Timeform's US team have three bets for you on Thursday...

A weak maiden claimer and Downton Alley makes plenty of appeal on just her fourth start...

Aqueduct race 2, 17:49 GMT - Coral Beach

Coral Beach has won his last two starts - both over this 6f distance - and is fancied to complete the hat-trick for trainer Todd Pletcher and Jockey Jose Ortiz. Partytime Chill was an impressive winner of a maiden claimer last time out and comes into the reckoning in this stronger contest, while Omagoddonna finished a creditable second at a similar level on her latest start.

Aqueduct race 4, 18:48 GMT - Subtle Humor

Subtle Humor returns from a layoff and drops in class for the red-hot barn of trainer David Jacobson. She should get enough pace to run at in the 6f claiming contest. Lost in Success has been below form of late, but is another taking a class-drop, and may bounce back. Bella the Bandit hasn't been seen since last summer, but enters the equation on her best form.

Aqueduct race 5, 19:18 GMT - Downton Alley

A weak maiden claimer and Downton Alley makes plenty of appeal on just her fourth start. A good second last time out, a repeat of that effort puts her right in the mix. Kool Charli has been consistent but seems to lack resolution, and is a place candidate, while Sister Charm has been behind both Downton Alley and Kool Charli previously, and may have to settle for a minor place once more.
