US racing tips: Templegate's best bets for the meeting at Will Rogers Downs on Tuesday



APPLE COUNTY showed plenty of promise when second coming back from the best part of a year off here last time out. She ran on well over slightly shorter and will be doing her best work at the finish.

Tocdirtytome is consistent but left her run too late when fourth around here earlier this month. She is overdue a win and should be on the premises again.

Nurse List won with a fair bit in hand here last time and can handle this step up in grade. She’s out again quickly which is a real positive in American racing.


UNDIVIDED finished ahead of Right On By when a solid second here last time and can confirm those placings. She battled on well up the straight and has a good record of hitting the frame at least over this distance.

Perfectly Precious is making her debut here but has been in good for this season with two wins and a pair of places from her four outings. This trip is her favourite and she’ll go close.

Checkerboard hasn’t won for a while but places in half her races and can reward each-way support again.


ORNAMENTAL LION makes her debut for a new yard on the back of a close second at Fonner Park last time. That was over two furlongs shorter than today and she much prefers this distance. She is very consistent and will be on the premises again.

Aubrey has two wins and a second from four runs over this distance and has moved yards since a modest effort last time. That could sharpen her up but returning to this trip looks the biggest plus.

Indian Gem is going up in class after an encouraging effort here last time. She may have needed that after a break and can’t be dismissed.


NATIVE RIVER shares his name with a top chaser on our shores but this four-year-old should have a bit more zip than Colin Tizzard’s jumper. He was a good second here last time when just tiring in the closing stages. He was coming back from a break so will have needed that run.

Abstract Paynter didn’t look the most willing last time but that was his first outing of the season so he could be fitter now.

Evie’s Prince is interesting making his debut in a race that isn’t the strongest. Jockey and trainer have plenty of winners when they come together.

QUICK CALISIA has improved with each of her three starts and was a good second on her first run around here last time. There was a long way back to the third home so the form looks decent enough. This slight step up in distance looks a wise move.

Shadowing takes a big drop in class after some promise on debut at Houston last time. She should come on plenty for the experience.

Dakamo Rose is another dropping in grade after coming home fourth first time out. The yard has a good record when they move a horse down in class.


WHO’S FOOLING WHO has produced her best efforts over this distance and should find this a good deal easier than at Houston last time where she was sixth. She didn’t get the best of runs there and is capable of better.

Whimsical Tale won with plenty in hand latest and could take another step forward. Trainer and jockey have won five out of six races they have teamed up in.

Letter Rip won well in December and looked in need of her comeback here earlier this month. She is capable of hitting the frame.


FFURGIE put in a good effort to win over course and distance earlier this month. She came from a fair way back to land the spoils by half a length. This race is no tougher so she should be right there again.

Ancona looks the biggest threat given the good record when trainer and jockey join forces with 33% wins. She lagged in by five lengths last time and is interesting maker her Will Rogers debut.

Kottoncandy Kisses has been out of the frame just once in her past seven races and looks a solid each-way shot.


KATS SECOND SILVER has landed two wins from his past three starts over 6f and this slightly shorter distance holds no fears. He has two wins and a second from four attempts over it and should put in another bold show.

Elkhorn Poet is coming down in grade and would have every chance if finding the form that saw him win three in a row last summer. This is his first run at Will Rogers and it will be interesting to see how he goes.

Shred The Rules hammered his rivals last time and has won six of his 14 starts. He tries this distance for the first time with every chance.

DANZING RIVER has his sights lowered for this comeback run. He has been working well and will appreciate this drop back from 7f.

A La Omega is having just his third outing so should be capable of better. His trainer has a good record when easing his runners down the grades.
