Gulfstream Park Betting Tips: Our trader talks Friday’s action
On Friday the feature American meeting once again comes from Gulfstream Park where eleven races will take place starting from 18:00.
We will be offering an extra place if ten or more runners go to post in the 18.00, 19.41, 21.48, 22:49 and 23.19, and our man Ian Rozzier talks us through it.
The main event is the $50,000 five-furlong Claimer at 22:49 where Hidden Facts is looking to get back to winning ways dropping down from Stakes company.
The last time Brian Lynch’s four-year-old filly ran in this grade she found herself in a protracted speed duel, only to be run down in the final stride by the re-opposing Charmaine’s Mia.
However, with only one other potential front runner in the line-up she should be able to dictate proceedings from the start and gain a well-deserved victory.
Earlier in the day Todd Pletcher will send out his first two-year-old starter of the season in the four and a 1/2-furlong Maiden Special Weight at 18:35.
Pletcher has declared both Prisoner and Restored Order but the latter is unlikely to get a run.
Prisoner was purchased for $175,000 at the OBS March Sale and impressed work watchers with a lightning 48.40 second four furlongs breeze last month.
