Tampa   Race 2   6 furlongs Claiming $6,250 (12:55 ET)

Best Value Play: #1 Devil Gentle (12/1)

Most Likely Winner: #2 Hot Wind (5/2)

Other Contenders: #4 Pass Me a Bottle (7/2), #5 Always Dear (5/1)

Analysis: Hot Wind ships in from the Hoosier State, tales a class drop and has a resume superior resume to all her opponents. Pass Me a Bottle was popular enough to change barns at Monmouth on a few occasions and comes into this event as a second layoff runner with tons of early speed. Always Dear has done well in ten lifetime outings and looks to get a good stalking trip. Devil Gentle comes in from Beantown for a trainer that does very well with shippers and she has enough Back class to strongly consider.

 Tampa   Race 8   6 furlongs Claiming $ 8,000 3L (3:49 ET)

Best Value Play: #4 Ms. Judy (12/1)

Most Likely Winner: #7 Rhinestone Diva (2/1)

Other Contenders: #1 Oro Penquena (4/1) #5 Bright Promise (6/1)

 Analysis: Rhinestone Diva seems vastly superior to these and the big class drop for this Churchill shipper is the only question. Oro Penquena runs for a good barn and should be gaining ground late. Bright Promise will be on the engine and it is a question of how far she can take her speed. Ms. Judy seemed to run well in warm weather and her migration south may be all she needs to get back in form.
