BELMONT RACE 7

8. RATION ALY has recorded the fastest last 200 metres split on each of her four appearances and the three-time winner is set to go through the grades.

5. SUPER TEROITOA meets Ration Aly 1.5 kilograms better than when she ran down him in the shadows of the post last month.

7. POINT TAKEN won in this grade against weaker opposition first up.

2. LONG BEACH is the marginal top pick in the best race of the meeting even though one expects to see him excel over farther than 1,000 metres.

5. THIS’LL TESTYA proved very little with her first-up win and will probably start at shorter odds than she should.

1. CONDOR HEROES is two from two in Western Australia but he led both of those races and he is unlikely to find the front on Saturday.

3. SILKINIZE beat all bar in-form sprinter Nerodio last time out when the tempo was not as fast as he would have liked.

6. MODERATOR returns to Saturday grade following a midweek win over this distance, which appears to be in the range that suits him best.

3. INFLATION is the probable leader but he lacks a turn of gear so a lot will depend on how aggressively he is ridden.

2. BIG SHOT PADDY was faster late than all bar Ration Aly when he resumed following 272 days away from the track.

10. ARTIE’S JEWELS was held up at the top of the straight before finishing two lengths behind Moderator last time out.
