The Adam Durrant-trained Belmont Guineas winning filly Summah’s Touch is well fancied to score another stakes win at Belmont Park on Saturday opening top of the 2013 Belmont Stakes odds.
After beating home the colts and geldings first-up on June 22 in the Listed Belmont Guineas (1600m) the daughter of Blackfriars will now go back up against her own kind.
Summah’s Touch is one of 14 hopeful fillies engaged in the $80,000 Belmont Oaks (2000m) which is due to jump at 3:55pm (local time) as Belmont Park Race 7.
Her brilliant resuming run where she overcame barrier 11 of 11, as well as her Group 3 WA Oaks (2400m) second back in April have seen the bookies install Summah’s Touch odds-on in the Belmont Oaks odds.
She’s opened at a short $1.85 and is firming with her Belmont Guineas winning jockey Ben Paterson staying on for the ride, the pair set to start from a favourable barrier six draw.
Just two of Summah’s Touch’s rivals are under double figures to beat home the shortie in the markets with Pants On Friar and Fashion Princess both on $7.
One inside the favourite with barrier five is Pants On Friar, Lou & Dion Luciani’s fellow Blackfriars filly third in the WA Oaks back in autumn.
With good form over 2000m – 2400m she is tipped to relish the Belmont Oaks distance as she sees the track for the first time, Pants On Friar coming off a second over the Pinjarra mile last month.
Fashion Princess meanwhile has a wide barrier 14 draw to overcome.
Grant Williams’ daughter of Iffraaj has the class and time to do so however as she goes up to 2000m for the first time, Fashion Princess last seen winning a 1700m handicap at the track from June 19.
Other notable Belmont Oaks chances at juicer odds for an upset then include Durrant’s other runner Redwood Rose ($17) who was sixth to Fashion Princess last start, the Stephen Wolfe-trained Hot Rumor ($18) and Miss Radler ($19) out for her maiden win who are the only others under $20 in the markets.
