Timeform US SmartPlays: Saturday June 21

The best bet on Saturday runs at Belmont Park
The best bet on Saturday runs at Belmont Park

Timeform's US team identify bets from three different venues on Saturday...

Street Girl looks value at the forecast 4.57/2 in the ninth race (22:28 BST) at Belmont. Second place behind Midnight Lucky over this trip at Churchill Downs last time out was no disgrace given that filly is almost certainly the best of her sex in the States at seven furlongs and there is nothing remotely of her calibre in this line up. Street Girl has been something of a bridesmaid over the last year or so but that's more a reflection of the top company she has been keeping than any negative about herself and she can make the most of this rare drop into a Grade 3 event.  

In the fourth at Delaware (19:36 BST) Captainofindustry can make the most of his inside stall. He's run right up to his best in each of his last three starts, winning at Laurel and then recording a career-best timefigure by our reckoning last time out over today's course and distance. His likely prominent position in a race which promises to be run at less than a frantic gallop will also be an advantage and his trainer Juan Vazquez could hardly be in better form. 

In the third race at Penn National (23:54 BST) the in-form Sweet Boo looks to have been priced up rather generously and can win her fourth race of the year. This is a weaker race by some way than the one she won here last time and she looks to hold quite an advantage on recent form. Trainer Mark Salvaggio is running at around a 23% strike rate at Penn National over the past year and shows no sign of letting up. Sweet Boo can run down likely leader Two Dorcas late on.

Delaware race 4 (17:36 BST) win back #1 CAPTAINOFINDUSTRY at 3.613/5 or longer
Belmont race 9 (22:28 BST) win back #10 STREET GIRL at 4.03/1 or longer
