Timeform's US team focus on the racing from Aqueduct for Sunday's best bets

This race isn't as strong as the numbers suggest and it is probably best to back Discreet Force rather than take a lay of Mama Zee...

Kibble has made four starts, but only one of those has been on dirt, and that piece of form is about the best on offer in the dirt maiden claimer that is carded as race 2 at Aqueduct (17:49 GMT). That particular run came on Kibble's debut at Saratoga in August where she was a creditable seventh behind the subsequently Grade 1-placed filly Feathered. Her next three starts haven't matched that performance, but they all took place on turf, and Kibble should appreciate stepping back on to the main track.

In race 5 at Aqueduct (19:16 GMT), Hurry Up Alan goes first-off-the-claim for the prolific Sydney Dutrow barn, and looks overpriced on the Morning Line. Hurry Up Alan's best form is more than good enough to be competitive in here, and he gets a handy 4 lb off the likely favourite North Ocean, who was an impressive winner last time, but did get an uncontested lead on the favoured inside part of the track.

Mama Zee was another who appeared to benefit from racing on an inside-favoured track last time out, and she looks worth taking on in the final race at Aqueduct (race 9, 21:12 GMT). Despite the eleven-runner field, though, this race isn't as strong as the numbers suggest and it is probably best to back Discreet Force rather than take a lay of Mama Zee. While this one hasn't been the easiest to train, he has plenty of ability, and looks a good fit in this $10k claimer.
