Timeform pick out three bets in North America tonight

"Brienne of Tarth has gradually improved and looks the one to beat in this maiden claimer. She gets class relief here and it should take something special to beat her if she matches her previous best on the speedfigures."

Timeform bring you the best bets at Belmont At The Big A and Woodbine on Thursday.

Alessia (Belmont At The Big A R1, 18:00 BST) looks to have the best claims in this maiden. She's hit the board on both of her starts at Keeneland and Saratoga and can get off the mark here. Funny How appeals as best of the remainder after finishing third on both starts, though her speed figures linger a little behind the selection.

Donegal Surges (Belmont At The Big A R3, 19:02 BST) will be hard to beat on these terms and is up to winning this. The son of Candy Ride won a maiden special weight by 5½ lengths at Saratoga before finishing second by a similar distance when second in a stakes contest there last time. Arctic Arrogance also won a maiden special weight at that course on debut and posted a good time but may have to settle for second best here.

Brienne of Tarth (Woodbine R3, 22:52 BST) has gradually improved and looks the one to beat in this maiden claimer. She gets class relief here and it should take something special to beat her if she matches her previous best on the speedfigures. Hushmeup also gets class relief and has a top jockey in the saddle and is taken to get second.
