Timeform US SmartPlays: Thursday June 16
Timeform pick out three bets from Evangeline on Thursday.
Grand Tuner - Evangeline 01:11
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 - Evangeline 01:38
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 - Evangeline 02:32
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.
