Best From The West: Belmont – 4th June 2022

Not many large fields in Perth on Raconteur Stakes day making finding value hard however that main race is a cracker.

Horses with group form (even G1 form) clashing with others coming through the grades fast makes for differing opinions.

In the Raconteur we have to love the way Rokanori came back from his attempt at staying.

Maybe the Melvista defeat might just focus connections' minds on races up to 2000m and potentially a tilt at the Railway/Kingston Town in five months' time.

Really like the fashion of his winning ways and the versatility of those victories – leading all the way one day and then coming from well back in the JC Roberts the next.

He should find a lovely position from the draw and be in the right position to make the move when required.

Then to the last where Flying Missile has to be a very dangerous commodity in this grade and with this weight.

Even if she's not really an apprentice's horse, she raced with such positivity over the Summer in events like the Belgravia, Burgess Queen, Placid Ark and Lee-Steere Classic – and not afraid to race the boys either.

More than capable of sitting forward, you just want them to use the barrier and if not leading then right with the lead division.

She can be tough so make the others get by her.
