Timeform US SmartPlays: Sunday May 18

Timeform's US team have three bets for you
Timeform's US team have three bets for you

Timeform's US team bring you bets from three different venues...

One horse stands out in race 3 at Woodbine (19:04 BST), and that is Neesa. This filly returned from a break of 152 days with a massively improved performance last time, form that has been franked since. When a horse shows that sort improvement from two to three they are usually worth following, and Neesa definitely looks overpriced at her forecast odds of 5.5.

Redfoxey Dorothy possesses plenty of early speed and could well get the lead all to herself in race 6 at Monmouth (20:09 BST). She comes into this race on the back of an impressive win last time out at Penn National, where she made all, passing the winning line seven lengths clear of her nearest pursuer. This is a step up in class for Redfoxey Dorothy but the manner of her previous win, and the TimeformUS speed figure she earned that day, suggest she can take it in her stride.

A decent case can be made for every one of Swiss Army Wife's four rivals in the closing race at Presque Isles Downs (01:20 BST). In fact, her Timeform form ratings are by some way the lowest in the field, and she would have to show significant improvement to record a win here. Throw in the fact that she is untested on a synthetic surface and her Morning Line odds of 3.0 look way too short.

Timeform US Smart Plays:
Woodbine race 3 (19:04 BST) win back #6 NEESA at 5.39/2 or longer
Monmouth race 6 (20:09 BST) win back #3 REDFOXEY DOROTHY at 4.3100/30 or longer
Presque Isle Downs race 8 (01:20 BST) win lay #3 SWISS ARMY WIFE at 4.03/1 or shorter
