Superfecta Sunday in Tampa

Ahh, Superfecta Sunday arrives so fast each week.  Today we take a gander at a mile Turf race at luxurious Tampa Bay Downs.

Tampa Bay Downs Race 7 {1 mile~TURF~4 year old Up~Allowance Optional Claiming}
A equally competitive group of nine will go to the grass.  Only a few are in for the tag.  The speed is modest and likely to allow the forwardly placed to have their way with this field.  It should be a good race over the Turf.

#4 Royal Hill (Allen / Rountree) can be considered the sole speed in the race and with nicely paced fractions, could wire this field.  He shows the highest last out speed number, the highest speed number at this distance, a three race progression, and the highest speed number over the Tampa Bay course.  Watch him run.

#6 Ridin' Wild (DeLa Cruz / Patrick) could be one of those pressing the pace with the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and a stout 83% in the money record in twelve career starts.  He appears to be in top form and should challenge well.

#7 Smarts (Spieth / Sheppard) could surprise with a couple of decent last out speed numbers and two proficient workouts.  He is lightly raced and can be forwardly placed to secure a piece of the purse pie.  He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$1 SHOW.

#5 Porcupine (Cedeno / D. Ward) should be in the hunt with third highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and one solid workout.  This guy is 70% in the money at this distance over ten races.  He could track and wait for his opening.
