Tacitus is the horse to watch at the Belmont Stakes and has already tasted victory from post No. 10 this season at the Tampa Bay Derby:
Jockey Jose Ortiz will again be riding Tacitus and has form in the race. He won in 2017 with Tapwrit and knows what it takes to secure victory in New York.
Tacitus came in third at the 2019 Kentucky Derby but should prefer the distance at Belmont Park, and his post position may also prove advantageous:
War of Will is also highly fancied for Saturday's race with morning line odds of 2-1. He will start just inside the favourite after being drawn in post position No. 9.
The Preakness Stakes winner is the only horse set to feature in all three Triple Crown races in 2019, and he could become just the 12th horse to win Preakness and Belmont after missing out on the Kentucky Derby, per Thomas Schlarp at Sporting News.
War of Will's assistant trainer David Carroll offered some insight on his condition:
Justify won last year's Belmont Stakes from post position No.1 on his way to securing the Triple Crown, but it is longshot Joevia who will be on the rail for Saturday's race.
The inside gate has seen 24 winners at Belmont since 1905, but it would be a big upset if Joevia were to scoop victory on Sunday at morning-line odds of 30-1.
