Xpressbet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his top plays for Thursday.

Gulfstream Park Race 5 (2:28 pm ET)

#2 Glider (10-1 ML)

Longer-priced runner of 2 entries for trainer Mark Casse in this race, a barn that has excelled with distance races on the new Tapeta surface. This debut colt cost $200,000 at auction and is well-meant with Casse's go-to rider of late, Edwin Gonzalez. Win bet. Exacta box 2-1 with stablemate Men on the Hill, who could go favored.

Gulfstream Park Race 9 (4:32 pm ET)

#2 Big Daddy Dave (4-1)

Inside-drawn early speed should be difficult to catch if he gets the jump on Divine Leader, a rival who is fast early but has never run on the grass and may not show the same ability. Big Daddy Dave should improve in his second start since a lengthy break. Win bet.
