Belmont horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:58) Tabtouch Westspeed 0MW (1000m)
#4 – Tajmali – Bet Now
The three-year-old filly owns four wins from 11 starts and three of those wins have come this preparation.
She’s a talented daughter of Galah that gets the services of William Pike and that’s going to drive her starting price down a touch.
She won’t be worried about the small field so put her on top.
Race 2. (14:37) Perth Racing at Home BM78 (1000m)
#4 – Condor Heroes – Bet Now
The five-year-old has looked well above average this preparation with two wins. The first came by a head and the next came by 4.3 lengths.
It was a dominant display after leading throughout and we’re expecting similar tactics this time around. He should be able to find a soft lead and the field of only six helps.
Expect bookmakers to have him firm in betting.
Race 3. (15:17) Gourmet Takeaway Plate (1000m)
#1 – Dunbar – Bet Now
Dunbar was sent out as the $1.25 favourite on debut and although it was a narrow margin, he got the job done.
The two-year-old by Vancouver settled on the pace and got the better of Nobellity late in the piece. The win holds him in good stead for this race and the education was important.
Pike sticks with him and that’s a good sign.
Race 4. (15:57) Amelia Park BM59 (1200m)
#2 – Windstorm – Bet Now
Windstorm is another quality type for Team Williams and he’s unbeaten after two starts. The son of Redoute’s Choice won by 1.5 lengths on this track before winning at Ascot.
He has since had a spell and he was primed with a trial win at Belmont. It bodes well and it’s another good ride for Pike.
Expect short odds with bookies.
Race 5. (16:34) Glenroy Chaff BM66 (1200m)
#10 – Sherpa Lass – Bet Now
The Daniel Morton-trained mare won her first four starts and although beaten since, she could turn that form around.
She wasn’t all that far away when running sixth at Pinjarra last start and not everything went right for her.
Drawing barrier five is ideal and each-way odds should be available.
Race 6. (17:10) Byron Bay Premium Lager 1MW (1600m)
#10 – San Crispino – Bet Now
The five-year-old mare is having her 50th start and it could be a time to celebrate. She ran second on this track last start, so there’s no reason why she can’t go one better.
She is yet to win on this track but the confidence is up and she was good enough to win in April. It bodes well and punters will get juicy odds.
Race 7. (17:40) Schweppes BM72 (1600m)
#10 – Festival Miss – Bet Now
Festival Miss is nearing a win after three consecutive placings. The four-year-old mare ran second at Ascot last start and her best form comes at Belmont.
She has had seven starts at Belmont for three wins and two placings. That form is tough to overlook and it gives William Pike another quality winning chance.
Drawing barrier 11 is tough but she has upside.
Race 8. (18:15) Iron Jack Belmont Sprint (1400m)
#8 – The Velvet King @ $4.20 – Bet Now
The Velvet King ran second behind Vega Magic last start and that’s red-hot form. He is a professional winner of seven from 17 races and he also has six placings.
His second-up record consists of two wins, so he won’t be needing the run and his class could shine through.
Barrier five is ideal and punters are getting value odds.
Race 9. (18:50) Crown Towers BM64 (2200m)
#1 – Divine Shadow – Bet Now
Divine Shadow is a capable gelding that finished third at Belmont last start and he should be able to go close here.
He is rarely too far away from the prize and getting the inside draw should bring him right into contention.
Expect a nice run at odds.
