Belmont 15/06/2019

Race 1

Set to be a lot of speed on the race with Miss Tycoon and Brave Contender looking to find the lead (based on past performance, though with a few maidens it is hard to tell if this will be the case). Going with Miss Tycoon, she’s proven on a soft track and has better sectionals than Brave Contender. To round out the top four, I’d go with Obstination. She’s a half to War Room and trialled well, including once on a soft track. Lee Newman and the Impressive Racing are in fine form. No Apology looks to have come back better this preparation.
1 – Miss Tycoon 
2 – Brave Contender
8 – Obstination
4 – No Apology 

Race 2

William Pike looked to have his pick of rides here, so going to his pick of Fairy Fast. Proven at the distance, won on a heavy track and down in the weights, which is all positives. She is however up in class which could be a concern. Double Bubble is four for four on a soft track which is a definite advantage and gets in well with the claim. Hard to ignore the form of Samizdat, with his turn of foot and having won on a soft track, though the 60kg is a worry and both of his wins have been at 1200. Catherine Wheel has placed in all four of her starts and can’t see why she won’t place again.
13 – Fairy Fast
1 – Double Bubble 
2 – Samizdat
8 – Catherine Wheel 

Race 3

Come Play with Me has the form over the other horses. The 61kg could be too much over this distance, but he is proven on the soft, so if he can handle the weight he should be winning. Salon Du Cheval has come up against Come Play with Me before and despite having Pike on board I can’t see him turning the tables. Noir De Rue loves to lead, so look out if leaders are winning the previous races. Diamond Tonique is down in weight, but never placed on a soft track.
1 – Come Play with Me  
10 – Salon Du Cheval 
8 – Noir De Rue 
7 – Diamond Tonique 

Race 4

Tough race to pick a top four, but I’ve gone with Stoicism on top. Good form backed up by an amazing turn of foot last start and Kirby is no stranger to riding him. Rebel Knight comes from a good family, but just hasn’t seemed to put it together yet, looking to see what he can do here. Hyperspace seems to run for Lucy, can he make it three wins in a row? Arnie’s Boy has been placed at every race at this distance and can handle the wet.
2 – Stoicism 
3 – Rebel Knight 
8 – Hyperspace 
7 – Arnie’s Boy<

Race 5

Not much to say about this race as it’s hard to see Galaxy Star losing this race. Great Shot should lead, while Gatting should be suited to the soft track. It was difficult to round out the top four but going with Battle Torque for some value and has done well previously at 1600. 
5 – Galaxy Star 
1 – Great Shot 
2 – Gatting
4 – Battle Torque 

Race 6 

It’s a very strong field and I’m hoping that Moschard can continue his winning streak, is up in class however. Glasgow Girl is also in good form at the moment and placed on all wet track runs. Lordhelpmerun has the class and ran well behind Flirtini last start, I wouldn’t be surprised if he won. Double Digit could surprise. 
9 – Moschard
10 – Glasgow Girl
5 – Lordhelpmerun
3 – Double Digit

Race 7

It was very hard to pick between State Attorney and City Circle. State Attorney has the advantage of the Pike and Mr Peters combination, while City Circle has run second to some impressive horses, including Flirtini. Pearls and Prawns is two for two first up and one for one on a wet track, but the weight is a concern. Finally French has won her previous two starts. 
11 – State Attorney 
15 – City Circle
3 – Pearls and Prawns 
2 – Finally French

Race 8

Ending with one of the hardest races of the day. Going with the cerise and white again in Stageman. Good form and he likes the rain, but the barrier is a worried. Black Sabbath is a real worry with form behind some really good horses. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him winning. Bold Successseems to prefer the shorter distances than last start, while having good form first up and on a soft track. TranquillaSunrise is a real outsider, with good form, so I’m interested to see how he goes. 
8 – Stageman
15 – Black Sabbath
11 – Bold Success
14 – Tranquilla Sunrise
