Timeform's US team bring you three bets for the American racing on Monday.

"The drop back to this 6f distance looks in her favour..."

Saratoga race 3 (19:06 BST) - Two Taps

Two Taps broke her maiden over a sprint trip at Santa Anita two starts ago and stumbled at the start when well beaten over a mile last time. The drop back to this 6f distance looks in her favour. Titanium can go well at a decent price, while Callista is also feared.

Delaware race 3 (19:15 BST) - Annawon

Annawon had a tough passage last time out, but still ran creditably to finish fifth, and can make amends in this $10k claiming contest. Back Away has been in fair form and looks the main threat on just his third start for the Aldano Gonzalez barn.

Delaware race 5 (20:15 BST) - Clutchingatstraws

Clutchingatstraws has been performing in stronger company on the New York circuit, and can make her first start for new trainer, Arnaud Delacour, a winning one. My Jolie and Sequiota (if drawing in from the reserve list) can give her most to do.

Timeform US SmartPlays:

Back #1 TWO TAPS in race 3 at Saratoga (19:06 BST)
Back #1 ANNAWON in race 3 at Delaware (19:15 BST)
Back #2 CLUTCHINGAT STRAWS in race 5 at Delaware (20:15 BST)
