Timeform US SmartPlays: Saturday November 8

Timeform's US team have found three bets for you

Timeform's US team bring you bets from Delta Downs and Zia Park...

In the sixth race (21:35 GMT) at Zia Park Mucho Macho Uno stands out on recent and overall form and looks the one to be on. This low-level claimer over six furlongs on the dirt has attracted a field of seven among whom Covert Ops besides Mucho Macho Uno also won last time out, while Preferred Mandate was a good second last time after winning its previous start. Covert Ops recorded a decent time when coming from the back last time, but the likely pace scenario here favours Mucho Macho Uno whose own times are second to none and he can assert in the stretch for his in-form trainer Justin Evans. 

Heavens Hall takes a big class drop in the sixth race (02:09 GMT) at Delta Downs and Henry Johnson Jr's mare can take advantage. The daughter of Graeme Hall doesn't have the most appealing form figures having finished fourth and sixth on her last two starts, but they were on the turf at Louisiana Downs in allowance affairs and this claiming affair on the dirt is a much easier assignment altogether back at a track where she won twice at this trip around the turn of the year. Her 88-day absence isn't a worry seeing as she won first time back from a similar absence last year and she looks to have every chance of making all the running. 

In the last race (04:00 GMT) at Delta Downs, Sheered looks a dubious favourite. This five-furlong claimer for fillies and mares looks a wide-open affair with little between several of the runners on their best form. Likely early leader Who Dat Hondo Cat has to defy a three-month absence and a rise in grade, but in her favour she is an out-and-out sprinter which can't be said of Sheered who has been racing over as far as a mile this season and looked to find this five-furlong trip too much on the sharp side when last tried at it back in January. Add in the fact that she also comes here back from a three-month break and her trainer is on the American cold list and her chance isn't as obvious as the bullish Morning Line forecast.
