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

Gulfstream Park Race 3 // 2:01 pm ET

#3 Queen Macha (3-1 ML)

Red-hot trainer Jose Francisco D'Angelo is 10-22 since February 23 at Gulfstream Park and he moves to top rider Jose Ortiz today in an important upgrade in the saddle. Queen Macha moved too soon last time and should finish with a flourish with a better-timed ride. Win bet.

Oaklawn Race 8 // 5:39 pm ET

#2 Goalie (7-2 ML)

After a long cold spell, typically high-percentage trainer Robertino Diodoro's horses have really picked it up at Oaklawn over the past 2 weeks while winning 40% in March. This is his only entrant on the Thursday program. Win bet.
