Belmont (USA) Derby and Oaks

These are both invitational races with the Oaks giving a free berth to the winner of the Diana Trial at Hoppegarten.

Both races are over 2000m on the turf with the Oaks market headed by Newspaperofrecord 5/2 for Chad Browne and Irad Ortiz.  Stablemate Cambier Parc has J-L Ortiz and they are 4/1. 

Concrete Rose is 3/1.  Of the raiders Pascal Bary's Olendon is 9/2, Aidan O'Brien's Just Wonderful 6/1 and the Japanese raider Jodie is 20/1.

The Derby has a full field of 14 with one emergency and is quite open.  Browne- I Ortiz have Digital Age on 9/2, Seismic Wave is 5/1, Demarcheller is 6/1.  We like the Japanese runner Master Fencer who has remained in the US to run here, and the Irish raider Cape of Good Hope is on 10/1 with Wayne Lordan riding.

There's a dirt race in the Gr 2 Suburban over 2000m with 11 runners.  Catholic Boy is one 9/5, with a big gap in the market to Preservationist on 5/1 and 6/1 for Marconi.
