Belmont horse racing tips
Race 1. (14:11) Agent Fresh Plate (1200m)
#3 – Clairvoyance – Bet Now
The two-year-old filly is coming off a half-length win at Belmont and she is every chance of going back-to-back.
She sat on the pace on debut and she will only strengthen up with the run under her belt. That win followed three trial wins and she could be a classy type.
Watch for positive betting moves on the day.
Race 2. (14:51) Tabtouch Westspeed 0MW (1000m)
#5 – Classy Lassy – Bet Now
Classy Lassy is sparingly raced but when she does get to the races, she shows plenty of ability.
The four-year-old mare by Playing God finished fifth at Ascot last start and that followed two wins from her previous five starts.
54.5kg helps and we’re confident of her chances.
Race 3. (15:31) Free Entry to Belmont Park BM72 (1000m)
#5 – Indian Pacific – Bet Now
Neville Parnham lines up the three-year-old that is classy on his day. He has won four of his six starts and although beaten last start, he didn’t lose any admirers.
He was only a length behind Long Beach, which has come out and won again on Saturday. They are strong form lines and punters might have to take short odds.
Race 4. (16:08) Peninsula Dining Room 1MW (1000m)
#3 – Bedouin Belle – Bet Now
The four-year-old mare has finished in the money in 10 of her 18 starts and she looks a good chance of improving her record here.
She is coming off a third placing at Belmont where she finished only one length behind Gunflint. That form should hold up nicely and having William Pike in the saddle helps.
Race 5. (16:40) Don Martin B’day BM60 (2200m)
#5 – Truly Great – Bet Now
Truly Great is from the powerful Williams stable and having Pike in the saddle is a good guide. The four-year-old went well last start and he has improvement to come.
The son of Dundeel is a two-time winner from six starts and drawing barrier nine is the only negative for this run.
Bookmakers will likely have him at short odds.
Race 6. (17:20) Glenroy Chaff BM62 (1300m)
#8 – Giant Leap – Bet Now
William Pike has chosen to ride Giant Leap instead of Boomtastic and that is a good sign for punters.
The Williams-trained three-year-old scored by a length at Pinjarra last start, suggesting more wins are coming.
54kg is a steal and he is a gelding with plenty of upside.
Race 7. (17:55) H.G. Bolton Sprint (1200m)
#7 – Red Can Man – Bet Now
Red Can Man ended his campaign with three consecutive wins earlier this year and that form is worth following.
The three-year-old is a six-time winner overall and although facing a tough field here, he gets the inside draw and a light weight on his back.
It could pay to stick with him during this campaign.
Race 8. (18:30) Amelia Park BM72 (1400m)
#8 – Inspirational Girl – Bet Now
Inspirational Girl scored easily by 1.5 lengths last start, making it five wins from her first six starts.
She could be an open-class type and it gives Pike another high-class ride. She is only going to improve with time and punters might have to take short odds come Saturday.
Drawing barrier three is ideal and she will get a dream run throughout.
Race 9. (19:05) Crown Perth 1MW (1400m)
#3 – Aberdeen Queen – Bet Now
Aberdeen Queen is a four-time winner from seven starts that is coming off a handy second placing at Belmont.
She runs her best races at Belmont, with a record of four starts for two wins and a placing. Look for the daughter of Universal Ruler to add to her record.
The only negative is drawing barrier 13 so she will need some early luck.
