Delaware Park Race 2 for Wednesday, October 18, 2017
Handicapped by The Turf Club Analysts
Delaware Park - Race #2 - Post: 1:45pm - Maiden Claiming - 5.0 furlongs on the Dirt. Purse: $18,000 Class Rating: 62
#2 JOKERS QUEEN (ML=6/1)
#6 DESERTED (ML=3/1)
JOKERS QUEEN - When a sprinter is back in a race less than 10 days after her last outing, it generally means she's fit. This filly is in superb form right now. Finished third last time out and comes back quickly. DESERTED - Classic angle - 3rd or 4th start after a vacation generally leads to a big effort. This one is live today. Taking a trip down in class; has the capability to make her presence felt. Earnings per start is something that I think can be an important handicapping aspect. This animal is ranked number one in this field.
Vulnerable Contenders: #7 MARILYN LONHRO (ML=2/1), #4 BLAZING D. R. (ML=5/1), #5 WATEREE (ML=6/1),
MARILYN LONHRO - This favorite may be out of form without any recent morning drills. Awfully tough to bet on this entrant when she hasn't been showing any signs of life recently. BLAZING D. R. - Awfully tough to wager on this horse when she hasn't been showing any fighting spirit lately. I find it hard to play any horse in a short distance event at 5/1 when she hasn't shown any positive results in sprints in the last 60 days. WATEREE - I predict a letdown for this animal in this race.
Bet on #2 JOKERS QUEEN to win if we can get at least 3/1 odds
