Horse racing, Tampa Bay Downs

Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Saturday, March 18

Race 2 – Tam
#1 El Cachaco (9-2) ****
Our Eyes: Didn’t relish going two turns so the trainer turns him back to 7 furlongs, where he won his last race here two back. Might have a class edge in this spot.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.

Race 4 – Tam
#5 Elusive Speed (5-2) *****
Our Eyes: Looks like a single to me in this spot. Comes out of key race and class edge. Trainer Mandy Ness is 38% with beaten favorites.
Jeff’s Playbook: 5 units to win, 10 units to place.

Race 6 – Tam
#10 Crimson Hayes (6-1) TURF ONLY ****
Our Eyes: Big jockey change to turf specialist Daniel Centeno. That race was better than looked and even with an outside post Centeno should be able to do the job.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.

Race 8 – Tam
#7 Mr French (6-1) TURF ONLY ****
Our Eyes: Broke maiden over this course and has been given some time to recover in first try vs. winners. Centeno jumps on which is a good sign. Will be closing in the lane.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.

Race 10 – Tam
#6 Hallstein (5-1) TURF ONLY ****
Our Eyes: Has been away for a year. Drops into a maiden claimer for the first time and tries turf for the first time. Comes out of a key race that produced five next out winners.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show. EXBX 6-9

Good luck.
