Timeform bring you bets from Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

Tampa Bay race 1 (17:30 GMT) - Tree Fire (LAY)

Tree Fire won an uncompetitive claimer last time and looks to have more on his plate in this better contest, so he may be worth laying. There are few of this seven-runner field that can be safely ruled out, including several who possess better Timeform ratings and TimeformUS speed figures.

Tampa Bay race 7 (20:30 GMT) - Grey Walls

Grey Walls is relatively unproven on dirt, but he has some solid turf form to her name and should be forwardly-placed in this allowance optional claimer on the main track. Her one dirt start came when fifth on debut at Saratoga in 2014, but that isn't a run to be drawing conclusions from, and her pedigree suggests she should be just as effective on this surface as on turf.

Tampa Bay race 8 (21:00 GMT) - Red Guard

Red Guard is a rare runner at this track for trainer Shug McGaughey, and the hint should be taken. Having performed creditably on the New York circuit, this move to less competitive surroundings ought to see Red Guard adding to his lone maiden win.
