Nick Shiambouros heads back to Will Rogers Downs with two more selections from the Wednesday card...
"He makes his local debut, and judging by his strong work tab is ready to go"
Love to Learn top of the class
Love to Learn should go close in this $5k claimer on the main track.
This mare beat Destiny's Love in a similar event over this course last month. She tracked the leader in to the straight, and went by deep inside the final furlong. She won a shade cosily and should progress. This was her third course win, and can give trainer Scott Young another winner at the meeting. Young has a stellar 29% strike rate, and the talented Floyd Wethey rides back for connections. Anything around 3.55/2 will do.
Heroic Song to hit a high note
Heroic Song is my idea of the winner of this Maiden Special Weight on the main track.
This gelding finished fourth to Englander in a $35k maiden claimer at Oaklawn Park last month. He was off a step slow, and could never land a blow behind the easy winner. This run is best forgotten as he lost a lot of ground at the start. He had previously finished a close second in a $10k maiden claimer, which reads well in the context of this race. He makes his local debut, and judging by his strong work tab is ready to go. Trainer Andy Gladd is having a solid meeting with a 24% strike rate. Anything around 4.03/1 will do.
