Balmoral: Saturday 11/14 Analysis


Race 9 - $20,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (50 - 78 / $175.60): LUCKY DALI (2nd)

Spot Play: MAJOR MONET (11th)


Race 1

(6) SHEZ A SWIFT will look to make it two straight wins against a suspect bunch.   (5) LIL MISS KNUCKLES made up some ground late last out but probably needs a good setup to hit the top spot.  (7) BUST MY CHOPS mare looks terrible on paper but has a history of competing at this level.

Race 2

(10) LUCKY DALI if the filly minds her manners she beats this field.  (1) LOLLIPOP has shown improvement and gets the best post.  (6) SASSY ELLIE picks up a positive driver change and should offer a big price.

Race 3

(5) PRINCESS GIRL drew off against similar in two straight when last seen at the track.  (7) DIVENELY FLOOZY is tough to endorse but finds a weak field.  (3) JESSE'S POTION is 0 for her career but could get a piece in the right scenario.

Race 4

(7) AJ GET'S THE MONEY will offer a big price and could be ready for a better effort.  (6) READY was much better last week; threat.  (1) FOX VALLEY NORMAN gets sent out for proven connections first start back off the layoff.

Race 5

(9) PARKLANE INDY sophomore pacer owns a good brush and finds another weak bunch; fires late.  (8) WOLF CREEK PEGASUS paced a decent mile last out and has room to improve.  (3) POKER JOE has a tendency to lack stamina late; use underneath.

Race 6

(3) MOON BAY DANCER couldn't pace the turns on the smaller track and now finds an ideal spot to do some damage.  (4) HOOSIERS FANTASY mare has been very consistent for a new barn.  (2) WESTERN BOUDOIR mare looks terrible on paper but owns wins at this level on the year.

Race 7

(2) HELLO MY DREAM pacing mare has lots of room to improve second start back off a long layoff.  (5) GENTLE JANET has been sharp in three straight.  (10) NORTHERN DALI made easy work of this same bunch last start.  It will be tougher this week with the far outside post.

Race 8

(3) REVRAC HARBOUR has been facing much tougher in Indiana but does have a history of burning cash this year.  (1) BIG EXPENSE will look to make it three straight wins up in class; driver's choice.  (7) HUDSON JESSE has been off her game for a few months but her best effort is good enough.

Race 9

(7) FIVEKNUCKLESHUFFLE gelding finds a much softer spot than what he's been used to.  (3) COMPANY MAN gets sent out for a trainer who has a good history at the track.  (2) SUNSET DREAMER was the driver's choice off a nice win.

Race 10

(7) JINXY'S DELIGHT might be good enough to keep on winning even rising up the class ladder.  (4) FINANCIAL EFFORT mare takes a significant drop in class; threat.  (1) JUST BY DESIGN mare does her best racing at this track and looks to be in line for a great trip up close.

Race 11

(6) MAJOR MONET veteran pacer has been much better since the layoff a few months back and picks up the top driver.  (2) EXTRAVAGANT ART doesn't win often but is a threat at this level.  (10) LUCPARK sophomore pacer has had a down year but did show some life late last week; use underneath.

Race 12

(8) WHISKERSONKITTENS has the most upside in the race and finds a group ripe for the picking.  (3) FOX VALLEY RUBY faces significantly weaker; versatile.  (4) PRINCESS MIMI bumps up in class and probably needs more.
