Northfield: Wednesday 5/14 Analysis


Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: KING ME (7th)

Spot Play: VACATION ANGEL (10th)


Race 1

(1) MISS EVA CASH made the big move in last, loomed in the late stages but faltered. Should be tighter this evening and if she stays flat that should be that. (5) SMALLSREED made a strong down the road attempt in last but ran out of gas nearing the wire. Should contend but moves out from the rail. (6) SAMMY MERLOT has the speed to take these on best but has to stay flat.

Race 2

(3) SUPER LUSTRE whipped the field in last to break long losing streak and needs best to take another. (6) LINDAS DIAMOND LIL is another rough gaited trotter that needs to stay the course for best results. (7) MASTERS TRACKSTER has to overcome the post but if he avoids breakers, he might just do that.

Race 3

(7) ACTION EAR TO EAR seeks fourth straight and that includes two wire to wires from the outside posts. (3) ROSE RUN PANCHO has had a series of qualifiers and in last finally managed to stay on stride. (2) MORGANS MAJESTIC put in a decent qualifier and showed last year he can win if flat.

Race 4

(7) CODYTHECLOWN has won four of last five and has been bet heavy in all so obviously one has to watch the board. (2) GYPSY LADY seems versatile enough to contend with these with any kind of trip. One would think she should have more wins but being close finishes the exotics. (5) FIDGETING HANOVER has faced better in recent.

Race 5

(8) GALE FORCE HANOVER has two straight wins after taking his qualifier three back. The post has been conquered before by our hero. (2) ANNIES ROCKETMAN faltered on the wire in last but prior two were front-stepping wins. (1) BELLASTWILIGHTSTAR has the pole and has the speed to be close throughout.

Race 6

(7) NIGHT CALL took a few months off and may come out winging. (6) AUTO PILOT faltered on the front end in last but faces little enough to stay to the wire if not pushed. (1) YARROWS CRUISER has not won in a long, long time but qualified decently enough to indicate he can be around at the wire.

Race 7

(2) KING ME looks to be a now-or-never proposition as he seeks to break the 0 for 2014 slump. (4) KENNAIRN LIFE SIGN has the speed but may lack the stamina. (5) GO SMARTY BRAND has a lot of 1's on his card--but not in the win column so he may be the one to catch.

Race 8

(1) CREDIT REPORT moves in to the rail and gets the nod in close fit. (3) LADYS DUDE just missed from the pocket in last and should be tighter this time. (4) ANNIESBLUEJEANBABY was second best twice before a qualifier win and gets long look in well-matched field.

Race 9

(1) INGLORIOUS MUSTARD has wired the field two back and brushed and crushed in last. Pick your poison. (2) KJS JAKEE steps up a bit but cannot be overlooked. (7) CALL  HIM CLINT has proven he has it all in recent and has to be give long look in another well matched field.

Race 10

(7) VACATION ANGEL is much too sharp to look past. (1) TABULATOR has the pole and good speed but had to qualify in last to get a flat line on his card. (3) MARTINAS QUEEN moves in off last and earns long look.

Race 11

(3) A MAJOR HAZE has been king of his qualifiers winning two straight. Tries first real competition of the year. (4) JOJO IN THE SKY would have been top choice but is being reined by 4th different driver in last five outings and that has to be a warning sign. (2) COWBOY TOUGH last two were quality starts and he faces much the same type.

Race 12

(6) ROCKIN HA CHEERY O has been tightened enough to have no excuse in here. (2) MACAO put in a good qualifier and will be looming near the wire. (4) MOMA JEANS CROWN seldom wins but can be close on best.

Race 13

(3) CYCLONE ASHORE won for fun with big finish in qualifier and has to be give a solid chance in here. (4) TIELER BEA HOTSPUR improved in last and can be in the photo on best. (8) CANT SLAY ME has been attacked by secondonitis in 2014 and is looking for the cure.

Race 14

(2) WHAT DO YOU WANT seeks third straight and is the one to beat. (1) ALLAMERICAN CHEER has the pole and no excuses to offer. (5) NEELY SPRINT is sharp enough to get the job done on best effort.

Race 15

(2) GORDIEISANARTIST has good position to argue from and earns nervous nod after two losing favorite outings. (4) BIG HARRY DEAL faces slightly weaker but has won few the last two seasons. (6) LARRY CLARK has been knocking on door.
