Belmont horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:59) Tabtouch Westspeed 0MW (1600m)
#4 – Street Fair – Bet @ Sportsbet
Street Fair comes off back-to-back wins at Pinjarra and Belmont, so he’s in good form and we’re expecting another top effort.
The five-year-old gelding owns only one win at the track, but it came at a good time and he’s capable of handling this field.
He handles all track conditions and we like his chances.
Race 2. (14:39) Breast Cancer Research 2YO (1000m)
#2 – Canny Jack – Bet @ Sportsbet
Canny Jack didn’t show much in his first two starts at Ascot, but he improved considerably when winning at Belmont last start.
The two-year-old son of Galah scored a narrow win and it’s good to see William Pike retain the ride, so punters should be confident.
Barrier two is ideal and we’re backing him in.
Race 3. (15:18) The Walker Family 1MW (1200m)
#3 – Bedouin Belle – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old mare is only a three-time winner from 31 starts, but she owns 13 placings and she deserves another win.
She has five placings from seven starts at Belmont and six placings at the distance. It’s only a matter of time before she wins again and punters should get each-way odds.
Race 4. (15:53) Amelia Park BM72 (1000m)
#3 – Amasenus – Bet @ Sportsbet
Amasenus comes off five consecutive victories and it’s tough to ignore that stellar form. She scored her last two wins at Belmont, so she handles the track.
The four-year-old daughter of Time For War is a four-time winner at the distance and there is no reason why she couldn’t win again.
It could pay to follow any positive betting moves.
Race 5. (16:25) Byron Bay Premium Lager BM62 (1400m)
#6 – Real Charisma – Bet @ Sportsbet
Real Charisma is searching for three consecutive wins after scoring by a length on the track.
The Williams-trained three-year-old looks to have a bright future and having William Pike in the saddle is a bonus.
Punters shouldn’t expect big odds on race day.
Race 6. (17:05) Peninsula Dining Room BM78 (1400m)
#7 – Comfort Me – Bet @ Sportsbet
Comfort Me comes off consecutive victories and four of his five career wins have come at Belmont.
The four-year-old son of Playing God rarely runs a bad race and with five wins and four placings from 15 starts, he should be right in the mix.
Carrying 55kg helps and he will be tough to stop.
Race 7. (17:35) Belmont Oaks (2000m)
#1 – Sheza Chalmer @ $1.85 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Steady money has come for Sheza Chalmer, which scored by a length at Belmont last start against similar opposition.
The three-year-old filly owns three wins and three second placings from nine starts, so her future is bright and punters agree. She opened at $2.05 and has since firmed considerably.
Expect another tidy effort at the short odds.
Race 8. (18:05) Aquanita Stakes (2000m)
#1 – Kerman Rock @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Kerman Rock comes off a second placing behind Sheza Chalmer and it could be an excellent form guide for this race.
The three-year-old son of Snippetson was only a length behind the Oaks favourite and carrying 55.5kg at this level is ideal.
Money is coming and he could start shorter.
Race 9. (18:40) Crown Towers BM66 (1600m)
#2 – I’m Pretty – Bet @ Sportsbet
I’m Pretty didn’t show much last campaign but she has fired up nicely this preparation with consecutive victories.
The five-year-old mare owns four wins at Belmont and her 1.8-length win last start was classy, so she could win again.
Barrier three is ideal and having Pike in the saddle helps.
