Timeform pick out their three best bets from Belmont on Thursday...

"She should be hard to stop in her follow up bid..."

Timeform on Lead Guitar

#3 Lead Guitar - Belmont R6 (21:05 BST)

Lead Guitar built on the promise of her previous two runs when opening her account at Saratoga last time, bumped at the start but drawing clear in the style of a good prospect in the closing stages. She should be hard to stop in her follow up bid, with Flush and A Little Faith expected to give her most to think about.

#1 American Tattoo - Belmont R7 (21:40 BST)

There doesn't appear to be much pace on here and American Tattoo should prove tough to peg back if getting his own way out in front. He was a winner here in June and is expected to bounce back from a lesser effort at Saratoga last time now. High North and Backsideofthemoon are both capable of getting involved and rate the biggest dangers.

#13 Hold My Call - Belmont R8 (22:11 BST)

Hold My Call hasn't troubled the judge in two starts so far, but he has shown enough to suggest he is up to winning a race of this nature, so is worth siding with in what doesn't look the strongest race of its type. Tercero and Cryptographer are also considered.
