Timeform US SmartPlays: Sunday December 21

Timeform's US team have found you two backs and a lay on Sunday...

The best bet on today's North American cards is Vanity Feature, who runs in the six-furlong allowance contest carded as race 8 at Turfway Park (21:33 GMT). This five-year-old gelding has run creditably in stronger races than this on his last two starts, both of those on dirt at Churchill Downs, but he is equally effective on polytrack, the surface which he encounters today. This consistent type should give a very good account.

In the preceding race at Turfway (21:04 GMT), a one-mile maiden, Civility Pledge looks like being a spot of value against the likely favourite Deep Thought. Although still a maiden after fourteen starts, Civility Pledge has been running consistently in  contests with more depth than this one, and there doesn't appear to be a great deal wrong with his attitude. He can get the better of Deep Thought in what looks a two-horse race.

It looks worth taking on Busta Twist in the closing race at Turf Paradise (23:07 GMT), given his form is far from the strongest in this contest, and he is likely to represent poor value as most from the barn of Mike Chambers do. With less early pace than a few of his speedier rivals in here, Busta Twist should be laid at anything around 4.5 in what is a competitive-looking low-level claiming race.

Turfway Park race 7 (21:04 GMT) win back #7 CIVILITY PLEDGE at 4.03/1 or longer
Turfway Park race 8 (21:33 GMT) win back #8 VANITY FEATURE at 3.613/5 or longer
Turf Paradise race 8 (23:07 GMT) win lay #10 BUSTA TWIST at 4.57/2 or shorter
