Timeform's US team advise three bets for tonight's racing at Turf Paradise and Mountaineer Park...
"Beach Fever switches to turf for the first time in this maiden optional claimer, and has a great chance of claiming his first victory if reproducing the fairly useful efforts he put up on the Del Mar Polytrack last summer."
Turf Paradise race 3, 21:21 GMT - Beach Fever
Beach Fever switches to turf for the first time in this maiden optional claimer, and has a great chance of claiming his first victory if reproducing the fairly useful efforts he put up on the Del Mar Polytrack last summer. His dirt form hasn't been up to that level, but there's every chance he can improve with the surface change. Stable companion It'saboutjazz looks the main danger.
Mountaineer Park race 6, 00:50 GMT - Mello Kisses
Only six runners in this allowance optional claimer, but it's a competitive heat nonetheless, and the vote goes to Mello Kisses, who ships in from the slightly tougher surroundings of Turfway Park. Lady Henrietta returned from a long layoff to win last time out and is feared, while Bloody Smart was in good form back in the autumn, but hasn't raced since November.
Mountaineer Park race 7, 01:12 - Mac the Man
Mac the Man is another Turfway invader, and looks to have been found a good opportunity in this one-mile allowance contest. A winner last time out on Polytrack, the switch to dirt should be no issue (third over C&D last year) for Jeffrey Greenhill's five-year-old gelding. Make a Toast also ships in from Turfway, but his form isn't quite as good as Mac the Man's, and Collymore Place won last time out, but this race is stronger.
