Horse Racing Tips: The five best bets at Gulfstream Park tonight

Paddy Power's Graham Byrne reveals his five top tips from a bumper race card at the Florida venue



6pm – Strella’s War @ 11/4

We get going with a mile and ½ furlong race on the turf and Paddy is giving a free Power Up if you have a £/€10 bet on this race. We are also paying out for the first four places.

Strella’s War was third in her latest outing here, in a better race, and is likely to benefit from the early pace.

Look for this nicely-bred daughter of Declaration Of War to make her presence felt late under the in-form Luis Saez.

7.07pm – More Than Usual @ 4/1

Five furlongs on the turf for the three-year-olds now and we are going money back if your horse finishes second, third or fourth in this race.

There’s not a lot of decent form on offer in this relatively inexperienced field. So, with that brilliant offer in mind, it may be worth chancing that the drop back in trip and company can do the trick for More Than Usual.

Saffie Joseph turns the selection out just seven days after running at this venue and it is hoped that this three-furlong drop in trip can pay off if the selection is able to stay with the early pace.

7.39pm – Take Charge Again @ 4/1

Six furlongs on the dirt this time and it’s another extra place race.

Take Charge Again disappointed when sent off favourite in her latest run at this venue 34 days ago but is capable of gaining compensation today.

The selection has got winning form at the distance and will be looking to overcome a poor draw and make all in this race.

Jockey Paco Lopez keeps the faith in Jane Cibelli’s four-year-old, and it could pay for you to do the same.

9.15pm – Neverstopdreaming @ 9/1

A mile on the dirt this time and we are going the extra place here. And with these excellent place terms on offer, a chance is taken with Neverstopdreaming.

The selection has lost its way of late, but has been gelded recently and is making its debut for the Armando De La Cerda barn today.

Perhaps these new circumstances can rejuvenate the three-year-old who looks overpriced in this company based on his earlier form.

10.17pm – Just Kidding @ 11/4

Six furlongs on the dirt and it’s yet another extra place race.

Just Kidding is the oldest in the field at eight years old, but he has lost none of his zest and has been running very well lately.

The selection was second on his debut for the Sandra Matier barn 40 days ago and in total has been second in three of his last four races.

He is a model of consistency and is more than capable of getting his head in front in this company for career victory number nine, so he should certainly be in the frame with four places being paid.
