Timeform's US team pick out the best bets on Saturday.

"His profile, while generally steadily progressive, isn’t persuasive enough to think he can make the leap required here."

Irish Cat could be the answer to the fifth race (19:20 GMT) at Aqueduct. Both Sioux and Wild Cat Appeal have leading chances too, but the selection took a big step forward two starts back switched back to the dirt and being back on the dirt again here after a fair effort back on turf last time might well bring him on again. The forecast 4.5 looks fair.

Kid Cruz looks a lay in the eighth (20:50 GMT) at Aqueduct. There seems little to choose between the two form selections Mylute and Tommy Macho, while Kid Cruz has a fair amount to find. His profile, while generally steadily progressive, isn't persuasive enough to think he can make the leap required here.

The sixth race (01:40 GMT) at Turfway looks ripe for an upset with the market leaders all having question marks over them and probably the best lay is the forecast second favourite Fazzle Dazzle. She has beaten only three rivals in her last three races, including in a much weaker affair then this, and makes little appeal as a win selection.
