Timeform US SmartPlays: Friday June 19

Friday's three best bets all run at Belmont
Friday's three best bets all run at Belmont

Timeform's US team select three bets from Belmont as their leading bets on Friday.

"Second-time starter Gotachancetodance looks the one to be on in the closing maiden claimer on turf."

Belmont race 1 (20:00 BST) - Trophee

Trainer Christophe Clement appears to hold the key to this turf maiden, fielding both Trophee and Castellani. The ex-French-trained Trophee has been second on three of her four US starts so far, but has done little wrong, and can finally get off the mark at the chief expense of her stable companion.

Belmont race 2 (20:31 BST) - Colonel Juanita

Colonel Juanita is ultra-consistent, and looks like a getting a good trip from the outside post in a field that contains very little in the way of early pace. My Donna Jean has traded several blows with Colonel Juanita in the past, but seems unlikely to get the fast pace that sees her to best effect.

Belmont race 9 (00:08 BST) - Gotachancetodance

Second-time starter Gotachancetodance looks the one to be on in the closing maiden claimer on turf. A decent runner-up at a similar level last time out, natural improvement should see her well capable of taking this contest. Angel Choir and Emerald Pond look next best.
