Six super selections for tonight's racing over in Florida

Comments

6.23pm Tampa Bay R3 – Taos

Taos sets a high standard having finished well clear of the third when runner-up at this track last time. Eoin Harty’s gelding can go one better in this similar contest. Lord Dragon has a top jockey booked and looks next best, while Drillomatic also commands scrutiny.

7.09pm Gulfstream Park R3 – Verdict Is In

Verdict Is In has been knocking on the door on his last two starts and now goes first-off-the-claim for a barn that does well with new acquisitions. Interest is in decent nick at present and is likely to be on the premises as well, while Drama in Dixie also demands a closer look.

7.41pm Gulfstream Park R4 – Hail Michigan

Hail Michigan put away the pacesetters before being mugged by a closer late on over this course and distance last time. He should be capable of going one better with a repeat of that effort. Brand is dropping in class and should be on the premises too, while See the Pyramids is another to factor in.

8.27pm Tampa Bay Downs R7 – Barrel Of Destiny

Barrel Of Destiny showed plenty of determination when winning by a neck over course and distance last time and is taken to go in again. Colonels Daughter is from a barn that does well with its runners here and can emerge second best, while Callie California is another that comes into contention.

9pm Tampa Bay Downs R8 – Flighty Almighty

Flighty Almighty lost her way a little bit on her final couple of outings in the UK but can make her first start in the USA a winning one. She had a touch of class when trained by Tom Dascombe (sixth in a listed contest), and has joined a trainer whose record with European recruits is formidable. This allowance event looks a good starting point to launch her new career.

10.19pm Gulfstream Park R9 – Snap Hook

Snap Hook drops in class and switches from turf to dirt whilst attracting the talents of Tyler Gafflione in the saddle. The pace should be solid enough to enable him to pick up the front-runners late on. Beast Mode and Quality Special may be the ones to use underneath in exotics.
