Timeform's US team bring you bets from Saratoga and Penn National on Thursday evening.

"...and this is a move that his trainer, Heather Hollahan, is particularly adept with."

Saratoga race 7 (21:18 BST) - Cool Comfort

Cool Comfort ran a creditable third on dirt following a layoff last time and now switches to turf - arguably her most favoured surface. Dot Product has been in consistent form of late, while Pink Freud Live is still open to progression after just six starts.

Penn National race 1 (23:00 BST) - Mandy's Punch (LAY)

Mandy's Punch has been installed Morning Line favourite for this contest, but that is probably more to do with the record of her prolific trainer than what she has achieved on the track of late. Most of this seven-strong field possess comparable form and she looks worth laying at what should be a fairly short price.

Penn National race 3 (23:54 BST) - Good Chemistry

Good Chemistry drops in class having been running creditably in higher value claimers, and this is a move that his trainer, Heather Hollahan, is particularly adept with. Based on the betting forecast, Citi's Barometer looks his main danger, but we prefer the claims Open Ice Hit and Back Forty.

Timeform US SmartPlays:

Win Back #2 COOL COMFORT in race 7 at Saratoga (21:18 BST)
Win Lay #2 MANDY'S PUNCH in race 1 at Penn National (23:00 BST)
Win Back #6 GOOD CHEMISTRY in race 3 at Penn National (23:54 BST)
