Nick Shiambouros returns with two selections from the Wednesday card at Turf Paradise...
"Strictly on the book she has a bit to find with a few of these, but her recent work tab is encouraging"
Back Alberta Sun Race 6 at 4.57/2 in the 22:25 at Turf Paradise
Boisterous Rascal to make some noise
Race 3 20:58 Turf Paradise - Boisterous Rascal
I am going to take a chance with Boisterous Rascal in this bottom level maiden claimer on the main track.
This gelding finished second to Newell in a $5k maiden claimer last month. He was checked as he was making his run, but finished strongly and was gaining on the winner close home. I would not say he was unlucky, but would have made things interesting at the very least. He is worth another chance and the slight drop in class will help. The gifted Luis Fuentes has the riding assignment. BSP is recommended.
Alberta Sun to bounce back
Race 6 22:25 Turf Paradise - Alberta Sun
Alberta Sun is my idea of the winner of this interesting Stakes race on the main track.
This filly finished fourth to Who B Dat in a Stakes race over this course last month. She made some progress inside the final furlong, but failed to deliver a challenge. This performance was a little disappointing. She had previously beaten Ring of Fire in great style back in January. Strictly on the book she has a bit to find with a few of these, but her recent work tab is encouraging. Trainer Robertino Diodoro is having a cracking meeting with a 34% strike rate. Anything around 4.57/2 will do.
