Just the one race of interest again tonight and we will be having a win single and a combo forecast bet at Mahoning.
R1 Mahoning - $4,000 Claimer - 1m
As with our race at the weekend, we have loads of pace forecast here. I expect the likes of SUNDRENCHED, PUBLICIST and ACT LIKE A LADY to do far too much on the front end and that should set this race up for the closers. We have two horses in here with the required mid stretch speed and they are: GALILEOS AFFAIR and FLECK. In truth, it's not easy to split them but my personal preference is for FLECK who has shown that he's capable of running strong final furlong numbers off a strong gallop and also has the best jock in the race (IMO) booked to ride. There isn't a huge amount of value in his price but at the current odds I'm prepared to take my chance. I think the horse we will ultimately have to pass in the final few yards is PUBLICIST who should prove to be the speed of speed.
Advised Bet: FLECK (9/2) - WIN
Side Bet: PUBLICIST + FLECK - Combination Forecast
