Saturday racing in Perth remains at Belmont this weekend, with the feature race being the Listed Beaufine Stakes (1000m). The weather is overcast, the track is soft (6) and the rail is out nine metres for the entire circuit.
Race One (14:43) : Belmont Bonanza Plate 1200m:
Back Me: 1 The Celt (Bet Now: $2.40) is a talented gelding that is first up here. He last raced in the WA Magic Millions when closing off well behind The River, one of the better youngsters in the state. No trials, but looks to have quality and should take some beating.
Big Danger: 2 Invincible Mode (Bet Now: $3.40) resumed over 1000m here a fortnight back where he sat outside the speed and fought on when second to Dainty Tess, another talented youngster. Should take good improvement off that and looms as one of the hardest to beat.
Roughie: 9 Swiftly (Bet Now: $12.00) resumed in that Dainty Tess also and her effort was pretty good considering she was back in the run in a race dominated by those near the speed. If she can somehow sit closer from the gate, she’ll go close.
Race Two (15:23) : Amelia Park Lamb Handicap 1000m:
Back Me: 7 War Jeune (Bet Now: $8.00) resumed over this track/distance three weeks back and gee he was very sharp in getting the job done, showing signs of horse capable of performing at blacktype level. Just needs to overcome the tricky draw to take care of these.
Big Danger: 1 Bombs Away (Bet Now: $10.00) ran over this track/distance last Wednesday where he sat last in the run and stormed home when a close up third to Stable Secret. Has proven well in Saturday grade before and outside the top tip, this isn’t a strong race.
Roughie: 3 Glitterbell (Bet Now: $16.00) is a talented filly that is first up here. She ran very well during the Summer/Autumn in some quality races. Runs very well fresh and has a touch of class.
Race Three (16:03) : Young Membership 2016/17 Handicap (72+) 1200m:
Back Me: 7 Spin Da Wheels (Bet Now: $9.50) looks the value here. He ran over 1400m here last Saturday where he sat on speed and faded late behind Socially Unique. Back to 1200m looks ideal and really interesting to note that Pike steers.
Big Danger: 2 Gigante (Bet Now: $2.40) ran over this track/distance two weeks back where he had the charmed run behind the tempo and stuck on well behind a potential star in Vega Magic. Loves a track with give in it and draws again to get a sweet trip.
Roughie: 9 Grey Enigma (Bet Now: $5.50) ran in the Socially Unique race last Saturday where he tried his heart out but couldn’t quite get the job done and had to settle for a close up second. He is racing in grand order this prep but is finding it hard to win. Must for exotics.
Race Four (16:39) : Melbourne Cup Tour Dinner August 9 Handicap 1400m:
Back Me: 5 Astronomite (Bet Now: $2.80) looks one of the better bets on the program. This Williams/Pike runner ran over 1200m at the midweeks here last week and was simply dominant, albeit in a much easier race. Has upside and though rising in depth, there is a bit to like about this bloke.
Big Danger: 2 Fremond (Bet Now: $10.00) has been given a four week let up since running fourth to Uptown Funk. Runner up was Beaucount, who has since gone on at Stakes level. Bred to swim, so a track with moisture will really suit him and up to 1400m is ideal.
Roughie: 1 The Blue Nipper (Bet Now: $19.00) resumed over 1300m here a fortnight back and was a real eye catcher I thought behind My Greek Boy after getting slightly held up in the straight. He has enormous upside and a touch of class.
Race Five (17:15) : Corporate Membership 2016/17 Handicap (1MW) 1650m:
Back Me: 4 Royal Supreme (Bet Now: $6.00) looks the clear way to go. The three year old resumed at Pinjarra a tick over three weeks back and chased strongly when third to Tranquilla Sunrise. Has enormous upside and is in the right stable.
Big Danger: 8 Mulga (Bet Now: $4.80) resumed over 1300m here a couple of weeks back at the midweeks back and closed off well late when third to Ellora May. Has upside and though drawn wide, looks a threat.
Roughie: 9 Paddy’s Flat (Bet Now: $19.00) ran at the midweeks here last Wednesday over 1700m and was very good in defeat after racing wide no cover for the trip. Just needs normal luck here to be a definite contender.
Race Six (17:50) : Tabtouch Handicap (72+) 1650m:
Back Me: 9 Infathuated (Bet Now: $4.40) ran third behind Bonny Zara where she controlled the tempo from the front and did give a good kick but was grabbed late. Should lead here and with a cheaper sectional, she will take some beating.
Big Danger: 6 Bonny Zara (Bet Now: $4.40) is in ripping form this time in. She ran over the mile here a fortnight back and was given a smart ride, sitting off the tempo before eventually getting clear and finishing off best. She has the runs on the board and should go close.
Roughie: 12 Moonsearch (Bet Now: $13.00) ran fifth in the Bonny Zara race and she looked a little one paced to the line. She is much better than that, and given she is down in the weights, I think she could be a sharp improver.
Race Seven (18:25) : Beaufine Stakes 1000m:
Back Me: 8 Military Reign (Bet Now: $2.30) is a sharp filly who has had four weeks off since running a game second to Pininci over 1200m here. Back to 1000m is ideal, Pike jumps on and down in the weights. Hard to beat.
Big Danger: 10 Rebel King (Bet Now: $15.00) is a stablemate of Military Reign who ran over 1300m here a fortnight back when a gallant fourth to Malibu Style. Back to 1000m will be no issue for him here, he’s hard fit and this isn’t the strongest stakes race going around.
Roughie: 4 Dueton (Bet Now: $21.00) has been given a three week let up since running fifth to Cool Passion at this track/distance. He was ridden on speed that day, and I think ridden with cover is more his go. If that eventuates, he is a contender.
Race Eight (19:00): Gold Membership 2016/17 Handicap (66+) 2100m:
Back Me: 8 Present Arms (Bet Now: $10.00) ran over 2100m here two weeks back and was a real eye catcher late when third to My Magic Miss. He was only third up there, so he has enormous upside and should prove tough to hold out.
Big Danger: 3 The Flirt (Bet Now: $4.60) has been given a four week let up since running a close up third to Dark Musket over 2200m here. Race has turned out to be a pretty handy form reference. The little break should do him no harm and he looks hard to beat.
Roughie: 15 Toppa Dawozza (Bet Now: $21.00) is an absolute nightmare to follow. I was quite keen on him at a price two weeks back here but he let me down badly after receiving every chance behind the speed. Drawn out so he won’t be boxed in…dear me. One more chance.
