Northfield: Wednesday 10/29 Analysis


Best Bet: DON’T BETREI ME (8th)

Spot Play: TOES (3rd)

Race 1

(2) JAY JAY REDSKY has been rapping and tapping on the door and should be ideally placed throughout but needs a bit more stamina than he has shown. Gets the call to reach down and might what he needs. (1) HIGH HEELS N SPURS was outkicked in last two and also needs a shot of toughness to get it done. (3) TIMER has won a fair share of races this year as well as some seconds and thirds but not much of that going on in recent days.

Race 2

(4) SMOOTH SAILOR showed modest improvement in last and modest improvement off that effort is all he needs to get it done this evening. (1) MANARTICA has the pole and has been roughed up in last two. (2) GOODNITE WILBUR should be close throughout and could get lucky.

Race 3

(2) TOES has been competitive last three and faces a very beatable field. (7) BUILDING WEALTH flashed some early speed two back and some late speed in last. (6) SUZELLE HANOVER was off stride most of last but prior two were decent efforts facing better.

Race 4

(1) B QUITE MARVELOUS draws rail third straight. Won on the front end two back and was nailed late in latest. (4) NOMINAL HANOVER drops and fits much better this level. (3) SPECIAL LADY D wired the field in last. Should give it a go from here and can stalk the speed if she gets to the rail.

Race 5

(1) LASER LUCY just missed in last with strong rally. (6) S F SCORPION won for fun two back but faltered in last from post eight. (2) MUCKMUCK WOODCHUCK was hindered by the post two back and some traffic in last.

Race 6

(9) GILLA DREAM needs to clear early traffic but has enough late speed to get a win and escape the 2014 run of zeros. (3) PAIR OF EYES found the front from the second tier in last and gave it a go but was second best. Should have the lead easier in here and give it a go again. (1) POWNAL BAY MAGIC has the rail but has found ways to get parked last two. Getting parked from the rail is more difficult but it has been done.

Race 7

(5) SANDBAR SLUGGER was a roughed up beaten favorite two back and never got involved in last. Both were over sloppy tracks. (4) CATALINA KID can improve tonight with a heads-up drive. (2) GUNMANS ACE has been close to the lane in last few and can hang around for a share.

Race 8

(5) DONT BETREI ME shipped in sharp, came up second best with a tough trip in last. (4) FRANCO NATURA N wired lesser three back and has been right there in last two facing better. (3) STORMY GHOST finished full of pace in last and cannot be overlooked.

Race 9

(3) LEIGH ANN doesn't win often but then none of these has been doing that this year. She returns to the site of her last victory which was a down the road score last month. (2) JEN ROCKS just missed in last with late rally. Has `just missed' too often in recent to think she can `just get there' but just missing again may just be what it takes to score the exacta. (4) TROTTIN ON OVER made the costliest of breaks in last after some dynamic efforts.

Race 10

(3) WELCOME WAGON should nail these with a strong finish. (9) WESTERN KISSED will be tough if he clears traffic and there is enough early speed to think he can get away well even from the second tier. (2) MR GREEN put in another good but losing effort last time out. Can bring home the green in very well-matched field of battlers.

Race 11

(4) DANNYS MAN takes a significant drop and should be along in time. (1) CANNAE BARRON has the rail and will be close when it counts. (3) ALLAMERICAN FARBO ships in and has faced beter in career but seems to have forgotten how to win.

Race 12

(3) DALLAS SEELSTER scored handily in last with big finish at a big price and faces similar. (9) JACK FINN seeks third straight win and need only escape the second tier. (6) SONICPEDIA has been paying the bills with wins, second, thirds, etc in most recent races and should be closing in the lane.

Race 13

(3) WIT AND WISDOM was used hard in latest. Two back was late closing effort. Takes a drop in company, moves in and looks like the one to beat. (5) ROYAL SIR was second best off the pocket trip in last as he shipped in and improvement makes him the threat. (2) LIGHTNINGINTHESKY has shown little in recent sloppy track efforts. Will be better tonight from this post and over a fast track.

Race 14

(3) RADAR LOVER has flashed some form last three all versus slightly better. (1) FELICIA HALL has the rail and will be ideally placed. (7) BRAGGIN HANOVER was parked for life two back; proved second best with good trip in last. The beaten favorite cannot be overlooked.

Race 15

(4) SUNBURNED VERN closed a ton in last to just miss. (3) HOWDY PARTNER was used hard two back from post eight but came up short as the favorite. Toured the track in last and will be tough in here. (5) TYMAL TRITON has been roughed up last few and racing luck may be all he needs to find winners circle for first time in 2014.
