Balmoral: Wednesday 12/19 Analysis


Race 7: $20,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool


Spot Play: LCB SANDY (9th)

Race 1

(2) LOOK AT THAT CHICK mare was an impressive winner last out and gets a similar field; short price (9) AMERICAN EMPRESS two-year-old filly is saddled with a bad post but does have the talent to overcome it.  (10) CAPTAIN COURAGEOUS made a miscue last out but picks up top driver and owns gate speed.

Race 2

(6) SIDE POCKET HARRY was a game winner last out and looks to be pacing faster.  (5) UNCLE NOAH gelding was used multiple times before tiring late in the mile; versatile (2)LD'S DASH closed nicely last out and gets a good post in a soft field.

Race 3

(3) JUXTAMOONLITKISS a very nice debut for the filly and should improve; big chance. (5) MISS PACIFIC was used hard last out and tired late.  Filly shows a good burst and should be forwardly placed.  (6) WALKINTHEMOONLITE gets a good drivers change and just missed last out after being used twice.

Race 4

(5) BUBBLER squandered a really good trip last out but finds a very weak and inexperienced field. (7) DALLAS JONES was flying at the end of her mile last out.  Filly should be much closer turning for home.  (6) FOX VALLEY BONITA filly is coming off a short layoff but looks to be pacing faster than most.

Race 5

(6) ITZALASSI ten time winner on the year had been racing gamely prior to his last few and looks to be in a good spot. (10) BANJOE HOTSPUR mare is saddled with the worst post but does own gate speed and will be firing early.   (8) KITTY O'BRIEN never got into the mile last time on the sloppy track but mare could be sitting on a good effort.

Race 6

(8) FULL STEAM AHEAD Gelding loves to fire early and hits the board a lot. (5) MACK BRENLIN gelding is 0 for 13 on the year but does show good late kick.  (7) UPBYFIVE was to far back in last and gelding could use some fast fractions up front for his best chance.

Race 7

(1) BECKY B SKIPALONG was a game winner out of the ten hole and now gets the best post.  Four-year-old mare looks to be in line for a good ground-saving trip.  (6) MCDANCE DESIRE filly comes off a bit of a disappointing effort in last but a repeat performance of a couple back would do the trick.  (2) ALLURING SHARK  looks to be racing erratically but has shown the ability to make speed.

Race 8

(7) SUPER SONIC FLASH is razor sharp just getting caught by classy opponent last out.  Gelding loves to win and is facing less.  (3) B FLY MCQUEEN filly chased top choice last time and wasn't off by much.  (9) CLEVER UPSTART gelding is very versatile and has been racing gamely.

Race 9

(4) LCB SANDY flew home from an impossible spot last out.  Filly should be a little closer turning for home and is facing an easier field.  (6) ONLYTHEYANKEEKNOWS first start for the new connections.  Watch the tote board early because filly could be sitting on a big effort.  (1) MOON BAY DANCER had a really tough trip last out but mare looks to be back in racing shape after a layoff.

Race 10

(4) BOILER HEIDI HO mare gobbled up ground when she shook loose late in the mile and now gets a better post; short price (1) GT MISS ROYAL went from awesome to empty last out but could have been bothered by the off track.  (9) WISCONSIN GIRL mare owns only one victory on the year but fields a class where she can be competitive.
