The new racing week gets under way across the United States and Canada on Monday, with meetings to look forward to from Mahoning Valley, Louisiana Downs, Turf Paradise and Woodbine Mohawk Park.
Mahoning Valley is the first port of call, with the Ohio track set to showcase an eight-race card from 17:45-21:02, with the 20:04 Allowance and the Claiming at 20:33 both benefiting from Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ promotional offers.
The first of those races looks an intriguing six-furlong contest, with Play Ball (13/8) perhaps being the one to beat for trainer Alejandro Murillo after he made it a hat-trick of victories at the venue on his most recent appearance.
He finished ahead of Over Icce (6/1) and Mister Mobil (16/1) on that occasion and they will both be in action in this one.

Moving further south, and Louisiana Downs is the venue for a seven-race meeting from 19:00-21:24.
Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ promotion will again be available for the 21:00 Optional Claiming, where Open Up Perry (SP) will be expected to go well after he only just missed out on a fourth successive victory at the track on his last visit.
Hezjessmagic (SP) is likely to be the main rival to Rosendo Valdez’s charge.
Sticking in the south, Turf Paradise’s eight-race offering gets under way at 19:40, while the finale from the Arizona track comes at 23:10.
We will then head north and across the border into Canada for the final meeting of the day, with the card from Woodbine Mohawk Park taking place during the early hours of Tuesday morning.
The action in Ontario begins at midnight, with the 10th and final race on the card scheduled to get under way at 03:45.
