XpressBet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his best bets for Thursday.
Churchill Downs Race No. 3 (2 p.m. ET)
#3 Shaniah (2-1 ML)
Trainer Mike Tomlinson exits a big week at Churchill in which 4 of 5 starters finished in the Exacta. He's got 2 shots on Thursday, and we'll try them both. Shaniah has knocked on the door with 5 straight top-3 finishes and should love the extra distance compared to last time. Win bet.
Churchill Downs Race No. 5 (3:01 p.m. ET)
#4 Iberville (7-2 ML)
The second of 2 Thursday entrants for trainer Mike Tomlinson, who exits a big week at Churchill in which 4 of 5 starters finished in the Exacta. Iberville finished third in a three-way photo in a similar race at Churchill in late September when last seen. The barn has them all raring to go right now. Win bet.
