Balmoral: Wednesday 1/23 Analysis


Race 7 - $20,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet ( 3 - 7 / $14.60): ANTS INER PANTS (6th)    

Spot Play: LITTLE MORE RAM (2nd)


Race 1

(1) CARMENS WAY Gelding has improved tremendously last three starts and now draws the rail.  (8) DESERT COWBOY is saddled with the worst post but in a very weak field; owns one move.  (2) JONATHONISOOT is 0 for his career but does get a good post in an a soft field.

Race 2

(6) LITTLE MORE RAM was used aggressively last out and raced really well.  Eleven-year-old gelding finds a suspect field.  (5) WHO gelding looked to have some pace before coming up empty last out.  (4) BESTNOTGETINMYWAY gelding needed his last start and should show some improvement.

Race 3

(4) FOXY THREE SOCKS mare has been right on the wire a bunch but only has one win to show for her effort.  (8) MISS PACIFIC raced good last out making up a lot of ground late.  Mare has shown versatility and should improve after being sick. (10) BARUS APACHE JEWEL mare was given a perfect trip and raced erratically.  Five-year-old needed the start and will be blasting early.

Race 4

(4) BOILER HEIDI HO has now clipped off two in a row and faces similar competition.  Mare also gets a good post in a short field; versatile. (2) ANIGHTWITHWILMA was loaded with pace last out at Maywood with nowhere to go.  Mare is reunited with regular pilot and should be sitting on a good effort.  (3) GT MISS ROYAL mare dominated impressively last out; faces tougher.

Race 5

(6) LD'S DASH gelding is a new horse under the new connections and has romped in last two; faces tougher.  (8) WESTSTAR'S ALTAIR five-year-old gelding raced greenly last out just holding on; use caution. (1) TWO BEERS AWAY four-year-old was too far back in last and should be closer turning for home with the good post.

Race 6

(8) ANTS INER PANTS mare is razor sharp right now and finds a softer field. (3) FOX VALLEY ARROW trotting gelding has raced consistently since shipping in and is in a good spot to get a piece. (1) MISCHEVIOUS JESSE gelding keeps improving and draws the rail.

Race 7

(5) BANJOE HOTSPUR mare has finally found a field she can handle but will probably offer decent value; threat.  (4) FOX VALLEY LILAC has shown dramatic improvement in her last two starts and looks to be in a good spot.  (2) ITZALASSI mare always tries hard but might have tailed off a bit despite her last win.

Race 8

(2) RICHERTHANRAYNO mare looked impressive last out digging in late.  Five-year-old looks to be pacing fastest of all.  (1) COLEHEARTEDWOMAN had a really tough trip last out but now gets the best post.  (3) JANET ROSE could benefit from some fast fractions up front; use underneath.

Race 9

(7) JOE'S MISS DAISY drops back down in class and has shown some nice efforts.  (10) BIG ZIPPER filly has talent but is saddled with the worst post; fires early.  (2) ELLAMAKAILY got a perfect trip last out but couldn't get by.

Race 10

(6) HOOSIER AMBER mare had a good one off the layoff and should move forward in a soft field.  (2) SWEET VALENTINE mare takes a good drop in class and should fit this group much better; command a price. (7) LOVERS HOLIDAY mare needs some a hot pace up front to close into for her best chance; fires late.
