Northfield: Thursday 8/28 Analysis


Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: FRIDAYSCOMIN (3rd)

Spot Play: MYSTCIAL SAM (11th)


Race 1

(4) ANYTIMEANYWHERE qualified like a winner and that might be enough to earn a star in here. (8) THAT WAS YOU faces weak bunch but has to overcome the post. (9) ANASTASIA WIGGLED is a lightly raced miss who has to get away well from the second tier to have a chance.

Race 2

(4) RENATA has tasted victory recently and has flashed late speed in most of last few races. (3) BUCKSHOT EXPRESS made a costly break in last but at 70-1 what was he going to do anyway? (2) MJ CRUISER has post edge on most rivals but winning is not his forte.

Race 3

(3) FRIDAYSCOMIN won last and faces similar. (2) MOMS LOOKER has been close last few but needs some late energy to nail that win. (4) S MS TERMINATOR was up the track on Monday but his best can get him close in here.

Race 4

(1) RELLA ON ATTACK draws the rail and has no excuse tonight. (9) SOUTH PARK KID will have to clear early traffic but was bet fairly well in last and had a touch of late speed.(2) KING ME had nothing to offer on Monday but from the inside he can get involved early.

Race 5

(3) BUSTED FLAT rallied strongly to nail last, faces same and gets the nod. (2) FERRISWHEEL JUNKIE has been trying to get it done last four races and can argue through the lane. (5) STURDYS BABY was game enough to earn wins two and three back but broke in latest.

Race 6

(6) TIMER was a wire to wire winner two back and did the same in late July. (3) TUSCARORA BLUEROAN drops seeking a paycheck and despite a long win drought he has to be considered in here on the drop alone. (5) STIRLING ADONIS was tightened in last after a qualifier win two back. Lightly raced last two seasons, this one has yet to win a pari-mutuel race.

Race 7

(5) DIGGERS REST N gets a slight break in post position and a big break in company facing weak field of vets. (4) GOODNITE WILBUR had a flash of late pace in latest. (8) SPARE TIME GINO was parked long last two and has to find a place on the rail early. Despite the post this field is begging for a winner to show himself.

Race 8

(9) SOAKING UP THE SUN has late speed but has to clear the second tier. Once he gets involved he has enough to nail a win. (8) VODKAINDUCEDDREAMS is hard to fault off any of recent tries and has speed to clear to the lead even from post eight. (3) ROYAL STYLE has shown marked improvement last two.

Race 9

(6) MISS RILEY seeks third straight and faces same kind. (9) A PRINCES TALE was funky gaited early and lost a ton of ground. Late rush is hard to ignore. (7) CLASSICAL LOVE failed to fire in last but closed with trot three prior.

Race 10

(3) BLINDSIDED showed speed two back, late rally in latest. Twice beaten favorite has no excuses left. (2) SHOCKBYELECTRIC rallied off a ground saving trip in latest and from post two he should be ideally placed in the late stages once more. (1) ROYAL ONE has the rail and will argue early.

Race 11

(6) MYSTICAL SAM took some time off, qualified well two back and had late speed in last. Should be improving more for this one. (2) JAY JAY REDSKY won last on the front end. (5) TORY has been close and competitive in all but one of last six tries.

Race 12

(1) HARLEYHANKNJERRY had traffic in last and cost him his best chance. (3) UNLIMITED WINNER has been an unlimited second best in all recent. (4) IMALLEXCITED races second time in career. This 2YO was tightened in last and could be ready to graduate.

Race 13

(2) IM SO BLUE won last out of town and comes back trying to extend his new found talent. Vet faced much better when here through June. (4) FREDSABULLDOG should threaten from this spot. (1) R I P SPANKY will welcome the pole position.

Race 14

(4) GOLDEN SLIPPER was nailed in the shadow of the wire going down the road in last. Give her another shot. (3) CINCARDLE came up short this level in last but has faced better most recent. (1) CC DREAMER faded in her qualifier. Should show some life from the rail against this kind.

Race 15

(3) KING RICHARD needs just a touch of the famous lion heart to win this this.(4) WORRIES STAY SMALL takes a modest drop after weakening late in front end effort last time. (5) WATTAFINERUSTY showed improvement in last and faces slightly weaker.
