Nick Shiambouros heads to Tampa Bay Downs with two picks from the Florida course…
Starship Reina to take opener
Starship Reina ought to admire the convenience in grade on this $8k claimer on the primary monitor.
This mare completed second to All Good Times in a $20k claimer over seven furlongs again in February. She took the lead inside the ultimate furlong, however her stamina gave out and was caught shut dwelling. The return to 6 furlongs, and the aggressive drop by coach Gerald Bennett ought to do the trick. She is an uncomplicated journey and can go shut. Anything round 3.02/1 will do.
Bella Pierina to make all
Bella Pierina ought to make her presence felt on this allowance race on the turf.
This mare completed third to Antalya over this course final month. She tried to make all, however didn’t get dwelling over the 11 furlong journey and needed to accept a spot. Trainer Joseph Minieri properly drops her again to a mile, and ought to be simpler over this journey. She has loads of tempo, and jockey Daniel Centeno is greater than able to setting the correct fractions. Hopefully she will be able to clear the sector and make all. Anything round her Morning Line value of 5.04/1 will do.
