Nick Shiambouros returns with two selections from the Tuesday meeting at Parx...
"Her work tab is respectable and should be ready to do herself justice despite the long absence"
Back Sunshine Sky Race 12 at BSP in the 22:45 at Parx
Race 4 19:16 Parx - Alfatei
Alfatei should go close in this $25k maiden claimer on the main track.
This well related colt finished sixth to Ghost Game in a $50k maiden claimer at Gulfstream Park in April. He had a chance at the entrance to the straight, but was left behind when the pace lifted. Trainer Michael Pino drops him aggressively, and should be rewarded with a big effort. He should be good enough to take care of this field, and will benefit from the extra yardage. Anything around 3.211/5 on the exchange will do.
Sunshine Sky to wake up
Race 12 22:45 Parx - Sunshine Sky
I am going to take a chance with Sunshine Sky in this $10k maiden claimer on the main track.
This Sky Mesa filly ran with promise on debut when finishing a closing third in a $20k maiden claimer over this course last June. She made a four wide move on the home turn, and finished the race with good energy. She disappointed on her next start when finishing last of eight in a similar event. There was clearly something amiss, as she did not handle the home turn and was rightly eased. Her work tab is respectable and should be ready to do herself justice despite the long absence. I recommend backing her at BSP.
