BELMONT PARK Race #8

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #9 (BEHIND THE COUCH) (3-1) - She runs today for the first time since late October. The speed/stalker is working fast for her return and was competitive here in all three starts last year. Lightly raced 4yo gets a slim edge if ready.
2nd pick: #7 (Officer Hutchy) (7-2) - One of five 3yos taking on older rivals, she's gone 4-2-2-0 to date all at Aqueduct. Stakes placed Dec. 15, this home-bred is training steadily for Linda Rice, and is an obvious win candidate.
3rd pick: #10 (Good Credence) (8-1) - She 'hit the gate' and raced evenly once in stride in seasonal debut at Gulfstream April 11. Speedy 3yo went 4-1-1-1 last year and was a 6.5-length maiden winner here at this distance Sept. 6. It's noted that John Velazquez, who rode her that day is back aboard.
4th pick: #5 (Quality Stones) (6-1) - Home-bred broke sharply and was never threatened when winning her debut by almost five lengths at this distance Feb. 1. Training steadily, she must be left in the mix in her first facing winners.
5th pick: #2 (Happy Sophia) (15-1) - This longshot has been idle since finishing a pace-setting 3rd at this level and distance March 14 at Aqueduct. That was her first race in 5.5 months, and she may hold down a share in this one with some improvement.
