Belmont Best Bet: Brave Dream
Our best bet on the Belmont card comes when Adam Durrant and William Pike combine with last-start winner Brave Dream in the opening leg of the quaddie. Having given her rivals a start from the rear of the field, the five-year-old mare managed to reel in her rivals late on and score in eye-catching fashion. Despite rising 2.5kg, the field she faces on Saturday is no harder than what she defeated on August 14. Even though Pike is yet to find himself in the minor money when aboard the mare from five starts, we expect her last-start win to give her the confidence to go on with it at this stage in her career. In the field of 10 she shouldn’t be too far from the speed, and the daughter of Declaration Of War will be hard to catch if she shows a similar turn of foot to what she produced last time out.
Next Best at Belmont: Kaptain Kaos
The Michael Grantham-trained Kaptain Kaos returned in fine fashion at this track and distance when storming home down the centre to salute on August 7. We have been a big fan of this gelding’s work, as he has won four times from eight starts and has only missed the top three on one occasion. The four-year-old son of Demerit has shown to be tactically versatile, as he can get the job done from the rear of the field or take a sit just off the speed. From barrier eight under Chris Parnham on Saturday, we anticipate he will go back from the wide barrier and look to run over the top of them. If he can replicate the turn of foot similar he showed first-up, Kaptain Kaos should be simply too good for his rivals in the last race of the day.
Best Value at Belmont: Story Book
The Trevor Andrews-trained Story Book returns to the Belmont 1000m following a close second-place finish behind Hardly Ever at the track and distance on August 18. The three-year-old Lucky Street filly has been racing in consistent form her entire career with a win and two minor placings to her name from five starts, with her only misses coming when competing in the Group 3 Gimcrack Stakes and then running into The Front Bar two starts back. With a genuine tempo expected, look for Story Book to get back in the field and then finish over the top of them under a well-timed steer from Shaun McGruddy.
