Maiden Claiming $32,000, 6 furlongs, 4 yo’s and up
Possible overlays Morning line
#4 Queen Mariles 9/2
#7 Crooked Smile 9/2
#11 Ampys Lil Girl 4/1
Three horses in this race are all lightly raced, dropping in class and are coming off recent long layoffs:they are #4 Queen Mariles, #7 Crooked Smile and #11 Ampys Lil Girl.
Crooked Smile, a 5 yo, has the best Beyer Speed Figure in the group while both #4 Queen Mariles and Ampys Lil Girl appear to have the best early gas from the gate. As usual, the deciding factor for me will be post time odds.
I will bet $350 if any of the three horses mentioned above are 2/1 to 7/2 only. If more than one of them fall into the zone, then I will still only bet one, and my order of preference is #4 Queen Mariles, #11 Ampys Lil Girl and #7 Crooked Smile.
