TAMPA BAY DOWNS Race #3

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #3 (CASK) (2-1) - This disappointing home-bred had a troubled break and a wide trip finishing 4th of nine, beaten by just over four lengths here April 11 at this mile distance for a $32,000 price tag. It was his first in a claimer, a positive attempt, and trainer Mike Stidham halves him down to a $16K tag. I give him a slight edge.
2nd pick: #6 (Analyzeyourvision) (7-2) - A lightly raced 4yo, he's another that had traffic problems last out. I thought he looked like the winner last turning for home, but he did not get a clear path until it was too late while checking in 3rd at this level. He moves off the inside, and I believe he's a win candidate in this spot.
3rd pick: #8 (Hex) (6-1) - He has a more early speed than most entered, and he tired late after pressing the pace to miss by just under five lengths here at this tag and trip April 1. A home-bred by 'Stroll,' he's dangerous if able to get an uncontested lead in the first half-mile.
4th pick: #7 (Gimmeabreak) (10-1) - Longshot raced evenly when finishing four lengths in back of 'Analyzeyourvision' at this level going nine furlongs May 6. 3yo has shown improvement in his last pair, and a small step forward could get him a share at a big price.
