Several proven performers and black type-quality horses will step out at Belmont on Saturday afternoon and we have analysed every runner, in order to help you find a winner.

The action at Belmont is set to get underway with the running of the TABTouch Maiden (1200m) at 12:18pm local time and will conclude after the Crown Towers Handicap (2000m) at 4:45pm.

Race 1 (12:18pm) TABTouch Maiden (1200m)

Thirteen maidens have been confirmed in the field for Race 1 at Belmont on Saturday afternoon, including Lighthouse Rock (barrier 9). The gelding has gone extremely close in his two career starts so far and is primed for a big run this weekend. Tow Rope (barrier 2) ran on for a close second last time out and is a notable performer on both soft and firm tracks. Cricket Inda House (barrier 3) is drawn for an ideal run in transit and is sure to have taken plenty of benefit from a first-up run for second at Pinjarra, while the injury-plagued Saverio (barrier 13) has not been seen at the races in 2017, but has trialled well and is always strong first-up.

Tip: No. 7 Lighthouse Rock ($5)

Race 2 (12:58pm) Gabby Mallis 91st Birthday Plate (1200m)

Twelve horses have been confirmed in the field for Race 2, including four debutants. Rebellionaire (barrier 3) is one of those horses, but he has trialled well, is drawn ideally and has the notable advantage of William Pike in the saddle first-up. Pearl Trade (barrier 11) was strong to the line to post a smart win at Belmont last time out and should prove tough to beat once more, while Turbo Power (barrier 10) is sure to have taken plenty of benefit from his first-up third. Danes Maree (barrier 9) is yet to finish worse than second this time in and will have conditions to suit in this race and at Belmont once more. Fine Scent (barrier 8) ran a smart second amongst similar company last time out and is drawn to get a good run behind the speed.

Tip: No. 6 Danes Maree ($3.60)

Race 3 (1:38pm) Jockey Celebration Day Handicap (1000m)

Only nine horses will step out in Race 3, but the depth of talent confirmed means that it is an open race from a betting perspective. Just A Fluke (barrier 2) has interestingly not trialled in the lead-up to this, his first-up run this time, but has drawn ideally, is weighted well and has a great record when fresh. Patapus (barrier 8) returned to winning form with an impressive performance at Belmont last time out and will only improve with appropriate lick in transit. Forbidden Planet (barrier 9) has been charged with carrying topweight, but has been strong and consistent this time and probably has more class than most horses in this race, while Paris Texas should be rock-hard fit and is drawn ideally, with a manageable weight.

Tip: No. 3 Patapus ($4.40)

Race 4 (2:18pm) Kirin Megumi Handicap (1300m)

Eleven horses will contest Race 4 at Belmont on Saturday, including Cash On Call (barrier 2). The Vital Equine gelding flew home to post an impressive first-up win, is drawn well and will be partnered by William Pike once more this weekend. Enchanted Dream (barrier 5) is sure to have taken plenty of benefit from an easy first-up hit-out and will enjoy the conditions of this race second-up, while Dutch Spy (barrier 9) ran well for second in a mid-week race first-up and while clearly facing a step up in class, should be right in the finish of this race. Atlanta Blue (barrier 8) races well fresh and was an impressive winner last time out, but will have to overcome a race-high 58.5kgs and something of an awkward draw.

Tip: No. 6 Cash On Call ($2.80)

Race 5 (2:58pm) Devil’s Lair Handicap (1400m)

Nine horses will step out in Race 5 at Belmont, including consistent galloper Miki Two Toes (barrier 9). The eight-year-old ran third behind Scales Of Justice in the Group 3 Hyperion Stakes (1600m) last time out and will be tough to beat in stepping back in grade and following a freshen-up. Former east coast galloper Just Magical (barrier 4) has been strong in two Perth races so far and will only improve into this race again, while Flying Time (barrier 3) was strong amongst stakes company last time out, is drawn and weighted well and should be right in the finish once more. Baraki Beats (barrier 6) has a fitness edge on many of his rivals here and should find the pace easily in this small field, and will be tough to run down.

Tip: No. 1 Miki Two Toes – Each Way ($7.50/$2.45)

Race 6 (3:35pm) Amelia Park Beef Handicap (1600m)

It is an open field of ten that has been confirmed for Race 6 and there is winning potential across the board. Astronomite (barrier 3) has been racing in excellent form this time in and returned to winning form last time out, but will have to overcome a heavy weight in this race. Friaresque (barrier 10) ran credibly for fourth in less-than ideal conditions last weekend and will appreciate an improving track on Saturday, while Showy Chloe (barrier 5) improved drastically for third last time out and is sure to be boosted by William Pike on Saturday. Granlarado (barrier 9) is another horse that will take improvement into this race and at his best, is more than up to the quality of this race.

Tip: Np. 7 Friaresque ($3.90)

Race 7 (4:10pm) 2017 Ascot Racing Carnival – Book Now Handicap (1200m)

There is plenty of winning potential in the field for Race 7 and subsequently plenty of value to be taken from a betting perspective. Universal Law (barrier 7) will contest the race first-up, but has class in spades and is drawn well to find a position behind the speed with Pike in the saddle. Lockroy (barrier 1) steps up in class here, but is weighted well and steadily rebuilt to the task after a mid-preparation form slump. My Greek Boy (barrier 10) was flying last time in, enjoys racing fresh and has trialled well in the lead-up to this race. Hobart Jones’ (barrier 8) ability has clearly faded in recent seasons, but he remains a competitive horse and is worth consideration at an each-way quote.

Tip: No. 5 My Greek Boy – Each Way ($8/$2.60)

Race 8 (4:45pm) Crown Towers Handicap (2000m)

The only capacity field of the day at Belmont on Saturday has been drawn to the final race. Jetoomy (barrier 5) has been racing well this time and could receive the run of the race from an inside draw, while Luke’s Gold (barrier 11) has also found strong and consistent form and has the benefit of claiming apprentice Fred Kersley Jnr in the saddle. Caralabek (barrier 4) should be finding peak condition in this race and maps to get an ideal run with William Pike, while Indi Pacific (barrier 16) has been luckless in her two most-recent starts and faces another tough run from a wide draw.

Tip: No. 5 Caralabek ($6)
