Delaware Park Race 2 for Wednesday, June 28, 2017
Handicapped by The Turf Club Analysts
Delaware Park - Race #2 - Post: 1:45pm - Maiden Claiming - 5.0 furlongs on the Turf. Purse: $18,000 Class Rating: 57
#8 BEVERLY MINE (ML=4/1)
#6 FRENCH NOUGET (ML=3/1)
BEVERLY MINE - Filly's last prep was second fastest of the day for the distance. After the race aboard this animal on Jun 3rd, the jock is going to be acquainted with the filly much better. This filly is rounding her way back into shape. Should perform well today. FRENCH NOUGET - After the race aboard this horse on June 10th, the jock is going to 'know' the filly much better. I like to play this handicapping angle, a thoroughbred coming back off a strong effort within the last 30 days. I look for an increased ability in today's race with the addition of Lasix for the 2nd time.
Vulnerable Contenders: #1 LUPO'S WAY (ML=2/1), #2 PAPPA JOE'S LADY (ML=9/2),
LUPO'S WAY - This vulnerable equine hasn't been on the track since Apr 29th. Not even any drills. This thoroughbred likes to finish in the money, but doesn't usually finish on top. Forget the top spot.
GUEST COMMENTARY: Winston - BEVERLY MINE - I'm making a wager on this one today. An easier level of competition is going to make a big difference. Will be competitive today.
#8 BEVERLY MINE is going to be the play if we are getting 3/2 or better
