Balmoral: Sunday 7/13 Analysis


Race 7 - $25,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (25 - 44 / $104.80): LITTLE MS CHRISSY (6th)

Spot Play: JUST FOR FUN (4th)


Race 1

(7) DONNIE DARKO well bred colt picks up a catch driver that could signal the trainer has him ready in his debut.  (8) BERTO ADALINA is a huge threat with a victory against better but does get the outside post with a suspect driver.  (6) ACT OF VALOR nice-looking trotter should be much improved in his second lifetime start.

Race 2

(2) FOX VALLEY ADENA filly flashed some talent closing up decent ground in her first lifetime start; big chance.  (5) MIRIAM'S JET put a line through the sophomore pacer's last line as she had no shot; threat.  (4) ALWAYS A JEWEL filly pacer could be starting to figure out what she's supposed to do and could be ready for a good effort.

Race 3

(2) FEETONTHEDASHBOARD filly put in an eye-popping victory last out unleashing a wicked brush; driver's choice.  (7) JOYFUL ROCK didn't miss by much to the top choice last out and looks to have a lot of room to improve.  (1) MR LELAND'S FILLY comes off a fast qualifier that doesn't translate to near the same time and could need a start after shipping from out east.

Race 4

(2) JUST FOR FUN has a ton of ability and could just be rounding back into racing shape.  (1) MACK'S GOLD BAND made a miscue last out but had been racing gamely prior; threat.  (5) FANCY LABEL mare also has some breaking issues but can trot really fast when she minds her manners.

Race 5

(7) H-AND-N DHO HAILEY went from awesome to empty last out but a repeat of the start prior puts her on the board.  (4) BONJOUR MADAM didn't take to the turns at Maywood and is much better suited for the big track; fires late.  (6) WILD BERRY MUFFLER mare is 0 for the year but has flashed a good brush in a few starts.

Race 6

(6) LITTLE MS CHRISSY is reunited with a decent pilot and should be ready for a much better effort.  (5) POWERFUL POE also gets a good driver change and has more ability than most of the field when right.  (9) FOX VALLEY VETO impressive 3-year-old faces older but could race from the back; use caution.

Race 7

(2) GENTLE JANET gets a post edge on her main rivals and just needs a trouble free trip for a big chance.  (7) JUST BY DESIGN got an easy win last out and faces a similar field; threat.  (8) PIERCE MY HEART mare has flashed some big moves but needs a lot of racing luck; use underneath.

Race 8

(3) OUR MISS LILY well bred mare gets a huge driver change and raced much better last out.  (9) WINSPIRATIONAL was sneaky good last but needs to find a way into the race.  (5) KIMBERLEY R rarely wins and usually never at this level; use underneath.

Race 9

(4) MY MISS CAROLINE mare sports an impressive sixteen for nineteen lifetime record and just needs to stay trotting for a good shot late.  (6) ANTS INER PANTS exploded late last out just missing; big chance.  (5) EASTER TEKA was racing gamely before being roughed up last start; threat.

Race 10

(10) LD'S DASH was full of pace last out with nowhere to go; fires early.  (1) PUT TO THE TEST gets the best post, takes a big drop in class, and will be used very aggressively.  (9) FOX VALLEY IVAN needs to avoid an early battle for the top for his best chance; command a price.
