Best From The West: Belmont – 8th August 2020

A few big sized fields feature on the Belmont program on Saturday.

It isn't the easiest of meetings and so we'll go for a last start winner as the best in the form of Billy Ain't Silly.

After a close third on debut he went up to 1200m and despite easing dramatically in the betting, led and won with a little ease.

The step up another furlong means they won't go fast and gaining control would be a positive move again.

That often happens in these smaller fields as all the jocks tend to feel they will get their chance at some stage.

Onto Race 6 where Regal Counsel resumes over 1200m in a race devoid of many hopes.

Importantly he draws a soft alley and has been able to take up a position in many of his outings.

With a lovely first up record, you can see him positioning up right behind the speed with the favourites potentially buried back in the field.

After the claim he will be not a long way over the limit so his price seems a good play each way.
