Beautiful weather both tracks and nice to get to cap without chance of rain/slop. GP very good card and Tampa has a few decent price opportunites.
Tampa Race 1 is a weak group if 8k nw2/l f&m and both favs look like they want no part of 2 turns. The improving lightly raced #6 Alexbabe 5-1ml should pick up horses mid race and is a good win play
Tampa Race 3 is a wide open maiden claimer 25k. The firsters in here deserve a look and watch the board on them. If neither take much action then I lean to to a long price in #3 Mz Foo Do 15-1ml who should show early pace and cuts back after a better than looked performace at this level. Would not be a shock
Tampa Race 5 is a 10k maiden claimer and #9 Box Candy 6-1 started slowly in debut from the rail but Gallardo stays on and thats telling.
Tampa Race 6 is a 62.5 AOC and little pace signed up in this small field. All look capable of winning this and the short price fav #2 probably needs more distance. I think think the #3 Runaway Posse 10-1ml will go to the lead and set a slow pace and may be good enough off the layoff in his tampa debut with solid work pattern for return. He had a good 2018 campaign and will be overlooked in here
Tampa Race 8 is a f&m entry level allowance race and take a good look at #7 Sweet Daddio 15-1ml which is a bad ml to me. Late to the races talented race filly and should be right up near the front the whole mile. O'Connell trains, scat daddy filly, first time turf-- if she takes to turf she is best best of the day Worth the muti race single as the gamble isolates ticket with 15-1ml and allows spread elsewhere
Tampa finale Rave 10 is a starter allowance turf mile loaded with pace. #4 Postino's Vow 15-1 ml has found something he likes with the tampa lawn. Not bad in both tampa tries he hasnt disgraced himself and if he can sit off the pace mid pack then this fast pace mile may trip him out for a piece at a huge price. The 7 and 8 should both trip out also but they are favs. So my get out play will be #4 atb and ex box 4-7-8
