Horse Racing tips: Racing Post’s best bets for all eight Tampa Bay Downs races on Wednesday

The Racing Post's guide to EVERY race over at Tampa Bay Downs in sunny Florida this evening

Comments

5.30pm – AUTOGRAPH @ 12/1

Autograph sprung a surprise when making every post a winning one over slightly further here recently. He could get loose on the lead again and prove too strong for The Kahn, who had Upper Crown two positions in arrears when runner-up on his latest appearance.

6pm – PIONEEROF NEW YORK @ 5/4

Pioneerof New York landed the odds at the chief expense of Strong Gem over 1m here in February. She has been freshened up since and can show the benefit of it. My Masterpiece keeps running well in defeat and should do so again, although the chief threat could be Noble Intentions.

6.30pm – SUPER TWENTY FIVE @ 9/4

Lil B Quick trounced Alluring Approval and Do What It Takes over track and trip, but was one of Rattlesnakerose’s victims here in February. They may all be playing for second, though, because Super Twenty Five has been performing with credit in stronger allowance optional claimers and could prove too good.

7pm – GESTURE @ 9/4

Foxglove deserves to get her head in front, but may have to settle for yet another second placing because Gesture has shown potential in a couple of decent maiden special weights. Stack Shack and Natoma must also enter the reckoning.

DON’T MISS:

7.30pm – LEGACY AZTECA @ 4/1

Top Seed drops significantly in grade and looked a decent prospect when scoring on debut while Elzabe’s On Board sauntered clear to score by three lengths here earlier this month and is respected. However, Legacy Azteca has proven consistency personified in recent months and could prove the answer under ideal conditions.

8pm – CROWN OF JOY @ 5/2

Crown of Joy failed to fire last time but her earlier efforts read well in the context of this race and she looks worth another chance eased in grade. Durven finished runner-up in a 100k event back in August and isn’t passed over lightly with Antalya and Mast Cove also respected.

8.30pm – BLAME THE CAKE @ 11/10

Blame The Cake drops significantly in grade after eight months off the track and although the absence is a concern, the form of his two runs to date make him difficult to oppose. Sense Of Justice is entitled to improve on his comeback fourth here earlier this month and looks the most likely to capitalise if the selection fails through lack of fitness ahead of the newcomer Creed.

9pm – SUMMER ASSAULT @ EVS

Summer Assault finished third in a similar event over a mile here last month and the early dash he displays in his races suggests the greater speed test will pose few problems. Kid Russell finished runner-up in a 100k event when last seen in October and may prove next best ahead of Uncle Bud.
