Presque Isle Downs 20:05 - Gentle One

Gentle One looks the answer to the first race (20.05 BST) at Presque Isle Downs. The mare has a good win record - nine from 48 - is running consistently and the last time she was up against a field of similar calibre she scored here at the end of September. Few of her rivals have anything like solid credentials, and though she is approaching the veteran stage it's not been showing in her races recently.


Delaware 20:15 - Bibby

Two horses are priced up at 3.5 in the fifth race (20.15 BST) at Delaware with contrasting profiles. One is Proudly We Hail, trained by Graham Motion and unplaced in two turf maidens; the other is Bibby, trained by Christophe Clement and fourth at Belmont on his debut last month splitting two subsequent winners. The former is clearly expected to improve but so surely will the latter and even a repeat of his debut should suffice here with something to spare.


Woodbine 00:15 - Back Henke

The second race (00.15 BST) at Woodbine has an interesting betting shape in that the forecast favourite is Dottins Alley, a horse that is having its first race on turf after winning a maiden last time out on the synthetic surface here. Eleven furlongs round here is quite a stamina test, and it remains to be seen if it will suit, or if he is even good enough, which makes the forecast 4.5 about Henke all the more attractive. He's won two of his four races on the grass here, has a solid form chance and being by the Hollywood Turf Cup winner Sligo Bay should relish the longer trip today.
