Best From The West: Belmont – 30th July 2022

The metro season around the country ends with the Perth card on what should be a good betting program.

The Ngawyni Stakes is the feature but it's early in the day with only five runners so we'll avoid that.

Conceding that this 3yo filly now takes on the older horses but Flower In The Wind is just two days off needing to race in open class anyway.

She runs again over the middle distance but her Belmont Classic effort was so strong.

There appears more rain on the way so it will be heavy again and being by Sebring, that is only a positive, making it more of a slog.

It is hard to see her running a poor race and therefore gets a deserving win.

For a bit more value, State Of Power in Race 9 has been so consistent without getting that win on the board.

The filly has been so close just missing two weeks ago and over the 5 f, sitting forward is usually a good policy.

Bred to adore heavy ground, she had one go on it a year back and bolted in when leading.

Also critically she drops from 125lbs to 117lbs after the claim. That could be very important late in the day.
