Timeform pick out three bets from Evangeline on Thursday.
Trainer Ronnie Averett has a good record when dropping his claiming horses in class (92 out of 100 rating on TimeformUS trainer figures), and can strike in this low-level contest with Grand Tuner. Clear Intent could be the one for the exacta.
Go Poppa Go was slowly away last time and could never really get involved, but is fancied to put up a better effort this time if getting away on terms. At bigger odds, Booth Road Ozzie is considered, while Punch Express also enters the reckoning.
Spit N Whittle has a layoff to overcome, but that is rarely an issue with horses from this barn, and he can strike on his comeback from a 179-day break. Tickatee Tickatay is a worthy alternative but may not get the strong pace he needs to be seen to best effect.
