7.45pm – Gambler @ 15/8
David Cabrera boasts a great record at this track, and he shouldn’t have to work too hard to enhance it aboard Gambler. The Karl Broberg three-year-old finished runner-up here on his last start and should be capable of going one better.
Cat’s American Pie hasn’t been too far away in either of his two recent outings and could go close again, while White Russian also comes into the reckoning for the places.
8.15pm – Zapit @ 3/1
Zapit found just one too good at this venue last time but, in receipt of a weight-for-age allowance from some of the older horses in the field, looks well placed to get off the mark for the season. Justaboutright has some of the best form on offer here, so it will be a disappointment if he does not mount a challenge, while Casino Queen gets the vote for third.
8.45pm – Waverunner @ 6/4
Waverunner finished third at Oaklawn on his reappearance run last time. He should strip fitter for that outing and looks to have a first-class chance on the figures. Shelley’s Dream was a bit below form last time but brings some of the best form to the table and should be in the mix if back to her best, while Highlight Reel is another that comes into the reckoning.
11.45pm – Ship Shape Miss @ 4/1
Ship Shape Miss struggled in handicap company last time, finishing a well-beaten last of six, but she drops back into a claimer here and her prospects look good on these terms. She ran out a four-length winner in her last run at this level and looks up to putting her recent effort well behind her.
Erebuni is also less up against it today and has to be taken seriously, while Battle Chic shouldn’t be totally ruled out either.
