Carl Nicholson brings us his picks for Sunday's card to close out the week with some winners.
Best Bet: NEPTUNE'S STORM (3/1 ML) - RACE 8
This looks a super little Stakes race with a purse of over 150k. RESTRAINEDVENGENCE is the obvious starting point given he is on a roll and looking to make it a hat-trick of wins, and his last win was over this track and trip. He is taking a rise in class, however, and there could be alternatives. The first of those is NEPUNE’S STORM who is a solid performer at this sort of purse level and should be well primed after a pipe opening run 3 weeks ago at Santa Anita. KIWI’S DREAM was beaten a head by the aforementioned RESTRAINEDVENGENCE and I can see reasons for that form to be turned around, but again is stepping up in class. MAJESTIC EAGLE has not been seen for a while and has a bit to find on form while MURAD KHAN is stepping into fare deeper waters than he usually contests.
NEPTUNE’S STORM looks a standout play, given he has the class and was given a nice introduction 3 weeks ago. He should be well primed for a big show.
RACE 3 – JENPIRESTRIKESBACK (3/1 ML)
NORWEGIAN goes for the all-conquering Wong barn and has been running consistently well around this track as most of his barn does. But JENPIRESTRIKESBACK looks to have landed on her best chance of getting back on the score sheet, she has some decent back class and gets my vote.
RACE 7 – RUNNINFROMTHELAW (3/1 ML)
RUNNINFROMTHELAW signalled a return to form when runner-up at this track last time out. It’s been a while in the wilderness, but she could be about to strike. TAKES A VILLAGE shed the maiden tag last time out and looks the main danger now she has got the winning habit
