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

"Change Maker started his career well with a win at Tampa in February but it has been all downhill since and though he has a clear chance on ‘back’ form..."

Filberto made nearly all in a maiden claimer here three starts ago posting a good timefigure and has good prospects of leading all the way this time in the third race (19.15 BST) at Delaware. Since that win, Filberto has run twice on turf, winning a maiden claimer before finding the opposition too hot last time, but this race looks a fair bit weaker and there looks nothing to match him for early speed.

Compulsive looks a lay at the forecast 2.8 in the fifth (20.15 BST) at Delaware. The horse is now back under the care of Scott Lake who trained him to two wins around the turn of the year but his first run back for the yard here last month was unpromising finishing last of 6 and though he drops in class here that's quite likely because he's lost some of his ability.

Change Maker started his career well with a win at Tampa in February but it has been all downhill since and though he has a clear chance on 'back' form in the opener (00.00 BST) at Mountaineer he has finished tailed off in his last two starts. New trainer Susan Anderson isn't known for her exploits with horses on their first start for her and it remains to be seen how he will react to blinkers. He looks too short at 3.5.
