Timeform's US team provide you with three bets from Turfway Park on Sunday...

Turfway race 5, 20:06 GMT - Borealis Way

After extreme cold forced the abandonment of yesterday's meeting at Turfway, today's card should get the go-ahead, as the forecast is for mild improvement. Our first bet at the frigid Kentucky venue is Borealis Way, who ran well when second last time out, and should be capable of going one better in this $5k claimer. Rocky Bear - also a runner-up last time out - can give the selection most to do.

Turfway race 6, 20:35 GMT - Niederzel

Niederzel was a little disappointing when finishing only fifth last time out, but low-level claiming horses of the type generally found at Turfway are not the most consistent, and it's worth giving him another chance to confirm the positive impression he'd made when third on his previous start. Niederzel had also been running creditably in allowance optional claimers earlier in the winter, and would look a big price at 3/1 if he comes back to that form.

Turfway race 8, 21:33 GMT - Spanish Pipedream

Yesterday's abandoned feature race at Turfway, a $75k stakes contest, has been rescheduled for today, and last year's Royal Ascot Queen Mary fourth Spanish Pipedream looks to hold a significant class edge on her eight rivals. That effort behind the likes of Anthem Alexander and Tiggy Wiggy is by far the best form on offer and it will be a surprise if she isn't capable of taking this. Her price won't be overly enticing, but Spanish Pipedream is by far the most likely winner on the card.
