Belmont Racing Tips For May 21 2020

Thursday sees the second meeting for the Belmont season in Perth, which is the city's winter track and they'll play host to a nine race Provincial card.

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


Belmont Value Bet - Race 3 No. 5 The Witch Doctor

Certainly have to take on trust given the long spell, however on ability and prior exposed form, the reward may outweigh the risk here.

A daughter of Danehill Express, she won over the short course at Narrogin when resuming early in 2019 (put two and a half lengths on Willow River who's since won five races) before tackling useful company in town.

Whilst she didn't win again, The Witch Doctor was very competitive around genuine city class gallopers and multiple winners in town throughout the rest of that campaign.

Resuming with a second placed trial effort in the fastest 1000m heat here on May 11 in a handy field, The Witch Doctor returns in a weak race and the betting late could be interesting.


Belmont Best Bet - Race 7 No. 7 Roman Flirt

The step up in trip worked wonders for this four-year-old who broke through for a well deserved win as a short favourite at Bunbury on May 3.

Whilst it's always a challenge stepping up from maiden company, it doesn't take long to work out that this is a very thin event and the prior form around Tollman along with a few others, is good enough to handle this.

There has also been a runner to come out of that Bunbury maiden and win with Interstate defeating I Hope You Dance recently, another galloper that's been thereabouts of late.

The Roman Flirt engagement looks the stronger of only two William Pike rides on this program and with upside still there, she's well placed as the best bet on the Belmont card.


Belmont Roughie - Race 8 No. 5 Mr Undercover

Without necessarily doing a whole lot, this gelding has been ticking over okay in three efforts so far this preparation.

Now under the care of the Glenn McTaggart yard, he found the six furlongs a little slick fresh off a big spell before getting back and running home fairly via his last two runs, which have both been over 1400m.

In a leader dominated race, Mr Undercover was about the only opponent making any sort of impression from off the speed on May 6 in another outing that suggested he was searching for a little more ground now.

He's no world beater but fit and finding something a little easier now, Mr Undercover is in the each way calculations here with a shade more improvement expected.
