Northfield: Tuesday 11/11 Analysis + Pick Four ticket


Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Jeremey’s $1 Pick Four Play:

4,5 / 2,3,8 / 3,6,7,9 / 1 = $24



Spot Play: ZAMBRANO (2nd)

Race 1

(9) NITEROI OAKS well bred stallion should have a chance to score at a price if he stays trotting.   (6) TEXAS RIDGE was an easy wire to wire winner last out but likely needs more to hit the top spot.  (2) HEZA RUBE lays over the field on ability but has trouble minding his manners at this track.  If the 4-year-old stays on gait he wins by open daylight.

Race 2

(4) ZAMBRANO comes off a miscue but was close at this level the start prior.  (5) CAPTAIN JACK is 0 for the year but does find a weak and inconsistent bunch.  (7) UP FRONT CARL will offer a big price and picks up the top driver.

Race 3

(7) NORMA'S ROSE classy trotting mare has lost a step over the years but can get a victory with an easy lead; fires early.  (8) SAINTFRANCIS gelding needed his last start and owns a class edge on most of the field when ready.  (1) GOTTA LUV CASH has a bunch of positives going.  The 4-year-old adds lasix for the first time, makes his second start in a new barn, and gets the best post.

Race 4

(5) RENATA gets a huge driver change and has shown the most ability in a weak bunch.  (4) GLAM WORLD went a very tough trip last out.  The pacer is one of few who has been competitive at this level.  (9) NOT AGAIN WOMAN owns a decent burst of speed at times and looks to be in line for a ground saving trip.

Race 5

In a very tough race to handicap (3) FOLLOW A DREAM at one point this year would have been a heavy favorite against this group.  However the pacer has been dreadful as of recent.  (1) INSTANT REFUND pacer makes his third start off a layoff and finds a wide open field full of question marks.  (2) IRON N STEEL pacer has one win in thirty-six starts; use underneath.

Race 6

(3) CHIP'S DREAMER has been facing slightly tougher and just needs a smooth trip to be in the mix.  (1) VICTORINTHEVALLEY has been second in six straight starts without a victory on the year.  However the gelding trotter keeps the top driver.  (2) TORY drops down in class and should be in line for a good trip up close; threat.

Race 7

(7) MYSTICAL BROTHERS finds a field in very poor form.  The 5-year-old pacer just missed last out in a new barn.  (9) JP ORAZIO will offer a monster price but needs a competent drive by a low percentage pilot.   (3) EXACTORMAN has some question marks but his best effort makes him a threat.

Race 8

(4) FIXTHEDEFICIT was closing nice ground late last out against a better bunch.   (5) CC JERMEY owns a win against similar competition and has shown a good burst of speed.  (2) SOAKING UP THE SUN three-year-old is one of few in the race with upside but has gait issues.

Race 9

(8) JACKSONS SPIN picks up a top driver and just needs to find a way into the race.  (2) MOTOMAN adds lasix and gets sent out for new connections; threat.  (3) ROCKET HOSS looks to have some ability in a weak field, however the pacer does get a driver that rarely wins.

Race 10

(7) BURSTING BLAZE is capable of pacing a big mile at a price for an inconsistent trainer.  (6) SKULL OF ROSES just looks to be racing evenly but is a threat with a fast pace to close into.  (3) FIERCE DESIRE owns good early gate speed which should put him in the mix.

Race 11

(1) STRANGE HANOVER just missed last out against a much better field; short price.  (2) JAWORSKI could be one of few threats to the top choice sitting up close.  (3) HERE COMES WHITEY has yet to win on the year but has been facing better; command a price.

Race 12

(7) FLYING MINDALE comes into the race off an impressive win and picks up a better driver in a really weak field.  (3) FRISK EM GATOR rarely wins but gets a great post to try for a piece late.  (6) Q ZILLA will look to make it three straight but will need more from a tough post.

Race 13

(7) DEXTER JIG makes his third start off a layoff and picks up a significant driver change.  (4) CMR WINDMACH should offer a big price in a wide open and evenly matched race.  (3) FOREVER HAPPY needs a smooth trip; command a price.

Race 14

In a tough race to gauge (4) CAMN YANKEE was the top driver's choice in an inconsistent field.  (8) FOUR STARZ Q will need some racing luck from a tough post but has shown the ability to pace a big mile at times.  (9) LUCKY IVAN owns a burst of speed and should be better second start over the track.

Race 15

(5) FOX VALLEY MERCURY finds a much softer spot and could pick up the pieces late in the right scenario.  (4) CATCH THAT ANGEL pacer will need to ration out his speed for a chance to hit the top spot; fires early.  (2) DIGGERS REST N has just been racing evenly and is probably best used underneath.
