Timeform US SmartPlays: Thursday 22 August

Horses on dirt
Timeform pick out three bets in the US tonight

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

"...hasn’t been seen to best effect on her last 2 starts when trapped wide both times..."

Timeform on Nyx Warrior

#1 Messy Baker - Penn National R3 (23:55 BST)

Messy Baker completely failed to act on turf last time and should put up a much better showing now he switches back to dirt. Main Cool Cat also seemed not to take to turf on his most recent outing and should give the selection most to think about.

#6 Nyx Warrior - Penn National R5 (00:54 BST)

Nyx Warrior hasn't been seen to best effect on her last 2 starts when trapped wide both times and may provide some value in this allowance optional claimer. I'll Take the Cake and Key Light are the obvious dangers but neither will be a particularly enticing price.

#6 Glacier Express - Penn National R6 (01:23 BST)

Glacier Express has been in fine form this year (not out of the places in 5 starts) and he should give another good account. Afleet Traxx is still unexposed after just 2 outings and may still have more to offer, while Known Quantity can also be on the premises.
