Balmoral: Sunday 8/3 Analysis


Race 7 - $25,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (31 - 53 / $129.00): BOBBY B BREEZE (5th)

Spot Play: L A CAMCHARGER (10th)


Race 1

(3) ELLA TEEL lightly raced filly makes her third start back off a long layoff for proven connections.  (9) SCAT KITTY CAT mare had everything her own way just couldn't fight off a better opponent last out; threat.  (6) WE ALL BLEED RED lacks stamina late and is probably best used on the bottom of your tickets.

Race 2

(4) SLOANE ELISE has lots of room to improve and has shown a big burst of speed.  (1) FOX VALLEY YOKO was good last out just had too much to do.  (3) PT KAYE is three for three lifetime on the fair circuit and tries her luck on the big track.

Race 3

(1) FOX VALLEY KIT two-year-old faces older but has been getting better with every start.  (3) FOX VALLEY ADENA has burned cash in two straight but does have talent.  (4) BEST LEGACY is just rounding into racing shape and could be sitting on another improved effort.

Race 4

(3) SOUTHERNCOMFORTZONE two-year-old just needs to mind his manners against a suspect bunch going for a big purse.  (5) CRUSIN VALOR was super in the qualifier and could be one of few threats to the top choice.  (6) BULLDOG BENJI gets a new pilot and could get a piece late if he stays trotting; use underneath.

Race 5

(4) BOBBY B BREEZE has been trotting some decent miles and faces a much softer field.  (5) LUVALADY well bred mare will have more to offer and has won two of three.  (7) SPEEDY ALBER has been used very aggressively and could use a smooth trip.

Race 6

(3) POWERFUL POE was excellent last out and should offer a nice price.  (1) FOX VALLEY VETO faces his toughest task year to date against much older more seasoned opponents but has really blossomed this year.  (2) ANTS INER PANTS was sharp earlier in the year.  A good effort from the 5-year-old mare makes her a threat to win.

Race 7

(3) PUT TO THE TEST is a major player at this level and has been very consistent.  (6) RUSSELL L has been knocking on the door and just needs a good drive for a chance late.  (4) MASTER JEEVES will likely take heavy tote action second start in a new barn; use caution.

Race 8

(6) JOYFUL GAME has been sneaky sharp and could have more in the tank with honest fractions up front.  (9) VAL'S VAY filly has come a long way and raced better than the top choice last out despite being picked off late.  (4) MAZEPPA HANOVER comes off two straight wins but faces tougher; use underneath.

Race 9

(7) SURCLASSER was bet way down off a big morning line last out scoring easily.  The gelding owns a lot of back class and could be ready to string a few victories together.  (5) FANCY LABEL trotting mare hasn't had much of a chance in her last few with some bad posts.  The 5-year-old is better than what she shows.  (8) SO PHOTOGENIC mare is inconsistent from week to week but a good effort puts her in the money.

Race 10

(8) L A CAMCHARGER was the driver's choice last out going a huge mile.  The 4-year-old now makes his first start for a red hot barn.  (3) GALACTIC STAR is on some kind of a roll pacing a lifetime best last out.  (9) MAJOR MALE well bred stallion is a threat at this level with some racing luck.
