Timeform US SmartPlays: Saturday 16 January

US racing
Timeform bring you three to back in the US on Saturday

Timeform pick out three horses worth backing at Sam Houston on Saturday...

"This optional claimer represents a markedly easier task and she should take plenty of beating."

Timeform on Modified

#7 Ghoster - Sam Houston R2 (01:12)

Ghoster is the subject of a positive trainer change to the barn of Steve Asmussen and can get off the mark at the first time of asking for his new connections. Rush the Colors put in a good piece of work the other day and is likely to be on the premises too. Wings for Eno isn't entirely out of it either.

#6 Fancified - Sam Houston R3 (01:39)

Fancified hasn't run on turf for a little while but has some good form to her name on the surface and should put up a bold showing switching from the dirt. Good Fight arrives here in a very good vein of form and could well emerge as best of the remainder. Senorita Cometa also has claims.

#1 Modified - Sam Houston R5 (02:33)

Modified won on turf on debut and now switches back to that surface having been outpointed in a dirt stakes race last time. This optional claimer represents a markedly easier task and she should take plenty of beating. Becca's Rocket looks the biggest threat of the opposition.
