Timeform US SmartPlays: Monday March 30
Timeform's US team pick out three bets from Mountaineer on Monday.
"Glory Game made all the running and ran away with a weaker race last time out, but the TimeformUS speed figure he earned that day suggests he is well capable of stepping up in class here."
Mountaineer race 3, 00:44 BST - Girl Scout Cookie
Girl Scout Cookie is the subject of a positive trainer change, and ships to Mountaineer from the much more competitive surroundings of Southern Florida. We expect her to show major improvement in this maiden claimer. Cowgirl Marianne and Vinari are both entered for trainer Edward Coulston, although only one of them is likely to run. In our opinion, Vinari is the stronger of the pair.
Mountaineer race 8, 02:34 BST - Cup of Joy
Cup of Joy was a good second in a similar contest to today's last time out, and is fancied to go one better in a competitive event. Cuco Trejo also ran well in a second-place finish on his last outing, and will be on the premises if reproducing that run, while Bad Student hasn't been in top of form of late, but is capable of contending at his best.
Mountaineer race 9, 02:56 BST - Glory Game
Glory Game made all the running and ran away with a weaker race last time out, but the TimeformUS speed figure he earned that day suggests he is well capable of stepping up in class here. First Verse is returning from a long layoff, but is a threat if reproducing form the form he showed before that absence. Classic Bobby has been running in stronger company at Delta Downs, but the trainer switch he gets today isn't a particularly positive one.
