Timeform's US Team pick out three bets on Thursday
Aqueduct race 5 (20:32 BST) - Shotgun Love
Shotgun Love could manage only a third-place finish last time, but that form looks strong in the context of this New York-bred allowance contest, and this consistent five-year-old mare can almost be guaranteed to run her race. Her early pace could well see her in an uncontested lead, also.
Penn National race 4 (00:22 BST) - Lutheran Miss (LAY)
A competitive contest in which the forecast favourite, Lutheran Miss, could well be a good thing if recapturing her best form. However, she has been beaten a combined total of more than 50 lengths in four starts since her last win, and the percentage call is to oppose her on the exchange.
Penn National race 5 (00:49 BST) - Courtage
With the traditional European weight-for-age scale not in use in the US, three-year-olds tend to be at somewhat of a disadvantage against older opposition at this time of year. With that in mind, it looks worth taking Courtage over her year-younger rival, Honeydukes, in this maiden special weight.
