Timeform on Western Trajectory

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Penn on Thursday...

#3 Western Trajectory - Penn R1, 23:00 BST

Western Trajectory has been placed on his last 3 starts and looks the one to be with in this low-level claiming contest. Equus Novus, having won last time, is rated the main danger, with Warrior Ridge fancied for third place.

#9 Smart Royal T - Penn R2, 23:27 BST

Smart Royal T has been in good form at Laurel Park of late, only narrowly beaten on both his last 2 starts. He can go one better this evening, ahead of Chill Factor and For the Moment.

#3 Riva Belle - Penn R5, 00:54 BST

Having won 2 of her last 3 starts, one of which was over tonight's C&D, Riva Belle should take plenty of catching once more. Vindictive Ways may be the one for the forecast, while Rag Top can fill out the trifecta.
