RACE 1 Lone Star Picks
VETERAN’S HOLIDAY wasn’t without market support when fifth on debut for trainer Roberto Diodoro and should be wiser for that experience now upped slightly in distance. SPOTTED BULL has been gelded since his debut last month, while Lucky Red Pepper makes most appeal of the newcomers.
WIN: VETERAN’S HOLIDAY
VALUE: SPOTTED BULL
RACE 2 Lone Star Picks
XINGFU remains open to improvement for Steve Asmussen and could reverse form with FIKA (second), who finished ahead of her last time but is more exposed. Funny Flowers put in a career-best effort when second here last month and could go well again at a potential price.
RACE 3 Lone Star Picks
WITH THE BAND struck on stable debut here last time out and may have more to offer while the iron is hot. T C’S IMAGE got his career back on track with a win here last month and is also noted alongside Little Avenger, who is dropped in class now after a break.
WIN: WITH THE BAND
VALUE: T C’S IMAGE
RACE 4 Lone Star Picks
TRUE CASTLE has a couple of these held on recent form and after finishing second in a better race last time out, is fancied to put this field to the sword. WISHFUL QUALITY and Elusive Rose can make the selection work hardest.
WIN: TRUE CASTLE
VALUE: WISHFUL QUALITY
RACE 5 Lone Star Picks
AMANDREA looked unlucky when third here last month and is fancied to return to winning ways under regular rider Stewart Elliott. LOVE ON TIDES and Quinn Murphy are closely matched on form and can fight it out for second spot.
VALUE: LOVE ON TIDES
RACE 6 Lone Star Picks
TAKE CHARGE WOMAN sets a fair form standard after finishing second here recently and remains open to improvement after just four starts. SWEET LINDA and newcomer Gidget are others worthy of consideration.
WIN: TAKE CHARGE WOMAN
VALUE: SWEET LINDA
RACE 7 Lone Star Picks
BEAU GOSSE has finished third on both career starts so far and deserves to land one of these soon for trainer Kenny Smith. CROW MOUNTAIN has some fair form in the book and could prove next best, just ahead of debutant Three Eyed Raven.
WIN: BEAU GOSSE
VALUE: CROW MOUNTAIN
RACE 8 Lone Star Picks
DADDY’S MELODY (second) accounted for MUCHO MAS (third) here last month and that line of form appears to be the strongest available. Top Hat Tantrum has been waiting a while to win but showed a better attitude when finding just one too good at this venue recently.
WIN: DADDY’S MELODY
VALUE: MUCHO MAS
RACE 9 Lone Star Picks
Steve Asmussen has a typically strong hand with WILLA SUE and Mopsicle and it will be interesting to see how the market reacts to both contenders. That being said, ALBERTA SUN has posted some good workout figures in the mornings for Robertino Diodoro and might just have too much early pace for that pair.
WIN: ALBERTA SUN
VALUE: WILLA SUE
