Best From The West: Belmont – 31st July 2021

There has been plenty of rain around all Winter and it continues in Perth at the moment so look for the wet trackers.

The most interesting race on the card ironically is a six horse sprint but the best horse on the day is deserved of being the best bet.

Indian Pacific went to a whole new level last time in when he took his abilities to the big league.

He was close up down the straight in the Bob Hoysted but that went to another new height when a cracking run in the Newmarket Handicap.

Only just nabbed by Zoutori on the line, he then was over the top in the William Reid.

His record at Belmont is excellent, the 1000m is absolutely no issue for him and he's run so well on affected ground importantly.

If he handles the big weight he's got lengths on these.

With two year olds and heavy tracks it is critical they not only handle it, but experience is a huge factor.

They can be all at sea but one who scored on that last outing was Forever Autumn and he is value in Race 3.

The son of Divine Prophet got onto heavy ground two weeks ago and drew away late to score.

Whether it is just him or the breed themselves, you'd suspect he's in the right place now and the step up another 100m should only benefit again on that breeding.
