Northfield: Wednesday 11/26 Analysis


Best Bet: STAR MASTER FOX (5th)

Spot Play: DR JACK’S SHACK (13th)



Race 1

(6) MUCKMUCK WOODCHUCK made a big move to the third panel to loom boldly but flattened. Has to earn a look in field begging to be beat. (7) BAR NONE will have to come from off the pace off a covered trip. (9) CANDY J seldom wins but should be able to avoid traffic from second tier with speed in front of her.

Race 2

(5) ITS SPIDER has flashed some late speed from time to time and gets the call with Merriman. (4) GALLOWS POLE closed well in last and current form may be all it takes in here. (9) LATE NIGHT TERROR failed to fire in last but if he escapes the post there is enough life in him to earn a share.

Race 3

(9) ABBEYCREST should be along in time with a late rally if she gets any kind of decent trip. (7) BUILDING WEALTH was weathered out last week but prior was second best effort. (2) JEN ROCKS will give it all she has from post two.

Race 4

(9) LEE A BRYANT sucked along pretty good from same post in last facing slightly better. Same trip and any kind of improvement can get him home. (6) FOREVER HAPPY finished well in last, faces slightly weaker and with the right trip he can upset. (7) HERE COMES WHITEY finished with strong rally from a game second in latest and can be tough if he gets a trip but the post hurts.

Race 5

(3) STAR MASTER FOX has no excuse if he fails in here. (1) RACE ME ROCKY should be the lone threat from the rail. (7) BACARDI PUNCH was wiped out in last and bothered in race before that. Tough-luck youngster has not shown much but he is due for some racing luck.

Race 6

(1) ALLAMERICAN DORA draws the rail and that is a major change. (5) SHAKINMYMONIMAKER closed well two back and was burdened by the second tier, snow and a speedy winner in last. (4) GILLA DREAM moves to the middle of the pack. Has yet to win this year but has finished with pace in most of last races.

Race 7

(4) BROULE HANOVER was used twice in last and suffered the consequences. Should be tighter this evening. Two back was a brave second with a horrible trip. (3) SOUTHWIND MAIZE broke in last. Won prior with strong rally. (1) A J CRESS has the pole and veteran will be close as far as he goes.

Race 8

(6) LUCKEY REI seeks third straight and faces same kind. (5) FLIRTIN closed stoutly to win two back. Toured the track in last. Ships in primed for best. (3) SONICPEDIA has broke two of last three and needs to overcome the new habit.

Race 9

(1) PICK YOUR POISON looks to get it done from the pole shipping in after facing much better last few outings. (3) GO HERBIE GO has two wins last three and has the late speed to be a threat if top one is not up to the challenge. (4) ULTIMATE WINNER has been earning money with all out hooves in recent and earns a long look.

Race 10

(1) MAJOR AT HEART won last from the rail. Faces better but best can get it done. (5) MYSTICAL BROTHERS won last from the pocket and has been battling last three outings. (7) FREDSABULLDOG is always in the hunt.

Race 11

(6) OIL SLICKER stepped up for last and enjoyed the exercise. Drops back down with winning on his mind. (2) HOOREI FOR FLASH sucked along from the rail with a pocket trip and finished second in last. (1) DONTBEACHATME shipped in for last and rallied along the rail too late to get it done. Do not ignore in well matched field.

Race 12

(2) DARLING ANGEL has little to beat and little in the way of an excuse to offer if she doesn't. (5) CAMPSIDE ANGEL has done nothing recently to warrant this kind of look but has more wins this year than the rest of the field combined and that needs to be noted. (9) PEPSTEPN PENELOPE has never had the winning habit but does possess the picking up a check habit and should clear early traffic.

Race 13

(6) DR JACKS SHACK has flashed some modest late speed in most recent and can pull it off with the right trip. (1) JALAPENO has been close in all recent but failed to spice it up when needed. (2) MUSIC AGAIN won last and has to be considered.

Race 14

(4) AINTNOFOOLSGOLD shipped in for last and toured the track. Faces slightly weaker and should fire his best shot this evening. (1) KING RICHARD has the pole but needs to show more of the heart of the lion if he hopes to score. (3) LARRY CLARK will do his best and may land a share.

Race 15

(9) EARLYMORNINARRIVAL has to overcome the second tier but his last was huge closing effort that ran out of track. (6) EXPRESSO FORTE has been close battling in most recent and can cause some late closing concern if the choice fails to fire. (2) AMERICAN PILOT crashed and burned in latest trying the front end. Prior was no luck parked the mile effort. He has what it takes but putting it together may need a little work.
