Best From The West: Belmont – 14th May 2022

We arrive at the official Belmont season with Saturday racing the go for many months.

And in doing so we arrive head first into G3 action with the running of the Roma Cup – a time honoured sprint in Perth won recently by the likes of Vega Magic, Luckygray, Magnifisio, El Presidente and Modem.

It brings together a good field of sprinters including 9 of the 11 who went around in the Northam Stakes where Elite Street charged over the top of them.

No doubt he will be hard to beat but we did like the run of Red Can Man who took up a position and was forced to do all the chasing of the fast paced leader.

Here is a horse who was placed at Caulfield at G2 level in the Spring over 7 f so the extra 0 will only help.

If he can just get a little march on the fav before the corner, he could be tougher to get by and we're getting $6 each way to find out.

Earlier in the day the best comes up as Galactic Storm goes third up over the 1400m.

The 3yo ran into a good horse in Pat's Got Sass three weeks back and just failed to get up.

He's fitter now, draws nicely once more and can sit just off the pace.

There will be competition in this 3yo affair but he's a horse on the up and one that can carry weight.


BET OF THE DAY: Race 5 #1 Galactic Storm @ $4.80

EACH WAY PLAY: Race 8 #4 Red Can Man @ $6.00
