Northfield: Wednesday 7/23 Analysis


Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: HEZATRAIN (3rd)

Spot Play: WORRIES STAY SMALL (15th)


Race 1

(7) SEPTEMBER HALL shipped and was roughed up getting parked the mile. Should get luckier this evening. (3) SMALLSREED has been good last few and faces much the same in here. (5) DEPUTY DYLAN drops to a more suitable level and will be a threat.

Race 2

(6) MODERN WARFARE has been facing better out of town and ships in looking to score first win of the year. (5) OH WHATA GUY can get it done with the right trip. (4) PLAYERS BALL faces weaker seeking the elusive first score on the year after winning his share in '13.

Race 3

(2) HEZATRAIN has been sharp all recent with late closing efforts. (1) PASSIONATEPRINCESS has the rail and sucks along to the end. If the top one falters she can get it done. (4) HIGH GEAR WINNER has gone steadily in most recent and could get lucky on best effort.

Race 4

(1) LITTLE AMOS is a beaten favorite, draws the rail and has no excuse. (2) SHOCKBYELECTRIC won last on the front end and should be on the engine again. (7) EX DREAM has to overcome the post but showed some modest late foot two back.

Race 5

(1) SPECIAL PURPOSE set a new life mark in last and looms as hard to beat once more. (7) THE RAINCATCHER has to overcome the post, a breaking habit and hope it doesn't rain but faces weaker and will be tough if she makes the front end. (2) HEZA RUBE has dropped like a rock but sooner or later will find the right field.

Race 6

(1) DVC EASY DOES IT was parked before finding a seat in last leaving from the outside but put in a much improved effort. Vet draws the rail and should save enough ground to be the late closing winner. (5) DO IT DOCS WAY takes a modest drop in company and may be able to build on last week's out of town effort. (9) COWBOY ROUNDUP was parked from the two-hole last, challenged to the half and expired. An improved effort can be expected facing these campaigners.

Race 7

(7) KATIE AND J has been battling in all of recent and her best gets her home in time in well matched field. (5) SHOOTFORTHESTARZZZ roared home in last to upset at nearly 50-1 so has to be mentioned as the main threat. (4) CODYTHECLOWN has been all over the racetrack in last few and can be a late threat with right trip.

Race 8

(5) ROUNDING THIRD and heading home with the winning run is what you can hope for as this one drops to a more suitable level. (2) OUTAMYSPACE has some good late speed and has used it well last two. (6) PROMISED THE MOON and delivered in last with short priced wire-to-wire romp but moves out and faces somewhat better.

Race 9

(6) ROCKIN H CHEERY O has been right there in all recent and has enough late speed to get it done. (4) MYSTERY RINGER has hit the board in over half his races last two years and his best could put him right in the picture. (9) VIEWLANDER need only get away clean and clear to put himself in position to be a threat.

Race 10

(1) BASILIO BLUE CHIP has the rail and a three race win streak. (2) MAJOR SPEED can stalk the speed to the lane and get lucky in the late scrum. (4) ROYAL CAM HALL was a well bet winner in last and just missed at odds-on three back.

Race 11

(1) SONICPEDIA has speed and the rail and will go as far as he can which looks like the winner's circle. (5) HAGITHA was game a game winner in last and a game third two back. Game could pay off tonight. (7) J F COOKIN has flashed good late speed in most recent and should be a serious threat in the lane.

Race 12

(5) HEARTACHES BLUES has been second best last two with front end tries. There seems to be little to no early speed inside of him so he could go that route again. (1) FEATURE MATCHUP was a late closing winner in last as the favorite. Faces slightly better but seems capable of putting a scare into the top one through the lane. (7) BILLY THE COLT was wide passing the third panel in qualifier and second best.

Race 13

(3) SINGIN BLUES fits well this level and has won two of last three. (2) ROMAN ROCKS has been tough in both outings off the qualifier winning last with uncovered effort. (5) BOILER BREEZE will be a late threat if he finds a seat on the rail.

Race 14

(3) RUFF STUFF JACKSON finished well in last and same effort makes him the one to beat. (5) VANISCAPE has flashed some late foot in last two and would be no surprise. (1) CANT SLAY ME has speed and the rail and should go well.

Race 15

(2) WORRIES STAY SMALL toured the track in last at 58-1 but finished with pace. (4) IM JUST CRUISIN got away well from post nine in latest and sat in with steady finish. Prior was a lame scratch so this one might be ready to step it up a notch after showing he can go the distance in last. (5) JP ORAZIO has done good work recently with Merriman in the bike and gets him back to face this well matched field.
