Timeform on Decoupage

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

#1 Decoupage - Penn National R1 (23:00 BST)

Decoupage was beaten just half a length in a similar contest to this last time and is taken to go one better in the Penn National opener. Missive needs to put a couple of poor runs behind her but can prove the biggest threat if doing just that.

#1 Plains Warrior - Penn National R4 (00:25 BST)

An impressive C&D winner last time, Plains Warrior was claimed out of that contest by today's trainer Kimberly Graci, who has a fair record with new acquisitions. Lucky Clemen and Sunrise Saturday are the ones most likely to make a race of it.

#2 Night Spree - Penn National R5 (00:54 BST)

Night Spree was a long way below form on turf last time but now switches back to dirt while taking a big drop in class. It will be disappointing if he can't get the job done against this level of opposition. House of Friends and Rick's Surprise are considered the main dangers.
