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

Oaklawn Race 2 (2:29 pm ET)
#9 Summer Storm (5-2)
After dominant wins in January and February, this one returns fresh and since moved to the barn of hot trainer Chris Hartman. Expect the roll to continue despite a mild raise in class to face tougher competition. Win bet.
Santa Anita Race 3 (5:05 pm ET)
#7 Gotham Desire (8-1 ML)
Takes on easier competition while getting back to a preferred turf surface. Don't let poor last effort on turf fool you, but that should help keep an overlay price. Trainer Ed Moger Jr.'s Santa Anita runners have been close and hinting at a breakout. Win-place bet.
