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

"It is often worth forgiving a horse one bad run, and with that in mind, Rhinestone Diva is worth backing after running poorly as a short-priced favourite last time out."

Penn National race 5 (00:49 BST) - Go Daddy Girl

Go Daddy Girl was an impressive winner of a $4k claimer last time, and is fancied to take this step up to $8k company in her stride. Her time that day suggests she is well capable of competing in here. Dancing Sparks goes first-off-the-claim for new connections, while Sabbath Bay will be much better suited to this company after an outing against allowance opposition last time.

Penn National race 6 (01:16 BST) - Smarts

Smarts shipped from Gulfstream to Pimlico to win a starter allowance contest last time, and can repeat the dose shipping from Pimlico to Penn National in this allowance event. Anthony's Flyer is a threat if ready to go after a layoff, and Nin's Thermometer ran well in a similar race last time; he looks a tad overpriced on the Morning Line.

Penn National race 8 (02:10 BST) - Rhinestone Diva

It is often worth forgiving a horse one bad run, and with that in mind, Rhinestone Diva is worth backing after running poorly as a short-priced favourite last time out; the Morning Line price of 9/2 looks just too big. My Princess Diane also comes off a poor effort, but drops in class, while Gia Scala narrowly missed out last time, and is a big danger.
