Belmont Tips - September 28

Check back on Thursday to see our updated best bets.

Previous Tips:

The feature at Belmont is the Birthday Stakes and a number of classy performers are resuming. ACHERNAR STAR might be the best of the fresh horses and is good enough to take this out. The Simon Miller-trained galloper stepped out on three occasions in the autumn, winning two at Listed level and just missed out in the Pinjarra Classic (1300m) when resuming. In that race he pulled out three wide and looked the winner before just going down to Vital Silver. He gets in well under the set weights and penalties conditions of the race and should be able to find a spot in running from barrier 7. 

We close out with a 1MW over the 1200m trip and COLOURFUL CHOICE should be hard to beat. The Daniel Morton-trained galloper has won three of her eight career starts and resumed with a 5th at the track and trip on August 28. In that race she raced wide throughout and was a fraction unlucky. She made amends at her most recent start, powering to the line here a fortnight ago to overhaul Bel My Pago and Recharger. Se should improve further off that run and at her third run at her last preparation she won well at Ascot. The lightly race mare is compiling an impressive record and will be hard to beat. 

September 21

Race 7 at Belmont is a Rating 64+ and CRYPTIC LOVE can be a force to be reckoned with back over the 1000m. The consistent performer from the Doug Harrison yard was a winner here four starts ago and has had a bit of a luckless time of it since then, placing in two and missing out in another when held up at a vital time. She has drawn barrier 4 and gets the steer from Willy Pike, who jumps onto the four-year-old for the first time. The leading hoop will settle in a midfield spot and with the pace tipped to be on from the outset, his mount can go very close. 
Result (4th)

This looks to be a nice race for FORCEFUL in which to resume. The Grant & Alana Williams-trained galloper has won six of 13 and comes off a winning trial in the lead up. He won two of his past four before the break and is unbeaten at the track and distance with two wins from as many starts. At the start of his last campaign he got too far back when only managing to run 9th but was a winner when fresh at his campaign prior. The jockey of the moment, Jade McNaught, takes the ride and the 2kg claim brings her mount right into it. 
Result (4th)

September 14

Race 8 - 4:30PM FARNLEY STAKES (1400 METRES)
The Farnley Stakes pits together some handy gallopers up against one another at Listed level and the improver should be VARIATION, who stepped out recently in the Idyllic Prince Stakes (1300m), finishing runner-up to Great Again. In that race, the Simon Miller-trained galloper sat in 3rd position for most of the run and in what developed into a sprint home, he couldn't quite bridge the gap on the eventual winner. He enjoys a class edge on a number of the rivals he meets in this race and the fitness he picked up from that hitout should also play into his hands. At his last campaign he was a narrow runner-up when second up and his stats at this stage of previous preparations read very well. He will just need an ounce of luck from the wide gate to be able to take this out. 
Result (unplaced)

We close out with a RTG 70+ and STAGEMAN should be hard to beat. The consistent galloper has won two of his past three, with those victories coming over the 1200m at Belmont. At his last start he dropped down to the 1000m and finished runner-up behind Don't Fuss. He had earlier settled last in the field of five before peeling out wide at the top of the straight, surpassing all of his rivals, except for the leader, who was able to pinch a bit of a gap. That was his first run in seven weeks and he can go one better here. Jade McNaught takes the ride and claims the 2kg. If she can slot in from barrier 13 she can close the day out as a winner. 
Result (1st - $3.50)

September 7

We look no further that the opening race at Belmont and it is BLACK DUCATI that will be out to make it three from three. The four-year-old mare made her debut at Bunbury earlier this year and picked up a Soft win in a Maiden race. She returned at Belmont recently, taking out a Class One Handicap ahead of Flying Target and Speedy Miss. On that occasion she raced a tad greenly and panned out wide at the top of the straight before knuckling down and eventually climbing over the top of them at the business end. She should benefit from that outing and has drawn perfectly in barrier 2. Chris Parnham will look to camp the daughter of Blackfriars just behind the speed and his mount should be right in the thick of the action at the business end. 
Result (2nd - $1.60 to Place)

Race 3 at Belmont pits together a handy bunch of promising three-year-olds. RIO DEL MAR appears for the first time this spring and looms as the testing material. The Simon Miller-trained galloper debuted earlier this year with a runner-up performance at Ascot in the Supremacy Stakes (1000m) before doing his best work late when landing the prize in the Group 3 Gimcrack Stakes (1100m). He then tackled the Karrakatta Plate (1200) and could only manage 7th but had excuses as he pulled up with issues after that race. His form reads much better than the rivals that he meets here. A slight concern is his lack of race fitness as he has not raced for 22 weeks but he performed well in a recent trial and only has to be somewhere near his best to take this out. 
Result (2nd - $1.60 to Place)

August 31

One of the better races of the day at Belmont is the Idyllic Prince Stakes and GREAT AGAIN should be hard to beat. The seven-year-old absolutely thrives at this track, winning seven of nine, while finishing runner-up at the other two. He resumed with a soft win in the Belmont Newmarket (1200m) against a similar field recently and was just pipped at the track and distance prior to that. He is likely to settle in the first few and if Willy Pike is able to get a bit of a mid race breather on the seven-year-old the pair can go very close. 
Result (1st - $2.90)

I'm sticking with ZARATITE in the Apprentices Cup after the four-year-old made it three wins on the trot the last time he stepped out, which was at Belmont on August 17. The promising four-year-old has had seven starts for four wins and he travelled beautifully in his most recent of those before dashing away at the business end. He has drawn awkwardly in his quest to notch up another win but just needs even luck in running to add to his impressive record. 
Result (2nd - $1.50 to Place)

We close out with a Rating 70+ Handicap and it is FESTIVAL MISS that should be better suited out to the 1400m. The Grant and Alana Williams-trained galloper was an impressive winner over this distance two stats ago, sprinting away in the closing stages to defeat Cryptic Love but was never really in the hunt when dropping back to the 1000m at her subsequent start. A key to her chances will be the pace in the race and there looks to be enough speed ahead of her with Five Degrees and Sense Of Power among those that will push forward. She has drawn to get a cosy run and with Pike to steer she can go close. 
Result (3rd - $2.70 to Place)
