XpressBet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his best bets for Thursday.

Del Mar Race No. 2 (5:32 p.m. ET/2:32 p.m. PT)

#2 Ridin'thestormout (4-1 ML)

Excellent post draw for debut runner who showed good gate ability in morning workout videos at and a high leg action on dirt that suggests turf will be her best surface. Gets on the grass and trainer John Sadler has been pulling all the right strings lately at Del Mar. Win bet.

Del Mar Race No. 7 (8:03 p.m. ET/5:03 p.m. PT)

#2 Kattah (6-1 ML)

Trainer Simon Callaghan's runners took off last week with 2 wins and a third-place finish from just 4 starters at Del Mar. Among those were a $27 victory and a 9-1 in the money. Kattath was an even-running fourth last time against slightly tougher competition and should be effective against this level. Win-Place bet.
