Mondays usually don’t offer a great deal of tracks to play. There is some turf racing, and for the most part it is hard level claimers. But the good thing is that they offer value.

Lets take a look at Race #3 at Thistledown. Go to #3 Flying Peak who is 4-1. He is 11/19 ITM lifetime, and has a 57 speed rating and a 52 for the last three efforts. The 57 has been on an upward swing from 43 – 47, and capped out at a nice 57 last out. This can very easily climb again after this race.

He has the services of Luis Martinez Jr. and trainer Randy Faulkner, who is winning at 29%. He has a consistent look about him, and seems to enjoy the Cleveland surface. The jock switch back to Martinez is a positive sign. Take a gander at the “Has improved” icon, and your confidence begins to grow.

I would box him up with the other top tier runner #2 Sailfin who is 5-2 on the morning line. He sports a 57 speed rating, and is trained by red-hot trainer Jamie Ness who is getting his picture taken at a 69% clip.

So, if you like top tier runners who may offer value, this is a good place to start. He is 2/2 with wins at TDN, and you will want to download the entire card to cap on the multi-race exotics.

Just because the weekend is over doesn’t mean your bankroll should lay asleep until Saturday. Lets keep things rolling, and be sure to keep WinningPonies close in hand.

Good luck!
