BELMONT PARK Race #11 (THE SUBURBAN STAKES (G2))

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #1 (TACITUS) (5-2) - This hard-luck colt has been competitive against tougher in the past and has managed to win $2.7M with only three lifetime victories. He has a great post as this stakes starts midway on the clubhouse turn, and he's working fast for this attempt. Blinkers go on, and I like his chances.
2nd pick: #8 (Moretti) (9-2) - A $900,000 son of 'Medaglia d'Oro,' he appears to be coming 'into his own' with a pair of recent victories. The latest saw him win the local Flat Out Stakes going 11 furlongs on a sloppy track June 11 which earned him a career-best figure. In the Pletcher barn, he's a major player in this spot.
3rd pick: #4 (Mr Buff) (3-1) - This veteran New York-bred has won 14 of 36 starts on the dirt and just over $1M. Capable against 'open' company, the speed/stalker has gone 13-4-2-3 here in the past and is an obvious contender.
4th pick: #6 (Sir Winston) (7-2) - The longshot winner here in the 2019 Belmont Stakes (G1), he rallied to finish just over five lengths behind 'Moretti' here June 11. He fits with these, but he will need some upfront pace help to make his late run count.
