American Timeform racing expert Mark Milligan has a few selections, including one that will take place in Santa Anita in the early hours of British time.
Best bet for US Racing on Sunday
# 2 Americanrevolution, 2pts at 7/2 (min 5/2) – Belmont R8, 21:40
The american revolution made his Keeneland debut in October in a race that threw stacks of later winners, most notably day winner Mandaloun, who will likely receive the Kentucky Derby in the near future once the disqualification from Medina Spirit is officially confirmed.
Not only did Americanrevolution run really well in fourth, but it did so in a catchy fashion after slowly going far and green at the start of the race. His performance also deserves to be improved a bit, as he played a barging match with Mandaloun in the straight before staying well.
A stable stint from Rodolphe Brisset to Todd Pletcher has also taken place since those early days, and while Brisset himself is a perfectly capable coach, a move to Pletcher’s barn must be seen as a positive. Lasix first time is the icing on the cake for a selection that seems overpriced at 7/2.
# 3 Sea Dreamer, 1pt to 7/2 (min 11/4) – Santa Anita R10, 02:02
Tonight’s second pick is in the early hours of the morning but might be worth the wait (although I’ll be watching on video the next morning!).
Simon Callaghan newbies tend to improve for experience, although his good guys are more than able to win first, and Sea dreamer may well be above average.
The $ 250,000 daughter of the best American stallion Into Mischief, Sea Dreamer worked in style for this debut album, including with 3rd year ranked Paige Anne.
While it’s always worth treating workouts with a pinch of salt, the Selection seemed to travel better than Paige Anne over 5f earlier this month, and if she can produce what she shows. in the morning, it will prove to be hard to beat from the start.
