Ladies cheering
Timeform pick out three bets in the US tonight

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Tampa Bay on Wednesday...

"...still relatively lightly raced and should still have more to offer..."

Timeform on Ponti Scheme

#5 American Deluxe - Tampa Bay R5 (19:06 GMT)

American Deluxe was a decent runner-up in a similar contest to this last time and should give another good account. Native Hawk may emerge as the main threat, while Best Offer can also grab a minor share.

#3 Ponti Scheme - Tampa Bay R8 (20:36 GMT)

Ponti Scheme hasn't been quite at her best on her last two starts but is still relatively lightly raced and should still have more to offer. She is taken to come out on top ahead of Jermyn Street and Classy Woman.

#5 Irish Major - Tampa Bay R9 (21:06 GMT)

The versatile Irish Major was just beaten narrowly on dirt last time but is equally effective on turf and ought to run a big race switched back to the inner track in this $16k claimer. Stevis Man is another who should go well, with Moonlight Mischief also likely to be on the premises.
