Timeform pick out three bets in the US tonight

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

"This $10k claimer looks a good opportunity for him to strike for current connections..."

Timeform on Hawk

#2 Bern Cigars - Penn National R1, 23:05 GMT

Bern Cigars is still low mileage with just 5 runs under his belt and should have more to offer now starting out as a three-year-old. Vegas Tycoon can chase him home, with Konkie also fancied for minor honours.

#8 Hawk - Penn National R3, 23:58 GMT

Hawk has been running well without getting his head in front since being claimed by trainer Israel Garcia. This $10k claimer looks a good opportunity for him to strike for current connections, at the likely expense of Hesgotawaywithwrds and Howdy Boy.

#8 Old Faithful - Penn National R4, 00:28 GMT

Old Faithful went off too hard in front when well beaten last time and is better judged on his prior run when a good second over C&D. The pace shouldn't be as frantic this time around and he can come out on top ahead of Florida Boys and Blame Will.
