Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 3 
Race overview:  A modest 8k N2L routing on the Tapeta, with a few sketchy proven runners, which means the class riser #9 BELLA MIURA (4-1) has a big chance to win right back. 
Pace:  Expect a bunched group, as there’s not a ton of true early speed. 
Trends:  Stalker/closers have been the way to go routing on Tapeta, as horses in front early—no matter how slow they go—have trouble lasting late. 
Best Play:  #9 BELLA MIURA (4-1): Rousing MCL winner put forth an effort that kind of came from nowhere, but it was visually impressive and a true breakthrough, so on the rise against a group like this, she should hit hard right back. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the early Pk5/Pk4.
