Timeform pick out their three best bets from Belmont and Penn on Friday...
"...she can win a race of this nature, for all that she steps back up in grade slightly here."
Timeform on Merger Arbitrage
#3 Merger Arbitrage - Belmont R2, 19:04 BST
Merger Arbitrage's comeback run contained more than enough promise to think she can win a race of this nature, for all that she steps back up in grade slightly here. French Empire makes plenty of appeal and looks the main danger, while Asticou Trail is another to keep an eye on.
#2 Sir Ballantine - Belmont R3, 19:37 BST
Sir Ballantine's best form marks him out as very much the one to beat in this claimer. Versatile as regards conditions, the current rain around the New York area will be of no consequence to Danny Gargan's charge.
#3 Body High - Penn R4, 00:22 BST
Body High has hardly looked back since being claimed by Jorge Navarro in the spring, winning four of her five starts since then. She is taken to come out on top again, with Shacklefords Lady and Cheeky Cowgirl the ones for the minor berths.
