Balmoral: Sunday 7/12 Analysis


Race 7 - $25,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (27 - 44 / $98.40): JETOMATT (8th)

Spot Play: TAL WI WI (6th)


Race 1

(3) SARA'S TERROR filly has tons of upside and should only improve off her nice efforts.  (2) CHAR N MARG filly makes her third career start for proven connections.  The 2-year old pacer has came flying late in all her races.  (4) FAT AND POE could be the sleeper in the field coming off a deceptively nice effort.

Race 2

(10) DREAMS OF HER well bred filly will need to find a way into the race but has a nice pedigree against a weak bunch.  (5) MR STRATA just needs a similar effort to his last start to hit the ticket.   (4) EARLS PRINCE was parked the mile last out against much better.  The 3-year-old should offer a big price in a field full of question marks.

Race 3

In a tough race to gauge, (5) VITAL TERROR paced a big mile last week against much better.  (3) SHHRAYRAY gelding can pace up a storm when he minds his manners but has had breaking issues; command a price.  (1) PAINKILLER also looks to have some of the kinks worked out after some hiccups.

Race 4

In a field with three contenders, (2) SOUTHERN SPECIAL three-year-old trotted a huge mile last out and any repeat of that effort puts him right there.  (3) CAPTAIN GREEDY will look to make it five straight wins; short price.  (6) FOX VALLEY QATAR two-year-old champ looks to have come back to the pack some after a promising start to the year.

Race 5

(8) DRY CREEK DIAMOND should offer a big price in a wide-open and evenly matched field of first-time starters.  (3) LEXIROSE filly pacer should probably be considered the horse to beat, however the trainer has a very poor record with horses making their first start of the year.  The 2-year-old could look to sit on a helmet and try for a piece late.  (9) PRETTY STELLA kicked home nicely in his first start over the track and just needs to find a way into the race; threat.

Race 6

(7) TAL WI WI was very impressive last week setting a lifetime mark.  The sophomore trotter could be ready for another big effort.  (4) PERSAUSIVE LOOK has been racing gamely and just needs a good setup to score.  (3) FOX VALLEY YOKO filly was brought along slowly this year and is just now clicking on all cylinders.

Race 7

(5) OFFICIALLY YOURS four-year-old will offer another big price and could use some racing luck in an evenly matched field.  (7) DUPAGE'S Z TAM has a nice pedigree and comes into the race off a career effort.  (4) SIR ARTHER D just missed in two straight at this level; threat.

Race 8

(2) JETOMATT filly has been driven conservatively in her first two lifetime starts both showing good ability.  (5) FRONTIER SARAH just missed last start pacing a big mile.  (1) FOX VALLEY LYN comes into the race off a solid qualifier but probably needs a start; use underneath.

Race 9

(5) JOYFUL GAME has been racing gamely finishing in second place in four straight.  The 5-year-old mare will need a fast pace to close into for her best chance; fires late.  (4) JUST BY DESIGN scored a victory against much weaker last week and will need more; command a price.  (8) SEEYOUATTHEFINISH if ready could handle this bunch no problem, however the mare has been off her game for awhile.

Race 10

(6) FOX VALLEY PIPA always starts slow but can come a big back half and just needs to be close turning for home.  (8) ALWAYS REESE Indiana bred filly has much more talent than what she shows on paper; threat.  (5) FOXY ELLIE drops back down to a level she can compete.
