Balmoral: Sunday 10/20 Analysis


Race 7 - $25,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (50 - 107 / $180.80): SIMPLYIRRESISTABLE (3rd)

Spot Play: WIMPY DOODLE (5th)


Race 1

(4) ARCHETTO HANOVER has been facing much tougher out east and just needs a good effort; short price.  (3) GATOR BOY the break last start wasn't his fault and if anybody can challenge the top choice its this guy.  (9) SVAYA KNOWS made up a ton of ground in the middle half and would need a very fast pace up front to sweep past late.

Race 2

(1) KING MUFASA has not been defeated in his division yet this year.  (3) SEMPER FIT lightly raced 3-year-old could challenge the top choice if he was in racing shape which is a question mark.  (6) FOX VALLEY CAMO gelding has had a good year and has a good late kick; use underneath.

Race 3

(9) SIMPLYIRRESISTIBLE should beat this field on talent and pedigree alone; fires early.  (8) SEXY CARD SHARK filly takes a bump up in class but did put in a good mile last start.  (10) LIZZABELLE three-year-old went a very tough trip last out but had been showing nice improvement prior.

Race 4

In a really bad race full of trotters who hate to win (5) KELSEY'S STAR needed her last start and has been facing much tougher.  (3) BELLS MOPED has just been racing evenly but does get a good post with options.  (9) CASH THE CHECK sophomore trotter has some ability but needs to find a way into the race.

Race 5

(3) WIMPY DOODLE 2-year-old has had really bad racing luck getting bad posts and stuck behind dull cover.  The gelding does have a good brush and should offer a great price.  (4) ROCKILLES HEEL four-year-old put in a really nice qualifier last month before coming up empty in his starts, however he does find a suspect field.  (1) BEACH HERO draws the rail and gets sent out for a barn that is hot right now.

Race 6

(5) LITTLE BITTY LIES well-bred trotter has been facing grand circuit horses and now gets a layup if she can stay trotting.  (6) CASINO ROYALE nice easy winner last out and should the top choice make a miscue is probably the horse to beat.  (2) PERFECT PROFIT somebody should buy the trotting mare because she has a lot of ability and just needs a good drive for a piece; use underneath.

Race 7

(4) BELL VALLEY ART has been racing gamely in a weak and inconsistent field.  (2) LITTLE BIT SIDEWAYS comes off a victory and now makes his second start for new connections; threat.  (3) BEACH'S NICK always seems to lack stamina late but has shown a big burst of speed; use underneath.

Race 8

(8) PHOBIC PRINCESS mare takes a huge drop in class and the pacer should make her presence felt late.  (4) OSAGE mare got on a roll at this time last year and she is just now back in racing shape.  (1) HELEN'S PLACE GIRL mare draws the rail and should save some ground before shaking loose late.

Race 9

(5) BRIEF'S BOY is on a big time roll and probably only the drive could stop him from hitting the board.  (6) BUGGER MAX  has been off for a few weeks and could need a start but was racing gamely in his last few starts.  (4) RIGHTONRAY rarely wins but has been hitting the board with consistency; use underneath.

Race 10

(2) JO JO SPUR just missed after being locked and shuffled; big chance. (3) CATMANDO comes off two straight victories and makes his first start off the claim.  (1) OHYOUATEONETOO mare has just been racing evenly but draws the rail and should be in line for an ideal trip.
