ELMONT, NY (The Spread) - After a disappointing showing in the Kentucky Derby, Mubtaahij is well rested and will look to upset the field in Saturday's Belmont Stakes.

Triple Crown contender American Pharoah, meanwhile, is the favorite at 4/5 while Frosted is 5/1 and Materiality is 13/2. The only other contender with better odds than Mubtaahij is Madefromlucky at 12/1.
After back-to-back wins in the Al Bastakiya and the Grade 2 UAE Derby, Mubtaahij finished eighth in the Kentucky Derby before sitting out the Preakness. He also has wins in the Maiden on December of last year and Conditions on January 15, 2015.
The Kentucky Derby was the first time in five starts that Mubtaahij failed to finish in the money. After getting acclimated to U.S. surface at Churchill Downs, perhaps Mubtaahij will fair better on Saturday while running against a smaller field.
