Superfecta Sunday in Tampa

After some significantly good Derby preps on Stakes Saturday, we venture to the other side of Florida for some Turf action.

Tampa Bay Downs Race 10 {1 1/16 mile~TURF~4 year-old Up~Claiming}
An experienced group of ten racers take to the grass in the last of the day.  Speed?  There is none. These lads will be clumped up around the track until a quickening into the stretch. The speed numbers appear to be fairly close. It should make for a very challenging 10 CENT Superfecta box play.

#7 Alandtom (Homeister / Bradley) might have the edge coming off a longer route with a fair speed number and two solid workouts. He holds the third best speed at the distance and is 62% in the money at same. He should be closer to the pace than most in here. This guy is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#3 Houngun (Centeno / Manning) should be in contention with the third highest last out speed number at a longer route, a two race progression, and one strong workout. He should be part of the closing crew.

#2 Sette E Mezzo (Santos / Sexton) should contend after close to a year layoff. He has done well off the long layoffs in the past.  Prior to the layoff he shows the highest speed number at the distance as well as being 75% in the money at same. He has put in one robust workout.

#8 Brilliantlee (L. Garcia / D. Bennett) should be in the mix with the second highest last out speed number and a four race progression. He has notched a win over the Tampa Turf and appears to be in good form.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#7 Alandtom  +  #3 Houngun  +  #2 Sette E Mezzo  +  #8 Brilliantlee.
