Timeform US SmartPlays: Sunday 17 February

Ladies cheering
Timeform pick out three bets in the US tonight

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Aqueduct on Sunday...

"...he seemingly has lots in his favour as he attempts to make it third-time lucky in this $60k maiden..."

Timeform on The Big Lebanese

#1 STORM PROPHET - Aqueduct R4 (19:27 GMT)

STORM PROPHET is a consistent performer at this sort of level, also capable of holding at his own in better company, and he looks sure to take all the beating if arriving in anything like top form on his first start for Rudy Rodriguez. Bluegrascat's Smile can chase him home.

#5 THE BIG LEBANESE - Aqueduct R5 (20:00 GMT)

THE BIG LEBANESE clearly has the ability to win a race of this nature, having filled the runner-up spot in each of his two starts to date, and he seemingly has lots in his favour as he attempts to make it third-time lucky in this $60k maiden, with further improvement on the cards. Top of the Mint and the newcomer Neper are feared most.

#4 TWISTED TOM - Aqueduct R7 (21:08 GMT)

TWISTED TOM was beaten in agonising fashion here last time, but that still represented a most encouraging start for the Bill Mot stable (previously with Chad Brown), and he would appear to hold sound claims of going one better tonight. Honor Up rates the chief threat in his hat-trick bid.
