2020 Belmont Classic Field & Betting Update: Chantrea Odds-On

The money continues to roll in for Lindsey Smith’s undefeated Belmont Oaks winning filly Chantrea to continue her ace form as the odds-on favourite in Belmont Classic 2020 betting in WA this weekend.

The nicely-bred daughter of Puissance De Lune comes into Saturday’s Listed $100,000 Belmont Classic (2200m) having won all five of her previous starts and still looks on an upwards trajectory.

Boasting a three-from-three record at the Belmont track, Chantrea has raced exclusively at the course this Winter Racing Carnival.

Last start on July 4 she stepped-up to Black-Type company for the first time and was impressive as the odds-on favourite saluting in the Listed Belmont Oaks (2000m).

She returns a Listed winner on the weekend rising in distance again up to 2200m with the ‘Wizard of the West’ William Pike retaining the ride.

Pike chases his third win in the Belmont Classic since 2006 having previously ridden Lords Ransom (2007) and Elusive Image (2012) to victorying the event.

The duo is drawn the rails and while the inside alley may cause a few early issues for Pike, Chantrea is the classiest three-year-old in the field and will take some beating.

The latest Belmont Classic odds at Ladbrokes.com.au list Chantrea at $1.70 with the biggest danger shaping-up as the Oaks runner-up Cambist at $4.80.

Robyn Lockwood’s Gingerbread Man filly Cambist is the early Belmont Classic market mover having been backed in from her opening quote of $5 to turn the tables on Chantrea.

She was beaten only a length in the Oaks, prior to which she ran an eye-catching second at a blowout price (30/1) behind Group 1 Kingston Town Classic winner Kay Cee in the Listed Belmont Guineas (1600m).

Knocking on the door for a big win, Cambist boasts the advantage of previous 2200m winning form having won a handicap event over the distance on ANZAC Day carrying 55.5kg to victory at Ascot in late April.

The bookies are sticking with the form of the fillies to stack-up in the Belmont Classic with the only other runner at single-figures being Heaven’s Gift ($8) in barrier two.

Jarrad Noske rides the untapped Holly Locke-trained Not A Single Doubt filly who won her opening two career starts in June at Pinjarra before her sharp rise in grade when only 1.14 lengths away third in the Belmont Oaks trifecta.

Along with the favourite Smith also saddles-up his last-start winning Charm Spirit filly Queen Takes King who won at the track and distance a fortnight ago in a Class 3 carrying 56kg with Pike aboard.

She is at $11 for the Belmont Classic drawn gate seven and coming back to 54.5kg at set weights with Chris Parnham coming aboard for the ride.
