Balmoral: Sunday 3/30 Analysis


Race 7 - $20,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (3 - 4 / $14.60): SEEYOUATTHEFINISH (7th)

Spot Play: DUNESIDE MATT (3rd)


Race 1

(7) DIXIE REBEL well bred 4-year-old makes his second start in a new barn and finds a really weak field.  (5) FREAKY FAST has just been racing evenly and needs a trip.  (6) BLAZINFORCE GONSPI does own a decent move if timed right.  The trotting mare could need a start off the layoff.

Race 2

(2) PRINCE PONDER faces a much easier field than his last and gets the best post.  (5) SUNSET DREMER did need the start last out and had a terrible trip; threat.  (1a) WALKING TALL is part of a three horse entry that will probably offer low value; use caution.

Race 3

(6) DUNESIDE MATT offered a nice late kick on the end of his mile and has just as good a shot as any.  (4) JIMMEYS GOTTA GUN Indiana bred pacer makes his third career start and should improve.  (2) BLACKJACK RIVNDEL despite racing greenly the pacer showed some promise in his second lifetime start.  Four-year-old didn't miss by much after being far back early against the same field.

Race 4

(1) BRIGHT LIGHT well bred filly has a ton of upside and should be much sharper in her second try.  (1a) ALWAYS A ROMANCE second part of the entry is also bred to be a good one.  (3) MAE FLYNN is more experienced than most of the field, has good gate speed, and should be ready for a good effort; threat.

Race 5

(8) SEEKIN FOR GLAMOUR got picked off late last out but is the horse to beat.  (7) MOON BAY DANCER raced extremely well last start and has beaten much better than this in her past.  (1) LIQUER mare needed her last effort and draws the best post.

Race 6

(8) BIG CHOCOLATE gets the post advantage on his biggest competition which gives him a huge advantage off the gate.  (9) JB OUI OUI gets unlucky for the second week in a row with the parking lot post.  I doubt the connections sit back early; threat.  (7) ANTS INER PANTS put in a really nice start off the bench and is one of the faster trotters in the race.

Race 7

(5) SEEYOUATTHEFINISH has been sharp of the layoff and finds the right field to get her picture taken with a good effort.  (1) JUSTHAVENTMETUYET don't sleep on the pacing mare as she is much better than what is shown on paper. (7) LEANMEAN NORMAJEAN can handle this field at her best but she hasn't been that in awhile.

Race 8

(3) FOX VALLEY SHOUT showed a big burst of speed last out against a similar bunch.  (2) LOCK AND GO drops in class, finds an inconsistent field, and needed her first effort .  (7) WOLF CREEK PASS veteran trotter gets sent out for a trainer that has had some recent winners.  The stallion closed up nicely last race and makes his third start off a long layoff.

Race 9

In a tough race to handicap (7) T E'S ZENYATTA gets the nod for coming into race the sharpest firing home nicely .  (3) COLE BLUE outclasses the field but hasn't been primed and ready early in the season; command a price.  (2) CAMS SAHBRA mare does have ability and can really crank it up at times.

Race 10

In a field with few contenders (9) FORTUNE DOR has a big chance despite the worst post.  (7) LOFTY NATIVE looks to be just now back in racing shape but does need some racing luck with a smooth trip.  (1) EDEN WAY adds lasix for the first time and has had excuses in his first two starts.
