Tampa Bay Race 4, 5 1/2 furlongs Claiming $5,000 (1:55 ET)
Best Value Play: #5 Garcon (10/1)
Most Likely Winner: #2 Like a Dream (5/1)
Other Contenders: #7 Glacier Bay (8/5), #9 Onesteptogo (6/1)
Analysis: Like a Dream has recorded all of his career victories at Tampa and has delivered two good performances since coming off an extended rest. Glacier Bay looks good on paper but his extended layoff and dropping to a fraction of his claimed price causes concern. Onesteptogo comes back for the second time after a layoff and gets a good post for a stalking trip. Garcon shortens down from the seven panels he traveled last time. His last produced the highest last race speed figure from those with any recent activity.
Tampa Bay Race 5, 5 1/2 furlongs Claiming $5,000 (2:25 ET)
Best Value Play: #5 Twisted Rose (8/1)
Most Likely Winner: #7 No Peace At All (5/2)
Other Contenders: #2 Amaicing Gerry (7/2) #4 Beijing House (6/1)
Analysis: No Peace At All has the back class and the early speed to wire this bunch and runs for good connections. Amaicing Gerry is a consistent sort that ran a big one last time after a two month layoff. Beijing House came running late last time and sports an attractive lifetime resume. Twisted Rose gets a red hot rider and should be ready to get revenge on these with a stalking trip.
