Balmoral: Wednesday 12/10 Analysis


Race 6 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (53 - 104 / $205.20): CATCH THE WAVE (2nd)

Spot Play: SS TOMMY TURNER (9th)


Race 1

In a really wide open and evenly matched race (5) OSAGE exits a better race and will offer a big price having yet to win on the year.  (4) SAND TARYN was used aggressively last out and could use a smooth trip for his best chance.  (6) CAMILLE ROSE owns the best win of the field on the year and will be firing for position early.

Race 2

(7) CATCH THE WAVE two-year-old gelding was an impressive winner last out going a big three-quarters of a mile.  (5) LITTLE MAN MORAND faces a much easier field than his last few; threat.  (4) NO MORE TERROR looks terrible on paper but will offer a monster price.  If the pacer can mind his manners he could hit the ticket.

Race 3

In another tough race to gauge (7) IF I DIDNT DREAM  needs to be closer turning for home but is one of few in the race that has shown a decent burst of speed.  (5) PERFECTLY CLEAR put in a good effort last out and should have more late with a smooth trip.  (9) MIRIAM'S JET closed nicely last out needing the start; threat.

Race 4

(7) SANDCASTLE GIRL picks up a huge driver change and would have been a big favorite against this bunch a short time ago; big chance.  (4) LOVINMESTRAIGHT bumps up in class off a nice win but looks to offer low value; use caution.  (8) HIGH SCORE HEIST will offer a big price and finds a weak and inconsistent field.

Race 5

(3) INDIAN CREEK KATIE just needs some pace to close into for a chance late.  (7) SUN DREAM mare is the horse to beat on paper and has been much improved over her last handful of starts.  (4) SEEKIN FOR GLAMOUR raced gamely last out not missing by much cutting the mile.  IF the pacer can work out a cover trip she could have a shot late.

Race 6

(8) JOYFUL GAME mare could offer a much better price coming into the race off a miscue; fires late.  (1) CHILLY BREEZ raced gamely last out, finds an easier bunch, and gets the best post.  (3) WESTERN BOUDOIR has shown a good burst of speed and has been racing much better despite the break last out.

Race 7

(3) YOU'RE MY HERO takes a big drop down in competition and does his best work from off the pace.  (1) SPEED RACER gelding has two straight wins off a layoff and could have more to offer.  (2) CHIPPER has been knocking on the door despite being 0 for thirty-one on the year; threat.

Race 8

(3) BLUE GEM made it look easy last out against a similar bunch for a hot barn.  (9) MEET ME TONIGHT came up short last out after being sharp prior.  The pacer could be the only threat to the top choice with some racing luck.  (2) VAL'S WAY filly was taken out of the race last out and looked to have pace turning for home before being knocked out.

Race 9

(10) SS TOMMY TURNER has been improved since the recent qualifier and gets sent out for a hot barn.  (5) LD'S DASH looks terrible on paper but is capable of a good effort; versatile.  (1) PARTY IN THE PARK is due for an improved effort at a big price one of these weeks.
