Northfield: Wednesday 6/25 Analysis


Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: ST ELIANS FIRE (1st)

Spot Play: EAGLE JEAN (6th)


Race 1

(1) ST ELIANS FIRE closed gamely in last to nail it near the wire and draws the rail again. (2) NEELYS BOY was equally impressive winning in last week's action of the Iron Maiden and looms as a strong next choice. (3) TIME TRAVEL needs a little more to argue with the top two but looms as best of the rest from the inside post.

Race 2

(1) QUICK KIL is a now or never kind of pick from the rail. Qualifier was a decent second, first time out was a parked-the-mile effort and his last was a tour of the track from post seven once again parked the mile. From the pole he should be right in the mix facing a weak field. (3) FIRMS RANDSOME flashed some improvement when facing this kind in last and can land it all with the right trip. (6) WINGULL races second off the qualifier and facing this kind he can have a say in the final outcome.

Race 3

(9) SMALLSREED was too huge in last to ignore despite the post. There is speed inside and this oldtimer need only clear modest early traffic to humble another field. (2) CJS VICTORY went down the road in last only to get nailed on the wire. (4) SCREEN SAVER was a game on-the-wire winner in last but moves out a bit facing slightly tougher bunch.

Race 4

(1) SONICPEDIA ships in from Canada and won from the rail two back. (3) SOUTHERN CARE was an impressive second best in last coming the long uncovered journey. (6) CODYTHECLOWN weakened with victory in sight last time.

Race 5

(1) MORGANS MAJESTIC has made costly breaks in two of last three but the time he stayed flat he won easily. (8) AMIGO RAPIDO suffered a broken hopple in last and could be upsetter if things go his way. (9) ALADY FOR SURE flashed some strong late foot in last effort.

Race 6

(4) EAGLE JEAN gets the nod to soar by these in the lane. (2) ROSE RUN KERMIT was outkicked in last facing this kind but two back was a blowout win versus weaker. (1) JACKIE NO has the pole and speed enough to get on the engine.

Race 7

(5) FREDSABULLDOG almost made it home in last and adds a little bit more `bulldog' to get it done tonight. (7) MR CADILLAC has been away a year but two qualifiers were interesting enough to indicate he may be ready at first asking. (6) CATALINA KID suffered from post position blues in last or so it seemed.

Race 8

(2) CHROME SEELSTER bested his main competition in here last time and gets nod to take another. (4) J F COOKIN was second best to the top one last time around. (6) CINNAMON ROLLS has been banging heads with this kind and is always trying.

Race 9

(5) WHAT DO YOU WANT was claimed again in last and his best effort should take this well matched field. (4) MOMS LOOKER roared down the road in last but that was from the rail. (3) GIULIO qualified like he meant it but he has shown a severe propensity for going off stride in too many recent races to pick on top.

Race 10

(1) PLAYITAGANSTAN drops back to the level he does damage and draws the rail. (3) SJS PATRIOT ships back from The Meadows and will be hard to beat on best. (4) WOW POWER was bothered in last and got the win by default. Prior was huge win facing weaker but he should be around at the end.

Race 11

(3) MR GREEN has a couple of wins last three outs and looms as tough to beat once again. (4) JP ORAZIO has been bombastic and well bet in all recent races winning three of the last four but he had the rail last three outs and moves out. (1) SUNBURNED VERN should suck along and gain minor spoils as top two duel for top honors.

Race 12

(1) KELSEYS STAR won from the `garden' in last and should do the same again. (4) BABYS CHUMP CHANGE has won from the `garden' last two and can hardly be ignored. (2) HOLLYS SECRET will do the pacesetting and try to hold off the `garden' pests.

Race 13

(3) RULING V C N faces weaker and gets the call on that alone despite being winless this year. (7) DOOWRAH OMELET steps up and moves out but has speed enough to be near the pace. (4) KING RICHARD had the heart of a lion and his namesake will need one also if he hopes to outfinish the competition.

Race 14

(3) PASSIONATEPRINCESS faces modest drop in fourth race off the qualifier and should show improvement tonight. (6) DEPUTY DYLAN was wide and closed well in last and seems to be ready for big effort after showing some early speed in two prior races. (5) FORTUNE KING has been battling it out in most recent and will make his presence felt in the lane.

Race 15

(4) ARTS BOY wired the field in first off the winning qualifier and gets the nod to take another. (7) SPARE TIME GINO faces weaker and has some late speed on best so do not ignore. (5) ELUSIVE RAINBOW put in two qualifiers showing speed but no lasting power. Should need a race or two as he returns from a year layoff.
