Timeform's US team pick out the best bets on Sunday.

"Ex-Aidan O’Brien-trained War Envoy cut little ice in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile last time, but has a fine chance of getting his new Stateside career off to a winning start here."

Tampa Bay Downs race 4 (18:56 GMT) - Valuable Charmer

Valuable Charmer was only sixth on a synthetic surface last time, but had previously been a convincing winner on dirt, and should appreciate returning to that surface today. He can get the better of Constraint, who needed to drop into the maiden claiming ranks to get off the mark.

Tampa Bay Downs race 6 (19:56 GMT) - War Envoy

Ex-Aidan O'Brien-trained War Envoy cut little ice in the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile last time, but has a fine chance of getting his new Stateside career off to a winning start here. Having joined Wesley Ward, War Envoy looks to have been found a gilt-edged opportunity in this turf allowance event.

Aqueduct race 9 (21:20 GMT) - Stevie's Moonshot

Stevie's Moonshot has been hot property in the claiming ranks of late, running well when third for a new trainer last time, after which he was claimed by today's handler, Jason Servis. Sugar Gold (if getting a run from the reserve list) and Jai Alai look the main dangers.
