6.00pm – STARSHIP BUBBA @ 13/8
The drop back in trip will be a positive for the Michael Maker-trained Starship Bubba in this 7.5-furlong maiden claimer.
The three-year-old was only beaten late on over the mile trip when trying to dominate from the front earlier this month and should take this contest.
Wordman looks a danger stepping up in trip with the exposed Punchline another who might get in the frame again.
6.35pm – LUCKY AS A SEVEN (NAP)
It’s all about speed for the youngsters in this 4.5-furlong maiden claimer, our first on the dirt track at Gulfstream tonight.
Chucky represents an owner/trainer combo who won both two-year-old events at this meet and warrants much respect.
However, it’s hard to look past Lucky As A Seven for Wes Ward – the juvenile is bred for speed and should dominate from the gate under Irad Ortiz Jr.
7.41pm – BRAND @ 2/1
A host of exposed runners in a very open maiden claimer over the mile trip with Brand the most likely winner under young jockey Christian Torres.
The Victor Barboza-trained runner has run well in his two starts to date and looks open to more improvement.
The Joseph Allen-owned Hail Michigan and See The Pyramids for Ken McPeek are the main dangers to our selection.

8.45pm – AWESOME ELLA @ 5/2
Key Biscayne has some solid form in the book in this grade and will be there or there abouts at the business end of this 8.5-furlong maiden special weight.
Awesome Ella returns from a break and drops down in grade, and the booking of Irad Ortiz Jr could be enough to see her win tonight.
Starship Nugget is another with claims following a staying-on third on debut and can’t be ruled out.
10.19pm – SNAP HOOK @ 7/4 (NB)
A low-graded affair for the 8k claiming contest over the one-mile trip but Snap Hook should provide us with a winner.
The five-year-old has been racing against much better opposition than this and can give the Gaffalione/Pino a winner.
Strategic Outlook and Beast Mode look the biggest dangers but will hopefully only be chasing for places.
