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

"Go Blue Or Go Home was disappointing on turf last time, but is very much a synthetic specialist, and he can bounce back to form on Presque Isle’s Tapeta surface."

Finger Lakes race 2 (18:37 BST) - Marchoso

Marchoso was a front-running winner in similar company last time out and is fancied for a repeat in this $5k claimer. With a nice post on the outside, he should get the perfect trip while racing clear of trouble. Straight Thunder comes here in good form and is the main threat to Marchoso, while Dan the Irishman is a solid performer at this level.

Delaware race 7 (21:15 BST) - Messi

While the equine Messi may not possess as much talent as his football-playing namesake, he is still a useful performer and can take this allowance contest on his first start for the Graham Motion stable. Having previously been trained in Germany, Messi could well make more progression given US conditions and the addition of Lasix.

Presque Isle Downs race 7 (00:55 BST) - Go Blue Or Go Home

Go Blue Or Go Home was disappointing on turf last time, but is very much a synthetic specialist, and he can bounce back to form on Presque Isle's Tapeta surface. In a good renewal of this stakes race, Paso Doble, Rise Up and Sandbar all represent dangers, but have to give weight to the selection.
