Timeform's US team pick out the best bets on Friday.

"Kilo has been off the track for a long time, but his form in maiden special weight company makes him worth chancing as he drops into this much lower class maiden claimer."

Tampa Bay race 4, 18:10 GMT - Really Good Guy (LAY)

Really Good Guy tends to get a few lengths behind in the early stages of his races, which isn't ideal over this five-and-a-half-furlong trip, and he may struggle to justify favouritism here. With several of this field possessing stronger form on Timeform ratings, he looks worth laying. Captain's Game and Toucans Jack head the list of rivals that are capable of denying him.

Aqueduct race 3, 19:18 GMT - Heiko

Heiko switches from turf to dirt, and makes his first start for the David Jacobson stable in this $25k claimer. His past dirt form isn't particularly good, but those starts were a long time ago, and he is much improved now. Second City was a wide-margin winner last time, and makes his first start for a new trainer, while My Adonis was also victorious last time, and enters the reckoning.

Tampa Bay race 9, 20:40 GMT - Kilo

Kilo has been off the track for a long time, but his form in maiden special weight company makes him worth chancing as he drops into this much lower class maiden claimer. In a competitive race, Havlicek, Bob and Jim and Slider are all closely matched, with Havlicek just favoured of that trio on recent form.
