Our Belmont Horse Racing Tips for the weekend.

Showmanship (Belmont Race 3 No. 6)
After winning 3 of his 4 starts, all at this track, this four-year-old gelding is an odds-on favourite in this 1400m handicap. He resumed after 47 weeks for a 0.4 length win over 1200m at Belmont on 23 May where he had the best final 400m of the meeting, then charged away for a 4.9 length win over 1400m a Belmont on 6 June. It is hard to see anything else in this race beating him.


How to pick a winner

Each Way

We’ve Got Dreams (Belmont Race 9 No. 10):
This Universal Ruler filly has 5 wins and a place from 9 starts, and 4 of those wins have been over this distance. She resumed after 19 weeks for a 0.5 length win over 1000m at Ascot on 16 May, then played up at the gates but still won by 1.4 lengths over 1000m at Belmont on 6 June. She likes to lead and loks a good each-way chance in this race.


Best Lay

Massimo (Belmont Race 9 No. 3):
This three-year-old gelding is the early favourite in this tricky race but he has been favourite at two of his last three races and he has ran second at his last three starts making him a bookies pal. There are several good chances in the race and I suspect he may be placing again rather than winning.
