Wednesday's Best Bet: We The Clouds scores again at Presque Isle

Wednesday’s 7th race from Presque Isle Downs is an optional claiming event for fillies and mares traveling a mile and seventy yards on the all-weather surface (Post Time 7:15 p.m. ET).

#1 WE THE CLOUDS (5-1) stalked and scored in her last two local starts at this distance under Pablo Morales. She figures to save ground behind the speed and might be able to make it three straight. 

#2 Twila Mae (6-1) captured four of her last five local routes and missed by a head in the other. The sharp filly projects a stalking trip and she is entered for the $50k tag. 

#4 Forgotten Peace (8-5) won half of her last ten starts including a course/distance tally Aug. 25. She should make her presence felt throughout at low odds. 

#3 Redeem My Heart (9-2) competed in the stakes ranks in four of her last seven starts. The five-time local winner stretches back out and she landed the place at this course/distance July 26. 

#6 Our Little Jewel (5-2) fired exacta shots in her last three attempts at this course and distance. She figures to stalk the pace from the outside post. 

#5 Valley of Mo’ara (8-1) tries all-weather ground for the first time. She stretches out and should give her stablemate We The Clouds a target to chase.
