RACE 1 Evangeline Downs Picks
TACTICAL PRIORITY was back to something like his best when second last time and is respected here. However, this could go the way of the consistent MIDNIGHT BAYOU, who wasn’t beaten far when second here recently and can confirm form over the useful Ouachita, who was back in third on that occasion.
WIN: MIDNIGHT BAYOU
VALUE: TACTICAL PRIORITY
RACE 2 EVANGELINE DOWNS
RIDE TO THE WIRE has won two of his last four and rates as the one to beat here on current form. BEAUBOUEF was an encouraging third last time, while Lookingforroses has some smart form in the book and is interesting following a spell off the track.
WIN: RIDE TO THE WIRE
RACE 3 EVANGELINE DOWNS
WILDLY GRAND impressed with a seven-length victory last time and could take plenty of passing if in the same form. Marquee Moment and FANCY MALLORY have both been knocking on the door recently and are others to keep a close eye on.
WIN: WILDLY GRAND
VALUE: FANCY MALLORY
RACE 4 EVANGELINE DOWNS
TOTALLY GRACE rattled the crossbar on debut and is backed to go one better than that second to take this. STEPH’S SPIRIT was third in that contest and may give her most to think about, while the slightly more experienced Glorys Leidy Bella, a place further back in fourth, is also noted.
WIN: TOTALLY GRACE
VALUE: STEPH’S SPIRIT
RACE 5 Evangeline Downs Picks
ROSSLARE HARBOUR made it back-to-back victories when scoring here earlier this month and the consistent performer could prove hard to beat in search of a hat-trick now. PEACOCK KITTEN latest efforts are extremely encouraging and she makes plenty of appeal in opposition, alongside recent course winner Kingdom Way and Karl Broberg’s useful Victor Lounge.
WIN: ROSSLARE HARBOUR
VALUE: PEACOCK KITTEN
RACE 6 EVANGELINE DOWNS
The consistency of CABO SUNSET can come to the fore here and he can reverse form with Missgreeley’ssong, who was a place ahead of the selection when they finished third and fourth respectively last time. Salt Life Angel and SHE’S A FAIR CATCH are others to make the podium on their most recent outings who require plenty of respect and could have improvement to come.
WIN: CABO SUNSET
VALUE: SHE’S A FAIR CATCH
RACE 7 EVANGELINE DOWNS
FETCHING FURY made a winning reappearance here last month and Keith Bourgeois’ mare will take plenty of beating if in the same heart. Conformation has some very smart form in the book and is dangerous if at her best, while My Little Princess and Havinfunyet are others with place possibilities.
WIN: FETCHING FURY
RACE 8 EVANGELINE DOWNS
Free Indeed and Izzy’s Baby Boy both got on the scoresheet last time and warrant plenty of respect, while consistent pair Ten Silver Pins and LOUISIANA HERO can also get involved. However, preference is for HERMANO T K, who has rattled the crossbar the last twice and can land a deserved success now.
WIN: HERMANO T K
VALUE: LOUISIANA HERO
RACE 9 EVANGELINE DOWNS
LAURALEE COCODREE finished ahead of Dori’s Birdies (third) and the consistent THINKING OF HER (fourth) when second here two starts ago and these three look the ones to focus on in this contest. Preference is for Anthony Agilar’s three-year-old, who has been in top form of late, the aforementioned second sandwiched between a couple of other impressive performances.
WIN: LAURALEE COCODREE
VALUE: THINKING OF HER
