Monday’s US horse racing schedule may be quieter than usual but that doesn’t mean there won’t be any excitement in the states with plenty still to look forward to.

Action comes from Finger Lakes, Horseshoe Indianapolis, Mountaineer, and Thistledown with a total of 34 races taking place.

The first action of the day comes from Thistledown where there is an eight-race card between 17:50-21:20.

At 20:20, the Allowance Optional Claiming takes place and is one of several races throughout the day where Betfred are offering their “Extra Place” promotional meaning three places are being paid out instead of two.

One to watch in the mile contest will be three-time winner Christmas (EVS) who came second in her latest outing.

Next up is Finger Lakes where there are another eight races taking place between 18:10-21:19 and the 19:31 Claiming is another opportunity for punters to win big with three places.

Eight-time winner Preferred Outcome (2/1) is the one to beat but there will be stiff competition from Alongcametheprince (17/2) who has fared well at Finger Lakes in the past and won his last race here.

Horseshoe Indianapolis is the third meeting of the day in the US and there are ten races running from 19:30-00:09.

The 21:34 Maiden Special Weight is set to be an exciting one with 14 horses competing – Bickerments (SP) already has experience of winning over a mile and should be lively in this one too.

Mountaineer is the last meeting of the day with eight races running from 00:00-02:55 with the 01:40 Claiming the final promotional race of the day.

One to keep an eye on will be Yeudiel (SP) who makes his comeback after last racing in December and he has wins over six furlongs and a mile under his belt.
