Timeform on Big Wonder

Timeform select the three best bets from North America on Friday...

#9 Zipalong - Belmont R2 (18:33)

Zipalong ran well to finish third in stakes company last time and looks to have a decent chance dropping back into claiming company. Me and Mr C makes his first start for a new trainer and is up there on the shortlist too, while Gravitas can't be ruled out of it either.

#3 Bel Bimbo - Woodbine R2 (18:43)

Third over shorter last time, previous course-and-distance winner Bel Bimbo will appreciate the step back up in trip and should make a bold show. Seemee may be the one to chase the selection home, while Just Run With It is another that demands closer scrutiny.

#2 Big Wonder - Belmont R7 (21:08)

Big Wonder has been knocking on the door recently and has an excellent chance at the weights in this $40k turf claiming contest. Our Troubadour represents a stable with a decent strike rate here and is also likely to be on the premises. Red Mule and Threepointninenine both command respect as well.
