Timeform US SmartPlays: Thursday 29 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...

"...if he reproduces the form he’s shown on turf and synthetics, he’ll prove very tough to beat."

Timeform on Almost Perfect

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

The veteran Snowday has faced some stiff tasks on his last 2 starts and is much better judged on his comeback win at Monmouth in May. He has strong claims on that form and is taken to come out on top ahead likely favourite Pool Winner.

#6 Almost Perfect - Penn National R4 (00:25 BST)

Almost Perfect has yet to race on dirt, but if he reproduces the form he's shown on turf and synthetics, he'll prove very tough to beat. There's no reason on pedigree why he shouldn't be as effective on the main track, and his recent workouts on Monmouth's dirt have been good.

#5 Dance and Dance - Penn National R5 (00:54 BST)

Dance and Dance was clearly amiss when well beaten last time and is taken to bounce back to form in this weaker race. Dirt debutant Nearly Missed may well be the main threat, while Miss Patriot is another likely to be in the shake-up.
