There's a stacked card over at the Florida course tonight

Comments

6pm – STARSHIP BUBBA @ 13/8

Starship Bubba showed his appreciation for the return to turf when beaten just half a length into second over a mile here. He is taken to go one better but Wordman, who has left Todd Pletcher since he was last seen, is a big danger. Extremelyexclusive and Officer Country can’t be ruled out either.

6.35pm – LUCKY AS A SEVEN @ 10/11

Lucky As A Seven is bred to be quick and is expected to come to hand early. Wes Ward will have primed for a big display first up and he is preferred to Exchange Day, who has caught the eye on the workout track. Catching Fish is one to consider at longer odds.

7.09pm – UNCLE ANDREW @ 11/4

Bahamian Park could bounce back from an ordinary display latest, while Verdict Is In is honest and won’t be far away. Interest arrives on the back of a triumph in lesser company, but the unexposed Uncle Andrew catches the eye on his first start for Mike Maker, who should be able to get plenty of improvement out of the gelding.

7.41pm – SEE THE PYRAMIDS @ 9/2

Brand won’t be done improving yet and is respected, but preference is for experience and See The Pyramids can get off the mark under top rider Tyler Gaffalione. King Of The South is an interesting newcomer.

8.13pm – LOUIE’S KINGDOM @ 6/5

Louie’s Kingdom looks well treated at this claiming level on the pick of his form, and the jockey booking screams confidence. Deckology should also go well at this level and joins Awesome Action on the shortlist.

8.45pm – KEY BISCAYNE @ 9/4

Key Biscayne has the strongest form in the book and is surely going to win one of these sooner rather than later. Awesome Ella is respected on her return to action with Irad Ortiz Jr doing the steering, while Aizu is another to note.

9.17pm – AWESOME PARTY @ 11/4

Shanghai Moon disappointed last time but his success two runs back reads well in the context of this race and it would be no surprise were he to bounce back. Chasing The Candy drops in grade and is respected but Awesome Party remains open to further progress and represents leading connections so is marginally preferred.

9.48pm – HIGH NOON RIDER @ 4/1

Jakarta has won four of her last five and isn’t passed over lightly while Flowmotion arrives searching for the hat-trick and boasts obvious claims. However, High Noon Rider had over a length to spare over Dalarna when regaining the winning thread with a fluent success over track and trip last month and is marginally preferred.

10.19pm – SNAP HOOK @ 7/4

This represents a notable drop in class for Snap Hook and, judged on a good C&D second two starts ago, he could prove too hot for these lesser rivals. Strategic Outlook and Quality Special can give him most to think about.

10.49pm – SONG RIVER @ 4/1

Song River was touched off in the shadow of the post over C&D last month and a repeat performance may suffice in this company. Dangers abound, however, in the shape of Over Gators, Heir Ball and the downgraded Twice As Magical.

11.19pm – QUEEN FIELD @ 9/2

Queen Field has been running well enough in better C&D events this year to suggest she can make the most of this drop in class. This is not straightforward, though, and Miss My Macho and Silly Notion look to be serious threats to the selection.
