Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Wrote To Arataki comes up favourite and has good claims despite the wide draw. Rich Fortune has been around the mark this prep and will take beating. Sneaky Paige was a winner at big odds last start and can go on with things here. Penthouse was a good highway winner recently and the form has been franked since while the best version of Party For One would give this a shake.

Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Wrote To Arataki (9)

Good claims and won this race last year. Sticky gate but quality runner that looks well placed in this years edition.

2. Rich Fortune  (4)

Has been around the mark this prep and maps for favours from barrier 4. Will steers and is a very appealing price in this.

3. Sneaky Paige (10)

Surprise winner last start and usually has been around Wednesday grade company. Harder here but respect off the last start win.

4. Party For One (1)

Resumes and may want further but has a touch of class and is up to these. Watch the market.

5. Penthouse (6)

Good highway winner recently with the runner up going mighty close as our best bet last week since so the form is good. Can land up on speed which should suit with the rail out.

6. Vagrant (2)

Has won two in a row and looks suited here although does step up in grade and back in trip. Maps well and has claims.

7. A Little Deep (3)

Jumps in grade but has plenty of upside and maps for a kind run. Suited to this field and looks the right price.

8. California Surreal (8)

Can’t have.

9. Cute As (5)

Prefer others.

10. Naiconi (7)

Racing well and was a consistent operator last prep. Can resume here with a win and has been well tried in early markets. Big respect.
