Long for the third victory

The best bet on the card comes in the eighth race, a mile and seventy yard allowance contest for kids three and older who haven’t won more than three races.

The selection here is eight weeks who has performed well in claim contests since her maiden’s late break, when recording a seven-and-a-half-length success in a $16,000 maiden claim contest at Tampa Bay Downs at the end of January.

An eighth held on the turf after apologizing for a bump to the start at the same venue followed, before some good efforts in $16,000 races at the Florida venue, including a victory in a length over a mile and a -sixteenth just over two months ago.

Versatile performer, son of Vancouver delivered a good second at the same level when he returned to the grass last time out and he looks capable of making a successful change to this place to get better here with jockey Luis E Perez entering this contest with a strike rate of 33% (4/12) here since the start of the meeting.

Stars will win second place

The only inaugural special weight contest on the card is set to take place as the sixth race and will take place over five and a half furlongs on the main track.

Started with stars showed great skill by finishing third by two and a half lengths in a contest of four and a half furlongs at Charles Town when it debuted last month.

Running fourth in the field of six horses, the filly delivered a very promising effort with the race going to a more experienced filly who did the whole race.

The three-year-old has recorded some solid breezes since then, notably when clocking 51.40 for a four furlong job here a week ago.

She represents a Jeffrey S Englehart trainer who is posting a 38% strike rate (6/16) in this meeting and with a top jockey in Andre Worrie in the saddle the daughter of union jackson is taken to get out of the mark at the second time to ask.

Fun to score

U guys are no fun has shown good form since contesting a few stakes races last summer, winning once and placing twice in her three subsequent starts in 2021.

The daughter of Effinex has a chance to shine when she makes her seasonal reappearance in the fifth race on the map, a five-and-a-half stadium allocation on the main track.

Jeremiah C Englehart’s charge followed those two-stakes efforts, including a second-place finish at this site in August, with an impressive twenty-one-and-three quarters triumph in an extended one-mile allowance event here at the end of September.

She came close to completing a double when she was beaten by a length after leading the streak on the same track and trip in November.

Andre Worries’ mount drops sharply on the trip here, but it showed enough speed in the morning to suggest that shouldn’t be a problem and is set to register a third career success.
