Belmont Jewel a 5/1 gem ​


Belmont Jewel posted an improved effort when runner-up last time out and looks worth a bet at 5/1 to go one better and land the spoils in the 2.15 at Wincanton today.​​
This seven-year-old was an Irish pint winner who shaped quite nicely on her second start after joining Michael Scudamore when a staying on under tender handling to be never nearer 28 lengths eighth of 16 to Posh Trish in a decent novice hurdle at Chepstow.​

She then failed to shine next time up and after being allotted an opening handicap mark of 98 was pulled-up in her first two starts in that sphere​. ​ However, on her second start back from wind surgery there was lots to like about her run at Huntingdon earlier in the month when second of 10 to Mabela in a class 4.​

Belmont Jewel raced prominently throughout before taking up the running going well three from home. After coming under a ride two from home she found plenty and only got headed near the finish to be beaten a neck by the well-supported Dam Skelton trained 4/1 favourite.​

It was a big step back in the right direction and a 2lb rise in the weights to 91 looks more than fair.​ ​ That looks exploitable, especially as Belmont Jewel now drops down into class 5 company. With the yard in good form she looks weighted to take all the beating in this if building on her lastest effort.​ ​

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts win Belmont Jewel (5/1 bet365, BetVictor, Sky Bet- BOG)​
