Timeform's US team have found three bets for you

Timeform's US team have identified three horses worth backing at Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

Clutchingatstraws was a tad outclassed in allowance company last time, but her previous foray into the claiming ranks resulted in a win at Delaware in September.

Tampa Bay race 2 (17:55 GMT) - Veracious

Veracious showed plenty of improvement between his first and second starts, and can continue that progression by getting off the mark at the third time of asking in this maiden special weight. True Arch was a good third on debut, and should improve, while One More Shot is an interesting newcomer.


Tampa Bay race 3 (18:25 GMT) - Clutchingatstraws

Clutchingatstraws was a tad outclassed in allowance company last time, but her previous foray into the claiming ranks resulted in a win at Delaware in September. She should take all the beating in this $16k claimer. Workerbee possesses a similar profile to Clutchingatstraws, and looks the main danger.


Tampa Bay race 6 (19:55 GMT) - Spin Wild

The majority of Spin Wild's form has come on synthetic surfaces, and he is largely unproven on dirt. However, his one dirt effort, albeit disappointing, did come in a much higher class, and he could benefit from an uncontested lead in this low-level claimer.


Timeform US SmartPlays: (All at Tampa Bay)

Back #5 VERACIOUS in race 2 (17:55 GMT)
Back #3 CLUTCHINGATSTRAWS in race 3 (18:25 GMT)
Back #8 SPIN WILD in race 6 (19:55 GMT)
