Balmoral: Sunday 10/21 Analysis


Best Bet: ZAMBRANO (9th)   Spot Play: AGOOD TIME TO ROCK (7th)

Race 1

(2) TIMEPIECE HERO broke last start and looks terrible on paper but finds a very weak field.  (9) SHARKY DEE also broke last time out but has the talent to win at this level if he stays flat.  (10) LOOK MA NO HANDS has the worst post and is 0 for 19 on the year, but looks to have a chance.

Race 2

(3) VAPORSTAR has taken a few weeks off but has been consistent all year long.  (5) RICCOLO is likely to be a very short price and draw off, but he has been off his game.  3yr old has tailed off quite a bit, but is in a very weak field; short price.  (2) FOX VALLEY STEFFAN has shown a good late burst in each of his last two starts and should be in line for a good trip.

Race 3

(9) THE SUPERVISOR finds a field full of horses that don't like to win.  He has two wins on the year and could win easily if he minds his manners.  (5) GET A LITTLE CRAZY looked to be a winner last time before tiring late.  3yr old gelding has a good post and is versatile.  (1) ROLLING ROCKER made a break last time but was a game winner prior.

Race 4

(7) AUNIQUEAQUISTION was a wrapped up winner last out being used just a little late.  (5) FOX VALLEY RUBY came flying home from way back last start.  2yr old filly should have picked up some confidence and looks to be improving.  (9) THANK YOU DOC had a tough trip last start, but has the talent to be in the mix.  Filly also picks up top driver.

Race 5

(6) WONDER BUNS exploded late last time to get up for the win.  3yr old filly might be turning the corner and is a must use.  (1) OLD AUNT GEORGE can’t seem to cross the wire first but does have a talent; owns one good brush.  (3) BELLALICIOUS well bred 3yr old was used early last start before tiring.  Filly has room to improve and gets a good post.

Race 6

(1A) UNITY ROAD has been awesome lately and actually finds a much softer spot than his last couple of starts; short price.  (7) OLIVER BROWN likes to be up front and if the gelding gets a breather he could be tough to catch.  (5) COME N BET IT was an impressive winner last out and now tries a bump up in class.

Race 7

(5) AGOOD TIME TO ROCK has an impeccable pedigree and showed a good late kick last start.  (3) DESERT COWBOY hasn't been able to put it all together but the speed and talent is there.  (4) SPECIALLY SPORTY was a game winner last out in the slop and has room to improve.

Race 8

(6) ZOT drew away easily last start with a big late kick; short price. (2A) HOT ROD RILEY MAE also used a big late kick to win impressively last start.  Mare looks to be fresh and could offer some value with the bump up in class.  (4) BLUERIDGE LEGACY finds a level where he fits better and is coming off a decent qualifier.

Race 9

(4) ZAMBRANO gelding had his win streak snapped last time but is in a much softer field; gets back on track.  (3) SHAX fought gamely last time out after being used early.  Gelding gets a good post and could be in line for a good stalking trip.  (5) MY BOY CAL was a game winner last start but takes a step up in class; use underneath.

Race 10

(1) FOX VALLEY IVAN is a 2yr old facing older but comes off a very nice win.  Gelding might have gained some confidence, has the best post, and room to improve. (7) W WHITE COMET since coming back off the layoff has been outstanding.  3yr old has the talent to win and is versatile.  (8) SERGEANT STRYKER is a bit of an enigma his best effort would win easily; your call.

Race 11

(5) BOILER HIEDI HO keeps beating the same field consistently but offers little value; use caution.  (7) MONEY RUNNER keeps putting in good efforts but can’t quite seem to get the last part of the mile.  (3) BASHFUL INTERLUDE was a game winner last start fighting tenaciously all the way to the wire.
