Balmoral: Wednesday 5/21 Analysis


Race 6 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (14 - 22 / $58.60): TIME OUTA JAIL (7th)

Spot Play: CAMS SAHBRA (8th)


Race 1

(1a) CHOCOLATE SURPRISE raced really well in his debut and should only improve.  (6) SWISS MOCHA has some upside and faces a softer field than his last few.  (8) RED SOLO CUP comes off of two awesome qualifiers but gets sent out for a barn that could be aiming for a different spot.  If the well bred trotter has his nose on the gate he will probably win.  If he's lagged off the gate two or three lengths you'll probably have your answer.

Race 2

(2) PARKLANE DIAMOND nice looking filly has a ton of potential and will be ready for a good effort off the bench.   (1) ODDS ON TOPAZ adds lasix for the first time; the only question mark is her health coming off a scratch.  (6) OLA HANOVER Indiana bred filly raced well in her first lifetime start and is a threat on paper.

Race 3

(6) CRUELLA DE VILLE well bred 3-year-old filly trotter makes her career debut and picks up a hall of fame pilot; big chance.  (8) LOVIN YOU FOREVER mare is inconsistent but finds a suspect field full of question marks.  (2) MAPLE GROVE TOM was just even in his debut but does have room for improvement in his second lifetime start.

Race 4

(7) KITTY O'BRIEN should offer the better price and will be charging hard late.  (6) TOPVILLE BRIDGETTE gets sent out for lethal connections winning at a big clip.  The pacer is tough to go against but will offer low value.  (8) WESTERN BOUDOIR could jump up with a better effort off dull lines at a price; use underneath.

Race 5

(6) ROYAL TABS if the well bred filly can't beat this field she would be a huge disappointment.  (2) KEYSTONE SWAGGER is trotting faster than most of the field but has been very dull; use caution.  (7) RAPHAELL rarely wins but does have a decent burst of speed.

Race 6

(7) NICE PARTY mare is two for two on the year and finds another easy spot.   (8) FOX VALLEY FLORA filly makes her sophomore debut and has some upside off a nice qualifier.  (9) ALWAYS TALKING filly has some issues but does have ability.

Race 7

(3) TIME OUTA JAIL three-year-old colt makes his third lifetime start and finds a weak field.  (1) FOX VALLEY VETO finished his 2-year-old season strong, adds second time lasix, and gets a good starting post.  The only question is if the trotter needs a start.  (6) BOBBY B BREEZE couldn't parlay a perfect trip last out and is probably best used underneath.

Race 8

(1) CAMS SAHBRA gets a different driver and the best post in a wide open race.  (4) KIMBERLY R mare rarely wins but just needs a smooth trip for a big chance.  (2) GENTLE JANET mare has been improving and was a game winner last out.

Race 9

(8) SHOOTINFORTHESTARS has some ability and gate speed, however the pacer needs a trip with a low percentage driver.  (1) SUNSET DREAMER impeccably bred gelding paced a lifetime best last race but has disappointed as a heavy favorite before; use caution.  (3) WELL DUNE needed his first start and gets a decent starting post.
