Stateside Saturday - NAP, NB & E/W Pick - 27/02/21

Gulfstream 18:24 - Blitz To Win 13/2 E/W

Barclay Tagg’s Blitz To Win seems to have been overlooked in the market on his second career start.

This 3-y-o gelding rocketed home over 6f on debut, shaping as though the mile trip would suit, and the winner has since followed up in a Grade 3 event at Tampa Bay.

The form is rock solid and he should take a step forward.

Gulfstream 20:27 - Tax 5/2 NB

Tax was very disappointing at the Pegasus World Cup however we are happy to give him another chance dropped in grade wearing first time blinkers.

Danny Gargan’s 5-y-o accounted for a couple of these on his most recent visit to the track and he has been handed a nice draw in stall 2.

Juan Alvarado rides.

Gulfstream 23:10 - Greatest Honour 6/4 NAP

It is a competitive renewal of this trial for the Kentucky Derby but Greatest Honour comfortably brushed aside a few of these in the Holy Bull Stakes recently and he looks to be a horse on an upward curve.

The unexposed Prime Factor is not one we should be writing off due to his unexposed profile but on current form it is hard to see him reversing the placings.

Jose Ortiz retains the ride.
