Northfield: Tuesday 11/25 Analysis


Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: HA HA (7th)

Spot Play: TIMER (3rd)


Race 1

(2) ACTION EAR TO EAR should be able to get away well from the post and has flashed some late speed from time to time. (7) SUZELLE HANOVER roared home in last to win going away. Moves out, steps up but can obviously be right there on best. (5) VICTORY CANDY MAN faces much weaker and looms a serious threat on that alone.

Race 2

(5) RULING V C N was nailed on the wire in last. Faces slightly weaker and this beaten favorite really has no excuses. (9) SAND HICKORY seeks third straight win at this level. They were his first two wins of the year. (1) TIELER BEA HOTSPUR draws the rail and can land a share. Has not excited much in recent days but should suck along for a mini payday.

Race 3

(9) TIMER has shown some early speed and some late speed. Last was a disaster but from here with speed inside, he should get away well and loom large in the lane. (1) MAILMAN BOB faces weaker, draws the rail but will still need a heads-up drive to get it done. (2) UPLAYTHEGAMETOWIN was righter in last until fading in the lane. Needs to stay flat for best.

Race 4

(1) NUTMEGS GIGLIO had the trip in last but tired. Beaten favorite gets the nod to atone. (4) CHEEKY FOOL had no shot in last from far back in the pack but picked off a few foes with good wide rally. Three back was long uncovered tough-trip third place finish. (5) SHANNONS BOY SCOURT was out a long way in last. Can get it done with a covered trip but has not found winning easy to figure out this year.

Race 5

(1) BROADWAY BOUND drops, draws the rail and should be hard to deny. (2) BALLYKEEL MIKE ships in and faces what seem to be weaker foes. (3) CINCINNATI MYSTRES will go well from inside and cannot be ignored.

Race 6

(1) NITEROI OAKS missed the boat in last so to speak lacking transportation. Seeks third straight and should give it a go from the pole. (2) S F SCORPION has the two hole and should stalk to the lane. (5) TYMAL BLING will rally late and could get lucky.

Race 7

(3) HA HA was unlucky in last but moves in. Should get a better trip and the last laugh! (1) GLISSANDO has speed and the rail. Ships in and has good record to date on the year. (8) RENATA wired the field in last. Has shown late speed in recent. Needs to overcome the post to find a seat on the rail. If she can do that she will threaten.

Race 8

(4) DETROITER seeks fourth straight. (5) FIXTHEDEFICIT was nailed on the wire in last. Will have to come from off the pace to beat the choice. (1) VODKAINDUCEDDREAMS has the rail and will be around to the final turn. Could get lucky if top two duel it out.

Race 9

(5) DRAGON RIDGE wired lesser from the pole in latest as the prohibitive favorite. Watch the board and see where it goes. Seems to be bet when he is going to try the front end. (6) DABUNKA was second best in down the road effort in last. Faces same and with some racing luck can make his presence felt. (1) TERROR OF THETRACK won last with late rally. Draws rail and can hardly get a bad trip.

Race 10

(2) K C COLT yielded, retook and jogged in last. (1) FOREVER GOOD brushed rallying the final turn in last and won impressively. (5) FIERCE DESIRE has been pounding on the door in recent. Had the lead and weakened, rallied gamely uncovered, rallied late off a covered trip. All to no avail. Will find the right formula soon.

Race 11

(1) UF FAST FEELIN left, tucked, broke in last but came back strongly. Missed from the rail two back but he gets the vote to take down the field. (5) MAKEMINE BLUEGRASS was a tough-trip game second best two back. Cannot ignore. He has been battling in all recent. (2) ROCKY MY BOY showed speed but failed three back. Will have to come from off the pace tonight but it will take an improved effort.

Race 12

(3) FORTUNE SAILOR won with strong rally. Steps up a bit but can win this with similar effort. (4) WEST RIVER VICTORY has been right there in all recent efforts and looms as the main threat. (5) COLBY D has some late speed and that is what it takes to best the rest.

Race 13

(7) PAPER LUCK gets the worst of in post position draw but has been well bet last two. (2) LIMA RITCH moves in off last. It was a poor effort and if you skip past it there are some credible performances. (1) TRESNER SEELSTER has the rail and fits well from post one.

Race 14

(5) ABSOLUTE PURITY came uncovered to the third panel, challenged, took the lead and held well in last. Faces similar. (8) ITSALLABOUTTONIGHT has rallied late in all recent races and gets a long look despite the post. (4) SLOT ARTIST has seen nothing but wet tracks in recent days and has flashed late speed last two outs.

Race 15

(4) ARTISTIC DREAMER has early speed and can carry the day with late close. (2) JP ORAZIO flashed late speed in last and slight improvement makes him a threat. (3) HES A BEACHBOY faces weaker looking for payday.
