Evangeline Downs Race #5 Top Pick #4 (Bertie's Planet) $3.40.
Top pick: #6 (DARK COVE) - He's returned off a six month break in shape and will be dropping into a claimer and going turf to "poly". Son of "Madaglia d'Oro" is a perfect 2-for-2 on this surface and faces several in here returning off of layoffs. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #2 (Forestry Type) - Speedy and consistent sort is working nicely at Hawthorne as he runs today off a seven month absence. He's never raced locally, but is (5-2-1-1) on "poly" and his early foot makes him dangerous.
3rd pick: #7 (Bell by the Ridge) - Gelding made a strong bid into a slow pace and finished third of six, beaten only a 1/2 length racing here at this price on April 12th. 5-year-old should get a faster pace today and that will help out his style.
4th pick: #4 (Cross Village) - Consistent veteran hasn't raced since early November, but before shipping here he had been training well at Oaklawn Park. He's (3-1-1-0) on this strip and this is a good level for him.
