Belmont Racing Tips For May 14 2020

Thursday sees the start of the Belmont season in Perth, which is the city's winter track and they'll play host to a seven race Provincial card.

The rail is in the true position and the track is in the Good 4 range.

Belmont Best Bet

Race 6 No. 2 Levitate

Whilst there's no prizes for finding him at the short quote, this talented three-year-old looks awfully hard to beat resuming in a Provincial Class 1.

Prepared by the Simon Miller stable who's striking at better than 31% when combining with "The Wizard" William Pike over the last twelve months, this gelding could've easily won all three of his first race runs.

Levitate covered a stack of ground when narrowly beaten on debut before breaking through in style on November 13 and put a good space on Beffunjar in the process, who won his next three outings which included a victory over the very handy Sanabreanna.

Resuming off a solid trial here on April 28 and versus mostly limited opposition, ability should see Levitate getting a fresh kill as the best bet at Belmont on Thursday.

Belmont Next Best Bet

Race 7 No. 6 Deputano

A lot of these more seasoned runners don't win out of turn hence this lightly-raced filly from the in-form Lindsay Smith camp can pounce in the last.

By the dual American group one winner Verrazano and out of a half sister to Montoya's Secret (group one winner) and Delago's Secret (group two winner), the breeding suggests that Deputano should eat up this 2200m staying journey.

After belting Mr Kunafa (won his next two in town) on February 19, she was sent for a little spell and her last two closing efforts for second and third have indicated she isn't far away.

Deputano has drawn out but she does have versatility to offset that alley and with even luck, can bring up win number three as one of the more progressive runners in this field.
