Xpressbet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his top plays for Thursday.
Aqueduct Race 4 -- 2:18 pm ET
#2 Actualize (3-1 ML)
Showed spurts of talent in his only start and meets a field loaded with first-time starters and unknown quantities. Red-hot trainer Charlie Baker (5-for-12 in January at Aqueduct) now takes over the training. Win bet.
Gulfstream Park Race 6 -- 3:05 pm ET
#2 Giverny (4-1 ML)
Filly spent much of her debut making up for a troubled start last March. She's trained well for the comeback and is bred to excel on turf in her first grass attempt. Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott won with 3 of 8 starters last week at Gulfstream Park. Win bet.
