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

Churchill Downs Race 3 // 5:58 pm ET

#4 Lot of Spunk (3-1 ML)

Trainer Tom Drury's runners are winning 33% with a $2.66 ROI for every $1 bet since April 22. He's exceptional with horses coming off extended layoffs like this one and facing easier competition in the return. Win bet.

Churchill Downs Race 7 // 7:54 pm ET

#10 Home Base (15-1 ML)

Longshot look to the projected front-runner who should be fastest early in a race loaded with longer-distance types. He's run well at Churchill Downs in the past and his last race was a wake-up toward his better career performances. Win-place bet.
