We have four starters for Belmont on Saturday which could be a bit tricky if we get the weather predicted.
Race 2 – We have Malibu Style running over the 1000m and backing up from last Saturday.
He has been kept fresh this week and Paul Harvey has been engaged to ride him and we are hopeful he can get him across the line before a spell.
It is a race full of a lot of speed so that may work for Malibu Style as he can be a horse that has a good kick off a good speed race.
I think he has excellent claims with Paul riding him.
Race 3 – We have Discoville engaged and he will be better for his first up effort. He is up to a 1600m race and that seems about his distance.
He may still be a run or two away from his best but expecting improvement.
Race 6 – Fabulistic is engaged and one of our favourites in the stable. He has been in great form but up in class so it is a test for him.
However in form horses are always about the place and he has held form. He is an each way chance.
Race 8 – Crown Lawyer will be backing up from last Saturday but this week have elected to go with a 3kg claim of in form apprentice Jake Casey.
He has taken time to find his best form this preparation and although finishing close up I have expected slightly more.
However a good gate carrying 54.5 and having the benefit of two runs in he should be ready. I’m expecting him to run well.
