Jeremy Plonk's Best Bets for Thursday (8-5)

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

Del Mar Race 2 (5:30 pm ET)

#5 Mahi Mahi (6-1 ML)

Jockey Kyle Frey has been stellar on the Del Mar turf this summer, winning 31% with a crazy $2.91 ROI for every $1 bet. Mahi Mahi has never raced on turf, but is bred for it, and her natural speed on dirt should allow her to break fast and get over to the rail or two-path with little speed to her inside. Win bet.

Del Mar Race 5 (7:00 pm ET)

#8 Consider Me Gone (7-2 ML)

Trainer Peter Eurton's runners caught fire last week with 3 wins from 7 starts at Del Mar. This filly stretched out to the 1-mile distance nicely last time with a second-place finish at Los Alamitos and will appreciate the shorter stretch run at Del Mar when she turns for home. Win bet.
