Racing analyst Carl Nicholson closes the week with Sunday's action at Belmont.
Best Bet: RISKY MISCHIEF (3/1 ML) - RACE 8
RACE OF THE DAY - RACE 8
This looks a competitive little Stakes contest worth of $60,000 to the winner. CRITICAL VALUE comes into this on the back of a break and when last seen in December ran well enough in the Demoiselle Stakes at Aqueduct. That is some of the best bits of form on offer and she must go close with the stable knocking in plenty of winners here. BIG Q is another back from the lay off and with John Velazquez keeping the ride after a good run when 2nd on that last start, she should be involved. RISKY MISCHIEF, from the same barn as CRITICAL VALUE, was last seen in the Group 1 Spinaway Stakes and this unexposed type could have lots more to offer. This daughter of Into Mischief looks to have plenty of upsides to her chances, and the booking of Jose Ortiz, who has been on board for both runs, looks a positive too. NAKED AVENGER has a bit to find on the form but has a fitness edge over plenty.
RISKY MISCHIEF could have more to offer having been thought good enough to contest a Group 1 contest when last seen, and she can get the better of stable mate CRITICAL VALUE.

TRUE GRACE gets a steep class drop angle and will not get many better opportunities to get that vital win. LIQUOR & DANEGOLD are the obvious dangers, but have a bit to find on form.
RACE 4HURRICANE HILL returns to the track with what looks a golden opportunity to resume winning ways in a race that looks there for the taking on his best form. WILD WILLIAM is the closest danger.
