Best From The West: Belmont – 13th July 2019

We might get a weekend of no rain in Perth which does seem a while ago that that was the case.

Therefore it is back onto a good track and with that in mind going to give Free Trade another go in Race 6.

This four year old has done little wrong in his career to date and was close up last time on soft going.

Stageman beat him home in that but while he goes up 7lbs, Free Trade only goes up 3lbs here.

There was around ½ length between them so now luck in running is a key and he can sit forward off the draw. If they back Pike again we'll do better than the odds at present.

Onto the following race and The Velvet King is a horse who always runs you a race.

He took on the older horses two weeks ago and won with some style. A tick-over trial has ensued this week too.

The three year old handles all the conditions and puts himself into the race from the jump.

A wide gate is not a bad thing for a leader if he crosses quickly. It might just mean we also get a roll of the board extra.


BET OF THE DAY (1): Race 6 #10 Free Trade @ $3.00

BET OF THE DAY (2): Race 7 #3 The Velvet King @ $2.10
