Timeform's US team bring you three bets from Keeneland

Timeform's US team have found three bets at Keeneland on Friday...

Trainer Chad Brown has an enviable record with ex-French fillies, and he looks to have another good one on his hands in the shape of Danza Cavallo

Keeneland race 4 (19:38 BST) - Contestant

Contestant is a consistent filly, who is fully effective over this 8.5f trip, and looks the one to be with dropping from allowance level into the claiming ranks. Hadarra was an all-the-way winner in similar company last time out, and rates the main danger, while Little Ariel comes here in good form, and is another to consider.

Keeneland race 5 (20:09 BST) - Stormy Rocit

Stormy Rocit has a layoff to overcome, but has plenty of class, and the booking of Javier Castellano takes the eye. That suggests she should be plenty sharp enough for this return. Forest Elf has a win and a good placed effort from her last two starts, and is a threat to the selection. In a fair contest, Great Minds and Rockin Boogie also enter the equation.

Keeneland race 8 (21:42 BST) - Danza Cavallo

Trainer Chad Brown has an enviable record with ex-French fillies, and he looks to have another good one on his hands in the shape of Danza Cavallo. Second in G3 company on her only US start to date, Danza Cavallo looks sure to build on that. Sistas Stroll is already a G3 winner, and has placed form at the top level, while Bocaiuva is another smart ex-French import in an intriguing race.
