Timeform US SmartPlays: Saturday August 29

Timeform have found three US bets for you
Timeform have found three US bets for you

Timeform's US team provide you with a bet from three different venues on Saturday.

Maiden claimers are usually races where the obvious play is a lay rather than a back but Flying Slew looks to have very persuasive credentials in the sixth race (20.45 BST) at Delaware

Monmouth 19:48 - Super Spender

There's not much between Golden Story and Super Spender on form in the fifth race (19.48 BST) at Monmouth but the latter is forecast to be the bigger price of the pair and is the selection. Jane Cibelli's three-year-old has won two of his three races over five furlongs on the turf and ran well when second in the other last time. Golden Story is a tough rival at this level but looks to have been put in a bit short on the Morning Line.


Saratoga 20:10 - Dame Dorothy

American Pharoah and Flintshire are the star attractions on a top Saratoga card but neither is a betting proposition at the forecast prices and Dame Dorothy appeals more in the G1 Ballerina Stakes (20.10 BST). Todd Pletcher's four-year-old has form over further but is compiling an excellent record at this specialist seven-furlong trip and isn't beholden to any particular type of tactic, two attributes that should come in handy given this race looks set to be run at a scorching gallop and test stamina.


Delaware 20:45 - Flying Slew

Maiden claimers are usually races where the obvious play is a lay rather than a back but Flying Slew looks to have very persuasive credentials in the sixth race (20.45 BST) at Delaware. With only two runs under her belt and the second an improvement on the first she probably has a bit more to give and there's nothing wrong with the form of her latest effort with the two horses she split winning next time out. Forecast odds of 5 look generous.
