Timeform US SmartPlays: Saturday July 30
Timeform pick out three bets from Saratoga and Mountaineer on Saturday.
"Confront and Awesome Group are obvious dangers, but that pair look likely to be involved in an early battle for the speed..."
Cerro - Saratoga 18:33
Cerro was a comfortable winner of his penultimate start at Aqueduct, quickly taking his customary position towards the head of the field and keeping on bravely to maintain his advantage all the way to the line. He has to bounce back from a below par effort at Belmont Park last time, but looks likely to have an easy time of it on the front end here and is fancied to make a successful debut for the Jorge Navarro stable.
Ocean City - Mountaineer 00:00
Ocean City is without a win since scoring over five furlongs here 12 months ago, but she has been running creditably since rejoining this yard and finished well to snatch second over this C&D last time. Confront and Awesome Group are obvious dangers, but that pair look likely to be involved in an early battle for the speed and Ocean City is fancied to come through and gain the victory her consistency deserves.
Boom Boom Frankie - Mountaineer 01:06
Boom Boom Frankie was in good form towards the end of 2015, registering a hat-trick of wins at Gulfstream Park and looking the type to continue to pay his way in this company. He has been below that form for the most part since, but showed signs of a revival when third on his most recent outing at Thistledown and Boom Boom Frankie is taken to confirm earlier promise with a defeat of likely pacesetter Da Big Dawg.
