Best From The West: Belmont – 19th September 2020

It is a card when the pink and white colours could have another day out and we’ve found one in the feature race as the best.

Celebrity Queen chases four wins from her last five outings. The mare by Redoute's Choice kicks back off in a handy Nicopolis Stakes but the fact she is there and not in easier company suggests she is going well.

She has a powerful finish on her and while she does get back in the field, with not many rivals, she will never be that far behind, having to make up the ground.

All she needs is decent speed and sitting down on the limit is just another bonus for her.

They could back the race fit opponents so we may do better on the day.

The following race has Ocean's Fifteen stepping back out and he ran well last time in without finding the winner's stall.

He was probably a little unlucky not to win one of his first two starts back in March.

Importantly here he carries only 55kg and even if ridden to find the line rather than go forward, he's not exactly meeting a field full of stellar recent winners.

Off only seven starts for a 5yo he should be now at his best as a race horse.
