Belmont Tips May 22


Belmont Best Bet - Race 3 No. 3 Born To Try

While the daughter of Blackfriars wasn't able to salute first-up as favourite, she certainly didn't lose any fans in that 1400m effort, rattling off easily the fastest last 600m of the race.

Seven furlongs is too sharp for her now which was evident last prep when saluting at a mile before a runner-up over 2000m and from a low draw on Saturday, maps for a much more economical run in transit.

With 'The Wizard' engaged this Saturday, the bookies have opened up Born To Try a little short but with the form and figures of a few useful rivals, she should drift out a little more closer to the jump.


Belmont Value Bet - Race 5 No. 1 Puli

A proven weight carrier that is dropping to his pet trip of 1200m following an unusual first-up tilt at 1300m, he can give a huge sight against the short favourite who hasn't raced since last June.

Over the colder months in Western Australia, Puli appreciates getting his toe into the track a little more, especially at Belmont, a circuit in which he carried 61.5kg to victory last September on a Soft 6.

The four-year-old likes to sustain a strong gallop on the speed and with Universal Pleasure along with perhaps Recharger crossing from out wide, they may be able to open up a space on the other rivals, which will play into the hands of this gelding.


Belmont Next Best Bet - Race 6 No. 11 Real Grace

Following an April 27 trial which she was clearly in need of, this filly had a much better cleanout on May 10, sprinting away late from the talented What About Moi and it did suggest she was ready to strike fresh.

By I Am Invincible and out of the dual stakes winning dam, Real Charm, Real Grace won by big margins at stars two and three, the last of those at Belmont on a Soft 6 before two Ascot tilts last spring, having excuses in the first of those runs.

Resuming against her own age group at Handicap level which sees her carry just half a kilo over the minimum, she can settle midfield under William Pike before ideally showing her sharp turn-of-foot late.


Belmont Value Bet - Race 7 No. 7 Gunnago

A galloper that is used to carrying larger weights, he does look better placed on Saturday despite the rise in grade, as off his first two runs this campaign, carries just 54kg compared to the 59.5kg.

Gunnago found the line well for an eventual fourth-place finish fresh and via his April 24 attempt, was honest as always but just a little one-paced late when outsprinted late by fitter rivals.

Given he has drawn out with the claim, they may have to bite the bullet early and roll forward, but with the field perhaps opening up with a few speedy runners stepping to the mile, he may be able to slot in.
