Belmont horse racing tips
Race 1. (14:04) Free Entry to Belmont Maiden (1300m)
#9 – My Hidden Journey – Bet Now
My Hidden Journey has been a model of consistency this season, which includes four consecutive placings.
The John Doyle-trained four-year-old turned around some average form to start his career, but he now has three placings on this track.
It won’t be long before he breaks through and it could come on Saturday.
Race 2. (14:44) Amelia Park Plate (1200m)
#5 – Indigo Blue – Bet Now
Indigo Blue ran second on debut at Belmont as the favourite, and she could go one better this time around.
The Adam Durrant-trained filly was only a half-head behind the winner and she will be better for the experience.
She faces some nice types here but she carries only 54kg and that should see her go close.
Race 3. (15:19) Maiden (1300m)
#2 – Taimali – Bet Now
Tajmali looks like a nice type in the making and the four-year-old mare should be tough to beat in this race.
The daughter of Galah owns five wins and four placings from 13 starts, so her form stacks up nicely for this grade.
Look for short odds from bookmakers.
Race 4. (15:59) Schweppes Handicap (1000m)
#4 – Weaponson – Bet Now
Weaponson has notched four consecutive second placings and he deserves a winning turn. The four-year-old has two wins and five placings to his name, so he is consistent.
The son of Oratorio ran 2.5 lengths behind the highly-talented This’ll Testya last start at Belmont, and that is a top form guide.
We are expecting the form out of that race to stack up beautifully this season.
Race 5. (16:39) Morley Growers Market Handicap (1400m)
#2 – Last of the Line – Bet Now
Last of the Line scored wins at his first two starts before running third at Ascot last time out.
The son of Blackfrairs won by 3.3 lengths on debut before backing that up with a one-length victory at Ascot.
He has yet to race at Belmont, but the natural ability is there and he should go well at this level.
Race 6. (17:20) Byron Bay Lager Handicap (1400m)
#7 – Western Pride – Bet Now
Western Pride didn’t fire at Ascot last start, but she pulled up with a problem and she looked above average prior to that defeat.
The Durrant-trained mare won her first four starts, including a 1.5-length win at Belmont in June. She has good form lines, including a win over Coming Around, which has won in Melbourne.
The daughter of Animal Kingdom might need more ground, but she will carry support.
Race 7. (17:55) Nicopolis Stakes (1200m)
#2 – Money Matters – Bet Now
Money Matters is a quality type that has won seven from 12 starts, including three on this track.
The four-year-old son of Canford Cliffs has only been narrowly winning this season, but he knows where the post is, and that’s a good asset to have.
He is another high-class type from the Durrant stable, and we should see some money coming his way.
Race 8. (18:35) Peoplestart Handicap (1200m)
#6 – Manhattan Money – Bet Now
Manhattan Money has won her last two starts and she looks tough to beat here once again.
The five-year-old won at Kalgoorlie and although facing a rise in class here, she owns the best form coming into this race.
Race 9. (19:15) Crown Perth Handicap (2100m)
#6 – Bonneville Black – Bet Now
Bonneville Black is attempting to win three consecutive races after scoring by two lengths at Belmont last month.
The Fred Kersley-trained five-year-old has four wins from 15 starts, and despite rising in weight for this race, he is more than capable of winning again.
Expect each-way odds from bookmakers on race day.
