What: Commentator Handicap
Who: Zivo
Where: Belmont Park
When: Saturday, May 31

A full field of 13 entered at Belmont Saturday for the $200,000 Commentator Handicap for New York-breds at a mile and online spots betting site players have a smorgasbord of opportunities.

Last year Readtheprospectus was coming off a win in a $62,500 optional race before sitting 4th early in the Commentator and then rallying for a length and a quarter win as the chalk with a 92 Beyer Speed Figure.

Prohibition starts from the rail and is coming off a clever win against entry-level allowance runners. He has speed, doesn???t need the lead to win but has never won at Belmont.

Moneyinyour Pocket has not raced since February but has won off the vacation in the past and has been around the wire in several stakes of late.

Big Business has won 4 or 5 at this venue and was game in his last win vs. easier in March. In the good hands of David Jacobson, this gelding must be left in the mix.

Smooth Bert won a state-bred stakes in his career but it was way back in 2012 and he has trained fast and steadily for this return to the sport.

Zivo has been expertly managed. A perfect 3 for 3 this year, he has won 7 of his 13 career starts including a win in a $100,000 stakes in his second start of 2014.

Awesome Vision has been away and has limited speed. He did run super in defeat when beaten a head off a 7-week layoff last year.

The defending champ will be a handful. This comebacker has been getting some R and R at Saratoga. He is repeatedly proven in return situations, his trainer Chad Brown is winning with everything not nailed down and the condition wins at a 25% clip with returnees like this.

Comandante got good last year for about 2 months but then has been very dull in his efforts this season.

Weekend Hideaway brings :45 and change speed to the party and will try to steal this race. He was getting to the winner sprinting in last in a $100,000 stakes and he has a right to get this distance as his sire earned over $1.2 routing.

Pinball has been a wizard vs. softer but this is his first stakes assignment and he caved in last time for no apparent reason.

Bernardo took time to figure it out but like Pinball, has never faced this caliber foe.

This Hard Land doesn???t run them alike and was just handled by today???s rival Zivo.

Crafty Dreamer completes the field from the outside and he has just lacked the killer instinct in his career. He was life and death for the lone victory this year and has 7 slices to only 3 wins.

When the gates spring open look for Comandante, Weekend Hideaway and This Hard Land to fight for the lead and make sure there is a fast pace.

This will set up an ideal trip for Zivo, who can track the speed from 4th or 5th and unleash the winning rally starting at the top of the lane.

Good luck.
