Stateside Friday - NAP & E/W - 16/04/21

Keeneland - 23:03 - Mubtadaa 2/1

The market leader sets the standard here but at the prices is looks worth siding with Todd Pletcher’s Mubtadaa who shaped with plenty of promise when third on debut.

The grey was tentatively handled at the finish that day as he was still showing signs of in-experience so improvement is expected.

Gulfstream - 22:22 - Elusive Uncaptured 14/1

Kathleen O’Connell’s 3-y-o filly didn’t run badly when fading inside the final couple of furlongs on debut and at 14/1 she looks worth chancing each-way second time up.

She made an eye-catching move around the bend as she tried to cover the leaders however she quickly fizzled out and we are hoping she is able to last a little longer this time out.
Connections have applied to the blinkers and Joe Bravo is booked to ride.
