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

"...Konawa Twister can come out on top in race 7 at Sam Houston (21:42 GMT), a $7.5k claimer run over an extended mile."

On a quiet day in North America, today's best bet comes in the one-mile maiden claimer that is carded as race 6 at Turf Paradise (22:14 GMT). Rosa Divina has been plying her trade at the better tracks in California, and faces her easiest task today in what is a weak-looking contest. Making her first start for Robertino Diodoro, perennially one of Turf Paradise's top trainers, she should prove very difficult to beat.

Diodoro also has a decent chance of taking the following race (22:42 GMT), a one-mile turf claimer, with Rare Courage, who makes his second start since being claimed by his current stable. Possibly at his best over a bit further than this mile trip, Rare Courage should get a decent pace to run at with the likes of outsiders Fierce Act, Dr Williams and Keep Me Posted in the field, who all tend to race forwardly. That should ensure a decent stamina test which should play to the selection's strengths.

Earlier in the evening, Konawa Twister can come out on top in race 7 at Sam Houston (21:42 GMT), a $7.5k claimer run over an extended mile. A good second at Remington Park last time out, this race isn't a great deal stronger, and Konawa Twister is likely to be able to get a good pitch from his draw in stall three. Felino could provide the stiffest opposition, but his draw in stall seven is not ideal at this two-turn distance.
