Xpressbet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his top plays.

Belmont Park Race 6 (4:43 pm ET)

#8 Varatti (3-1 ML)

Promising debut runner has shown talent on video in the morning for trainer Todd Pletcher, who has finished first or second with 8 of his last 12 first-time starters, including a pair of winners Saturday at Belmont. Win bet.


Churchill Downs Race 5 (6:56 pm ET)

#8 Hero Dragon (10-1 ML)

Longshot look to a horse who had a troubled start in his career debut, but finished strongly over a shorter distance to split the field. Additional distance and starting outside of rivals could help for a clean run and big finish. Win-place bet.
