Greg’s Belmont Preview Posted on July 29, 2016August 1, 2016 | Posted by Greg Hooper Greg Hooper’s Preview RACE 1 Terrific start to the program with some nice two-year-olds clashing. THE CELT was edged out by a smart one when resuming over 1200m. He can find the breeze in this and be hard to run down. SPANGLED IMPACT is a very talented filly who resumes. She has measured up in all the bets two-year-old races of the season. DAINTY TESS excels at this trip. ONE SHOR has trialled very well. Numbers – 2 – 3 – 1 – 6 Suggested Bet – The Celt win RACE 2 CONSEATED should be able to hop straight to the front from gate 1 and prove hard to catch again. DENDEE is the class mare of the race. From gate 3 she will be looking to settle a bit closer than her usual pattern. FOEVER DIAMONDS has had the blinkers added for her return. She has a big finish when on song. UNIVERSAL MOON was solid last week and should get a lovely run from a good draw. Numbers – 3 – 1 – 8 – 5 Suggested Bet – Conseated and Dendee RACE 3 MAJINIKA was a strong first-up winner in midweek grade. This race contains a bit more depth however he improves off that run and can go close again. GRANLARADO has had a freshen-up and drops back to his preferred distance of 1200m. If he steps away well and uses his gate he can win. TRANQUILLA SUNRISE sits on the speed and has claims. MAX ALMIGHTY will likely go back from his wide gate and be attacking the line with gusto late. Numbers – 4 – 3 – 5 – 1 Suggested Bet – Majinika win RACE 4 DON’TGETCAUGHT looks ready to attack a staying journey and he has drawn to get the run of the race from gate 1. PRESENT ARMS failed on the wet track last start. His prior form was strong. DRIVE WEST showed glimpses of a return to form last week. If he reproduces that effort he can win. VERDELLO BLUE leads and gives a sight. Numbers – 3 – 11 – 1 – 9 Suggested Bet – Don’tgetcaught win RACE 5 MY GREEK BOY should box seat from gate 1 and if Shaun McGruddy can get him into clear room approaching the straight he’ll take a stack of beating. DUCHA ZACHISTKI will get a lovely from a good draw and finish strongly. ELLORA MAY has drawn the car park. If he can work over and not burn too much early fuel she has claims. BLACKWOOD is a classy filly resuming. Numbers – 6 – 11 – 12 – 2 Suggested Bet – My Greek Boy win RACE 6 BLACK DYNAMITE has returned to racing in terrific form this preparation winning both his starts over 1000m. He rises in trip however he gets all the favours from a good draw and can make it a winning hat trick. IT’S IT was a little disappointing last week. He should get it his own way in front this time and prove the one to run down. DJANGO put in an eye catching effort when resuming from a spell for his new trainer Alan Mathews. He’ll likely get off the speed and work home strongly again. SAKER is capable of pulling out a strong fresh performance. Numbers – 1 – 6 – 10 – 3 Suggested Bet – It’s It save Black Dynamite RACE 7 RED ORA is a classy four-year-old who resumes without a trial. From gate 3 Jason Brown will be able to position him right on the speed and dominate the race. FIRST AMONG EQUALS flies fresh and flies at this track. He will go very close despite the outside draw. MALIBU STYLE is racing well and looks the other main player. ZUCCHEROS is capable of anything on his day. Numbers – 3 – 2 – 9 – 12 Suggested Bet – Red Ora save First Among Equals RACE 8 MATERIAL MAN should relish the 1600m and only needs some luck from an awkward draw to be hard to beat. BARAKI BEATS was terrific in defeat last week where he missed the kick, settled rearward and attacked the line. Ryan Hill back on is a big plus. BONNY ZARA didn’t appreciate the heavy track last start. She can improve sharply. MOSSERATTI will get a lovely run from a good draw. Numbers – 5 – 4 – 1 – 8 Suggested Bet – Material Man and Baraki Beats QUADDIE RACE 5 – 1, 2, 5, 6, 11, 12, 19 RACE 6 – 1, 6 RACE 7 – 2, 3, 9 RACE 8 – 1, 4, 5, 8 Bet Now!
