Belmont Tips August 18


Belmont Best Bet - Race 3 No. 1 Defending

The combination of Kristy Bennett and the Daniel & Ben Pearce stable went close on Saturday with Don't Fuss and Speedy Miss, while they get every chance to record a win on Wednesday with this three-year-old who is well placed back to midweek Maiden level.

Defending caught the eye on debut back in March when making ground behind a smart Pat's Got Sass (Group placed via her next two starts) and tipped out following that run, resumed with a brave second to The Front Bar on August 7, who came from the clouds late.

The son of Oratorio was the sole survivor of the on-speed brigade and it still took a hard fit winner who was coming off a Saturday victory to roll him by a pimple, so with any improvement second-up from a low draw, he should take some beating here.


Belmont Value Bet - Race 6 No. 5 The White Witch

While she goes up 1.5kg off a plain fresh performance, this mare was in an impossible position on August 4 as a well-supported $5 chance, spotting them a big start and then she failed to let down late first-up on a soft track.

Given the July 19 trial on a Heavy 8 was also average despite coming third, the four-year-old may just simply not handle a wet track, so ideally with Belmont remaining in the Good 4 range for August 18, she could be value coming back against her own sex.

A galloper that showed some potential last year (well backed to the WA Sires' at just start two), The White Witch does come back a shade to 1200m and from a better draw, gets the services of Patrick Carberry, who was aboard for her Maiden victory last spring,


Belmont Next Best Bet - Race 9 No. 3 Thrilled

This seven-year-old is admittedly a while between drinks, although to be fair his record before going to Hong Kong was fine, winning three of his last four outings when campaigning for Godolphin prior to being sold and he finds a very weak race here.

Brock Lewthwaite now prepares Thrilled who should have confidence from a good return effort at Pinjarra where there was no intent with a 62.5kg impost, and now William Pike is engaged for this second-up tilt, who jumps off the stable mate (Pearls and Prawns) to ride.

Peaking late in that August 5 run at Pinjarra which suggests there's more to come, this gelding improved off a worse fresh run back in March to defeat all bar Tommy Blue over this distance, a Stakes placed galloper that is a little classier than this lot.
