A small field of seven-runners to start the card at Tampa Bay with a very open claimer over the extended one-mile trip. Paddy’s paying 3 places despite the small field and Donnie Brasco will be popular with movie fans, but has been expensive to follow.
Despite dropping down in grade, he only has one career victory from 20 starts. Dig In is a tentative selection considering Ger Bennett has his string in good form and should be in the mix again in what looks a weak contest to start the card in Florida.

Nick Caruso has managed two winners from his last four runners on the racetrack and his newcomer, Alvarado warrants respect. Despite ten career runs without success, Wowza Man is our selection for trainer Shaun Morrow and jockey Raul Mena. The drop down in grade and trip are two positives for the selection who could dominated from the front and finally land victory in this maiden claimer.
The lightly-raced Hopeful Growth gets the pick to secure a second career victory in this allowance optional claimer over 7 furlongs. The stepping up in trip should play into her strengths having ran good races to date at both Monmouth and Gulfstream.
Hopefully, jockey Antonio Gallardo will sit off a strong pace and come late to see off the main dangers, Gogo Shoes and Judy’s Way to win.
It’s very hard to look beyond Dynaform for trainer Michael Stidham and jockey Antonio Gallardo in this one-mile claimer. The three-year-old has been a model of consistency, winning three of his six-career starts on the racetrack, including a similar affair here in March.
Tapage is only entered for the main track which leaves High Heater, California Sun and Masterio has the main dangers.
Big name owners are all represented in the closing one-mile maiden special weight, including Godolphin, Juddmonte Farms and Joseph Allen. Juror on debut is very interesting for trainer Chad Brown, while the boys in blue run both experienced runners, Fit For A King and Beachwalker.
However, our selection is U S Army Corps for Joseph Allen and trainer Claude McGaughey – he ran well to finish second on his Tampa debut and could take this under a forward ride from Gallardo.
