Gulfstream 19:40 - Future Victory 6/1

Market leaders Aviano and Crew Dragon set the standard in race 6 at Gulfstream but they have both failed to match expectations previously, therefore a chance is taken on Todd Pletcher’s Future Victory.

This 3-y-o is a full-brother to Group 1 winner Finley’sluckycharm and he made a pleasing debut in a decent looking race at Tampa Bay on New Years Day.

He should improve for that run and Irad Ortiz takes over in the saddle.

Gulfstream 22:17 - Lullula 9/2

Saffie Joseph’s 3-y-o filly Lullula was a shade unlucky when second on debut having endured a troubled passage and top jockey Tyler Gaffalione has kept faith as she looks to go one better.

Stall 7 shouldn’t cause any issues and she won’t mind the extra yardage.

Aqueduct - 20:20 - Violent Point 9/2

Violent Point is seeking a hat-trick after two impressive wins over C&D and it isn’t hard to see that happening with Chris Englehart seemingly getting the best out of her.

She hasn’t been with this yard long but she looks to have improved plenty and she is still only 4-y-o.

Aqueduct 20:50 - Return The King 9/2

Hello Hot Rod is likely to prove popular in this Stakes race after his impressive victory at Laurel Park but we are happy to take him on with Return The Ring who is a bigger price.

Edward Barker’s colt was visually impressive when victorious here on debut and the second has since given the form a nice boost.

That victory was over 6f but he finished well enough and should cope with the extra furlong.
