Timeform pick out three bets from Belmont on Friday...

"This is just his second start for trainer Rudy Rodriguez - and only his third overall - so the likelihood is there is plenty more to come."

Timeform on Hot Mesa

#4 Jasmine's Gem - Belmont R2, 19:04 BST

An interesting maiden claimer on the turf in which Jasmine's Gem makes plenty of appeal dropped to this level for the first time since her debut. First-time starter Secret Quality, from a good turf barn, is worth keeping an eye on too.

#6 Hot Mesa - Belmont R3, 19:37 BST

There are several interesting angles relating to Hot Mesa, the most interesting of which is the fact he races as a gelding for the first time. This is just his second start for trainer Rudy Rodriguez - and only his third overall - so the likelihood is there is plenty more to come.

#8 Sardonyx - Belmont R9, 22:50 BST

Sardonyx was probably unlucky to bump into a progressive rival last time and can make it second time lucky in maiden claiming company. Her previous form at maiden special weight level marks her out as very much the one to beat in this contest.
