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

"Gambler’s Ghost won a six-furlong claimer at ChurchillDowns two starts back before finishing well beaten in an allowance optional claimer..."

Alliteration should have come on for her first run since February, and the step back up to a mile or thereabouts should suit, but even so she still looks to have a fair amount to find on form with several of her rivals and looks to have been very cautiously priced at 2.6 in the third race (18.20 GMT) at Aqueduct. At around those odds, she is a lay.

Indy Breeze has been installed as 2.2 favourite for the third race (18.27 GMT) at Tampa Bay but the claims of Ms Hoochie Coochie are just as strong and the latter looks value at the anticipated 4. The selection is back under the care of Joe Woodward, for whom she won at Mountaineer and Keeneland earlier this year, and she should really be shorter in her bid to make it four wins on the trot.

Gambler's Ghost won a six-furlong claimer at ChurchillDowns two starts back before finishing well beaten in an allowance optional claimer, but that form doesn't entitle him in our opinion to start as short as the forecast 3.5 in the sixth (19.50 GMT) at Aqueduct. He looks the likely leader, but there are plenty of others in here with strong form claims.
