RACE 1 Lone Star Picks
WATERWILD looked green on debut here last month when subject to market support but should be wiser for that experience here. VAYA CON DIOS has some nice form in the book but was beaten at odds-on last time, while Cowboy Ridge may prove best of the remainder.
VALUE: VAYA CON DIOS
RACE 2 Lone Star Picks
MISSISZIPPY BLING wasn’t given a hard time on debut here a month ago and could take a big leap forward now for trainer Robertino Diodoro. BEBOP BABY and Clipper Cove can land the remaining podium spots.
WIN: MISSISZIPPY BLING
VALUE: BEBOP BABY
RACE 3 Lone Star Picks
R B TOO (third) wasn’t far behind SPORTY FLYER (second) last time out and given his greater scope, is fancied to reverse the form now tackling 5f for the first time. Silver And Aces was successful here last month and is also taken seriously.
WIN: R B TOO
VALUE: SPORTY FLYER
RACE 4 Lone Star Picks
TEMPLE TOWER won cosily here last time out after a break and could go in again after that confidence-boosting triumph. The likes of GIOBLAST and Lightning Bug can give her something to ponder.
WIN: TEMPLE TOWER
RACE 5 Lone Star Picks
DIRECT DIAL was a really impressive winner here recently for Steve Asmussen and would be hard to beat if showing what he did there once more. WONDERS OF HISLOVE and Affluent Gentleman are worth looking at in the ‘without the favourite’ market.
WIN: DIRECT DIAL
VALUE: WONDERS OF HISLOVE
RACE 6 Lone Star Picks
ISLAND SUN just about sets the form standard after scoring on debut last month and could continue on the upwards curve here, most likely at the main expense of G DON’T KNOW and newcomer Carbon Stryker.
WIN: ISLAND SUN
VALUE: G DON’T KNOW
RACE 7 Lone Star Picks
GREAT AFFECTION dominated to score on debut when last seen and can remain unbeaten here under Stewart Elliott. The two-year-old showed plenty of early pace there and is fancied to make all again at the chief expense of THATSALOTOFBLING and Not Enough Bling.
WIN: GREAT AFFECTION
RACE 8 Lone Star Picks
HERBS LOVE is probably the most reliable filly in this field and has a couple of these held on the form of her course triumph five weeks ago. CORLUNA was third on that day and could get a bit closer this time, while Shes Our Fastest would be interesting if returning to her best form.
WIN: HERBS LOVE
RACE 9 Lone Star Picks
CARLOS SIXES often runs well at this sort of level and could go one better after finishing second in a deep race here last time out. TRUSTWORTHY had some good form in the book at Aqueduct and Belmont last month but has a 13-month absence to defy, while Caribbean could prove best of Robertino Diodoro’s duo of runners.
WIN: CARLOS SIXES
