BELMONT PARK Race #7

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #7 (Violent Delights) (7-2) - Stalker missed by a 'head' going a mile here at this level on June 18. It was his first start in around 100 days, and he gets a slight edge in this spot.
2nd pick: #6 (Macho Boy) (12-1) - He's stretching out in distance while facing winners for the first time. The 3yo broke his maiden in gate-to-wire style traveling six furlongs here June 25, and his early speed makes him dangerous in this spot at a big price.
3rd pick: #2 (Bobbyfromthepalm) (3-1) - This gelding has been on the sidelines since breaking his maiden going a mile at Aqueduct while facing $30K state-bred claimers on Dec. 29. Working fast at the Fair Hill Center, he's a win candidate if ready.
4th pick: #4 (Southern Brigade) (9-2) - This 4yo takes a big drop in class while switching from grass to dirt. He's a strong fit on figures, and it's noted that Irad Ortiz, Jr. is aboard for the first time.
