Timeform US SmartPlays: Wednesday October 21
Timeform's US team provide the best bets on Wednesday.
"A competitive $16k claimer to round off the Keeneland card, and plenty can be given some sort of chance, with Abbaa and Defer Heaven topping the list."
Keeneland race 3 (19:12 BST) - Alzanbaq
A maiden claimer that seems to revolve around two horses dropping from maiden special weight company, Alzanbaq and Park Ranger, with preference for the former. Although Alzanbaq looks more exposed than his main rival, his form looks marginally stronger, and he could well be better value than Park Ranger.
Keeneland race 4 (19:45 BST) - Dissident
A measure of the regard that Dissident is held in can be seen by the fact that he competed at G3 level last time while still a maiden. He acquitted himself well in sixth that day and should get off the mark dropped back into the maiden special weight ranks here.
Keeneland race 8 (21:57 BST) - Bull Dozer (LAY)
A competitive $16k claimer to round off the Keeneland card, and plenty can be given some sort of chance, with Abbaa and Defer Heaven topping the list. The best way to play this race is to take on the likely favourite Bull Dozer, who should be laid at around 3/1 or less.
