Nick Shiambouros heads to Delaware Park with two selections from the Wednesday card...
"Hopefully jockey Brian Pedroza can get him to relax in the early stages, before making his move in the straight"
Chapalu tough on the drop
Chapalu is an interesting runner in this $25k optional claimer on the turf.
This colt has rock solid form in the book dating back to 2019 when he won a Grade 3 at Woodbine. He had his first start in a year when finishing sixth to Me and Mr. C in a $32k optional claimer at Tampa Bay Downs in February. He flashed speed, before calling it a day in the straight. He makes his local debut for trainer Justin Nixon who has had a winner at the meeting. His work tab is strong, and the gifted Carol Cedeno has the riding assignment. BSP is recommended.
No Renovations to graduate
No Renovations should prove difficult to beat in this bottom level claimer on the main track.
This gelding finished second to Muchacho Macho in a similar event over this course last month. He was caught in a speed duel, and paid the price close home. This was a decent effort considering it was only his third start. He had previously shown promise in a couple of better maiden races at Tampa Bay Downs. Hopefully jockey Brian Pedroza can get him to relax in the early stages, before making his move in the straight. He has the form in the book to take this and is ideally drawn on the outside. Anything around 3.55/2 will do.
