We’re off to Will Rogers Downs in Oklahoma for a ten race Monday programme with the action live on Sky Sports Racing and free to view on Paddy Power.com.

7.15pm – Touch Em Up @ 14/1

Touch Em Up has a 19 race losing run to overcome. He did catch the eye plugging on in fifth on his most recent start which could be an indicator that a return to form is imminent.

Representing Karl Broberg and ridden by one of the top jockeys here in David Cabrera, we think he could be ridden closer to the pace this time and worth an E/W punt at decent odds. Mr Midtown let his supporters down when favourite here two weeks ago. He’s better than that and should be respected in this weak opener.

7.45pm – Winning Bells @ 10/3

Winning Bells failed to sparkle on her first start here May 4. She may have needed that race and would have a big shout here if reproducing her January form at Santa Anita where she finished second in a better race than this. Elsies First has failed to land a blow in recent starts at Oaklawn Park but is worthy of respect here in such a weak contest.

8.15pm – Young Hendrick @ 11/2

Young Hendrick lost ground by tracking wide at the final turn when favourite here last week. He held on for third under tender handling after his chance had gone. The Karl Broberg-David Cabrera team are always worthy of respect and we wouldn’t be surprised to see him bounce back tonight. Valiant Appeal has been holding his form well. He’s been knocking hard on the door and is rated the main threat.

8.45pm – Karate Hottie @ 10/11

Karate Hottie has finished in the top two in eight of her last 10 races. She set decent fractions when an easy winner over shorter here last time out and warrants serious respect as she bids for a treble tonight. Mulberry has won ten of her last twelve starts and should give our selection most to do.

9.45 – Dr Bagley @ 15/8

The versatile Dr Bagley is on a treble mission tonight and should take all the beating here. He repelled every challenger with ease on a sloppy surface over course and distance April 22. Top jockey Ty Kennedy takes over the reins and we see no reason to oppose him from this ideal draw near the fence.

He’s No Saint has decent form in better races than this. He has been lightly raced in recent months and may have had his problems. He would have a big shout if stripping fully fit on his first start here.

TIPPING SUMMARY:

7.15pm – Touch Em Up @ 14/1

7.45pm – Winning Bells @ 10/3

8.15pm – Young Hendrick @ 11/2

8.45pm – Karate Hottie @ 10/11

9.45 – Dr Bagley @ 15/8
