Leading the way in this Classic betting is last year's top juvenile, Forte. Following two victories in the trials, Todd Pletcher's star was due to carry the tag of favouritism into the Kentucky Derby. That was until Irad Ortiz Jnr's mount picked up a stone bruise during the build-up and was ruled out of the Derby just hours before the off.
Forte could come up against Angel Of Empire, who was backed into favouritism for the Kentucky Derby when the favourite was withdrawn and stayed on from the rear to finish third behind Mage. Tapit Trice, a disappointing seventh in the Derby, could also step up in trip and enter his second Classic of the season.
Bob Baffert's National Treasure will try and win his second Triple Crown contest, having held on from the front to win the Preakness Stakes last month. There's then a decent gap in the market until we reach Hit Show and Raise Cain, who finished fifth and eighth respectively in the Kentucky Derby.
Peter Pan Stakes winner, Arcangelo could step up into Grade One company for the first time. Other possible Belmont Stakes runners include Sun Thunder, Red Route One, Prove Worthy and Reincarnate.
