R8. Get The Tabtouch Handicap - Belmont 1 July 2017

Terry Leighton | Fri 30 June, 2017

1200m | 4:50PM

A Bold Selection

 A thin race on paper to finish the day with the Bob Peters pair of Bold Success and Show Honey looking the obvious two. I was a little surprised to see Pike opt for Bold Success over Show Honey, though he has been wrong in the past. Happy tipping this might be the case again here. She clearly didn't handle the step up to 1600m and as long as he has not taken any ill effects from that run she should be very difficult to hold out late. Her run two starts back beating subsequent winners Fontainebleau and Blackline should be enough to account for this moderate field. The fact she carries only 53kgs is a bonus.

Remunerator is the big 'watch' horse here after impressing in her trials and being well backed first up. Her only WA effort did fail to flatter, but that was a very leader biassed day and she was heavily supported. I would be willing to give her another chance if they are making ground from the back. I think she might be a smart one.
