Northfield: Wednesday 7/16 Analysis


Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: BOILER BREES (8th)



Race 1

(5) TIMER just missed in last and the twice beaten favorite gets one more chance to gain the nod. (2) LINUS BE WORTHY has enough speed to argue the early pace but has not shown the stamina to stay the course in last year or two. (9) DODGEME DISPISEME has to clear early traffic but seems to be rounding into a winning effort so do not ignore.

Race 2

(8) OIL SLICKER made a huge rally in last to set a new life mark. (3) HIT BY LIGHTNING has been second best last four and looms as the second half of the exacta once again. (7) CODYTHECLOWN has been right there in most recent races and cannot be ignored.

Race 3

(2) NORMAS ROSE fit much better this level when in against similar in last and has a decent post. (5) IKNOWWHATBOYSLIKE won last despite a break but moves up a bit. (1) PASSIONATEPRINCESS should be close at the end from the rail but did break in last.

Race 4

(9) LOCK THREE won last and need only get around or through early traffic to be the one to fear in the lane. (2) SONICPEDIA has speed and should be on the lead to the late stages. (4) QUICK KIL has been nailed last two after setting the pace but faces a challenge for the lead this evening.

Race 5

(7) SMALLSREED was second best in last but two prior were monster wins. (2) DREAM KID closed down on the speed in last and loom as strong threat once more. (5) BUILDING WEALTH has been giving it his best in recent and won last from the pocket.

Race 6

(3) ARTISTIC DREAMER was parked from outside post in last and never got close, prior was late closing bid. He drops in class and moves in and should be tough to deny. (1) FRANCO NATURA N gets the rail which is a welcome release from last two posts. (9) CATCH THAT ANGEL faces modest well-matched group and could be tough if he gets to the lead.

Race 7

(2) ACTION EAR TO EAR has speed and knows how to win. (3) ROYAL CAT closed gamely in last but came up a nose short. (4) BLUES INTHEKEYOFC was burdened by the post and a break in last.  closed with trot at 44-1 and might surprise on best.

Race 8

(1) BOILER BREES looks like a now-or-never shot at first glance from the rail off last few outings. (5) JP ORAZIO has gone well at Northfield in all his recent effors over the track and is the main threat. (6) SINGIN BLUES has speed and should be on the lead heading home.

Race 9

(9) HEZATRAIN has finished full of trot last fwe and was a just-missed beaten favorite in last. (8) TWILIGHT METEOR was an impressive winner in last but the post hurts. (5) LETS UST DANCE came wide into the stretch, took a short lead but flattened out in most recent outing.

Race 10

(1) OUR CROWN LAW N was parked all night in last and faded in the lane. Beaten favorite has the rail and no excuse. (6) WATTAFINE RUSTY closed strongly, held well and won last impressively. (7) ALLAMERICAN LASER has closed well in last few including big win a few back and should be coming home through the lane.

Race 11

(3) NORDIC VENTURE was odds-on to win last and did. Faces pretty much the same and looms as the one to beat. (6) ROCKIN H CHEERY O can rough it on the front or rally from the back. Off the pace might be his best shot tonight. (2) BEAUTY CHIP has flashed late speed in last two winning most recent.

Race 12

(2) OUTAMYSPACE closed strongly to win going away against this kind and gets the call to repeat. (3) J F COOKIN has flashed some good late speed last three and is the one to fear. (9) FREEFALL won four back, did poorly three back, won two back, did poorly in last and such inconsistency must be noted becasue he can win this  using the same logic despite last disaster.

Race 13

(4) LITTLE AMOS drops down looking for a payday and his best makes him a strong possibility. (1) REDICATION has not seen the rail in a while and breaks a long string of outside posts. (7) PANDAPOCKET has won from this post two back but failed in last. Splitting the difference makes him a possibility in well matched field.

Race 14

(5) TIDBIT has little to beat and should be tough to deny in here. (7) MACH TO THE LIMIT drops to a more competitive level and earns long look. (9) R MASTER SCOTT faces weak bunch and may have a surprise in store for the unaware.

Race 15

(2) BASILIO BLUE CHIP seeks third straight and has been well bet in all of recent. Looks pretty simple at first glance. (1) CANT SLAY ME was parked forever in last, has speed, moves in and is the main threat. (4) COSMOS can find a hole and suck along for minor spoils.
