Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 4 
Race overview:  A competitive 25k starter-allowance routing on the turf, with several different ways to go, though more than a few enter off suspect form, which is not the case with #7 DONTMESSWITHTESS (3-1). 
Pace:  There’s enough here to keep things honest up front, and not let anyone get away with setting soft splits. 
Trends:  Tactical speed—at the very least—is preferred on the turf, as horses just don’t come from too far back to win. 
Best Play:  #7 DONTMESSWITHTESS (3-1) (turf only): Maker claim (22%) wheels back on the rise after looking good winning for 20k last time, isn’t entered for a tag, and should be close throughout. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the early Pk5/Pk4 as well.
