Xpressbet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his top plays for Thursday.
Aqueduct Race 6 (2:44 pm ET)
#7 Big Al's Gal (3-1 ML)
Dominant winner in her first start since coming to trainer Rob Atras, look for her to win right back against slightly tougher competition. Though her best races at come at Belmont, her current form ought to be enough to succeed on the move to Aqueduct. Win bet.
Turfway Park Race 2 (6:46 pm ET)
#1 Till Then (8-1 ML)
Turfway Park specialist has won 3 of 4 races on the synthetic surface locally, and returns to his favorite track for the first time under the care of new trainer Eric Reid. Shrewd claim/purchase by Reid recently with Turfway in mind and a big workout leading into this. Win-place bet.
