Timeform pick out three bets from Belmont on Thursday.

#4 Playthatfunnymusic - Belmont R1, 20:05 BST

There's every chance that recent course winner Playthatfunnymusic can get an easy lead in this $25k claimer, and he'll be tough to beat in his follow up bid if that's the case. Analyze the Odds has a bit to find with the selection on recent form but looks the best of the opposition.

#5 Meet Me in L A - Belmont R3, 21:07 BST

Meet Me in L A improved to finish runner-up on his latest start and a repeat of that level of form should be enough to take this maiden special weight. Spice Road has run well on both outings to date and should emerge as the biggest threat.

#5 J J's Dreaming - Belmont R8, 23:46 BST

J J's Dreaming hasn't been seen for 186 days but has the form to win this allowance optional claimer if ready to roll following the layoff. Uncle Sigh could well be the main danger, while Storm Prophet is another who should be thereabouts.
