Our Belmont Horse Racing Tips for Wednesday’s meeting.
Smashing (Belmont Race 6 No. 8)
This four-year-old Playing God mare trained by Neville Parnham has one wins and four places from 12 starts. She boxed on steadily to the line for 7 lengths 7th on a heavy track over 1200m at Belmont on 21 July, then angled wide into the straight and ran on strongly to finish 3. 5 lengths 2nd over 1000m at Belmont on 4 August. The extra 200m is in her favour and she is the leading chance.
Juliette (Belmont Race 8 No. 10):
This seven-year-old Poet’s Voice mare has two wins and 13 places from 37 starts. She made good ground when she came from last on a heavy track to finish 3.6 lengths 3rd over 2100m at Belmont on 28 July, then kept coming gamely for 1.4 lengths 2nd over 2200m at Belmont on 11 August. On a seven day back-up she is a strong each-way chance here.
Agent Kensington (Belmont Race 5 No. 3):
This four-year-old So Secret mare is the early favourite in this Class 1 Handicap over 1000m. Resuming after 20 weeks she fought strongly for 0.5 length 2nd over 1100m at Northam on 15 July, then let down at the 200m and raced away for a 1.9 length win in a maiden over 1000m at Northam on 29 July. It’s a tough ask to expect back-to-back wins and I’m prepared to risk her here.
Our Moe Tips for Sunday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is true. The best bet is in the opening race of the day and looks well placed.

Hard to beat and the price is still worth it. $1.75 Best Each Way Virtucon (Moe Race
Our Launceston Horse Racing Tips for Sunday. The track is a Soft 5 and the rail is in the true position. The features are the Gold Sovereign Stakes (race 5) and Tasmanian Oaks over 2100m (race 7). As a general rule, runners who land in the front half of the field are suited at this track, with an advantage to those who find the inside lanes in the straight. Best Bet Wings Of Song (Launceston Race 7 No. 1) Made it 4 wins
Our Ballarat Tips for Sunday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is out 1 metre from the 400m to the winning post and true for the remainder. The drop in class is ideal for the best bet who looks very well placed. Best Bet Altermatum (Ballarat Race 2 No.7) Chased home Hayasugi last start and that form has been franked again today. Looks very well placed in this company and should get a dream run from the draw. $2.70 is over the odds in
Our Alice Springs Horse Racing Tips for Saturday's meeting. Key Comments The sand track is rated Good and the weather is fine. The rail is in the true position. Best Bet Don't Be Dramatic (Alice Springs Race 3 No. 2) He's raced 3 times for 2 wins and a 2nd. Last start he bolted in for a 4.3 length win over 1100m here and looks the good thing of the day. $1.55 Best
