Comments: Looking at a fine day for the running of the Belmont Newmarket tomorrow, and the feature looks set to see the classy Smoko return to the winners list. I’ll be having a decent crack at the Danehill Express 4yo Stagnite tomorrow in the fourth. Found all sorts of problems first up over 1400m, before smashing a handy lot in a recent trial in what was nothing more than “leisurely stroll” – expect a big improvement here, and the $3.30 on offer won’t last long. Soldier’s Lass at eachway odds looks rather tempting in the third – didn’t set the world on fire in its latest two when taking on Listed company, but this presents a significant class drop tomorrow and has drawn beautifully (barrier 2) for Jerry Noske who claims 2kgs, while The Alleged finally makes its way to the preferred mile trip in the fifth – won third up last prep over the distance (as well as fourth up and fifth up in a devastating trifecta of victories) and will be rock hard in a very open affair.
Multi-Shorts: Wins only: True Gold ($3.60) into Stagnite ($3.30) into Aerozine ($3.70) = $43.96
Multi-Value: Wins and places for these: Soldier’s Lass ($6.50 / $2.10) into The Alleged ($11.00 / $3.60) into Aerozine ($3.70 / $1.60) = $264.55 / $12.10
OZ Racing: No Oz runners tomorrow at Belmont Park.
