Preview: Looks like a chalky card to me, but that’s why they run the races. Keep in mind, Tampa runs 5 days a week this month by adding Thursdays so the field sizes might be down a bit. I don’t understand the rationale but that’s the schedule. I personally would just add an extra race per day and keep the 4-day week.
Race 3 – Tam
#2 Annabella Hall (6-1) ****
Our Eyes: Leading jockey Daniel Centeno rides for trainer Ian Hemingway. They are a 28% combination the last year. This mare is cutting back from two turns on the turf to one turn on the dirt. — Jeff Nahill
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 8 units to show. EXBX 2-8-7.
Race 6 – Tam
#6 Lime Beach (5-2) *****
Our Eyes: This looks like a single in all of the exotics as Centeno rides for trainer Arnaud Delacour. Has the top Brisnet Late Pace Rating. — Jeff Nahill.
Jeff’s Playbook: 5 units to win and 10 units to place.
Race 9 – Tam
#10 Gone Astray Kiss (5-1) ****
Our Eyes: Centeno might have a big day as he picks up the mount on this gelding for trainer Derek Ryan, who takes the blinkers off and he’s 20% with that move. — Jeff Nahill
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.
