You'll have to wait until race day to get our expert's picks, but check out their early breakdown of the 152nd running of the Belmont Stakes in the video below
Nadal was very much appearing to be the one to beat in this year's Belmont, but he suffered a career ending injury recently and will not get his shot at glory sadly. Maxfield was also a major contender after his Matt Winn win, but he was also ruled out, with a different Kentucky Derby prep in mind for his connections. This very much paves the way for f Tiz The Law to take the first leg of the Triple Crown. Tiz The Law is the favorite with the UK books now and it's not hard to see why, he was seriously impressive in the Florida Derby. According to Oddschecker in the UK, they saw 71% of bets placed on Tiz The Law in the past 24 hours - he's seriously popular with bettors now.
Obviously here in the US, we don't have any odds available yet, but here you can see how the UK bookmakers have priced up the race.

Yes, the Belmont Stakes is one of the three Grade I stakes races that make up the Triple Crown. The other two are the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, both of these races usually take place before the Belmont Stakes, but this year the Belmont will be first race due to rescheduling caused by Covid-19.
Like the other two races in the Triple Crown, the winning horse of the Belmont Stakes gets a blanket of flowers draped over it after the race. For the Belmont Stakes, this blanket is made of white carnations.
