Harrah's Philadelphia: Pick Four Spotlight for Thursday 4/6


$1 play:  1-5 / 2-7-8 / 2-4 / 6-7  $24

Race 7

LIFE'S DEVOTION made his first start for the Greenwood barn last week following a series of qualifiers and just missed after being last early throughout.  Prior to that he was just a couple lengths off the FFA horse Special T Rocks; deserves to be favored even with low percentage driver.  EDUCATED FOOL had no shot last out from post 8 against the heavily backed Ryan Again; finally gets away from the rival for the first time in three starts.  WOOP D DO BAZZLE can close to pick up a share.

Race 8

THINKYOUCANDANCE goes third start off the claim for Salerno; was cooked last out at Pocono when leaving into a :26 flat opening quarter from the outside post.  Won here two back.  CARAMEL CHINNO has been first over in each of her last three races; connections demand respect and is probably capable with an easier setup.  Robinson drops ONE NIGHT in for a tag and looks to make it two straight wins from post 8.  NELLY HANOVER might be a bit overbet coming off the win for Herrara.

Race 9

THE CHANCELLOR finds his way to this bottom level condition at Philly after failing to fire last out in the C-1 at the Meadowlands.  Age might be catching up to this now 7-year-old but even still he seems too good not to beat these.  We'll see.  SOAPY SAP was respected enough last out to be favored over Definitely Mamie and ended up chasing that rival home in 1:55:3; tough trying mare.  TASTY MAX had plenty last week once he found clearance.

Race 10

IMA GOLD DIGGER N took 6/1 support in his North American debut last week against Modern Family and only missed in that race by a couple lengths.  Down Under import has some class.  WHERE TO HANOVER goes for four straight but now moves out of the NW5 condition; will be tested.  MOHEGAN HANOVER flew late in his first start for Cunmulaj two back here; can go with these.
