Northfield: Thursday 9/25 Analysis


Best Bet: TIMER (1st)

Spot Play: SOUTH PARK KID (14th)



Race 1

(2) TIMER has speed and draws inside. Last was a late closing effort in a Billings race and he looks like the right one in here. (5) HIGH STAKES BANKER gave a good account of himself going uncovered two back but was roughed up on the rim in last. (4) TROTTIN ON OVER has been right there out of town in all recent outings.

Race 2

(2) U F SCOOTIN WHOSUR has two wins in three lifetime starts and is hard to look past in here. (6) ITSALLABOUTTONIGHT was used hard to the lead in last and faded late. A better trip should help his chances. (9) FREE BEA should be able to get around any early traffic and stay close enough to threaten.

Race 3

(1) ANYTIMEANYWHERE is sharp now and gets the nod over these. (7) BUSTED FLAT has been facing this kind in all recent and hitting the board regularly. (3) ES MUCHO will not have to be mucho to get a piece of this in his third lifetime start.

Race 4

(3) PLAYMAKER showed some gameness two back in a third-place finish and gameness may be all it takes to score in here. (2) AMAZING SUZY will take advantage of the post and be in striking position when it counts. (4) ROYAL STYLE has been close and competitive in most recent outings.

Race 5

(2) KEYSTONE SWAGGER takes a drop in company. (3) THIRTYTOFINALSCORE missed the bus in last scheduled start? Finished second after a scratched-injured line, so he could be in the photo. (1) S F SCORPION has the rail in a field of confirmed losers and earns a look this level.

Race 6

(4) BET ON BLUE gamed out a win in last coming uncovered and faces much the same. (1) BCS GOLDEN GIRL almost won a race two back but lost it to the top one. (8) INDOMITABLE SPIRIT wired the field at this level, but that was from post four in last out.

Race 7

(2) GUNMANS ACE will pick up a check tonight, so why not the lion's share? (1) BEAU JET has speed but needs some more determination. (4) FULLY LOADED GUN was too awful in last to be serious. Throw it out and he could be close at the end.

Race 8

(2) A PRINCES TALE seeks third straight off a string of late closing efforts. (9) ALADY FOR SURE has gone well in all recent including a couple of efforts from this post. (3) ST ELIANS FIRE can be close with a top effort.

Race 9

(1) G ROD ships in and draws the rail after racing on an `off' track last few. (4) MAXIMUM VIKING wired the field in last and steps up a bit. (3) DONE FOOL ME NOW fits competitively at this level from this post.

Race 10

(4) ACTION EAR TO EAR seemed to be in position to take his shot in last but racing room was tight. (6) MOMA JEANS CROWN was first over and second best in last. (2) DREAM KID just missed uncovered a few back and moves to a better post than he has seen in a bit.

Race 11

(1) MAJOR SPEED drops and draws the rail. (6) CATALINA KID sucked along for second best in last outing. (7) MECHANICAL ART flashed some late speed in his most recent race but the post may hurt.

Race 12

(1) MISS RILEY should atone for last week's miscue. (8) SAMMY SAMMY SAMMY has to get away well and find the rail to be most effective, but if he does he should be trouble judging by a couple of second-place finishes in recent. (6) LARRY P has a similar need but closed steadily last two.

Race 13

(6) NOAHS SHARK showed speed two back and went as far as he could before tiring. Last was a tough luck speed duel but he came closer at the wire. Can he improve a bit and get some racing luck? (3) MANARTICA drops a bunch in company. (7) REDICATION has to overcome the post but flashed some late foot in most recent venture.

Race 14

(1) SOUTH PARK KID draws the rail and was seen drawing a sigh of relief when he heard. Vet will give it as much as he has. (2) PANDAPOCKET moves in and should improve over last few. (5) GOODNITE WILBUR looks to have enough late speed to be in the hunt all the way.

Race 15

(7) LINCOLN JIMMY ships in and has been bet with enthusiasm back east.  (2) SOUTHWIND MAIZE went down the road in last after a just-miss second place. Sharp enough to be obviously the one to beat. (1) MR DYLAN won here a few back facing slightly weaker.
