The first selection of the day comes in the Grade One Woody Stephens Stakes and Jackie's Warrior for trainer Steven Asmussen looks the one to beat.

The consistent three year old was last seen winning the Grade Two Pay Day Mile Stakes at Churchill Downs over a mile and although dropping a furlong that looks the best form on offer heading into the race.

The colt has won over seven furlongs before and has also won at Belmont before over a mile so has plenty going in his favour.

OR: N/A
Days: 307

A horse for beer lovers is Moretti who looks to have a big chance at a decent price in the Grade Two Brooklyn Stakes over 1m4f.

The Todd Pletcher trained horse is a highly consistent animal, having three wins and two seconds in his six races to date, with one of his best performances coming last time out over 1m6f at Saratoga.

He is a proven stayer that has ran well over 10, 11 and 14f in the past and for these type of events you need horses that will certainly last the trip and he will.

Days: 36

Going back to the Grade Ones and in the Acorn Stakes over a mile Search Results for Chad Brown looks tough to beat if on song.

The filly was a $310,000 purchase as a yearling and on her four starts to date has performed to a high standard landing a hat-trick of wins before finishing second last time out.

Having landed a Grade Three over 9f in April, last time out she was seen finishing a narrow second in the Grade One Kentucky Oaks and that sets the standard in the race.

Days: 35

Got Stormy for Mark Casse is our selection in the Grade One Jaipur Stakes and this six year old mare is highly consistent in big events.

The mare has won three of her last five races, with her last victory coming in February over a mile at Gulfstream when landing the Grade Three Honey Fox Stakes.

Although last time she was below her best in the Breeders Cup Distaff Turf Mile Stakes at Churchill Downs, she has been given over a month off and should be back to her best in this.

Days: 48

One of the races of the evening is the Ogden Phipps Stakes and Letruska for trainer Fausto Gutierrez could be extremely tough to pass.

The five year old has landed three of her last four events taking a Grade Three over a mile at Gulfstream by six lengths and backed that up in January with another black type win,

She stepped up to a Grade Two at Oaklwan Park and was a narrow second behind Shedaresthedevil who she needs to reverse the form with, but last time out she got back to winning ways in the Grade One Apple Blossom Handicap, seeing off Monomoy Girl and Swiss Skydiver.

One to beat.

The next Grade One on the card is the Just A Game Stakes over a mile and the Chad Brown trained Blowout will not be far away.

The five year old has two wins and three seconds in her last five runs, last time out getting back to winning ways after 7 months off in the Grade Two Distaff Turf Mile at the Breeders Cup meeting.

That is some of the best form on offer in the race and he takes on many of the same runners he beat last time out.

Coming towards the end of the card and the Grade One Hill 'N' Dale Metropolitan Handicap over a mile and Mischievous Alex is looking for a hat trick.

The four year old has been electric this season, winning a Grade Three over six furlongs in February and then last time out he stepped up to a Grade One over 7f and scored by close to six lengths.

Going up another furlong will be no problem having previously won over a mile and he can be the horse to challenge the favourite.

The Grade One Manhattan Stakes over 1m2f sees a smart field head to post and Domestic Spending looks to be the pick of the bunch.

The Chad Brown trained four year old has raced five times winning four events, including going on to win all of his last three races.

In November the son of Kingman landed a Grade One at Del Mar and then after seven months off the track came back to land back to back Grade Ones finishing in a dead heat with rival Colonel Liam.

Looking for a hat-trick of black type honours he takes on his rival and looks between them two at the top of the market.

The final runner of the day from us comes in the feature Grade One Belmont Stakes over 1m4f and Kentucky Derby fourth Essential Quality gets the nod from us.

The Godolphin owned three year old made his debut in September 2020 and before his last run went on to land all five of his races in very taking fashion.

Having landed Grade Two and Three races at Oaklawn Park and Keeneland, he headed back to Churchill Downs for the Derby and in a controversial renewal finished a tight fourth.

He will need to improve for the extra 2f, but overall looks an exceptionally bred horse and was bought for these big races.
