Belmont horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:48) Morley Growers Market 0MW (1200m)
#4 – Kelora – Bet @ Sportsbet
Kelora has looked solid at the trials and that form should stack up on debut. The two-year-old gelding finished third in both trials at Belmont Park and getting the inside draw is ideal.
Steven Parnham rides and punters should get each-way odds in the opening race of the day. Watch the market for a betting push.
Race 2. (13:23) Tabtouch Better Your Bet 0MW (1200m)
#1 – Hear Me Sing – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hear Me Sing doesn’t have an excellent form line for this race, but he showed ability when running second on debut.
The speedy type could find the front after drawing barrier 12 and he could show a good turn-of-foot at the top of the straight.
Punters will get value and they’re worth taking.
Race 3. (14:02) Tabtouch Westspeed 0MW (1300m)
#5 – Vital Blast – Bet @ Sportsbet
The six-year-old owns five wins and eight placings from 30 starts and he could turn his poor Belmont form around.
He has only one placing from five attempts at Belmont, but there are no superstars in this field and he could take advantage.
Barrier six helps, so expect an improved run.
Race 4. (14:42) Amelia Park BM72 (1650m)
#3 – Zaratite – Bet @ Sportsbet
Money should be with Zaratite, which owns four wins and four second placings from only nine career starts.
The son of Animal Kingdom was only a half-length behind the winner fresh up and he was always going to need the run.
It bodes well for this race and William Pike rides.
Race 5. (15:22) Crown Perth Plate (1400m)
#7 – Mountain Ash – Bet @ Sportsbet
Mountain Ash ran second on debut at Belmont and although he was a double-figure chance, it was a nice effort.
The Adam Durrant-trained gelding should have won when finishing a nose behind Astrape, which is an excellent form guide for this race.
Put him on top in an even contest.
Race 6. (15:58) Pennisula Dining Room BM62 (1200m)
#3 – How’s the Serenity – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old filly has shown good ability from 11 starts and she could add another win to her record.
She owns four wins and four placings from 11 starts, including a last-start effort at Belmont by over two lengths.
3kg comes off her back and that bodes well.
Race 7. (16:33) Mrs Macs 1MW (1000m)
#4 – Forest War – Bet @ Sportsbet
Forest War was too good for them at Northam last start and he’s capable of scoring again. It was his second win from the last three starts, so he’s in form and worth following.
The son of War Chant owns a win and a placing from two starts at Belmont and all three career wins came over this distance.
Expect another good run against his opposition.
Race 8. (17:10) Beaufine Stakes (1000m)
#7 – Miss Conteki @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Form is with Miss Conteki, which scored four consecutive wins before running second behind Long Beach last time out.
The Simon Miller-trained mare owns seven wins from nine starts and with only 54kg on her back, she is the testing material.
Expect a big effort from the favourite.
Race 9. (17:45) Furphy BM66 (2100m)
#3 – Gunnago – Bet @ Sportsbet
Gunnago comes off a much-improved run for second at Belmont and the experienced seven-year-old loves the track.
He owns three wins and five placings at Belmont and although he’s finding it tough to win races, we wouldn’t be ruling him out.
Race 10. (18:15) All Flags 1MW (1400m)
#2 – Sentimental Queen – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sentimental Queen shoots for three straight wins and we wouldn’t be ruling her out. She won by just under a length at Ascot last start and although dropping in distance, her confidence is rising.
3kg comes off her back and that will help with the big weight. It should give her a chance to win her sixth race from only 15 starts.
Race 11. (18:55) Western Racepix BM72 (1200m)
#4 – Puli – Bet @ Sportsbet
Puli scored his last two starts at Belmont and he’s every chance of making it a hat trick on Saturday.
The four-year-old won by a nose in a driving finish last start and that experience should do him the world of good.
3kg comes off his back and we like his chances.
