Timeform's US team pick out the best bets from tonight's action at Turf Paradise.
"While the price will be nothing to get excited about, Angel de Amour looks by far the most likely winner on the Turf Paradise card, with both his Timeform form-based ratings and TimeformUS speed figures well in excess of anything his rivals have achieved."
Turf Paradise race 4, 21:46 GMT - Number Five
Number Five has done well since shipping to Turf Paradise from California, winning two of his three starts, and he can extend that record in this turf allowance contest. Red Zeus is a worthy Morning Line favourite, having finished well ahead of Number Five when they last met, although Number Five ran like he was clearly amiss that day, and it's probably not wise to take that form literally.
Turf Paradise race 7, 23:10 GMT - Angel de Amour
While the price will be nothing to get excited about, Angel de Amour looks by far the most likely winner on the Turf Paradise card, with both his Timeform form-based ratings and TimeformUS speed figures well in excess of anything his rivals have achieved. Vavoom scraped home by a nose in a similar race last time out, and he may be the one to chase Angel de Amour home.
Turf Paradise race 8, 23:38 GMT - River District
Making his first start for a new stable, River District performed poorly last time out, but that was on turf, and the switch back to dirt should be much more in his favour. In four dirt starts on the Southern California circuit, River District cut little ice, but this race represents a marked drop in class, and he should represent a bit of value against some modest rivals. Go Dude probably has the best overall form, but he will be short enough in the market.
