Mahoning Valley and Delta Downs provide Monday’s US Racing action after Turf Paradise fell victim to the weather, with 17 races for punters to get excited about.

The action from Ohio’s Mahoning Valley gets underway at 17:45 and their eight races run through until 21:02.

Both the 18:40 and the 20:04 offer promotions. The former features Betfred’s Extra Place with three being paid out on this Allowance over six furlongs.

Robert Gorham’s A Smile A Day leads the market at 6/4 and has stunning numbers, with her results reading 22212, that victory coming at this course on December 12.

Competition is likely to come from 11/4 Rock Star Lady, while 7/2 Merrie Music may also prove a contender for Larry Smith having broken her maiden here just before the turn of the year.

The second promotion on the card sees Betfred ready to refund your stake as a free bet up to £10 if your horse finishes second in the 20:04.

Another Allowance, this time over a mile and 70 yards, Tico Thunder took the tape for the first time in his last six outings here in January and Alejandro Murillo will be looking for him to follow it up on his 66th start.

The eight-year-old is available at 5/2, ahead of Jay Bernardini’s Escape Velocity at 3/1, a winner on two of his last our starts, although both are behind serial placer Wincredible Star at 9/4.

On to Delta Downs and the Louisiana circuit hosts nine races, going off between 18:55 and 22:35.

Betfred are again ready to refund your stake up to £10 if your horse comes home second in the 20:43, a Maiden Claiming over six furlongs and 110 yards.

Miss Jamie has threatened to break her duck in recent outings and is the 6/4 favourite to get home first here.

However, River Rain has placed in her last two outings for Timothy Martin and is joined on 9/2 by Taylor’s Lightning for the Scott Gelner yard.

Whenever you bet on Racing, Betfred.
