Timeform's US team provide you with bets from Mountaineer and Zia Park...

Johnny Joe is not a particularly original selection in the opening race (23:00 GMT) at Mountaineer but the veteran has plenty going for him down in grade at a track where has a good record...

With racing at Turf Paradise having only recently started again, our first two bets come from Zia Park beginning with Torrid Dream in the ninth race (21:59 GMT), a claimer over five and a half furlongs. Torrid Dream is shipping in from Albuquerque where he has won twice this year and was only just touched off two starts ago. A below-par effort last time has to be forgiven but her trainer Justin Evans has his string in corking form right now and the selection rates value at the forecast 3.5 on the Morning Line given the amount she has in hand on our ratings. 

In the penultimate race (22:55 GMT) at Zia Madonna Who is taken to upset the forecast favourite Stormin Creek. The latter is forecast favourite at 3.5 and appeared to put up a significantly-improved effort last time over the shorter five and a half here when a 15-1 shot but the time was a modest one and a couple of the others also seemed to run above themselves so the performance might not be what it seems. Wipe that race from her record and she has only an average chance. Form rival Madonna Who comes here at the top of her form, takes a decent drop in class and ought to get her own way in front and all that combined makes her the more appealing proposition.      

Johnny Joe is not a particularly original selection in the opening race (23:00 GMT) at Mountaineer but the veteran has plenty going for him down in grade at a track where has a good record. For one of his age and lowly ability, Johnny Joe is remarkably consistent and that reliability ought to stand him in good stead up against this motley crew of hit-and-miss bargain-basement claimers. He hasn't won since last October but then again hasn't had an opportunity as straightforward as this, either.
