Northfield: Monday 6/16 Analysis + Pick Four ticket


Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Jeremey’s $1 Pick Four Play:

7 / 1,2 / 8,9 / 5,9 = $8


Best Bet: PRIME TIME POPPA (6th)

Spot Play: VICTORY CANDY MAN (3rd)

Race 1

(1) FORTUNE SAILOR was overmatched last out but finds a much softer spot and will be used aggressively.  (5) ANNIE'S MASTER mare should benefit from her gate speed if she can stay trotting.  (4) FULL FLORCE has good gate speed but usually lacks stamina late and is probably best used underneath.

Race 2

(5) RAMEMBER takes a significant drop in class and could use an early battle up front to close into.  (3) IMPRESSIVE JET also bumps down in class and has shown a good burst of speed with a good trip.  (2) I'M JUST CRUISIN was the driver's choice but has just been racing evenly; command a price.

Race 3

(5) VICTORY CANDY MAN gets an enticing morning line, has beaten better, and gets a top pilot.  (3) SUPER LUSTRE has been a different trotter in his last three and looks to be getting better with every start; threat.  (4) MAD COW LISA has an outside shot at playing spoiler in the right scenario.

Race 4

(1) JOJO IN THE SKY could be a bit overlooked and should be able to take advantage of the rail.  (6) LOST JEWELS went a big effort last out just missing.  The pacer owns the most back class in the field and has really started to turn it around.  (4) SOMECAM has been sharp in a new barn showing good versatility; threat.

Race 5

(5) LIFE LONG HANOVER faces a much easier field and should benefit with the driver change.  (6) MAMA MADE ME BLUE had no chance last out with the tough post.  The trotter has proven connections and will probably try and hit the top early.  (9) JESSE'S MESSENGER mare doesn't always give her best effort but was an easy winner last start at this level.

Race 6

(2) PRIME TIME POPPA needed his last start and raced gamely first up not missing by much.  (5) DON'T BETREI ME has a decent burst of speed but needs to be closer turning for home.  (1) I'M SO BLUE should be ready for a much better effort third stat in a new barn.

Race 7

(9) FIERCE DESIRE has had some bad racing luck but that can change with a fast pace to close into; threat.   (1) RIGHT ON TIME gelding pacer is back at the right level and should be in line for a good trip.  (2) YARROWS CRUISER should offer a big price but is best used on the bottom of tickets up in class.

Race 8

(7) GALE FORCE HANOVER had his win streak snapped last out but it took dull cover from the worst post to do him in.  The well-bred trotter will be tough to beat with a smooth trip.  (6) ANNIE'S ROCKETMAN could be the only threat to the favorite and will look to get separation early.  (8) NOAH COUNT has a ton of upside but is handicapped with the worst post against older; use underneath.

Race 9

(2) LONESOME ATTACK finds a much softer bunch than his last two.  The speedy pacer will look to go coast to coast.  (1) JUST CROWNED has been racing gamely despite only one win in seventeen starts.  The 7-year-old could be in line for a pocket trip.  (9) COLD BATH was a game winner last out and should also get an inside trip; use underneath.

Race 10

(8) ROSE RUN LOGAN trotting gelding has a target on his back and will have to go a big trip to win but he's done that ten times out of fourteen starts on the year.  (9) JULIANS CAESAR gets sent out for the top barn in the country and has upset the top choice at this level.  (3) HEZA RUBE has a good brush most of the time and has been much better off the pace.

Race 11

(9) I FOUND MY BEACH faces much easier competition but will need to navigate a trip from the second tier.  (5) LYONS JOSEPHJNR consistently hits the board and seems to race better forwardly placed; threat.  (7) SIR JACK went a big effort last taking no prisoners but does face better.  The 5-year-old could be tough if me makes the top early.

Race 12

In a weak and inconsistent field (4) SASSY OSBORNE hasn't been able to get over the hump this year but has been knocking on the door.  (5) CHIPS GALORE keeps the top driver and has tactical gate speed.   (6) STORMY GHOST pacer has more to offer than what he shows on paper but is probably best used underneath.

Race 13

(2) CHASE THE SUN is on a huge roll and surprisingly offered decent value last out; fires early.  (1) FORTUNE'S JENNA veteran pacer wasn't himself last out and will look to rebound with the rail.  (3) ROYAL CAM-HALL couldn't keep up with the winner last out but did pace a good mile.

Race 14

(3) KENNAIRN LIFE SIGN needs to slow the pace down early for his best chance late.  (1) ALIGNED HANOVER takes a big drop in class, gets the best post, and should be ready for a better effort.  (4) THREE ROCK NIGHT hasn't fired in a new barn yet but could be ready to do just that at a price.

Race 15

In a tough race to handicap (3) ALLAMERICAN MASTER has raced his best at this track, gets a good starting post, and is versatile.  (9) CRY FOR CASH has been inconsistent from week to week but the nine-year-old pacer's best is good enough.  (4) EAGLE FLIGHT has been sharp off a layoff and had a tough trip last out; threat.
