Yesterday we did our live stream, Photo Finish, for almost five hours and we had some solid winners throughout the day. Now, today, we return to betting action and I am looking at the early Pick Five at Tampa. I think this is an eminently playable ticket and I like it, so let's break it down.
Early Tampa Pick Five:
Race One: I actually thought about a single here, but decided against for a little more coverage. My top choice and near single was the (4) Candy For All. Love the jockey/trainer combo, love the spot for the horse. Should be tough, but I decided to cover with (3) and (6).
Race Two: The single is coming in this race instead. The (5) Don't Fight has a solid jockey trainer combo and is dropping in class after a win and a place finish at higher levels of competition. This one should be right up her alley.
Race Three: Top choice here is (8) I'm Cardinal with Samy Camacho aboard and Georgina Baxter training. Those two are if not the best at Tampa, right up there. Additionally I like that this horse has been close at this level.
Race Four: The (6) Estilo Talentoso is the clear favorite here and for good reason he's had three starts and three second place finishes and is dropping in class. Having said that, these are maiden claimers, you never know. If you want to single him, I wouldn't hate it, but I added (3), (5) and (7).
Race Five: I think the first time starter (1) Gravitas is very live here for Jonathan Thomas and Daniel Centeno. Thomas is a23% trainer, Centeno a 20% rider and together they are 46%. Tough combo, but use (3), (4) and (5) to be safe.
