RACE 1 PENN NATIONAL
BETTY’S GOT RYTHM was knocking on the door in the early part of the year and Erin McClellan’s consistent three-year-old could be the answer here. AMPLIO ESQUEMA and Solo Try are potential improvers in the field, while Meghan’s Angel and Giulia Ammannati are also respected, with the latter potentially finding this much easier than some of her assignments.
WIN: BETTY’S GOT RYTHM
VALUE: AMPLIO ESQUEMA
DON’T BLAME BERTIE and Brooklyns Surprise both scored on their final outings of 2019 and command plenty of respect on their return to the track, while Song Of Indy was victorious here last month and has match-fitness on her side. However, a chance is taken on the lightly-raced WEED WACKER, who made a bright start to her career last year and could have lots more to come.
WIN: WEED WACKER
VALUE: DON’T BLAME BERTIE
GET A VALENTINE made a winning reappearance here last time and Brandon Kulp’s six-year-old could take all the beating once again if in the same form. TWEET KITTEN is no stranger to success this year and has to be respected, with the useful pair Eskenfortime and Gohara also shortlisted.
WIN: GET A VALENTINE
VALUE: TWEET KITTEN
O K GAME ON seldom runs a bad race at this level and could claim a first win since February for these connections. ROLLING PALISADES and Brave Deacon are also worth considering.
WIN: O K GAME ON
VALUE: ROLLING PALISADES
CALCULATED THINKIN had been threatening to strike for a while before winning here in March and could be worth following for trainer Tim Kreiser. EXPEDITER and Pango can fight it out for the silver medal.
WIN: CALCULATED THINKIN
WON DOZEN BANKS has won three of his last four starts and could take a bit of stopping once more under Jose Rojas. MIDNIGHT ACT and The Great Casby will prove stern opponents for the selection and cannot be taken lightly.
WIN: WON DOZEN BANKS
VALUE: MIDNIGHT ACT
SNEAKY COWGIRL and Tiza Weigelia both merit plenty of respect but the vote goes to VIBRANT GINGER, who finished in front of some of these when filling second place over C&D last month.
WIN: VIBRANT GINGER
VALUE: SNEAKY COWGIRL
HARPER P M was only narrowly beaten on his seasonal return over C&D last month and he should take plenty of beating once again today. Others to note are SEISMIC JOLT and Benevolent Prince.
WIN: HARPER P M
VALUE: SEISMIC JOLT
