Balmoral: Sunday 6/29 Analysis


Race 7 - $25,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (23 - 38 / $98.40): MY LITTLE BIT (6th)

Spot Play: POWERFUL POE (8th)


Race 1

(5) ROLLETTE filly has been progressing nicely and finds a spot to gain some confidence.  (6) POWERFUL FORCE raced gamely last out going a big effort but does have some breaking issues.  (1) GUMCORNER BLACK mare needed her first race and should be much sharper second start back.

Race 2

(7) MAZEPPA HANOVER raced well in her first start back for a new trainer.  The pacer looks to have some ability in an evenly matched race.  (2) FOX VALLEY KYLEE had a tough time from a tough post last start but the 3-year-old has shown a good burst of speed; threat.  (4) SISTER'S KEEPER has lacked stamina late in her first few starts; use underneath.

Race 3

(2) LD'S DASH gelding gets an enticing morning line and has been sharp in his last two.  (4) ME TARZAN is a threat at this level with a trip.  (3) JPS MINI ME looks terrible on paper but does have the ability to upset at a price.

Race 4

(6) ONE JAZZY LADY filly has a ton of upside but has yet to reach her potential.  A good effort wins convincingly.  (4) IGETAGOODFEELING has started to show some improvement and could be the only threat to the top choice.  (5) MATTE ROYALE lightly raced filly made a break last out halfway down the stretch but has flashed some talent in her brief career.

Race 5

(6) FOX VALLEY ABSOLUT mare just missed last out getting snapped by the horse sitting a perfect trip.  The mare owns some back class and should be able to handle this group.  (3) ALWAYS A ROBIN faces a much softer bunch and could be ready for a better effort.  (1) LIZZABELLE made a break going for the lead but had been sharp prior; use underneath.

Race 6

(4) MY LITTLE BIT should have been much better at Maywood last out but that could boost the price.  (2) BUONCAMMINO filly has a big engine and could upset if she minds her manners.  (7) FOX VALLEY AMANDA pulled the upset last out off a perfect pocket trip but will have to do much more; use underneath.

Race 7

(7) HEATH fits at this level and should offer a big price.  (3) CASINO CAPTOR will look to fire second start in a new barn; big chance.  (2) SHISWELL'S DELIGHT was sharp off the layoff but has been dull in his last two.  The gelding finds a suspect bunch and a good effort puts him in the money.

Race 8

(6) POWERFUL POE four-year-old was awesome in the qualifier, has the most ability in the field, and will be tough to beat if he stays trotting.  (5) NEW ZION drops in class and faces a much easier field.  (4) SUPER SONIC FLASH gelding is streaky but seems to race better off a layoff.  The trotter has a ton of speed and does have two qualifiers under his belt.

Race 9

(3) ALWAYS TALKING has always had ability and could finally be rounding into racing shape.  (6) SECONDS LATER 3-year-old filly went from awesome to empty last start off a perfect trip.  If she races back to the start prior she could be the horse to beat.  (7) BONJOUR MADAM closed nicely last out of a ground saving trip last start; threat.

Race 10

(4) READY drops back down to a spot where the pacer can do some damage.  (5) WELL DUNE has shown signs of stepping his game up in the last two; threat.  (2) COTTONLAND GEM eight-year-old stallion has been consistently pacing good miles but needs an ideal trip to hit the top spot.
