RACE 1 Louisiana Downs Picks
CRAFTY IKE Ike was a comfortable winner at Oaklawn Park in April last year and would have a serious part to play if fully tuned up for his reappearance. However, this could go the way of BATTALSTOWN, who has been in decent form of late and has match-fitness on his side. The selection’s stablemate My Father’s Eyes gives Steven Asmussen a strong hand, with Delta winner Zoltar also noted.
VALUE: CRAFTY IKE
RACE 2 Louisiana Downs Picks
Luvmewhenimgone and GUILTY AGAIN both impressed when winning recently and could have a big say in the finish here. However, preference is for Jorge Lara’s PAT ME DOWN, who could take advantage of a drop in class to make a welcome return to the scoresheet.
WIN: PAT ME DOWN
VALUE: GUILTY AGAIN
RACE 3 Louisiana Downs Picks
TUFFOLOGY who impressed when scoring on debut, makes appeal here on her return to the track, while stablemate Hey Siri has some smart form in the book and is respected. However, this can go the way of the match-fit HANGING LAKE, who can go one better than his recent second. One Fast Song and C’estbon C’estbon finished second and third respectively last time and are others to note.
WIN: HANGING LAKE
RACE 4 Louisiana Downs Picks
EXTIRPATOR was an impressive five-length winner when seeing off Double Star (second) last time and rates as the pick of the recent winners on show. Patti Turner’s five-year-old rates as the one to beat here and can see off consistent pair STEPHEN’S ANSWER and Miltontown.
VALUE: STEPHEN’S ANSWER
RACE 5 Louisiana Downs Picks
CHAMPAGNERIE has won three of her last four and Karl Broberg’s four-year-old rates as the one to beat here. DANCE AWAY made a pleasing debut here last month and can enhance her reputation by hitting the frame here. Ladygogently is capable of another big performance, with Fun Paddy and Tiz Susan Ann also respected.
VALUE: DANCE AWAY
RACE 6 Louisiana Downs Picks
BUDRO TALKING hasn’t been disgraced in better races the last twice and it will be disappointing if he isn’t seriously competitive against this opposition. CHANGI hasn’t scored since November but shouldn’t be waiting too much longer, while Curlin’s On Fire completes the shortlist.
WIN: BUDRO TALKING
RACE 7 Louisiana Downs Picks
MAYBERRY SALOON continues to progress nicely having finished second over C&D when last seen and wouldn’t have to find much more in order to be successful. MAYAN GHOST and Brother David might be worth adding into any potential combination bets.
WIN: MAYBERRY SALOON
VALUE: MAYAN GHOST
