Jeremy Plonk's Horse Racing picks for Thursday 7/7

By Jeremy Plonk  (Xpressbet Editor-in-chief) 

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

Canterbury Park Race 1 (6:10 p.m. ET/3:10 p.m. PT)

#4 Johnny Up (5-2 ML)

Top trainer Mac Robertson also has the morning line favorite in this race, but it's the 'other' entrant that intrigues me most. Johnny Up drops in class into the claiming ranks for the first time, and it's this runner, not the favorite, that Robertson's go-to jockey Alex Canchari rides. Win bet.

Canterbury Park Race 4 (7:40 p.m. ET/4:40 p.m. PT)

#3 Hurts So Bad (9-2 ML)

The bulk of these maidens exit the same races May 26 and June 15. Instead of trying to figure out whose turn it may be among those who have failed in the turf maiden ranks, take the fresh face moving from dirt sprints. It's another player for the potent combo of Robertson & Canchari. Win bet.

A Numbers Game: Be careful betting baseball games right now, if they don’t involve teams still trying to make the playoffs. Teams that have clinched or teams that are completely out of it will be approaching games far differently. View more tips.
