Balmoral: Sunday 12/16 Analysis


Race 7 - $30,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: ACTION JACKSON (2nd)   

Spot Play: STARDOM BOUND (6th)

Race 1

(5) DISLOCATED comes off a scratch but has class edge on the field. (8) FURIOUS FIVE was an impressive winner at Maywood last week and looks to be improving.  (4) TOWNLINE KENYA closed up nicely from a tough spot last start.  Mare is versatile and will probably be forwardly placed.

Race 2

(3) ACTION JACKSON pacing bred trotter looked to be a winner in his career debut and should improve.  (5) KACY'S PHOTO well bred mare put in a good effort last out before tiring in the stretch. (6) DEALIN KID just raced evenly last out but finds a suspect field.

Race 3

(2) BLUERIDGE VALENTINO adds second time lasix, drops in class, and has top driver. (1) JIMENYS STAR is coming off a scratch but closed nicely in his previous start.  (6) OUR CONNOR MAC N takes a drop in class and should be competitive.

Race 4

(9) MESSIE HANOVER is saddled with the worst post but has been racing gamely; versatile.  (7) MS RAQ N FLASH bumps back up in class and should offer some value.  Mare could use some fast fractions up front to close into. (5) BUBBLER looked to be a winner last out before tiring late.  Mare has some upside and could step up.

Race 5

(3) COCOTIER two-year-old is making his third start and is immensely talented.  Gelding could offer some value and should be forwardly placed.  (9) CREDITCARDEXPRESS crushed last time out and a repeat performance makes it two in a row; picks up top driver.  (10) LADY TEN mare is coming off two decent qualifiers which could mean the 5-year-old is ready to put in a good effort.

Race 6

(4) STARDOM BOUND takes a big drop in class and gets a good post.  (5) KIMBERLY R is only one for forty on the year but finds a good spot to do some damage.  (9) A NITE TO REMEMBER doesn't seem to win but hits the board a lot; use underneath.

Race 7

(8) CAGE FIGHTER just missed last out, finds an easy spot, and looks to be versatile.  (9) JD'S ECHO has won two straight and looks to have gained some confidence; fires early. (4) REVY REVRAC gelding put in a huge effort at Maywood in last start.

Race 8

(1) GAMBLE ON THE GIRL filly has made the most money on year and gets the best post.  Three-year-old is an eight time winner on the year and should transition to the big track nicely.  (2) BLUEBIRD JETTART filly steps up in class after a win but would need to pace faster.  (4) WELCOME TO WALMAC put in a game performance in this class two back and has a big chance.

Race 9

(4) PERFECTLY PEACHY was parked the mile last out and should be a big price in a weak field. (2) FALL CREEK BANDIT gets a good post and looks to be in line for a good trip.  (7) FRAHER HILL VICTOR was also parked last out but showed good late kick prior.

Race 10

(1) SERGEANT STRYKER never got into the mile last out but had been awesome in his last few. (4) MECHANICAL ART was used hard last time out and needs a trip.  (7) W WHITE COMET I believe the gelding has the most upside in the race and could be sitting on a big effort.

Race 11

(2) COME N BET IT takes a big drop in class and owns one good move.  (1) BURSTING BLAZE gets the rail and looks to be in line for a ground saving trip.  (7) GAME BELIEF has won two straight at this level from off the pace; short price.
