Timeform on Calculated Thinking

#1 Melodrama - Penn National R1, 23:05 GMT

This looks a two-horse affair on paper, with Melodrama narrowly favoured over Goodmorninsunshine. Despite still being a maiden after eleven starts, he selection is still relatively unexposed around two turns and can finally get off the mark.

#7 Calculated Thinking - Penn National R3, 23:58 GMT

Calculated Thinking has run well to be placed on all four starts since breaking his maiden and looks to have a strong chance in this $25k claimer. Shock Treatment may be next best, with Shacklefords Pride another to consider.

#4 Huntington Drive - Penn National R6, 01:28 GMT

Huntington Drive was recently claimed by high-percentage operator Timothy Kreiser and is likely to showed improved form as a result. He is taken to come out on top ahead of Bolara and Son of Sanibel.
