The nap of the day at Will Rogers Downs in the United States is Nocturnal Mission in the first race at 13.15 local time, which is a Claiming race for horses aged three and older over six furlongs on dirt. Only six horses are declared to run and four of those have won over the distance. Golden Lullabye and Love And Lemons have a higher Official Rating than the selection. Neither horse knows how to run a bad race, nor would they be a surprise winner. However, Nocturnal Mission came second in a better race 27 days ago and can progress to win this contest at +125 with BetOnline.
The standout bet at Fonner Park is Witts Data Link in the 17.54 race, which is a Maiden Special Weight for horses aged three and older over six furlongs on dirt. There is a field of 10 runners and it’s an open contest with six horses quoted at single-figure odds in the early betting. Gaby Vee and Scotia Queen were beaten favourites last time out and have the Official Rating to contend. Witts Data Link has the better form and rating so is the horse to back at +187.5 with BetOnline.
The richest race at Will Rogers Downs is the Stakes race at 17.15 worth $30,500 to the winner. It’s a six-furlong contest on dirt and only horses aged three and older are eligible. All the 10 declared runners have won over the distance but not over the course and distance. Wholehearted as the highest Official Rating and won a similar race two starts ago. Lady Orchid has won four of her last five races and should go close again. Estilo Femenino has run well in two good races without winning but can prevail in this race at +187.5 with BetOnline.
The best race at Fonner Park, which frankly isn’t saying much on a moderate card, is the first at 17.00. It’s another Maiden Special Weight for horses aged three years and older, again over six furlongs on dirt. Two of the seven declared runners are debutants and another horse is running for just the second time. Mr Mon is the standout horse on ratings and J Train looks progressive, but this could be a race for one of the first timers. The newcomer with good workout times is Let’s Hope, which can win this race at a generous +1400 with BetOnline.
