Belmont Park Tips 03/08/2022

BEST BET 🏆

Race 2 No. 1 FIRST LAW 

This horse has been building into the preparation nicely and showed that he enjoys wet conditions last start. It’ll be even wetter today which should suit and the stable takes weight off his back by using apprentice Luke Campbell. Expecting him to be very hard to hold out. Small watch on #7 Looks Like Magic at $21. If it was over 1200m I’d be tipping each-way, this horse improved dramatically in wet conditions this time last year. 

NEXT BEST 🥈

Race 5 No. 2 GINGER BAKER

Hard horse to catch! It’s been 385 days since his last win but I’m hoping today can be the day. Historically, he doesn’t run huge races first-up, but with Chris Parnham in the saddle, a nice draw and the heavy conditions which he races so well on, I think today can be the day. 

VALUE BET 💰

Race 4 No. 8 WISE CRACKER 

This is a tough race for Wise Cracker, but again, I’m targeting wet trackers. Two runs on a heavy for a first and a second, nine runs on a soft for six top three finishes, this horse has only ever won or placed if it’s wet. Drawn nicely, can park just off them and then hopefully wind up down the straight at each-way odds.
