Belmont horse racing tips
Race 1. (14:13) Allan Guelfi Plate (1000m)
#8 – The Front Bar – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Front Bar is getting better with every run and the two-year-old filly comes off a second placing at Belmont.
She is a daughter of Sessions that gets the benefit of William Pike in the saddle and that will drop her odds considerably on race day.
55kg is an ideal weight and she has upside.
Race 2. (14:49) Tabtouch Westspeed 0MW (1400m)
#7 – Black Lightning – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old mare owns two wins from six starts and she has every chance of going back-to-back in this race.
She looks to have a bright future and jumping off the inside draw with only 55kg on her back makes her tough to beat.
We expect bookmakers to have her firm in the market.
Race 3. (15:29) Free Entry to Belmont BM62 (1300m)
#5 – Jedi Mind – Bet @ Sportsbet
Jedi Mind was good enough to score back-to-back wins earlier this preparation and anything close to that form would be good enough.
The Brett Pope-trained three-year-old owns a win and a placing at Belmont, and he is unbeaten over this distance.
Punters should get each-way odds and they’re worth taking.
Race 4. (16:08) Morley Growers Market BM72 (2200m)
#2 – Zaratite – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to cap off three consecutive second placings is Zaratite, who owns four wins and five second placings from 10 starts.
The consistent and talented five-year-old loves Belmont with two wins and he gets the services of William Pike in the saddle.
Bookmakers will have him firm in betting markets to get the job done.
Race 5. (16:40) Perth Racing Club Handicap (1300m)
#4 – Little Flirt – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old mare is shooting for three consecutive wins and she is a confident runner. She won by 2.3 lengths at Belmont two back before winning by four lengths at Northam.
It’s solid form for this level of racing and with two wins and two placings from seven starts at Belmont, she loves the track.
Barrier five is ideal and punters should get value odds.
Race 6. (17:20) Amelia Park 1MW (1600m)
#1 – Sentimental Queen – Bet @ Sportsbet
The daughter of Al Maher owns five wins from 15 starts and she is in career-best form this preparation.
She scored back-to-back wins at Ascot before running second at Belmont last start, so her form is excellent and she has the class edge on this field.
Barrier five is ideal and Lucy Warwick takes the ride.
Race 7. (17:50) Crown Perth BM66 (1400m)
#2 – Notorious One – Bet @ Sportsbet
Notorious One is an enigmatic type that either wins or doesn’t go close. However, we think the five-year-old will go close on Saturday.
The son of Animal Kingdom owns five wins from 10 starts and he comes off a heavy-track win at Belmont, so he has no problem with conditions.
He is unbeaten in three starts at Belmont, so stick with him.
Race 8. (18:20) H.G Bolton Sprint (1200m)
#5 – Last of the Line @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Last of the Line is a six-time winner from 10 starts and that record is far too good to overlook.
The four-year-old son of Blackfriars is unbeaten at Belmont and although his best form comes over longer distances, he is capable of sprinting.
That is reflected in betting markets and we wouldn’t be leaving him out.
Race 9. (19:00) Heineken 3 BM72 (1000m)
#4 – Agent Jay – Bet @ Sportsbet
Agent Jay comes off a win at Belmont and he is more than capable of going back-to-back at this level.
The son of Snippetson owns six wins and three placings from 21 starts, so he is consistent and getting a 3kg claimer in the saddle is ideal.
He draws the inside barrier and that suits over this distance.
