Belmont Sprint 2015 Betting Tips & Form Guide

This weekend in Perth the major race is the 2015 Belmont Sprint featuring just the eight hopes after the early scratching of multiple Group 1 winner Luckygray, betting tips for the weight-for-age feature found below.

Set to run as Belmont Race 7 at 4:12pm (WA time) this year’s $150,000 Group 3 Belmont Sprint (1400m) looked to be Luckygray’s for the taking after the seven-year-old won the Group 3 Roma Cup first-up at the same track last time out a fortnight ago.

The mighty grey’s trainer Trevor Andrews was forced to scratch the $2.7 million earner from the Belmont Sprint line-up on Thursday afternoon after discovering an abscess.

“(Jockey) Shaun (O’Donnell) came back off the track saying he felt super,” Andrews told The West Australian on Friday.

“I had runners in Northam, but I didn’t go because I wanted to take him for a walk this afternoon.

“When I went into his yard I found him standing on three legs.

“I immediately rang the vet and his off-side front shoe was pulled off.

“He found a pulse and when they pressured it puss came out.

“I can’t believe an abscess could come on that quick.”

“He needed pain relief and has a poultice on the hoof.”

With Luckygray out of the mix the leader in the Belmont Sprint odds at $2.50 is the Darren Mcauliffe-trained Trade Fair mare Fuchsia Bandana who is second-up after resuming with a third to Luckygray in the Roma Cup a fortnight back.

It’s a wide open field with three other single figure hopes in the markets with the Grant Williams-trained market mover Shining Knight ($5 into $4.60) last seen running fifth in the Roma Cup, Vaughn Sigley’s Roma Cup runner-up Dawn Approach ($4.50) and Paula Wagg’s returning four-year-old mare Balmont Girl ($6) in the outside alley.

So do the bookies have it right or is there an upset Belmont Sprint result on the cards this weekend?



#5 Dawn Approach ($4.50)

This in-form galloper has run top three in his past four runs with a win over Shining Knight in the Listed Northam Toyota Stakes (1100m) two back before a second in the Roma Cup, the form of which is set to stack up again on Saturday despite the absence of the winner Luckygray. Sigley’s Statue Of Liberty four-year-old is in flying form, and while this is just his second look at the Belmont track there’s plenty to suggest he’ll be hard to hold out in the sprint based on his tough on-speed style. Only needs to handle the 1400m.


#3 Shining Knight ($4.60)

Williams’s galloper has Peter Hall retaining the ride, Blackfriars six-year-old Shining Knight having run second to our tip for Saturday’s win Dawn Approach in the Northam Stakes before a fifth in the Roma Cup. Has a bit more experience, just, over the 1400m (2-0-1-1) so is another that needs to handle the extra metres to get the better of the favourite but has the class to do so.


#9 Fuchsia Bandana ($2.50)

Mcauliffe’s mare is shortie in the markets and cannot be ignored. She is second-up and undefeated with three wins from as many previous starts two runs in. Her resuming run was a smart third in the Roma Cup and she’ll be improving on that, when beaten only three-quarters of a length. Jockey Ben Kennedy stays on, it’s another small field and she’s got winning form at both the track (5-1-1-1) and the distance (2-1-1-0).
