Nick Shiambouros was on the mark yesterday when his selection Evidence won at Tampa Bay Downs. Nick heads to Lone Star Park with two strong fancies...
"He has been working really well ahead of his local debut, and his best effort would be good enough to take this"
Caddo Fox to make all
Race 2 20:07 Lone Star Park - Caddo Fox
Caddo Fox should open his account in this State bred Maiden Special Weight on the main track.
This gelding came up a little short when finishing second against similar over this course earlier this month. He held every chance inside the final furlong, but could not go by the game winner. Trainer Danny Payne stretches him out to the mile which is the logical move. He should be able to clear the field from his outside draw, and control the race from the front. Veteran rider Danny Sorenson rides back for connections, and is an excellent judge of pace. Anything around 2.89/5 will do.
Brave Nation a tough customer
Race 8 23:15 Lone Star Park - Brave Nation
Brave Nation should make his presence felt in this allowance race on the turf.
This talented five-year-old makes his first start for high percentage trainer Robertino Diodoro. He ships in from the west coast, and has some outstanding form in the book from last year. His best effort was an excellent third in the Grade 3 Berkley Handicap at Golden Gate Fields last November. He was a tad disappointing on his latest start in January when fading in to fifth in allowance company. He has been working really well ahead of his local debut, and his best effort would be good enough to take this. At present he is trading at 3.8514/5 on the exchange but BSP is recommended
