Balmoral: Sunday 6/2 Analysis


Race 7 - $25,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (28 - 54 / $96.00): PAIN RELIEF (3rd)

Spot Play: CLASS STAR (4th)


Race 1

(4) DIVINATION filly trotted a very fast mile against much tougher last out and just needs to mind her manners to find the winners circle.  (1) MY COVER GIRL well bred filly got the job done in her last start and now draws the rail.  (5) ROSE RUN ONEIL three-year-old gelding had a tough trip in his first start back but should be much sharper; use underneath.

Race 2

In a short and inconsistent field (1) COLEHEARTEDWOMAN drops and draws the rail.  (7) KITTY O'BRIEN mare hasn't had much kick late when she's usually at her best.  The 6-year-old should be much closer turning for home.   (6) WILLING HEART mare made up some ground late last out but would need a lot of luck to pull the upset.

Race 3

(5) PAIN RELIEF gelding was a game winner last out and faces a similar field to the one he just beat drawing off late.  (4) PRAIRIE THUNDER gets a good starting post and should offer a huge price in the exotics.  (3) GOLDEN NUGGET three-year-old was heavily bet in his first start of the year which tells me the connections liked him. Gelding should show significant improvement second start back.

Race 4

(8) CLASS STAR gelding has two wins on the year and probably the most upside in the race.  (3) SOUTHWIND METALLIC well bred trotter finally broke his maiden last out showing a new dimension, off the pace; improving.  (1) LAD'S LEGACY eight-year-old stallion has been hitting the board with consistency and gets the best starting post.

Race 5

(2) MRS WEST ONE four-year-old was disqualified from a win last out but did race gamely and could get the jump on his main rivals.  (9) SKYWAY MODEL filly pacer shows a lot of speed and looks to be just learning how to race; threat.  (8) RHINESTONE ROBIN filly has a lot of ability and did get a victory off a short layoff at Hoosier last out.

Race 6

(5) BS EMILY'S SAILOR three-year-old needed her last start and just came up a bit short.  Gelding has shown a good burst and could benefit from a fast pace up front to close into.  (3) HOLY MCMOSES gelding will offer a big price and has the talent and speed to win if he stays pacing.  (6) BRING IT ALL three-year-old pacer appears to be getting better with each start and should be in a good spot turning for home due to the short field.

Race 7

(4) NIGHT'S ALL NIGHT mare is just now back in racing shape and has put in three good efforts in a row; threat.  (6) KIMBERLY R has also been sharp off a layoff and just needs a smooth trip to be in the money.  (3) SUN DREAM mare takes a big drop in class and could be sitting on a good effort.

Race 8

(2) FALL CREEK BANDIT gelding had a great first start off the layoff closing nicely after saving ground.  Four-year-old gets a great post and should be closer turning for home.  (3) GREATESTOFEASE well bred filly was a game winner last out from a tough post and has a lot of upside in a race filled with question marks.  (6) KK'S BANDIT mare made a break last out as a big favorite.  If the 4-year-old stays trotting she's the horse to beat.

Race 9

(1) SPECIALLY SPORTY gelding draws the rail and just needs a fast pace up front to close into for his best chance.  (7) LD'S DASH has now been second in four straight starts.  (3) JUST ENOUGH gelding made a break leaving last out but now drops in class; threat.

Race 10

(7) WHATASWEETFLIGHT mare is now making her third start back off a layoff and put in a good effort before tiring late and just needs a good trip to hit the board.  (5) DUNESIDE BRAT filly faces easier after some decent efforts at Hoosier; threat.  (6) KISS ME FIRST well bred pacer has a lot speed early but lacks stamina late.  Mare comes off a super qualifier and could hit the board if she rations out her speed.
