US Horse Racing Tips: Best bets from Delaware Park on Wednesday

Martini Lane Delaware Park
Today's best bet Martini Lane runs at Delaware Park

Nick Shiambouros is back with two selections from the Wednesday meeting at Delaware Park...

"The extra yardage will suit and am looking for a much-improved effort"

Back Martini Lane Race 2 at BSP in the 18:45 at Delaware Park

Time to toast Martini Lane

Race 2 18:45 Delaware Park - Martini Lane

I am going to take a chance with Martini Lane in this bottom level claimer on the main track.

This gelding finished fifth against similar over this course earlier this month. He took a hefty bump at the start and lost momentum. He recovered to make a four-wide move in the straight, and was not beaten all that far. The extra yardage will suit and am looking for a much-improved effort. He should have a decent pace to run at, as the likely favourite Fine N Dandy will probably attempt to make all. I recommend backing him at BSP as he should be a big price.

Belle Tapisserie a solid choice

Race 7 21:15 Delaware Park - Belle Tapisserie

Belle Tapisserie should go close in this interesting $25k optional claimer on the main track.

Earlier this month at Gulfstream Park he finished fifth in a $65k optional claimer. He got caught in a furious speed duel and paid the price inside the final furlong. New trainer Andrew Simoff drops him aggressively for his local debut and should be rewarded with a big effort. He should be able to clear the field, and hopefully not face a great deal of pace pressure. His form is rock solid and recommend backing him at his Morning Line price of 3/14.0.
