Thistledown Race 8 - Race 8 - Claiming

SAMMY AND SHORTY (3) went forward and gave a great sight before finishing third when resuming last time out over 1106m at this track (Dirt). In a suitable race and can figure in the finish. OVERLOAD (6) improved last start to finish third over 1207m at Mahoning Valley. The engagement of Erik Barbaran is a positive move. Likely improver with strong prospects. SHANGHAI PRINCE (7) was out of the money when resuming from a spell last start over 1106m at this track, beaten 3.5 lengths. Likely improver with strong prospects. MARVIN'S EXPRESS (1) could only manage fifth two runs back then improved last start but found one better over 1106m at this track, beaten just 0.3 lengths. Another forward showing is anticipated.
