Punters are having a good crack at Battle Hero in the feature race at Belmont this Saturday, the Idyllic Prince Stakes (1300m), with some nice bets coming for the sprinter.

Formerly with Team Williams, he is now with the Gangemi camp, having his first run for the stable a fortnight back in the Newmarket and finishing off with purpose behind Meteroid. He looks well placed and the punters agree, backing him into $2.15 from $2.30.

Just Act Natural does look the key threat. He is the $3.50 second favourite but has been a fraction easy, out from $3.20. The other key danger It’s It is also a drifter, opening $4.60 and now sitting at $5.

Another former Team Williams runner, Dark Alert, having his first run for Joe Miller, has been specked, into $27 from $31.
