TimeformUS Horses in Focus and Top Play for Friday September 19th

topbannerHand-selected by The TimeformUS team, Horses in Focus stand out on our feature sets, such as pace projector, TimeformUS speed figures, spotlight ratings, trainer ratings, pedigree ratings, etc. We offer expanded analysis on one of the Horses in Focus, as well as designating which horse is our Top Play on the day. Expect to see TimeformUS Horses in Focus on this blog typically every Wednesday-Sunday. If Horses in Focus are available for tracks with a later post-time, they will be added to this post throughout the day.

Today’s Top Play at Belmont

Race 8:

#10 Mills

>Read a detailed analysis of this horse

Had little chance last time when wide throughout behind a front-running winner.

Gets a trainer change today, which may do him some good after failing to develop so far this year.

Takes blinkers off (100 rating for this trainer) and switches to Rosario, a combination of moves that has produced two winners at this meet already for Mott.

12/1 on ML.

Win bet on Mills.

Additional Horses in Focus at Belmont

Race 4

#8 Blue Collar Cat

Makes 3yo debut with a drop in class and a change to a sharp young trainer (86 overall rating).

Ran a TFUS Speed Figure of 69 the last time he ran in maiden company, a figure that makes him competitive in this race without any further development.

Lands in the right kind of race, with the two ML favorites having combined to go 0-for-31 to this point.

10/1 on ML.


Race 5:

#4 Helm

Stepped up to a new top figure of 100 in commanding score over synthetic two back.

Faced tough scenario when wide against a clear-cut front-running winner on turf last time.

Can get a more comfortable trip rating in range with more than one speed entered in this spot.

4/1 on ML.
