Greg’s Belmont Preview Posted on August 26, 2016August 30, 2016 | Posted by Greg Hooper RACE 1 KEEP THE FLAME was heavily supported in betting at Pinjarra and she ran a terrific race after having to settle back and wide from her wide gate and circle the field. She’s drawn to get a much softer run and the inform Jarrad Noske retains the ride. LONE SAILOR just missed on debut. He handled the wet track on that occasion and looks the main danger. PEIRIAN ran well first-up. The 1000m to 1300m is the query. THREE OH THREE should settle in the first half and can whack into the placings. Numbers – 15 – 8 – 4 – 3 Suggested Bet – Keep The Flame Alive save Lone Sailor RACE 2 POUNAMU should beat these. He was a moral beaten first-up and second-up last campaign he produced his best effort all preparation. With clear room he zaps them. FLYING ROAR looks the leader again. If he gets it soft he’ll give plenty of cheek. COUGAR NIGHTS is the big class dropper and Pike retains the mount. STOCKS loves the sting out. Numbers – 7 – 6 – 5 – 1 Suggested Bet – Pounamu win RACE 3 DON’TGETCAUGHT looks very close to another win. He beat all bar the smart Material Man at his most recent outing. READY TO FIRE will get a very soft trip along the fence and Lucy Wwrick jumps back aboard. DUST ME OFF has found form. He’ll lead or breeze and has the services of an exceptionally talented staying jockey. VERDELLO BLUE is always a chance to pinch it from in front in these winter staying events. Numbers – 1 – 7 – 4 – 3 Suggested Bet – Don’tgetcaught and Ready To Fire RACE 4 FIRST AMONG EQUALS is chasing a hat trick of feature wins. He should get another lovely run from a good draw and Paul Harvey can get him over the line again. RED ORA raced flat first-up however his trainer made it known subsequently he was a bit behind fitness wise. Pike goes back on and he appears the clear danger. ROCK MAGIC has given his all this preparation buy suspect he’ll find First Among Equals too strong again. PROCEEDWITHCAUTION is loaded with talent and is not hopeless. Numbers – 3 – 7 – 2 – 9 Suggested Bet – First Among Equals win RACE 5 Toughest race of the day. HELLO PARIS is on the quick back-up. She was never a chance last week after getting a mile back and coming wide approaching the straight. Glenn Smith back on is a positive and she can improve sharply. ALL TOO MUCH was nailed in the shadows last in the same race. He should box seat. FOREVER DIAMONDS has had four weeks away since an eye-catching first-up run. BAYELLA has the 60.5kg to lump however she improved sharply last start and has strong wet track form. Numbers – 9 – 10 – 15 – 1 Suggested Bet – Hello Paris win RACE 6 VOLKOFF is the best horse in this race. The query is whether she can produce her best at Belmont Park where he record is poor. She has trialled well and happy to go her way. RECOILED cost himself a chance at victory last start when he missed the kick. If he jumps well and gets on top of the speed he goes close. CLOBBERETTA will get a lovely run on the fence and Pike goes on. LOCKROY can improve with the blinkers going on. Numbers – 2 – 8 – 4 – 7 Suggested Bet – Volkoff win RACE 7 THE FORGOTTEN ONE was something beaten at his most recent start. If he gets clear room and repeats that effort he goes very close. The stable mate BERGIO was given no chance in running last start when he settled at the rear in a slowly run race at Pinjarra. He’s searching for the mile now. FALCON CREST looks a different horse since resuming from a spell for the Williams team. BARAKI BEATS has claims if he can begin well and lead. Numbers – 5 – 6 – 2 – 1 Suggested Bet – The Forgotten One and Bergio QUADDIE RACE 4 – 3, 7 RACE 5 – 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 10, 15 RACE 6 – 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8 RACE 7 – 1, 2, 5, 6 Bet Now!
