Hand-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. 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.
First Charmer (#5)
Steadied in the first furlong last time; was not ridden out through the stretch.
Seven furlongs should suit her better.
Race ratings indicate she’s facing a softer field here than in her return race.
5/2 on ML
Port Au Prince (#3)
Did not get a great trip in his only turf route attempt against a tougher field at Saratoga.
Making his first start for a claiming tag on the turf.
Draws well towards the inside, an advantage on the inner course.
7/2 on ML
Highland Sky (#5)
Was much the best last time, overcoming a wide trip and early move to win.
His typical wide sweeping move should be better suited to Belmont’s turf course.
Proved his class against some of the best in his division last year.
8/1 on ML
