Xpressbet and NBC Sports analyst Eddie Olczyk is back for another big Saturday at Belmont Park. Edzo's key spot plays on the 10-race program take flight in a pair of maiden turf events. Last Saturday's Belmont spot plays doubled their money with Mind the Coin ($8.60) delivering off a 9-2 morning line.

Race 2 // 1:33PM ET // Maiden Special Weight // 1 1/16 Miles (Turf)
#4 Silver Token (4-1 ML)

Proven turf runner has been in the superfecta in all 6 tries sprinting on grass. He looks like a stretch-out type and capable first time going long. Trainer Horacio DePaz wins 33% with these types. Win play.

Race 6 // 3:36PM ET // Maiden Claiming// 1 1/16 Miles (Turf)
#4 Wicked Happy (8-1 ML)

After trying tougher at Saratoga, she’s back with friends at the maiden claiming $40,000 level. This filly is a one run-type closer under apprentice Luis Cardenas and gets a 7-pound weight break. Win play, but only settle for 3-1 odds or better.
