Jockey Armando Martinez will be looking to improve on his overall moderate strike rate on L B Gold who is likely to take a lot of beating tonight. He’s been running well in defeat lately & holds most of tonight’s opposition on recent form. Golden oldie Super Charlie doesn’t know how to run a bad race & is rated the main danger.
October Won has showed enough in defeat to suggest he’s well up to winning a weak contest like this. You’d need to be brave to support a horse simply because it seems to be the best of a poor bunch though. We think an each-way play on Coil And Strike represents better value. Larry Donlin’s filly is capable of better than she’s shown recently & she could well get in the mix at a double figure price.
Talk Big Money has been running well in defeat here lately & Kelli Martinez’s gelding can be expected to give another decent account. Prince Olaf gets our vote after some recent solid performances.
Unshackled Cross impressed when opening his account at the fourth time of asking latest. Thunder Box went down on his shield when supported on his most recent start. He can gain compensation for his loyal followers here.
Reversal of fortune impressed over course & distance on his most recent start & he can be expected to put in another decent effort tonight. We prefer the chances of Bold Bulldog who is having his first start for Gerry Gourneau. Bold Bulldog has respectable form in better races than this at other courses & should be primed for a big from an ideal inside gate.
Southernaire is likely to be popular after recent successes at Delta Downs. Legendary Larry could be overpriced now after flopping when supported at Delta Downs last time out. He has won 5 of his 14 All Weather starts & it’ll be no surpirise if he picks up some prize money here.
Popcorn For Eddie has been in the winning groove recently & looks set to add to his tally tonight. Scooters Boy is on a double mission after scoring last week & is rated the main threat.
Saygoodnightgracie is sure to be popular after scoring in an Allowance race latest. She looks sure to put in another top effort from a decent draw tonight. Lovesaflyin could be worth chancing at a decent price in a wide open looking contest.
A very weak claimer to round off the card. Hyper Drive has a decent overall profile and some respectable form in much better class races than this. Macandales has an ideal inside gate draw & is having his first run for Isai Gonzalez. He has snippets of form at Delta Downs and is rated the main danger.
