Timeform pick out three bets in the US tonight

"He could well dictate a soft pace from the front and will be tough to peg back if that is the case."

Timeform on Perfect Joe

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Tampa Bay on Friday...

#11 Executive Bonus - Tampa Bay R3, 17:56 GMT

Executive Bonus had shown plenty of ability in maidens for her previous trainer and now goes first-off-the-claim for new handler Robert Raymond. She looks a solid proposition in this maiden claimer, with Indurate and Fledermaus looking the main dangers.

#8 Perfect Joe - Tampa Bay R4, 18:26 GMT

Perfect Joe has been placed on his last two starts and looks to have been found a good opportunity to build on those placings in the claimer. He could well dictate a soft pace from the front and will be tough to peg back if that is the case.

#8 Faction Cat - Tampa Bay R9, 20:57 GMT

Faction Cat looked a new horse when switching back to the turf and dropping in trip last time, recording an impressive C&D win. He is taken to follow up at the main expense of Hazit, who kept some good company last year but may find this 5f trip sharp enough returning from a 300-day layoff for a new barn.
