GULFSTREAM PARK RACING ANALYSIS:
5yo h. He has been 1st or 2nd in half his 8 starts and he has been running in good races. He lost by a head last time out after meeting trouble up the straight. He was coming off a 4-month break that day and he won’t need much improvement to land a race of this nature.
4yo f. She has 1 win from 7 starts. She has been 3rd in her last three starts, seeing her races out well. I think she could be suited by this step-up 8f. Top jockey booking and he can get the fractions right in this average-looking claiming race.
5yo g. Just had three runs since the summer and is back in form after switching back to the AW in his last two starts, 3rd and 2nd. Beaten a head last time after coming from well off the pace and he looks a big player tonight judged by his speed figures.
3yo f. Form 113. She did nothing wrong last time out in a good contest and maybe the race came a little too soon. She’s coming off a 7-week break tonight and should be a player at this level. There was plenty to like about her cozy win on her second start.
4yo g. He has been 1st of 2nd in 6 of his 10 starts. He was tried in a Grade 1 four starts back and now runs in an allowance race tonight. He has plenty of early speed and a good draw in stall 1 for this 5f dash.
DELTA DOWNS RACING ANALYSIS:
is dropped in grade for this claimer and holds leading claims on the form. This filly won her maiden well at Evangeline Downs in Aug21 and has run twice since at this track in a better class than this finishing fifth twice. Has the best speed figure in the race and can make a bold bid over this 5f.
has been showing plenty of promise in workouts and makes debut in a weak-looking maiden. Won’t need to be anything special to win this and is expected to go well. Luna Y Sol looks like the one to beat taking a big drop in grade after running three times in better maidens.
won a decent maiden over 5f at this track 2 weeks ago and is open to plenty of progress on the second start. Goes into an allowance race now the least exposed in the race. Could follow up and remain unbeaten. The step up to 6.5f looks likely to suit.
Mahoning Valley RACING ANALYSIS:
won well on debut over 6f on sloppy and has run twice since in two better grade races and this is a drop-in class from the stakes race tried last time. Can go well in this company as well as up to the mile route trip now that looks a good move. Napped to win.
Tampa Bay Downs RACING ANALYSIS:
Fru Fru Zan
ran a good third when dropped to this grade over this course and distance 19 days ago and can go well again with this race looking slightly easier. Stable is in good form. Fan finished just ahead of my selection last time and it looks close again between these two but that form can be reversed.
