Best bets from Belmont Park on Thursday



Nick Shiambouros heads to Belmont Park with two selections from the Thursday meeting…

L’Indescrit to graduate

Race 3 19:02 Belmont Park – L’Indescrit

L’Indescrit should go close in this interesting $40k maiden claimer on the inner turf.

This War Front filly finished down the field behind Take Charge Ro in a Maiden Special Weight at Gulfstream Park in January. She stalked the leaders in to the straight, but was left behind when the pace lifted. In truth she was a tad disappointing. She has some decent form in the book, and will benefit from the aggressive drop in class by trainer Barclay Tagg. Her work tab is strong, and should be ready to do herself justice despite the layoff. BSP is recommended.

Mr. Alec for Ghislaine Head

Race 8 21:49 Belmont Park – Mr. Alec

Mr. Alec is my idea of this fascinating $80k optional claimer on the inner turf.

This talented gelding finished a close second to Hieroglyphics at Aqueduct last November. He delivered a strong challenge inside the final furlong, and would have gone by in another stride. This was a super effort and should have more to offer. The extra yardage will suit him down to the ground, and am expecting a big effort. Trainer Christophe Clement had a couple of winners at the meeting last week, and is in good form. The gifted Jose Ortiz has the riding assignment. BSP is recommended.
