Nick Shiambouros was on the mark yesterday when his best bet Runaway Wind won at Lone Star Park. Nick is back with two selections from Tampa Bay Downs...
"She had previously won a Maiden Special Weight in great style, which reads well in the context of this race"
Tench will be tough
Race 1 12:50 Tampa Bay Downs - Tench
Tench should prove difficult to beat in this interesting Maiden Special Weight on the main track.
This gelding finished an excellent third in a similar race at Keenland last October. Despite taking a hefty bump at the start, he managed to claim the lead before running out of steam close home. He has contested some decent maidens, and should find this field a little easier to handle. Trainer Timothy Hamm has prepared him well for his seasonal debut. He put in a couple of bullet works, spaced with maintenance works to ensure peak fitness for this contest. At present he is trading at 5/42.28 on the exchange which is just about right.
Don't forget Peace
Race 7 21:04 Tampa Bay Downs - Forgotten Peace
Forgotten Peace should run well at a decent price in this $25k claimer for non winners of two races on the main track.
This Jersey Town filly finished down the field in a warm allowance race on the Tapeta at Presque Isle Downs last October. She held every chance a furlong from home but was left behind when the pace lifted. She had previously won a Maiden Special Weight in great style, which reads well in the context of this race. Trainer Ron Potts drops her in to a claimer for her local debut, and hopefully will be rewarded with a win. She threw in a bullet last month and should be ready to do herself justice. At present she is trading at 6/16.8 on the exchange.
