Timeform highlight the three best bets at Belmont on Thursday.
“…she is well worth chancing to bounce back with Irad Ortiz Jr taking over in the saddle…”
Timeform on Gone Glimmering
#1 Calidad – Belmont R3 (21:09)
This doesn’t look the strongest race of its type and it looks a good opportunity for Calidad to open her account. She finished a respectable third in a stronger race at Aqueduct last month and her chance at the weights is there for all to see. Bewps is one to be interested in with a leading jockey booked.
#3 Gone Glimmering – Belmont R4 (21:40)
Gone Glimmering is a regular at Aqueduct, her last win coming over a mile at that course in February. She wasn’t at her best when last seen over the same course and distance last month, but that clearly wasn’t her running, and she is well worth chancing to bounce back with Irad Ortiz Jr taking over in the saddle. Glass Ceiling appeals as best of the remainder.
#3 O’Trouble – Belmont R5 (22:13)
O’Trouble arrives in blistering form having not finished out of the first three in his last five starts, winning twice over six furlongs at Aqueduct in that time. The step up in trip shouldn’t pose a problem and he will once again take all of the beating. Democratic Values has won his last two starts and is another to be positive about.
