Jeremy Plonk’s Horse Racing picks for 11/27


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

Churchill Downs Race No. 3 (1:59 p.m. ET)
#6 Jingle (6-1 ML)


Trainer Mike Lauer has finished the Churchill meeting strong with $12 and $53 winners already this week, both runners coming via Indianapolis like Jingle. This horse has won over the track at Churchill in the past. Win-Place bet.

Churchill Downs Race No. 8 (4:27 p.m. ET)
#5 Mahaamel (8-1 ML)

Top-3 finishes in 7 of 8 starts and this one might get over the hump with a change of scenery to a hot Joe Sharp barn after being claimed at Keeneland. I like the aggressive placement to protect this under-achiever in a tougher starter allowance race. Win-Place bet.
