The eighth and feature race is coming up at 3:55 p.m. at Tampa.
It is an allowance ($22,500) at 1 1/8 miles on turf for 4-YOs and up. There is a field of ten, with all three AEs scratched.
Our handicapper Bob Bauer sees them in this order:
1 -- Map Room (2)
2 -- Hardly Home (8)
3 -- Cite (9)
Bob notes that Map Room is coming off a third place finish at one mile and a second at 1 1 /16 miles--both under similar conditions to today at Oldsmar.
Map Room, a son of Artie Schiller, should like the added distance and he has the hot combo of Tom Proctor and Ronald Allen Jr.
