Belmont Park then serves up nine races, the opener set for 18:00 and the closer scheduled for 22:12, and there is an extra place being paid out in the 20:03 over 1m.
Cloud Forest (SP), Making It (SP) and Gasoline (SP) all finished second last time out and the trio are expected to go close in the 20:03, while the Joel Rosario-ridden Sidekick (SP) will be hoping to have a big say on matters.
