Timeform's US Smartplays team have three advised betfs for this evenings racing at Keeneland

Timeform's US team bring you three bets from tonight's racing at Keeneland...

"While she is a winner on turf, Ms Hoochie Coochie is better on dirt, and can take this $25k claimer."

Keeneland race 2, 18:36 BST - Crittenden

Godolphin's Crittenden is unbeaten on turf, and will appreciate switching back to that surface after a never-dangerous sixth place finish in a G3 contest on dirt last time out. Nun the Less was staying on over an inadequate five furlongs last time, and should relish this step back up to a mile, while Watchyourownrobber's most recent synthetic effort was disappointing, but turf appears to suit much better.

Keeneland race 3, 19:07 BST BST - Ms Hoochie Coochie

Ms Hoochie Coochie's last dirt run was a career-best effort, and she should relish a return to the main track having run on turf in her last two starts. While she is a winner on turf, Ms Hoochie Coochie is better on dirt, and can take this $25k claimer. Infinity of Humor ran poorly last time, but that was in the mud, and she is a threat under fast conditions. Tough Business is another to enter calculations.

Keeneland race 4, 19:38 BST - Cosmo Blue

Cosmo Blue's form stands out in this maiden claimer - in particular his third behind Zingarelli two starts ago - and has a strong chance if reproducing that effort. The unraced U. S. S. Boxer represents strong connections, and would be the biggest threat if fully tuned-up for this debut, while Eye of the Moon goes turf-to-dirt, and also drops into claiming company for the first time.
