Northfield: Wednesday 12/3 Analysis



Spot Play: SHEER SPORT (2nd)

Race 1

(6) ST ELIANS FIRE won for fun in last and can hardly be looked past this evening. (5) NITEROI OAKS seeks fourth straight and streaks like this need to be respected. (4) PRAKASMAKESPERFECT has wired the field convincingly last two and can take another on best.

Race 2

(5) SHEER SPORT was hindered by the post two back, showed late life in last. (4) ADDYS SECRET showed some closing speed in last and best puts her in the middle of the stretch scrum. (3) FIDGETING HANOVER drops down. Seldom wins but has hit the board often enough to get a look.

Race 3

(3) VICTORINTHEVALLEY ships back and won versus similar two back after a slew of second place finishes. (4) HIGH HEAR WINNER has shown some late speed in most recent races. (5) GO HERBIE GO looked like he could get it done last out but flattened a bit. Looms as a late threat in well-matched field.

Race 4

(1) ITS SPIDER was parked early, tucked, rallied late. Has the rail and no excuses. (3) QUICK KIL was parked from the outside post in last and expired early. Beaten favorite two back could be tough if right. (7) ITSNOONERTIME has some early speed and could be tough if he gets the lead.

Race 5

(6) MUCKMUCK WOODCHUCK was parked for life in last. Prior was huge move to the lead only to tire.  Gotta get one more chance in here. (2) SECURITY BREACH had cover and no kick in latest. Beaten lukewarm favorite could be the right one if all goes his way. (1) CANDY J has been overwhelmed by `nines`  in most recent races. From the pole, she should have the trip she wants.

Race 6

(1) HERSMAN drops, draws the rail and gets a vote with heads-up drive. (5) ARTISTIC DREAMER gets call to be the main threat, especially with Wrenn. (4) A J CRESS was outkicked with victory a possibility in last. Moves out from the rail in that effort but should give it his all.

Race 7

(4) MISTYS DIGNITY was parked in last, made a brave move to rally close but tired. Same move, better timing can equal victory. (5) ELM GROVE JOKER has a good qualifier under his belt. Lightly raced last two years, if he has anything he will show it first out of the box. (7) EXPRESSO FORTE came up flat last time. Prior were decent efforts. Gets a long look, especially on the board.

Race 8

(9) UF FAST FEELIN has been good last two with most recent being a down the road victory. Will have speed in front of him and get involved throughout. (1) HUNT N SAVE has speed and the rail. (3) BANANA SHOOTER scored impressively in last. Ships in and will be tough to best with similar effort.

Race 9

(4) ON YOU BRIT when last on the track he was a well bet tripped-out second place finisher. (2) BROADWAY BOUND was second over and showed marked improvement in last. Needs more late kick for best. (3) HELLO CARLO beaten favorite made a costly break in last. Can staying flat equal vindication? Time will tell.

Race 10

(5) HOOREI FOR FLASH made it home in last with game down the road effort and gets the nod in well-matched race with numerous able players. (6) DERINGER GUN seeks third straight and has to be respected. (3) CHIPS GALORE closed well in last and could be the one if top two battle.

Race 11

(3) TIDBIT gets the nod to pull off the upset. (4) OUTAMYSPACE fits well versus these and will be hard to best. (5) DABUNKA has been nailed last two with victory a possibility. Still, he is sharp enough to be a force as far as he goes.

Race 12

(5) JAY JAY REDSKY can close on field that begs to be beat. (6) ABBEYCREST has been close last few and is one to fear. (7) BUILDING WEALTH veteran's career is winding down. He has shown some late speed but best of rest seems his fate.

Race 13

(4) CATCH THAT ANGEL was parked uncovered a long way in game effort last time and earns some respect off that try. (7) LIGHTNINGINTHESKY doesn't seem to mind any post and has late speed. Cannot be ignored. (8) GALLOWS POLE scorched the track in last closing with big wide move and earns a long look once more.

Race 14

(9) SHAKINMYMONIMAKER has little to beat in here and should find a way into contention despite the second tier. (4) PEPSTEPN PENELOPE had a win in her sights in last but faltered. (2) SOUTHERN CARE almost won from post two a couple of races back.

Race 15

(5) FOREVER HAPPY rallied late in last and that should be enough to make him a serious threat in here. (1) SKEDADDLE HANOVER ships in, draws the rail and may have one serious race in him for Rocco before retirement beckons. (2) CAPTAIN CASEY was scratched sick in last. He was a beaten favorite in prior race.
