Northfield: Wednesday 10/22 Analysis


Best Bet: MY JUSTICE (5th)

Spot Play: STRONG TOGETHER (2nd)

Race 1

(1) WEST RIVER VICTORY just missed in last. Won three and four back. Has the rail, has no excuse. (4) MOMA JEANS CROWN has been battling last five efforts and looms as the main threat. (2) THAT WAS YOU has speed and drops.

Race 2

(3) STRONG TOGETHER has finished with pace last few and can get that elusive first win of the year with right trip. (2) POWNAL BAY MAGIC was parked forever in last from the second tier. Needs a better trip but should get it tonight. (1) NOT AGAIN WOMAN was uncovered a long way three back from similar post but should get a better trip in here.

Race 3

(1) HOLLYS SECRET has the rail and was well used two back. Took a tour of the track in last and needs only get an alert drive to be right in the mix. (4) BUILDING WEALTH flashed speed in last but tired. Tough if tighter. (2) CHRYSE made a costly break in last, left the course and sat in the rest of the way. Should improve off that tonight.

Race 4

(3) FOLLOW THROUGH has faced better in recent with a good second three back. Moves in and gets the nod. (4) STORMY GHOST won three back. Last two were steady trips around the oval. Should give it his best in here. (9) ALLAMERICAN JUNIOR was brutalized in last parked a long way before tiring. Needs to clear traffic, find the rail and rally late to nail have a chance even against this bunch.

Race 5

(5) MY JUSTICE has speed to find the rail, sense to yield for the pocket and late speed enough to get it done. Oh, that's what she did last time. Nothing breed success like success. Give her another shot. (3) MORGANS MAJESTIC has broke two of last three but two back was a down the road effort getting nailed at the wire. (4) NEELYS BOY has been trying all recent outings and earns respect off that.

Race 6

(3) EL PUNCHO moves in and has shown late speed enough to earn a long look. (2) BEAU JET moves in, faces weaker and if you can look past his last effort, the two prior were fair attempts. Three back he flashed some speed, two back he flashed some late rally. Last was a dismal effort but from post eight. (7) SANDBAR SLUGGER is rounding into winning form and needs to be watched. Might get lucky tonight but seems to need one more tightener from off the pace.

Race 7

(4) MR GREEN just missed two back as the short priced favorite. Last was a tight squeeze and he never had a chance to get his racing mojo working in the late stages. Should atone for the beaten favorite effort two back. (2) FRANCO NATURA N has speed and will be up close throughout. (1) REBEL JET has speed and the rail and can be forgiven for last effort from bad post.

Race 8

(1) SEE YA LATER DUDE wins if he can get his racing strategy right. From the rail he should not be uncovered until it counts and he has enough speed to stay out of trouble. Won off a pocket trip from similar post a few back. (5) NIRVANA GEAR wired lesser in quick order last time. (6) OUTAMYSPACE will be hard pressed to win uncovered but seems capable of a covered trip from here.

Race 9

(5) HAT was unlucky two back from post eight. Made a huge move to crush foes in last with an improved post. Obviously her best wins this and perhaps the price will be more rewarding than $.60 on the dollar. (1) SCREAMIN DREAMIN has the pole and the speed but endurance can be questioned. (9) ERICSKARRI has the second tier behind the speed and jogged as the favorite in last.

Race 10

(1) WELCOME WAGON scored handily two back, got parked for life in last from post eight. Looms as nothing but deadly from rail. (4) YARROWS CRUISER qualified well two back after layoff. Got the tightener in last and could be there to spoil the top one's anticipated victory dance. (5) GRAMS LEGACY ships in off some interesting lines at Scioto and earns long look.

Race 11

(3) HOT CYCLE scored easily with impressive romp last time. Faces similar and is hard to look past. (1) C G SATIN should work out a good trip from the rail but it might not be enough to outkick the top one. (6) SONICPEDIA moves out off some decent tries but should not be ignored in current form. Had a bit too much traffic to clear in latest to give best shot.

Race 12

(2) TALLADEGA HANOVER has faltered last two making what could have been winning moves. Gets a break in post position and could be right one. (5) LASER LUCY showed some early speed and some late speed in last. If she puts it together her chances are good in this well matched field. (4) FUTURE PAST was brutal in last after some really solid efforts. It might have been the sloppy track. A thrice beaten favorite in three of last four, she has to be given an outside chance despite last.

Race 13

(1) JULIES DAVINCHE moves in, drops and pops? (2) WESTERN KISSED has been moving around from track to track to track, post to post, etc. Gave it a strong try two back over this oval but was picked off near the wire. Should break the schneid but not sure where or how. Losing becomes addictive eventually. (6) BLUE PUNCH has been knocking at the door in some of recent but needs to knock harder.

Race 14

(1) B QUITE MARVELOUS wired the field this level against some of these in last and gets the nod to repeat. (3) HELLO CAMIE closed strong to be second best to the top one last time out.(5) GILLA DREAM showed some early spunk two and three back. Flashed some late life in last. Could get lucky if she puts it together.

Race 15

(1) CRY FOR CASH really has no excuse from the rail judging by last two races. Should be able to work out the trip it will take. (4) MATTOXS WESTERN shipped in, closed well and normal improvement makes him the main threat. (6) FLYING METRO should have cover and that could get him in the thick of the stretch rallies.
