Our Belmont Horse Racing Tips for Thursday’s meeting.
War Warrior (Belmont Race 6 No. 2)
This four-year-old War Chant horse trained by Danial Morton has a win and two places from four starts. He built momentum into the straight and caught and passed the leader at the 100m for a length win in a maiden over 1400m at Ascot on 28 April, then led but tired late for 1.5 lengths 4th over 1400m at Ascot on 12 May. Resumes from a 25 week spell and placed in a recent trial. Ready to win first-up.
Dance Session (Belmont Race 1 No.8):
This three-year-old Sessions filly trained by Jim Taylor has one place from three starts. She was a keen leader before tiring at the 100m and being overhauled for 1.2 lengths 3rd over 1000m at Northam on 3 October, then led into the straight and tired for 2.4 lengths 4th over 1000m at Northam on 14 October. Should be fitter now, has good early speed and is worth an each-way bet.
Belle’s Fantasy (Belmont Race 8 No. 8):
This three-year-old Dream Ahead filly trained by David Harrison is the early favourite in this Class 1 Handicap over 1200m. She led all the way for a 0.6 length win over 1300m at Northam on 14 October, then led into the straight until overtaken at the 100m and finishing 1.9 lengths 2nd over 1300m at Northam on 24 October. Has stronger opposition here and offers no value.
Our Geelong Horse Racing Tips for Friday's meeting. Best Bets Martha Lavinia (Geelong Race 4 No. 11) Building up to a win and strikes the perfect opportunity to get one on the board. Scratched from a race today and saved for this. Maps well and should take some holding out in this race. $5.50 Each Way Aquila Volare (Geelong Race 6 No. 1) Unlucky last start and can atone here with John Allen in the saddle. Has always shown good promise to date
Our Cranbourne Horse Racing Tips for Thursday's meeting. Best Bets Tycoon Beau (Cranbourne Race 6 No. 8) Hard to not like the run of Tycoon Beau last start who circled the field and couldn't quite run don Chardon Burj who goes around at Doomben on Saturday in a stakes race so the form looks excellent. With even luck it will be very hard to hold out from the tricky draw and looks nicely weighted despite the rise in grade. $6.00 Each Way
Best Bets Our Rosehill Horse Racing Tips for the weekend. The feature event is the Lord Mayors Cup (Race 7). Quintello (Rosehill Race 9 No. 13) With four wins and three places from eight starts, this mare from the Maher/Eustace stable has above average ability. She resumed from a spell with a 4 length win over 1200m at Mornington on 26 March, then chased hard to find the front and raced clear for a 2.9 length win on heavy going over 1400m at Randwick on 23 April.
Best Bets Our Flemington Horse Racing Tips for Saturday's meeting. The feature event is the Straight Six (race 7). Tuvalu (Flemington Race 8 No. 13) Tuvalu is a talented four year old gelding who was far too good first up on his home track at Warrnambool. His I’m Thunderstruck form from last prep reads very well for a race like this and I love that he rolls forward and makes his own luck up on speed. $2.70 Each Way Coolth (Flemington
