Timeform US SmartPlays: Thursday December 4

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

Timeform's US team bring you a bet from three different venues on Thursday...

The maiden claimer that closes the Aqueduct card (21:12 GMT) contains a few relatively exposed types, including the likely favourite Perfect Freud, and he is taken on with Ozone, who is making just his third start. Ozone has plenty of early pace and goes first-off-the-claim for a barn that has plenty of success with this type. With Aqueduct now staging races on the tight inner dirt circuit, Ozone's early speed and inside draw could prove potent weapons.

Front-running Jaguar Ridge has been pressured on the lead in his last two starts, finishing second and third, but the pace scenario of race 6 at Hawthorne (21:25 GMT) looks much more favourable. With an ideal draw in stall one, Jaguar Ridge should be able to bounce out and set his own fractions in this low-level claimer. While his best form has been on polytrack, this six-year-old is almost as effective on dirt, and can show that here.

Cinderella's Mind has been in good form at Parx, winning her last two starts convincingly, and she can complete a hat-trick of wins in race 6 at Penn National (01:16 GMT). Main danger Gem City Gal has run well when finishing runner-up on her last two starts, but is likely to have to improve again to challenge the likes of Cinderella's Mind, who is a confident choice.

Timeform US SmartPlays:
Aqueduct race 9 (21:12 GMT) win back #2 OZONE at 5.59/2 or longer
Hawthorne race 6 (21:25 GMT) win back #1 JAGUAR RIDGE at 4.3100/30 or longer
Penn National race 6 (01:16 GMT) win back #4 CINDERELLA'S MIND at 3.814/5 or longer
