Timeform on Shiraz

Timeform select the three best bets from Belmont and Charles Town on Saturday...

#1 Zonic - Belmont R1 (18:00)

A winner on his most recent start at Saratoga, Zonic looks sure to go well if turning up here in the same sort of form. Just Right comes with a jockey booking that looks very significant and is the second pick, while Playwright is another who requires a second look.

#12 Shiraz - Belmont R9 (22:14)

Shiraz has been in good form this summer and is taken to regain the winning thread after finishing third last time out at Saratoga. Maxwell Esquire is in decent nick at present and is the most likely danger. Fast Getaway and Opt are others that command respect.

#6 Miss Wave - Charles Town R1 (00:00)

Miss Wave has run well on all five starts to date so must holds better claims than most in what isn't the deepest of maidens. Cheese Louise has a layoff to overcome but is also likely to be on the premises, while Got Any is another who is entitled to be in the mix.
