Timeform pick out their three best bets from Tampa Bay on Wednesday...

"...won’t have to be anything out of the ordinary to make a winning debut..."

Timeform on Madame Yucca

#7 Luna Azteca - Tampa Bay R1, 17:22 GMT

Luna Azteca was claimed from her last run (a neck defeat) by high-percentage handler Jose Delgado and can make a flying start for her new connections. Flashy Patch may emerge as the biggest threat, with Daily Feature also on the shortlist.

#1 Madame Yucca - Tampa Bay R2, 17:50 GMT

This doesn't look a strong maiden claimer, and the nicely-bred Madame Yucca won't have to be anything out of the ordinary to make a winning debut. Smoken Deb, dropping from maiden special weight company, looks the logical main danger.

#7 Market Money - Tampa Bay R10, 21:53 GMT

The final race on Tampa Bay's card contains a lot of dead wood and it looks a good opportunity for Market Money to strike on her debut for a new barn. Neuqua ran poorly on dirt last time but should put up a much better showing back on turf, and looks the one for the forecast.
