"That form looks too strong for his rivals..."

Timeform on Oneballnostrikes

#3 R Jolley Dreamer - Penn National R2, 23:27 BST

R Jolley Dreamer will be making his debut at Penn National but has shown his versatility on his last three starts. He finished second to Draxhall Woods on the dirt at Monmouth in July - that form looks solid - then landed the odds in a claimer in the wet at Delaware before chasing home Jersey Joe B on the turf back at Monmouth last time.

#5 Marmalade - Presque Isle Downs R7, 00:55 BST

Marmalade won two of her three starts for trainer Darien Rodriguez and now races for Patrick Rhodes, who has shown that he is more than capable of reaching the winner's enclosure with the few runners he has had over the past couple of years. Buck Snort has progressed to win his last two races, but needs to find more improvement to trouble the selection.

#6 Oneballnostrikes - Penn National R6, 01:16 BST

Oneballnostrikes has shown gradual improvement of late and after winning by four lengths at Monmouth in July, he went down by just a nose to Awesome Thought in a final furlong duel on the same course last month. That form looks too strong for his rivals, the best of whom could prove to be Guns of Steel, who has won twice here this year.
