Timeform pick out three bets from Saratoga and Del Mar on Saturday...
Good Samaritan - 22:44 Saratoga
Good Samaritan was campaigned exclusively on turf before switching to dirt in the Grade 2 Jim Dandy last time, his strong late surge to run out a convincing winner (off fractions that weren't the quickest) was eye-catching to say the least, and he is taken to build on that, establishing himself as the top US three-year-old in the process.
Time For Cioppino - 00:10 Del Mar
Time For Cioppino has been running well in defeat and has the best form on offer in this line-up, so is fancied to deservedly open his account at the fifth time of asking. Oh Man has hit the frame all three starts to date and looks the biggest danger.
Oregon - 00:40 Del Mar
Oregon arrives right at the top of his game, winning his last two starts in good fashion, suggesting he could still have more to offer, so is expected to complete a hat-trick under Gary Stevens. This looks competitive mind, and Newsman hasn't run a bad race since joining this yard, and is expected to be involved too.
