2:55 pm ET Parx (Race 6) – Plenty Of Time 5/2 (2-star play)

The 3-year-old Plenty Of Time has shown solid form in 6 starts to date, including when finishing on the board in each of his last 4 starts. The most recent of those saw him suffer a 1.75-length defeat when runner-up in a similar race to this over course and distance in July.

Given a break since that effort, the gelding has Mychel J Sanchez riding today and looks capable of helping trainer Michael V Pino to improve on his 27% strike-rate (31/115) at this meeting. 

4:26 pm ET Parx (Race 9) – Scaramouche 2/1 (2-star play)

Scaramouche, a son of Munnings, delivered a Grade 2 victory when scoring by half a length in a 6-furlong contest at this venue in September last year. The gelding has made just 3 subsequent appearances, including finishing 7th in the Listed Gulfstream Park Sprint over the same trip at Gulfstream Park in February.

Guadalupe Preciado’s 4-year-old has shown up well in the mornings of late and is taken to resume with a victory following a 48.52 4-furlong work at Parx.  

4:53 pm ET Parx (Race 10) – Perfect Silent Cat 2/1 (2-star play)

The 5-year-old Perfect Silent Cat has shown good form at Parx in 2023, winning twice and finishing on the board 3 times from 6 starts. The most recent of those saw the gelding place 2nd when beaten three-quarters of a length when debuting for the Jorge Diaz stable.

The son of Tale Of The Cat raced over this trip on that occasion and with a significant drop in grade a positive move today, he is taken to register the fourth win of his career.
