Belmont horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:59) Happy 70th Costa 2YO (1000m)
#1 – Rumour Says – Bet @ Neds
Rumour Says scored on debut at Belmont and the two-year-old filly could remain unbeaten.
The daughter of Deep Field won by two lengths against a tidy maiden field and that form stacks up ideally at this level.
Punters should expect her to be well-backed.
Race 2. (14:34) Free Entry to Belmont BM72 (2200m)
#5 – Bold Success – Bet @ Neds
Looking to win three of his last four starts is Bold Success, who is an experienced type still with upside.
The eight-year-old owns four wins at Belmont and it was good to see him win on the track last time out.
Getting 2kg off his back and dropping to 53kg is only going to help his cause, so put him on top off the inside draw.
Race 3. (15:09) Tabtouch Platinum Handicap (1400m)
#1 – I’m Pretty – Bet @ Neds
I’m Pretty is finding it tough to get back to winning form but we’re giving the six-year-old mare another chance.
She is a seven-time winner from 28 starts and four of them have come at Belmont, so she loves the track.
3kg comes off her back and her odds could be pretty.
Race 4. (15:49) Amelia Park BM62 (1200m)
#6 – Colossal – Bet @ Neds
Colossal started his career with back-to-back wins before running second at Belmont last time out.
The three-year-old son of Snitzel was only a narrow margin behind the winner and he only needs luck from the wide draw to go close.
It could pay to watch for late betting moves.
Race 5. (16:29) Crown Perth 1MW (1400m)
#6 – Galactic Storm – Bet @ Neds
Galactic Storm ran well enough without winning at Belmont last start and his form prior included two wins and three placings.
The three-year-old son of Street Boss won fresh up at Pinjarra and anything close to that form would be good enough.
He hails from the Durrant stable and that always drives the odds down.
Race 6. (17:05) Ascend Sales Trophies BM78 (1400m)
#9 – Startrade – Bet @ Neds
Startrade owns 10 wins from 26 starts and that record is tough to overlook at this level.
The five-year-old son of Trade Fair has done most of his racing against easier opposition but he should appreciate being down in the weights.
Barrier two is ideal and punters could get value odds.
Race 7. (17:40) Waroa-Belmont Guineas (1600m)
#3 – Otheroneson @ $2.50 – Bet @ Neds
Otheroneson continues to win after posting four wins and three second placings from just seven career starts.
The three-year-old gelding is unbeaten in two starts at the track and we like his chances of remaining unbeaten.
Punters get fair odds and he’s our top pick in the feature.
Race 8. (18:15) Tabtouch Better Your Bet BM72 (1600m)
#2 – Billy Ray – Bet @ Neds
Billy Ray has figured in the finish in 11 of his 15 career starts and the four-year-old should be tough to beat again.
The son of Sebring has won his last two starts at Belmont and three of four in the track in total. It’s an impressive record and one that can’t be overlooked.
The money is likely to come throughout the week.
Race 9. (18:50) Peninsula Dining Room BM66 (1000m)
#1 – Beads – Bet @ Neds
Beads comes off a win over Colossal at Belmont and we expect that form to stack up nicely.
The three-year-old son of Star Turn owns three wins and six placings from 12 starts, including two wins at Belmont.
Punters could get each-way odds on race day.
