Northfield: Wednesday 11/16 Analysis


Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: MARGARITA MAN (7th)

Spot Play: BOUNTY (5th)


Race 1

In a wide open race, (5) MORELAND FLASHBACK will offer a big price and had some decent late trot last start.  (6) VALENEOUS filly is one of few in the race with a pari-mutuel win.  (2) DEFENDING CHAMP gets an excellent post and should be in line for a better trip.

Race 2

(2) METRO'S TWIST has some positives adding lasix coming off a win in the qualifier.  (3) LIMA ILLUSION has room to improve against weaker.  (6) YONDERCOMESAPONDER lightly raced pacer also has room to improve in his third career start.

Race 3

(2) ROCKIN H DASHING O will look to make it two straight at this level.  (9) RUGGED HEART beat a similar bunch last start; threat.  (1) ECHO'S ANNIE burned cash last week off of soft fractions; use caution.

Race 4

(1) FOLLOW THROUGH should be much closer turning for home this week; threat.  (4) TIMELY FINESSE has just been racing evenly and could use a good setup.  (3) LIMA RITCH is very inconsistent from week to week.

Race 5

(1) BOUNTY will look to rebound down in class benefiting from the best post.  (2) ACTION-EAR-TO-EAR has just been racing evenly but is capable at this level.  (5) NANNIE OAKLY picks up the top driver against much weaker.

Race 6

(9) BETTER TO BELIEVE well bred pacer should find this spot much more to his liking.  (5) KIRKTONS CREDIT is one of few contenders in the race and will offer a nice price.  (4) CHICAGOSONAROLL will look to make it three wins in four starts.

Race 7

(7) MARGARITA MAN takes a huge dropdown with the top driver.  (9) ALLSTAR-JOSH shows some good miles but has question marks coming to the small track.  (3) QUANTUM CASHMAN put in two good efforts in a row.

Race 8

(3) ONEFINEJIMMERJOHN raced well a few weeks ago against a slightly better bunch.  (4) MODEL NINETYFOUR will look to make it two straight at against similar.  (9) COLD HEARTED SHARK gets sent out for the top barn but has been inconsistent from week to week.

Race 9

(5) CRAZOLO five-year-old is just now back in racing shape and should be ready for an improved effort.  (1) WHERES THE CLICKER gets the best post in a field full of question marks.  (4) ERGO HANOVER could need a start but was sharp in the qualifier.

Race 10

(1) ARTS-ROCKSTAR picks up a huge driver change; threat.  (8) GAMBLERS ANONYMOUS shouldn't be counted out even with the tough post.  The mare's last effort might be good enough to repeat.  (3) MS SOLONGBYEBYE has always been camera shy; fires late.

Race 11

(1) P L DRAGON might offer the better price of the contenders.  (5) PROMISED THE MOON veteran pacer was sharp last start winning for the first time in more than two years.  (6) ART BETTER NOW picks up the top driver in against a suspect bunch.

Race 12

(3) FLYING MUSCLES should be much closer turning for home this week.  (4) MAKIN GREEN LAVEC has made the most money in the field on the year.  (2) HELLO CHIPPER trotting mare looks to be in line for a nice trip up close.

Race 13

(5) GUN SHOW gelding gets a big post edge on his main rival.  (8) IMA NUISANCE if the stallion can find a way to get towed into it or a decent early spot off the gate he can threaten.  (2) RIVER CITY has been competitive in two straight.

Race 14

(5) JULIANA'S DIRECTOR was impressive last week against similar.  (7) KATIE AND J will need more to pick off the top choice.   (9) BONJOUR MADAM has yet to win on the year but is one of few in the race that's shown a good burst of speed.

Race 15

(4) LYNARD picks up a big driver change in a field full of question marks.  (9) WINTER CRUISE burned cash at this level last week; use caution.  (1) GUNNIN' FORAFIGHT gets the best post against a suspect bunch.
