US racing tips: Templegate's best bets for the meeting at Will Rogers Downs on Sky Sports Racing on Wednesday



INDIAN CROSS landed a win in a much stronger race than this at Houston two runs ago. She had four lengths in hand over this mile distance and it could have been more. He was well backed ahead of his debut at Will Rogers after that and finished a close-up second. That sighter of the track should leave him spot on today.

De Bird Is Da Word looks a threat for a jockey-trainer team that fires in plenty of winners. He’s another who looked in need of his first spin around here earlier this month.

My Macho Mon won over course and distance two runs ago and is better than his fourth here latest.

REACHREACHREACH steps up in distance after being tapped for toe a little over six furlongs last time after kicking off her Will Rogers career with a convincing success. Going up in trip won’t be an issue as she was an easy winner over seven at Houston in January.

Mulberry has been the model of consistency with eight wins and two seconds from her past 10 runs. Many of those were at a lower level than this but she took to the track last time when winning a sprint and should run well again.

Miss Perfecta should be in the mix too looking for five wins in a row. Turf suits better but she’ll be competitive.


RIDE TO THE WIRE has been running against better horses than this at Oaklawn so far this season. He should find this company easier and has been clocking higher speed figures than any of today’s rivals.


FOREIGN CREATION takes a fair drop in class for a yard that has a good record with horses having their second run after a break. She was coming back from a year off when a solid third latest and has lots more to offer.


TRAPALANDA made his Will Rogers debut a winning one with an impressive six-length success earlier this month. He has four victories and a second from five races over the trip and stays in the same class, which makes him hard to fault.

Kats Second Silver was a regular winner at Houston and will appreciate this longer trip after a staying-on third on his course debut. His trainer and jockey have teamed up for an impressive eight winners in the past few days.

Alexandros has a handy inside draw and was last seen finishing a good second at Sunland Park. His workouts have been good since arriving here.


SPECTACULAR TEMPER was knocking on the door at Houston when last seen and this looks her easiest assignment yet. She has clocked much quicker times than today’s rivals and saves her best for this distance.


SILVER LUKE SILVER has just failed on his past two outings, with a pair of close seconds at this track. He seemed to see out this mile well enough last time and will be right there again.


VALLESTINA comes from stall ten but she has some decent form including a close-up fourth here last time when having to sit and suffer for a long time. She came through but her winning chance had gone. That was her first run after a little break so she could improve fitness-wise.

Majestic Queen has been backed off the boards on her past two runs and repaid losses for a close second with a game win at Houston last month. This is a higher class but it’s still early days so there should be more to come.

Morgan’s David is interesting for new connections. The booking of top course jockey David Cabrera catches the eye for a yard that does well with horses on their first run.


US SPECIAL FORCES drops in class on the back of a solid second on his first course outing last time out. He likes to blast out of the gates so has every chance of getting in a good position before lasting home over this minimum trip.
