Horse Racing Trader’s Tips: US Racing – Monday 4th May

Our expert previews tonight’s action across the pond

There’s plenty of racing to look forward to in America tonight, including action from Fonner Park and Will Rogers Downs.

And our trader Matt Trounce has outlined who to watch out for.

Fonner Park

The eight-race card at Fonner Park gets underway at 22:00 and it’s the first of 16 meetings moved to the course after its regular season came to a close last week.

Tonight’s meeting composes of four-furlong sprints around one turn and six-furlong sprints around two. The Spring Meeting saw the emergence of young jockey Dakota Wood, who won five consecutive races.

He returns to the track tonight looking to add to that tally and has eight rides booked. His best chance comes in the 22:27 with Taylor’s Beauty. The pair won together over course and distance at the end of March and they have outstanding claims again.

Dakota Wood booked rides: Behold De Flame (22:00), Taylor’s Beauty (22:27), Tap A Miracle (22:54), Bulls Eye Betty (23:21), Jessica Glitters (23:48), Blessing Noted (00:15), Silis (00:42), Brett’s Boy (01:09)

Will Rogers Downs

Monday’s feature race comes from Will Rogers Downs at 23:15, with Potomac likely to be the favourite after crossing coasts.

After disappointing in his two runs at Oaklawn Park, trainer Steve Asmussen will be hoping a change in track will signal better fortunes. He’s likely to be a popular bet and it may be worth looking elsewhere.

With only three starts, March West is lightly raced, having made his debut towards the end of his 3-year-old season. He can improve on an impressive third last time out with a more restrained ride.

There are also plenty more competitive races to bet on and we’ll be offering an extra place in the 23:45.
