fast Company filly finished third to Gambling Cat on US debut at Tampa Bay Downs in March. She made a strong four wide move at the entrance to the straight, and finished willingly without troubling the winner. This was a super effort and would have learned a lot from the outing. She won a Newmarket maiden in great style last October, and clearly has ability. The Widener turf will suit her down to the ground. It has a long sweeping turn, which suits runners from Europe. She should be a decent price so BSP is recommended.

Tri Saint Lorenzo upset minded

Race 2 18:31 Belmont Park – Tri Saint Lorenzo

Tri State Lorenzo could run well at a big price in this $14k non-winner of three on the main track.

This gelding has been highly tried since winning a $25k non-winner of two impressively at Aqueduct last December. He disappointed on his latest start over this course when finishing well beaten at the $35k level on a sloppy track. The conditions did not suit, and this run is best forgotten. This is his easiest task to date, and a reproduction of his best effort would see him go close. Trainer Carlos Martin dispenses with the blinkers, and has engaged the services of apprentice Luis Cardenas who had a big priced winner here yesterday. BSP is recommended.
