Northfield: Monday 9/22 Analysis


Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: HERSMAN (5th)

Spot Play: MASTER PINE (1st)


Race 1

(8) MASTER PINE has been better than these, has seen better than these and has beaten better than these. Gets the call despite the post. (5) VICTORY CANDY MAN is too sharp at the present time to overlook and is seemingly the main threat. (6) HOWDY DEWEY has shown some late speed from time to time and can nab a fair share on best.

Race 2

(3) WESTERN FELLA has been racing here, there and everywhere in recent months. Spent too much time uncovered on the rim in last and gets to these with right trip. (2) JUMPIN JACK J has gone well this level and this track in some recent outings. (5) AT DAYBREAK won last, ships back and has the late rally to nail tiring speed if things go his way.

Race 3

(1) CALLING A VICTORY roared home in last to notch a victory and gets nod to get another. (2) FULL FORCE was a beaten favorite in last and can atone on best. (4) NORDIC VENTURE had the good trip in last but was a bit short at the wire. Faces slightly weaker and that may be enough.

Race 4

(1) HALLIN was a beaten favorite in last despite a great pocket trip from the rail. Looks familiar but he faces slightly weaker and should be tighter tonight. In other words, no excuses accepted. (2) BAY SHARK came uncovered, loomed heading home but flattened out in last week's action. (8) HOT CYCLE has closed strongly three of last four and can be dangerous with a covered trip.

Race 5

(1) HERSMAN won two back this level, toured the track in last facing better. Drops back and draws the rail. (3) GEM HEIST has been banging at the door and drops down looking for the score. (5) ALLAMERICAN MAJOR fits competitively versus these and has three straight third places finishes on his slate. Will be looking to pay a few bills and give it his best.

Race 6

(5) ANNIES ROCKETMAN was nipped late two back over this track facing this kind. Won out of town and comes back looking to take another. (8) MYTHICAL HALL has been battling hard this level in recent days and the post doesn't seem to matter. (1) EDIT has speed and the rail.

Race 7

(4) MIDNIGHT DRAGON showed improvement in last and takes a modest drop in company. (3) DANNYS MAN won versus weaker two back, went evenly versus better in last. (9) ROYAL CAM HALL has a win from this post two back and earns long look in here.

Race 8

(4) THE CLASSIC Z TAM folded in last, drops back down to much easier level looking for another win before form spree fades out. (3) COLUMBIA ART has been faring well versus this kind. (1) BEEEYOUUUUUU has speed, the rail and two wins last three efforts. Ships back looking to nail a win.

Race 9

(2) MARYS DARVIN just missed two back this level. Faced better in last picking up minor spoils. Will be hard to deny this evening. (3) CABO was wide into the lane in last but flattened out. She has been sharp enough in all recent to give her a look despite facing somewhat better stock. (8) EDOM UP BLUE BOY has speed enough to overcome the post and has shown determination setting new life marks last two victorious outings.

Race 10

(1) BETTORS CHOICE has the pole and should be fresher enough heading home to be in the mix at the wire. (2) LITE ME UP had the trip in last and was second best. Has been sharp since return and earns long look in tonight's adventure. (8) BEANS AND WEANIES has been too sharp all of recent to ignore tonight despite the post.

Race 11

(5) TRUE TO MACH fits like a glove over these as he drops down looking for the score. (7) T RED was a huge winner in last two and has to be considered the one to fear. (8) FOX RIVER MARK is hurt by the post but will be a threat throughout.

Race 12

(2) SHARP ACTION wired weaker two back but was used hard at the start in last to clear the lead before tiring. From the inside he is the one to beat. (6) MISS LULU BELLE has faced better in all recent with some tough trips and is the one to fear.  (4) VIEWLANDER has to be considered at this level.

Race 13

(3) ROCK ME PLEASE ships in from Yonkers where he has been facing much better foes. (7) THE UNSUB will be tough if he makes the lead but the post hurts a bit. (6) CAN REPEAT has been battling last few and can make his presence felt.

Race 14

(6) LISLEA MORAN takes a significant drop in company and his last quarter speed seems to be consistently quicker than all of these. (5) HERE COMES WHITEY has been second best last two and looms as a three-peater in that role. (8) COACH KEN has the late kick to earn a share but faces better and moves out.

Race 15

(6) JEREME ROCKS saw his winning streak snapped in last but by only a neck or so. Gets the nod to find his way back to victory lane. (2) WOW POWER has speed enough to stay close all the way and from the inside post can hardly be tossed out. (1) STEVIE DIAMONDS takes a drop in company and draws the rail and may wake up.
