Balmoral: Sunday 1/4 Analysis


Race 7 - $25,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: NA ZDROWIE (4th)




Race 1

(6) TOUCH THE SKY crushed at this same level last start and looks to have tons of ability.  (2a) ARLO GRAM was used aggressively last week and has room to improve.   (2) LANCE GRAM second part of the entry raced well last out and might have turned a corner.

Race 2

(2) DUNESIDE PERTTIE just missed last out and has been much better for a new barn.   (5) EVA BELLA lightly raced filly has some upside and finds a soft spot.   (7) YOUROLDLOV-ELETTER mare has been improving with her recent starts and could have more to offer.

Race 3

(7) WINDOW WIPER mare drops back in for a tag where she has won two straight.  (6) MELODIE HOTSPUR mare gets sent out for capable connections and will look to make it three straight wins.  (2) SEEKIN FOR GLAMOUR mare could be the sleeper in the race making her second start for new connections.

Race 4

In a really weak field (6) NA ZDROWIE has picked her game up for new connections and faces easier competition than her last few.  (1) LITTLE SISTER has lacked stamina late but does own a good burst of speed.  (5) PERFECTLY CLEAR could threaten with an easy early lead.

Race 5

In an tough race to gauge (1a) PRAIRIE THUNDER seems to be hit or miss but does own a good late kick with the right setup.  (2) POWERFUL PILOT has not won in a very long time but did show improvement last start.  (7) MAKE ME FLY gelding has a ton of upside but could need a start off a really long layoff.

Race 6

(7) JUSTICE JET four-year-old was too far back last out into a ridiculously slow pace.  The trotter should be much closer turning for home.  (5) FOX VALLEY VETO has been razor sharp and is the only threat to the top choice.   (6) MASTER OF EXCUSES gelding pulled off the upset last out but wont get the separation he needs this time; use underneath.

Race 7

(8) ODDS ON ROLOMITE is inconsistent from week to week but a good effort puts him in the mix.  (10) JOVANNA just raced evenly last out but is capable of a good effort.  (7) DANCINONTHETABLE owns some gate speed but has lacked stamina late; use underneath.

Race 8

(5) HOTMONES drops to the bottom level off two nice efforts.  (7) SUN DREAM has been pacing consistent miles at this level for a hot barn. (8) MOON BAY DANCER scored a victory last out and is right back in against similar.

Race 9

(1) MARZY BEARZY well bred pacer just needs a smooth trip for a big piece.  (3) EARTHLY DESIRE owns wins at this level and looks to be in line for a ground saving trip up close.  (2) MS SOLONGBYEBYE raced well last start and also gets a nice starting post.

Race 10

In a really inconsistent group (3) ER MONICA has been facing much better and comes off a nice effort at Maywood.  (8) WINDY CITY DIANE jumped up with a lifetime mark last out off of terrible looking lines and has to be considered a threat; driver's choice.   (2) MIND ERASER has popped at some big prices and takes a significant drop in class.
