Best From The West: Belmont – 27th August 2022

The Idyllic Prince Stakes is the main race for the sprinters at Perth this Saturday and the track is finally starting to dry out.

We might have gone off one race too soon with Staralign last run but he's an each way hope again in that very race.

He simply got too far off them on a very heavy track in the Newmarket and while not suited at the weights now at WFA, his prior form was very sound.

The 6 1⁄2 f is what is the bonus in this and we are getting double figures to find out if he's good enough to be competitive. These Perth sprinters are taking turns.

Happy to have Clint Johnston-Porter on him again and also with our other play too.

Earlier, we're taking a punt on that one resuming over a mile this week with Off Wego in a Ratings 72+ race remembering he had form as a 3yo against some of the best WA have to offer.

This gelding had a long campaign over summer and got all the way to winning the Esperance Cup then finishing second in the Geraldton version.

Like the fact he's going first up over ground rather than wasting runs being run off his feet over shorter.

He's had two trials to be ready and given there is no standout in the race, we can back him with a little confidence at the odds.


EACH WAY PLAY (1): Race 4 #2 Off Wego @ $6.50

EACH WAY PLAY (2): Race 8 #11 Staralign @ $10.00
