Good morning Betting Gods Team. We’re set for a Wednesday of Saratoga racing action as we look to build on our month’s current profit of £309.50. There’s a 50/50 chance of rain all day on Tuesday so it’s hard to say how that’s going to impact the turf races but I’ve handicapped that with rain in mind. Let’s get to work.

Wednesday at Saratoga:

Race 9: Ocean’s Map - 1 pt win (US Morning Line Odds: 5/2)

Today’s feature race is the John’s Call at a mile and five eighths on the turf. Even if they rain the other races off the turf they’d still be pretty likely to run on the turf here as it’s the feature event and nobody else really has dirt racing form. It only drew a compact field of six but it appears to be a competitive one. To me Ocean’s Map has the upper hand when it comes to recent form. He’s put up career- high speed figures of 90 in two of his last three starts and trainer Greg Sacco knows how to sneak home a winner at a big price. 5/2 on the morning line isn’t huge but a win is a win. Looks best.

Best of luck to all our members playing Wednesday’s races from Saratoga!
