TAMPA BAY DOWNS Race #4

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #8 (UGLY DUCKLING) (3-1) - He finished 4th here when debuting for a $20K tag at this distance June 10. The 3yo has worked fast since, drops down a bit, and can take this with a normal second out improvement on a three-week turnaround.
2nd pick: #9 (Courage de Lion) (8-1) - He's switching from grass to dirt, is cutting back in distance, and has blinkers back on following two starts without the hood. 3yo has finished 4th in two straight going a mile on the grass and is back in nine days for this attempt.
3rd pick: #5 (Reachinforasixpack) (6-1) - This lightly raced 3yo set the pace before tiring to check in 5th of nine, beaten by almost nine lengths here going seven furlongs June 8. It was his best to date, and his early speed must be respected against this rather poor field.
4th pick: #7 (Tinker's Pal) (7-2) - Florida-bred rallied to finish 2nd when facing tougher here at this distance June 10. By far a career-best, he then tired readily going 8.5 furlongs on the grass June 22. Back in nine days and on the dirt, he's in the mix.
5th pick: #6 (Whiskey Dash) (6-1) - He raced evenly when debuting here June 10 and was 5.5 lengths in back of today's rival 'Tinker's Pal' that afternoon. It would take just a bit of improvement for him to be competitive in this spot.
