Our Belmont Horse Racing Tips for the weekend.

Perfect Jewel (Belmont Race 5 No. 7)
This Redoubte’s Choice mare won the Group 2 WA Guineas as a three-year-old, and is currently in great form winning three Group 3 races from her last 4 starts. She won the Group 3 Belmont Sprint by a narrow margin over 1400m on 30 May, then followed up with a 0.7 length win in the Group 3 Hyperion Stakes over 1600m at Belmont on 13 June.She is the in-form horse in the field and has a great chance to win another Group 3 race.


How to pick a winner

Each Way

Devoted Star (Belmont Race 8 No. 8):
This lightly-raced mare is first-up after a 15 week spell and has won twice when first-up. She missed the start by 6 lengths before working through the field to finish 3.5 lengths 7th over 1100m at Ascot on 29 February, then worked clear and ran on strongly out wide for 0.2, 1,3 lengths 3rd over 1200m at Ascot on 14 March. She looks to have more ability than many others in the field and looks like a solid each-way chance.


Best Lay

Dark Choice (Belmont Race 9 No. 3):
The early favourite in this 2100m is this Redoubte’s Choice mare to be ridden by W Pike. She was held up for most of the straight when 6,9 lengths 11th over 1800m at Ascot on 9 May and was never really tested, then she was slowly away and came from well back to run 3 lengths 5th over 2000m at Belmont on a soft track on 13 June. She has some good rivals here and tends to find trouble in her races so is more likely to place than win.
