I’m Warning You, It’s Paulette
Today’s feature at Tampa Bay Downs for 4 year old up fillies and mares is interesting in that it features a number of talented returnees and one that can provide value coming off the layup.
Don’t understand the enthusiasm for early line favorite Arabian Song (2-1) because while returning off a layup for an outfit quite effective with turf to dirt animals, her numbers and company lines are such that she deserves no discernible edge.
She is in top hands but the extreme outside slip at 7 furlongs could prove problematical.
Paulette Caveat (6-1) just inside her in the starting game is a proven quantity when fresh, raced very well on this strip at the last meet, earning figures that are likely to improve with the added maturity gained.
The barn is a very live 2 for 7 at this meet, is profitable with returning layoff runners, albeit from a small sample, and also is a worthy 3 for 7 going turf to dirt. This filly can finish, as can very solid finisher Pablo Morales.
Taking Paulette Caveat to win at 4-1 or greater and key-boxing her in multiples with the favorite and surface loving Throttle Up (8-1).
