Timeform's US team pick out bets from Aqueduct and Penn National on Thursday.

"Forbidden Story shaped with plenty of promise on his debut, leading until halfway before fading late on."

Aqueduct race 3, 19:22 BST - Salisbury Knight

Salisbury Knight made his first start after being claimed by the prolific David Jacobson stable last time out, and although disappointing that day, the muddy track may not have suited and he can bounce back here. Brendan G was a good second on his latest start and is a threat, while Kulboyz is also respected.

Aqueduct race 5, 20:24 BST - Here's Zealicious

Here's Zealicious ran well in starter allowance company last time, and this allowance optional claimer isn't a great deal stronger. He could be a value in a competitive heat. Jazzmine Gem won a weaker race last time out, but the TimeformUS speed figure was respectable, and Pennymine is a consistent operator at around this level.

Penn National race 7, 01:43 BST - Forbidden Story

Forbidden Story shaped with plenty of promise on his debut, leading until halfway before fading late on. The $12k maiden claimer is a further drop in class and he can take advantage. Infinityxinfinity is still a maiden after nine starts but should run his race, while Cat 'n Crunch is entitled to improve on just his third start.
