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



KIANA’S LOVE looks hard to beat after landing a comfortable success at Tampa Bay last time out. She was in front for most of the race and this slight drop in distance shouldn’t be a problem.

Broke Financing starts out for new connections on the back of a solid third at Houston latest. She had to come wide there and has more to offer on her second start of the campaign.

Love To Learn is going up in class after winning by more than three lengths over course and distance last time. She needs more to repeat but could deliver.


ASSAY doesn’t have the best of winning records but he is a regular in the frame at this level and was a good second over course and distance last time out. He boxed on well latest and a repeat could give him a first win at Will Rogers.

Owen The Great looks a threat from the rails draw and he clocked a personal best when third earlier this month. That was only his second run of the season and he may have needed it fitness-wise. This mile suits and he’ll be right on the premises.

Native River — not to be confused with the former Cheltenham Gold Cup winner! — didn’t fire last time but that was a hotter race and he’s proven at this level.

UNLEASH THE BEAST may not have the best of draws but he could well be good enough on this sizeable drop in class. He has met trouble in running more often than not lately but this is his favourite distance and he won a better race than this last season. This is his best chance since then to strike.

Cheers And Prayers came back from a break to finish a rusty third here earlier this month. He has two wins and a place from just four course starts so should be competitive again.

Texas Long Bow has his sights lowered after copping a beating here last time. That was his debut for these connections and he was coming back from four months off. He noticeably tired late on so should do better today.


INDIAN GEM has been running well in better races than this including when fourth over six furlongs here last time. While she has winning form at sprint level, stretching out to this mile also suits and she’s never been out of the first three over this trip. Anything like her best form should be good enough.

Undivided did well to win at this course and distance latest after being pushed out wide as the pace picked up. The opposition is slightly stronger today but she’ll be on the premises again.

Paddy O is consistent and has two wins and four places from her past six runs. She may need this first run at Will Rogers but won by five lengths last time so can’t be discounted.


SOUTHGATE has been running in much better races than this and hasn’t been disgraced at Listed and Graded level lately. He’s had just eight career runs with his win coming in a stronger contest than this. He comes back from a break, which is a slight concern, but he should be too good.

It’s early days for Caney’s Ghost who scooted up the rail to win going away last time. That was over a sprint trip but he improved as the race went on and should be fine for stamina.

Great Faces is another coming down in grade and he’s proven at this mile. He is capable of better on this fourth outing.


HOBOKEN has been placed in four of his five runs and this looks a good chance to land a first win. He stepped up to this distance at Sam Houston last time and came up the home straight with a real rattle after being pushed out wide. A repeat of that would see him in the winner’s enclosure.

Corky has been a regular in the frame and didn’t get the clearest of runs when a solid second here last time. He is a threat, while World is not out of this going up in class after being beaten in a photo over course and distance latest.


OKLAHOMA LINE has been consistent with a win and three places from his past four outings. The line came a little too soon over this course and distance last time but he was an easy winner earlier and can get back on top.

Daring Ego is coming down in grade after leading until the closing stages here last time. He gets this trip well and the easier opposition should help.


OUR MUSICAL MOMENT was undone by a battle for the lead here last time after earlier landing a comfortable success at Sam Houston. She has no issues with this trip or grade and has won five of her past eight starts.

Ten Count Out can be forgiven a modest effort at Fair Grounds last time as that was the first time she’d missed the podium in more than a year. This trip is ideal and she should be competitive again.

Settle Down Eileen looked in need of her course debut here last time when coming wide most of the way. She was on a fine run of form before that and could bounce back.


KANSAS CITY ZIP has been a model of consistency with three wins and a second from his past five runs. He again ran well when second over this trip at Sam Houston last time and should go well on this course debut.

Man U goes up in class after winning with something up his sleeve here last month. He likes this trip and has been lightly raced so is capable of improvement.

Fayette Warrior has been in good form at Oaklawn and is another to consider making the switch to Will Rogers.

PATRIOT got the job done in good style on his course debut last time, pulled well away from his rivals in the home stretch. He goes up in distance by half a furlong, which holds no fears, and there’s more to come after just seven outings, which have already brought three wins.

Westmont is a danger after a game second on his first sight of Will Rogers Downs earlier this month. He’s capable of going close again.

Cyclone Dan could be best of the rest dropping in class after a layoff. He would prefer further but should finish off the race well.
