Our Belmont Horse Racing Tips for the weekend.

Showmanship (Belmont Race 4 No. 8)
With 4 wins from 5 starts this gelding has only raced at this track and knows it well. He charged away for a 4.92 length win over 1400m here on 6 June, then had an easy 1.8 length win over 1400m here on 20 June. He will be ridden by William Pike again and is as close as you can get to a good thing.


How to pick a winner

Each Way

Speedy Miss (Belmont Race 5 No. 3)
This Demerit mare has a good record at this track and distance, and has proven herself on soft going. She held on well for a narrow win over 1400m at Belmont on 3 June, then ran on strongly for a 1.35 length win over 1400m at Northam on a soft track on 18 June. She is well placed here and is good value each-way.


Best Lay

Bumper Humper (Belmont Race 3 No. 1)
Half the field in this two-year-old race have not started before, and this filly is one of only two runners who have notched up a win so far. She won her debut in October then resumed for 2.2 lengths 4th over 1000m at Belmont on 13 June, then was 2.5 lengths 4th over 1000m at Belmont on 27 June. Some of the others are nicely bred and some have been trialling well, so this is a race that has many chances.
