Belmont Tips August 5


Belmont Best Bet - Race 5 No. 1 Ohbeeh

This four-year-old saluted as our best bet on the July 22 program here and staying at the same weight for an event that isn't all that much harder, he can go on with it.

As was expected, he improved off a July 1 performance which had him peaking a long way out before whacking away honestly and apprentice Chloe Azzopardi rated him to perfection before sprinting away for an easy victory last start.

He draws much kinder this time around in barrier four, so he won't have to work as much early to find the front and the drop from 1300m to 1200m is minor in a field that does lack that early pressure.

Ohbeeh still has some upside being only third-up from a spell now and making his own luck on the speed again, he's well placed to continue his winning ways as the best bet at Belmont.


Belmont Value Bet - Race 6 No. 6 War Class

The wide alley is the obvious knock but stepping up to the 1700m off a strong second-up effort over seven furlongs, he does look ready to produce.

Brodie Kirby and Steve Wolfe team up on this son of War Chant with this trainer and jockey combination recording 25 wins over the last 12 months at a strike rate of 21.2%.

He was hard to miss late via his last attempt where after settling at the rear, was produced in the straight and whilst he ultimately spotted them too big a start over that journey, the last 100m was particularly impressive.

Coming back in grade now to a Class 3 and seemingly not far off a peak performance, War Class has found his right race and is a leading each-way with a pinch of luck from the akward draw.


Belmont Roughie - Race 8 No. 10 Melody's Secret

This mare has been ticking over fairly in two runs this campaign and she is a galloper does take a few runs to hit her straps.

By So Secret and out of a full sister to two stakes-winners, Melody's Secret was withing a length and a half of the winner when resuming with a fourth on July 8 when she was back and against a leader-dominated affair.

Although the losing margin was longer second-up on July 22, she was again fair through the line late when spotting them a big start in what was the slickest five-furlong event of that program.

There looks to be a stack of speed in this line-up and dropping 3.5kg in the weights off that last run, Melody's Secret is an each-way hope in the last with hopefully a slightly more positive ride from a kinder draw.
