Timeform US SmartPlays: Sunday October 18
Timeform have found bets at Keeneland and Woodbine on Sunday.
Second Step is the clear form choice in the Canadian International (10.42 BST) at Woodbine and can bag his second top-grade contest of the year.
Keenland 18:39 - Spoonfulofsugar (LAY)
Spoonfulofsugar is a short price for one that has still to win a race on dirt and is worth laying in the second (18.39 BST) at Keeneland. The five-year-old mare has won five races on synthetics or grass, so is capable, but her dirt form pales by comparison and there are a couple in here that look likely to take her in front as well.
Keeneland 20:18 - Cowboy Rhythm
Rock Star Status has been put in as the favourite for the fifth (20.18 BST) at Keeneland but the son of Street Cry has had three chances already, is probably short enough and the claims of Cowboy Rhythm look more persuasive at the forecast odds. By Tapit out of a very good racemare West Coast Swing, the selection shaped with plenty of promise when third over an inadequate six furlongs on his debut and will be much better suited by this extended mile.
Woodbine 22:42 - Second Step
Second Step is the clear form choice in the Canadian International (10.42 BST) at Woodbine and can bag his second top-grade contest of the year. The wide expanses at Woodbine will suit this relentless galloper, as will the drop back to a mile and a half after looking easily second best behind Order Of St George in the Irish St Leger last time. He's a proven traveller, unlike his nearest form rival Cannock Chase, and his trainer knows what it takes to win this having taken it before with Infamy.
