Balmoral: Sunday 8/24 Analysis


Race 7 - $25,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (33 - 58 / $135.40): ENCHANTRESS LADY (8th)

Spot Play: LIZZABELLE (7th)


Race 1

(1) FOX VALLEY SKYLAR gets a big driver change and owns a good burst of speed.  (6) NANNIE OAKLY is a lightly raced 2-year-old that sprinted home nicely in her last start and has good upside.  (2) ALL EYES ON HER is a well bred filly that looks to be heading in the right direction in a field with few contenders.

Race 2

(2) REX PASSUS comes into the race with some question marks, however, if the pacer minds his manners he will be tough to beat in for a tag.  (1) I'M REAL GOOD is tough to leave off the top spot while racing gamely.  (4) LD'S DASH has been sharp despite only one win on the year but will need more.

Race 3

(1) MUSCLE KIT faces older in her second life time start but comes off an impressive debut.  (5) OMYGOODNESS has shown some recent improvement and finds a very inexperienced field.  (4) SCAT KITTY CAT has good gate speed but has yet to put it together late when it matters most; use underneath.

Race 4

(6) JOYFUL ROCK is a well bred filly that should be up to the task with a good trip.  (7) HAPPY TIMES THREE looks to have a lot of upside in the short field.  (2) ANNETTE'S Z TAM makes her second career start off a sterling debut.

Race 5

(9) SHOTGUN SEASON doesn't look the best on paper, but a few weeks ago would have been a heavy favorite against his bunch.  (2) FLIGHT LIFTED came up empty last out but has shown better.   (4) DAVE'S ART owns only one lifetime win and is probably best used underneath; command a price.

Race 6

(3) CLEVER UPSTART has been knocking on the door and could be ready to earn his first victory of the year.  (1) FANCY LABEL was a game winner last out and is capable of competing at this level.  (7) MASTER OF EXCUSES is just that but probably should be considered the horse to beat.

Race 7

(3) LIZZABELLE drops in for a tag of an improved effort.  (4) RIDE SALLY should be much closer turning for home; threat.  (7) MEET ME TONIGHT comes into the race off a victory but faces a slightly tougher bunch.

Race 8

(3) ENCHANTRESS LADY looks to make it four wins in as many lifetime starts.  (4) TINY MITE has some ability but will need much more to get past the favorite.  (5) POWERFUL FORCE was given a good steer last out but has trouble staying trotting; use underneath.

Race 9

(2) PARKLANE SPARKLE is a well bred filly that will be tough to beat if she can stay focused.  (4) SEA WATCHER went a big effort last out, just missing to a nice opponent; threat.  (7) GET THE TERROR has a lot of potential but has yet to take the next step.

Race 10

In a really weak and inconsistent field, (4) MEGYN HOTSPUR has flashed some ability and finds a good spot to make it two straight.  (9) LIL ANNIE will offer a big price and could pick up the pieces late with some racing luck.  (10) KARMA KWEEN needs to ration out her speed and is one of few with upside in the race.
