The new racing week begins in style across the United States on Monday, with meetings to enjoy from Mahoning Valley, Louisiana Downs and Turf Paradise.
Mahoning Valley will be the first port of call, with the Ohio track set to take in seven races beginning at 17:45 and reaching a conclusion at 21:02.
The opening two Claiming races from the venue at 17:45 and 18:12 will both benefit from Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ promotion, with the latter race particularly catching the eye, as Unyielding (6/4 fav) has won three on the bounce and is likely to go head-to-head with another in-form runner in Fox On The Run (3/1), amongst others.

The action at Mahoning Valley will be firmly up and running by the time the seven-race offering from Louisiana Downs gets underway at 19:00, with the finale there set to take place at 21:24.
Our focus will then remains in the south, but we will move further west from Louisiana to Arizona for an eight-race offering from Turf Paradise that will get underway at 19:55 before the finale at 23:27.
The 20:26 Allowance Optional Claiming could be the pick of the races from Turf Paradise, as an intriguing two-way battle could emerge between the in-form Mike Operator (9/4 fav) and Ronamo (5/2), who will be making a significant drop in class for trainer Rafael Barraza.
That is not the only race that will catch the eye from Turf Paradise, with the 20:57 Claiming also expected to provide a competitive contest, with the consistent Our Little Tiger (4/1) trying to get the better of Crazy Good (3/1), who streaked to a wide-margin victory last time out, although that was in a much weaker contest, while Smooth Rithms heads the betting at 5/2 for Manuel Ortiz.
