Balmoral: Wednesday 5/7 Analysis


Race 6 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet (13 - 17 / $52.80): ROYAL TABS (8th)



Race 1

(4) MYSTICAL WISHES well bred filly needed her first start of the year and should be much better.  (2) TWIST N TOUT three-year-old gelding improved in his second time out and has upside in an evenly matched race.  (9) LOVIN YOU FOREVER mare could pass some horses for a piece late at a price; use underneath.

Race 2

(1) BLUE RIVER pacer makes his third start for new connections against a much easier field.  (3) BO'S SO HOT put in some decent efforts at Hoosier and has flashed ability.  (2) PABLO'S SKY DANCER has yet to hit the board in eight career starts but will pop sooner rather than later; threat.

Race 3

(7) TROT FUDGE SUNDAE Illinois champ can do it either way but will probably forge to the top for a confidence-builder against younger.  (3) HUDSON JESSE filly was nails last year besides one unfortunate miscue.  The sophomore trotter has bigger things on the docket but could pass some horses sprinting home late.  (4) JUSTICE JET gelding had the best year of all last year.  The 3-year-old has two qualifiers under his belt but also could be using the race as a tune up.

Race 4

In a really weak field (8) JERSEY SHORE has the ability to win with any kind of a trip and should offer a nice price.  The pacer made a break last out after being started and stopped multiple times.  (7) EDEN WAY gets sent out for a hot trainer with certain horses; threat.  (3) INCREDIBLY SPORTY will likely be a heavy favorite but is two for thirty-four lifetime.  The 4-year-old finds another weak field and would be dangerous left alone on the front-end.

Race 5

(2) LISTMYDEDOT made a break before the start last out but was a sharp winner prior.   (3) CARDINAL WIND needed his last start coming off a scratch and faces easier.  (4) A LOCAL BAND just about cashed last race but trotted very evenly; command a price.

Race 6

(3) NANCY'S SKYSCAPE never had a chance last out with the way the race unfolded.  The gelding was a game winner for new connections the start prior; big chance.  (1) LOOK MA NO HANDS the connections horses are extremely inconsistent from week to week.  The pacer will either be empty or loaded with pace.   (4) ONCE A CHEATER was burned up thru a fast half last out but could hit the ticket with a smooth trip.

Race 7

(4) DANCINONTHETABLE filly showed some heart in her first start of the year.  The 3-year-old finds another suspect field and should show good improvement off that last effort.  (3) SECONDS LATER was much better last out just getting picked off by a better opponent.  (2) CYBER GAL filly has shown a big burst of speed when she minds her manners.  If everything goes her way she could have an outside chance to hit the top spot.

Race 8

(2) ROYAL TABS filly has a chance to be really good this year; big chance.  (1) VIN was sharp last out gunning down the favorite first up and has room to improve.  (5) DON'T MISS A TWEET filly should have had more late last out; she will be tighter third start back.

Race 9

(6) JUSTHAVENTMETUYET driver opted elsewhere but the mare appears to be on the upswing despite being hounded the entire mile last out.  (8) OUR MISS LILY nice looking mare faces a tougher field but has a lot of upside.  (7) PARK LANE CRYSTAL drops in class, was the driver's choice.  The pacer is capable of winning but has been off her game for quite some time; use caution.
