Levis’s Boy met late solid support when a narrow second to Seattle Beau first-up at Northam two weeks ago.
The Bearcat gelding bounded out of the gates and was in front for the majority of the race until the last stride.
The Brendon Fitzgerald-trained five-year-old backs up in the facebook.com/racingradiowa Handicap (1000m) at Belmont on Wednesday.
The Capel trainer says he doesn’t expect or anticipate Levi’s Boy to be dictating and controlling the race throughout.
“He jumped the gates a little too quickly and was too hard to bring back,” said Fitzgerald on Racing Radio.
“Ideally we wanted to be sitting behind the leaders and have a cushy run first-up.
“He just got a little tired over the final 50m.
“He has come on from that run and although he can lead or come from behind I would like to see him settled off the pace.
“He should be finishing off nicely and attacking the line hard.”
Levi’s Boy, to exit from gate four, will be partnered by apprentice Ben Paterson who takes over from the suspended William Pike.
Levi’s Boy, who has failed in three previous attempts at Belmont Park, will run into last-start winner Park Lane and the consistent Sealynx.
A watch also on Flying Spur mare Dark Delight who has been impressive in trials and races first-up for trainer Grant Williams.
Sealynx has found the money on four occasions from six starts this campaign including a win over 1100m at Northam on May 11.
Jim Taylor will have high hopes with his two charges, True Storm in the Ozbet.com.au Handicap (1000m) and Magnifisio in the tabtouch.mobi Handicap (1200m).
True Storm, a filly by Hurricane Sky, is inching closer to an elusive maiden win after placings at her first two outings.
“She has run well in both her starts and the form around her is pretty good,” said Taylor.
“She beat Park Lane easily who won last week.
“This looks a nice race for her.”
Magnifisio hasn’t raced since February but trialled well with a 1000m win over Oosterman a fortnight back.
“I like her and she should be pretty hard to beat mid week,” said Taylor.
