Best From The West: Belmont – 18th September 2021

Another weekend of small fields on the whole in Perth but let’s be honest they are concentrating on a bigger event the weekend after this one.

There might be a bit of weather about again which could make things tricky.

The feature race of the day is the Nicopolis Stakes and we'll take a horse in red hot form with Iseered Iseered.

This 4yo has a great overall record and returned from a four month break with a win over the 5 f here.

He then stepped up to a harder race a fortnight later and held on strongly again over the same trip.

Knowing he will need to run the 6 f out, wondering if they might take sit as they did before over 5 1⁄2 f and he won there as well.

He'll handle any type of surface that eventuates but we are getting a nice price about a winner in a race where others have not been doing so.

We'll take another Paul Harvey mount in the last as Sunnysilk resumes over the short course.

This mare had a top Autumn/Winter prep with multiple wins over this 1000m.

She draws very nicely again to get a sweet run and in an open race, we can suggest she is a good each way gamble.

Remember she is yet to miss a place first has four wins over this journey, has a  good Belmont record and should have no trouble on Good/Soft going.
