Gulfstream Race 3, 6 furlongs Claiming $10,000 3L (2:15 ET)
Best Value Play: #7 Circle Valley (8/1)
Most Likely Winner: #2 Glass Bottle (4/1)
Other Contenders: #1 Bear’s Spirit (5/2), #4 Stormy Mandate (3/1)
Analysis: Glass Bottle has faced much tougher and will be the one to beat if she doesn’t get to far back. Bear’s Spirit has some speed and the rail plus comes off a win with a good figure. Stormy Mandate comes off a win and has posted some good figures in the past-another with early foot. With a patient ride, Circle Valley could get the best trip and it looks like she is coming into her 2012 form, which will beat these.
Gulfstream Race 5, 7 furlongs Claiming $5,000 (3:15 ET)
Best Value Play: #1A Ridge Kitten (6/1)
Most Likely Winner: #3 Si Senora (2/1)
Other Contenders: #4 Mancini’s Goddess (4/1) #6 New Englander (3/1)
Analysis: Si Senora is going first time for a new barn and has plenty of affection for Gulfstream Park. Mancini’s Goddess runs for the second time for a good claiming outfit and should stalk the early pace to have a good run. New Englander is hard to ignore with a dozen wins on her lifetime scorecard. She is very capable of whipping these younger ones. Ridge Kitten returns second time from a freshener and has speed to burn. A comfortable lead and she could take them coast to coast.
