Best From The West: Belmont – 17th August 2019

Nine more races at Belmont this week and maybe more rain on the way again in a wet winter.

Last week we went for Zaratite as the best but he didn't get a run so we're backing up this week.

This young horse has a future and has enjoyed the softer going this last few months.

He gets to 1 5⁄16 m now and the Rating 64+ grade seems perfect.

Sitting around midfield from the draw, William Pike will look to be gaining momentum from the 600m.

The son of Animal Kingdom should have enough fitness to withstand the near month between runs.

Back to earlier in the day where Excelestial tries to break her maiden in a three year old race.

She has had two runs and both were here over the 5 f. Now she gets another furlong which has to help.

Sitting on the limit weight and from a soft draw, she can settle a lot closer as she did three weeks back.

Being by Excelebration, she will want every bit of this and more so we can back her each way.


BET OF THE DAY: Race 3 #3 Zaratite @ $2.10

EACH WAY PLAY: Race 2 #7 Excelestial @ $5.00
