We head to Tampa Bay Downs in Oklahoma for a nine-race Wednesday programme which is live on Sky Sports Racing and free to view on PaddyPower.com. We’re going to play a Super Yankee on the first five races.
Gran Greyfrost ran into a place in a Stakes race here last year and he’s been contesting better races than this at Gulfstream lately. Hot jockey Antonio Gallardo takes the reins on the colts return to Tampa and that really catches the eye. Gallardo has won on 5 of his last 9 rides.
Gran Greyfrost ran disappointingly on his latest start at Gulfstream but we’re going to overlook that on the basis that he may have needed the run. The Khan is a consistent sort with a nice inside draw. He can follow our selection home.
High Five Cotton has placed in 25 of his 41 races including 9 wins. He’s worthy of serious consideration on his best form. However, his overall profile indicates that a pipe opener may be needed on his return from a long absence. We’re going to take a chance on the race fit Mr Kisses who was narrowly beaten in this class April 3 and may not have enjoyed the sloppy ground on his latest start. Trainer Lindsey Raines horses have been running well too (two seconds from last three runners). Mr Kisses always runs his race & should go very close tonight.
Jockey Angel Suarez has drawn a blank in his last 14 races & his mount here, Cask, has failed to place in his 6 races to date. Those stats hardly inspire confidence. However, he ran a respectable fourth on his latest outing here over course and distance last month. His sights are lowered tonight & with both jockey and horse being overdue a win we’ll give him a tentative vote. Sorcier outran his 66/1 price when second over slightly further April 19 and he could be a value each-way alternative.
Sense A Million has his sights lowered tonight on his first start for trainer Ian Wilkes. Similar to Cask in tonight’s 7.00 race Sense a Million has failed to place in all starts to date and is ridden by cold jockey Angel Suarez. Could it be a case of ‘two busses coming at once’? Well, if Cask landed the previous race we’d be playing up the winnings on this one! La Wapa ran well in this class on May 1st. Michael Laurato’s filly will enjoy this extra half furlong and could get involved again.
Yei Yei stayed on like a horse that would appreciate this longer trip when second over 6 furlongs here April 5th. Hot jockey Raul Mena, who’s won on 4 of his last 7 rides, takes over the reins tonight. Yei Yei is reported to have worked well following his latest 5th on sloppy ground and gets our NAP vote tonight. We rate Catch Ya Later Bro as the main threat.
