Timeform pick out their three best bets from Saratoga and Presque Isle Downs on Monday…
“Forced to go a bit too hard on the lead last time, he should find things a bit easier this time around.”
Timeform on Magician’s Bags
A good quality allowance optional claimer in which the addition of blinkers may well see Take Your Guns return to form. A big class drop from Graded stakes company won’t hurt either, and he should take all the beating for red-hot Chad Brown.
Although Our Dominator is strictly the one to beat on form, he may have his work cut out to hold Skydiving, who switches to a synthetic track for the first time. Trainer Jonathan Sheppard has a fine record with all-weather debutants, and can further enhance that here.
Magician’s Bags looks the main speed in this $6.5k claimer and should be able to control things from the front. Forced to go a bit too hard on the lead last time, he should find things a bit easier this time around. Old rival Distinctive Style looks the main threat, with Out At Eight also likely to be thereabouts.
