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

Pimlico Race 6 (3:29 p.m. ET)

#9 Opeongo (6-1 ML)

Lightning-fast from the gate, look for this one to try and go wire-to-wire in a 5-furlong turf sprint. High-percentage Charles Town-based trainer Kevin Patterson brings this one to Pimlico off a long layoff and likely has him ready to run lights-out. Win bet. Daily Double 9-5 to next pick.

Pimlico Race 7 (4:02 p.m. ET)

#5 Jerusalema (12-1 ML)

She beat older fillies and mares last time out at Charles Town and faces strictly 3-year-olds today. The pace is expected to be fast, which sets up her late run. Jockey-trainer tandem hits 32 percent and this filly gets in light with the apprentice jockey weight allowance. Win-place bet.
