Timeform's US team put forward three bets from Tampa Bay on Friday...

An open-looking turf claimer, with Awesome Attack narrowly favoured by us over the wider-drawn Back Away...

Tampa Bay race 3, 17:40 GMT - Back Size

Size returns from a layoff and goes turf-to-dirt in this allowance contest, which represents a big drop in class from the opposition she was facing last year. After just seven starts, she is still open to progression. Nesso has been in good form in stakes and allowance races and is feared, while J's Two Step Halo is another that has claims in a competitive little heat.

Tampa Bay race 4, 18:10 GMT - Back Stand Up Guy

This is a weak maiden claimer on the turf and it will be disappointing if Stand Up Guy can't get off the mark at the seventh time of asking. His turf form last year at the likes of Arlington Park and Kentucky Downs is well in excess of anything this field have achieved. Major Anthem switches to turf and could improve on just his third start, and debutante Strike It Now also enters calculations.

Tampa Bay race 10, 21:10 GMT - Back Awesome Attack

An open-looking turf claimer, with Awesome Attack narrowly favoured by us over the wider-drawn Back Away. Making his first start for new connection having been claimed out of his last start, Awesome Attack has plenty of solid turf form to his name. Back Away is of a very similar level ratings-wise to Awesome Attack but the wide draw (stall 10) is of no help to him. Sarge Hudson disappointed on dirt last time, but had previously taken a turf claimer.
