The Group Three Strickland Stakes features on the nine race Belmont card from the west this Saturday where the rail is in the 2m position.

A big weather watch is advised in Perth with rain expected on Friday and Saturday on what is currently a Soft 5 surface.


Belmont Best Bet - Race 5 No. 7 Perfect Jewel

Whilst she's not the double figure quote here in the Group Three Strickland Stakes as she's been in her two prior wins, I'm struggling to see what turns it around on her in this field off them victories.

A well bred daughter of Redoute's Choice and racing in the famous cerise and white colors of Bob Peters, she proved the Belmont Sprint upset was no fluke by nailing The Velvet King yet again in the Hyperion.

Another big plus is these wet tracks she keeps finding in the west and from barrier eight under Patrick Carberry, he'll go back and look to launch late again.

Versus the same opposition and at the same weight scale, it's pure speculation on current form to try and get Perfect Jewel rolled as the best bet at Belmont this Saturday.


Belmont Value Bet - Race 7 No. 11 Night Voyage

It was hard to miss his big second-up run here last week when eventually threading a passage late and launching home for an eventual fifth-placed finish.

Prepared by the Martin Allan stable, this gelding has a good record on this Belmont circuit and with 10 top three finishes on soft tracks from 13 attempts, the conditions shouldn't be an issue.

Night Voyage is technically up in grade a little but drops 3.5kg for his trouble and with a senior hoop in Chris Parnham engaged this week, he can lob a little handier from barrier five.

This race does appear to fall away a little after the short favourite Essential Spice who'll have to handle these testing conditions fresh and on an each way basis, Night Voyage can be in the mix.


Belmont Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 3 Silkinize

With a pair of victories and some strong form in other outings, this three-year-old showed good ability over the back end of 2019.

By Patronize and out of a half-sister to the dual stakes-winning Casper Cowboy, Silikinize was last seen as a beaten $5 chance behind the very talented Laverrod in December before being tipped out.

The unknown is the wet ground (I suspect he'd be much shorter here if was firmer) but he was the pick of those behind Profit Street in a recent Lark Hill heat on soft going, a hit-out that indicated he was ready to fire fresh.

This line-up certainly isn't littered with any world beaters and as potentially the class galloper of this field already, Silkinize is well placed to keep his perfect first-up record intact.

Perfect Jewel is the logical selection and clearly the one to beat off current form for the Strickland Stakes feature.
