Tampa Race 4 6 1/2 furlongs Claiming $5,000 (2:10 ET)
Best Value Play: #5 Newspaper Boy (10/1)
Most Likely Winner: #4 Bizet (9/5)
Other Contenders: #7 Great Victorian (6/1), #8 Calbo (2/1)
Analysis: Bizet has tactical speed with consistent speed figures, has earned very good money with frequent paydays, and Butler stays aboard. Great Victorian is always bet will and runs for a trainer that has been hot for over a year, plus has notched 15 wins in a good career. Calbo has speed as his primary weapon and with a little luck could take them coast to coast. Newspaper Boy showed some very good talent at Gulfstream and although he has yet to warm up to Tampa his past suggests he has a shot.
Tampa Race 8 7 furlongs Claiming $12,500 (4:10 ET)
Best Value Play: #6 Great Aztec (5/1)
Most Likely Winner: #5 Thunder Lord (3/1)
Other Contenders: #8 Score One (9/2) #9 Act Torrid (4/1)
Analysis: Thunder Lord is still in good form, gets Centeno in the saddle and runs for trainer that makes few mistakes and wins a great many races. Score One runs for an excellent trainer that drops him below the level where he was claimed and his late run may get him to the Winner’s Circle. Act Torrid comes back after a freshener for a good trainer and has an exceptionally high win percentage. Great Aztec won at a higher level than his recent claiming price, now jumps up and attempts to secure a dozen career win.
