Balmoral: Sunday 6/14 Analysis


Race 7 - $25,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (23 - 36 / $85.80): FOX VALLEY PIPA (6th)



Race 1

(9) BLUERIDGE ADILENE has been knocking on the door and faces a much easier group.  (10) DANDY'S BEAUTY came out of the blocks fast but has been really bad as of late.  The pacer missed the gate last start but has flashed ability.  (7) ADDIE ROSE filly comes into the race off a decent qualifier.

Race 2

(8) PINSTRIPE PLAYER should offer a much better price and just needs to find a way into the race.  (9) FOX VALLEY HARRAH raced gamely last out getting the victory and picks up the top driver; threat.  (3) AMAZED has slowly been progressing and didn't miss by much last start against the same bunch.

Race 3

(5) FOX VALLEY ZIP needs a good drive from a provisional pilot but should offer the better price of the contenders.  (6) HARPER VALLEY BOY did not race well last out despite the victory.  The pacer will offer low value and will need a better effort.  (3) BINGO PRINCE has yet to win a race in nineteen career tries; use underneath.

Race 4

In a field of first time 2-year-old starters, (3) FOX VALLEY ADDISON gets sent out for proven connections off a dominating qualifier.  (6) FOX VALLEY TIRAMISU filly flashed good gate speed and will likely be forwardly placed.  (8) SARA'S TERROR was the driver's choice and really kicked home nicely in the qualifier.

Race 5

(1) MY FUNKY FARKLE trotting mare was racing gamely prior to the tough trip last out.  (3) FOX VALLEY YOKO looks to be primed for a good effort third start back.  (7) PERSAUSIVE LOOK is prone to a miscue from time to time but owns a good burst of speed when timed right.

Race 6

(2) FOX VALLEY PIPA just needs to stay pacing for a big chance against a suspect bunch.   (5) THE DOE takes a big drop in competition in for a tag; threat.  (8) ROCKNROLL CRYSTAL will look to make it three straight wins; fires early.

Race 7

(8) RYLEIGH'S LILLY had no shot last out after getting away behind a lagging horse.  The pacing mare just needs a good setup to score.  (7) SHINE N SHIMMER was a game winner at this level two starts ago.  (6) DP ANGEL also scored at this level last start but could need more; command a price.

Race 8

(3) LOVE U FOREVER well bred trotter has tons of upside and just needs to stay trotting for a big piece.   (4) MAGIC BABE picks up a huge driver change and looks to be one of few contenders in the race.  (9) BANDS MUSE has been competitive at this level but will need to find a way into the race; use underneath.

Race 9

(6) MISS PAT WEISAR has been sharp in recent and beat this same group last week.  (8) SUN DREAM gets sent out for hot connections and will be firing with a purpose early.  (5) ANIGHTWITHWILMA mare was the driver's choice; threat.

Race 10

(1) RUSSELL L pacer makes his third start of the year off a layoff and should be primed for a nice effort. (2) BELL VALLEY BILL takes a significant drop in class but needs a good setup; fires late.   (3) NANCY'S SKYSCAPE has come up short late in his last few but is a threat at this level.
