With no fewer than seven race meetings on Monday, there’s plenty of chances to start the week with a few winners. Our experts have analyzed the card at Tampa Bay and have four picks.

Race 1 – PICK: El Duque (3/1 ML) - Click here to bet on El Duque with TVG

The first race at Tampa is a competitive heat over a mile, but one horse that stands out is the Ramon Minguet-trained El Duque who bounced back to form last time out. That was over seven furlongs and you can be sure that the extra furlong will suit him down to the ground today. He’s had fewer runs than most in this field and is open to more improvement than those likely to be at the top of the market.

Race 3 – PICK: Silver Sun (3/1 ML) - Click here to bet on Silver Sun with TVG

Those with experience don’t set an unsurmountable standard in this race, so take a chance on the unraced Silver Sun. Dale Bennett’s two-year-old has been impressing in morning workouts and he’s one to note in the market.

Race 5 – PICK: I Dream Of Lois (9/2 ML) - Click here to bet on I Dream Of Lois with TVG

Overcoming stall 13 won’t be straightforward, but I Dream Of Lois ended 2019 in great form and her last run suggests she’s peaking to return to those levels very soon. One mile around Tampa are her optimum conditions and her rivals don’t come into this race in great form.

Race 8 – PICK: Romantic Gizmo (5/2 ML) - Click here to bet on Romantic Gizmo with TVG

Dropping back in distance looks the key to Romantic Gizmo’s chances in race 8 today and he can go one better than his 40/1 runner-up finish last time out. That run was over 1 mile, but he’s never really convinced over that far (only ever won at 5 furlongs) and today’s conditions should be perfect for him.
