Two of our US bets run at Keeneland
Two of our US bets run at Keeneland

Timeform's US team bring you bets from Aqueduct and Keeneland on Thursday...

Keeneland race 3 (19:07 BST) - Call Sign

Not the strongest maiden special weight, and Godolphin's Call Sign is fancied to get off the mark at the fourth time of asking. A good second at Tampa Bay last time out, this isn't a great deal stronger, and Call Sign has a decent chance of going one better. Wildlife Artist's best form has been on turf, but he would be the main threat if able to reproduce that on dirt.

Aqueduct race 3 (19:22 BST) - Colour Party

Colour Party - an ex-John Gosden trainee - makes her first start for Christophe Clement in this turf stakes race, and a chance is taken that she will improve significantly on the form she showed in the UK. Clement has a great record with this kind of import, and the fact she is pitched straight into this company is encouraging. Consumer Credit is likely to be a short price, and is clearly the one to beat, but she is pretty much exposed now.

Keeneland race 4 (19:38 BST) - Kitten's Angel

The former Dermot Weld-trained Kitten's Angel showed some promise on her lone start in Ireland last year, and hasn't really progressed in two Stateside starts since, but is given one more chance in this fairly weak turf maiden. Todd Pletcher's Fine Instincts goes dirt-to-turf, and is a danger if handling the switch, while Mighty Moon is still open to progression on just her third start.
