There is plenty of great horse racing action to look forward to across America on Tuesday, including at Parx race track. Here are three runners which we think look to be a class above the opposition in their respective races. Let’s dive in and take a look at some potentially lucrative plays.

2:19pm Parx (Race 4) – Superhelpful 7/2

Placed three times from eight career starts including when beaten nine lengths when finishing third in a maiden claimer over a mile-and-one-sixteenth at this track last week. The selection shaped as if a drop in trip might suit when making her debut for trainer Scott Lake on that occasion. The daughter of Violence is making just her third start since switching to this track and she looks capable of breaking her maiden with Jorge A Vargas Jr taking the ride.

2:47pm Parx (Race 5) – Confirmed Genius 2/1

The winner of two of her last three starts Frankie Pennington’s mount doubled her career tally when winning by half-a-length in a starter optional claimer over an extended six furlongs here at the end of June. The filly has run well at this distance in the past and having joined the powerful Jamie Ness barn for $15,000 following that course success she can complete a double with Frankie Pennington looking to improve on his 22% strike-rate (92/421) at this meeting.

5:07pm Parx (Race 10) – Hard Count 9/5

The final race on the card can go to Robert N Falcone Jr’s charge who showed good form when finishing runner-up having attempted to make all over a mile-and-one-sixteenth at Monmouth Park last month. The selection appeared to have found his level that day with the switch away from Belmont Park seemingly helpful also. The drop in trip should prove no issue and he is taken to make his first start at this track a winning one.
