Timeform's US team put forward three bets from Aqueduct and Turf Paradise on Saturday...

"The opposition today is a step down slightly from what he defeated last time and though there is maybe not quite so much potential pace on today, with several of his opponents in no form whatsoever right now he can follow up."

Aqueduct race 2 (18:51 BST) - Magical Miss (Lay)

Magical Miss looks a somewhat dubious favourite for the second race at Aqueduct and if on offer at the forecast 2.8 is worth laying. For all she stumbled at the start of her debut here a month ago she didn't do much of note in the race, trailing throughout, and her starting price suggested she wasn't not a lot was expected either. The opposition here is hardly stellar, but both Splendid Gold and Zippa Tequila have decent form claims and there are a trio of newcomers too to throw into the mix.

Aqueduct race 9 (22:28 BST) - Killer Crossover (Lay)

Killer Crossover seems likely to go off favourite for the last at Aqueduct with his market rival Doc Daneka declared for the main track only but his own credentials have to be called into question after two lacklustre efforts at Gulfstream Park this year. He's just about the marginal pick on form if you go back far enough in his CV but his current wellbeing has to be taken on trust and even a recent gelding operation may not turn his fortunes around against what looks a competitive field.

Turf Paradise race 9 (01:03 BST) - October Road

October Road is as consistent as they come at bargain basement claiming level at Turf Paradise and he looks to have a good chance of following up his latest win there in the last race at the Arizona venue today. The opposition today is a step down slightly from what he defeated last time and though there is maybe not quite so much potential pace on today, with several of his opponents in no form whatsoever right now he can follow up.

Race 2 Aqueduct (18:51 BST) win lay #2 MAGICAL MISS at 2.8 or shorter
Race 9 Aqueduct (22:28 BST) win lay #10 KILLER CROSSOVER at 3.6 or shorter
Race 9 Turf Paradise (01:03 BST) win back #8 OCTOBER ROAD at 3.6 or longer
