Woodbine Harness: Friday 10/17 analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: JK SHESALADY (1st)



Race 1

(3) JK SHESALADY is a perfect eight-for-eight this season and is clearly the filly to beat. (1) HAPPY BECKY draws well and has remained undefeated this season with Christoforou in the bike. (6) STORM POINT comes from the Burke barn, gets Pierce and perhaps is blooming late in the season.

Race 2

(1) JOLENE JOLENE is fresh off a dominant win at The Red Mile and is carrying that momentum into this elimination. (4) JUANITAS FURY comes from the Bax barn and has stashed away over $247K this season. She's been consistent this season and is a major player. (2) FLIRTING FILLY draws inside, comes from the Takter barn and is fresh off a stakes win.

Race 3

(4) MISSION BRIEF won her latest in a World Record time and is the top rookie trotting filly this season. (2) STUBBORN BELLE laid out tough fractions in her latest, but remains a top candidate for the exactor in here with her form and record this season. (3) DANIELLE HALL has been very consistent this season, comes from the Jamieson barn and was a winner in her most recent.

Race 4

(8) SEASIDE RORY gets post relief and major drop in class for trainer Gillis. This mare is a better mare than she's been showing. (1) MISS COCO LUCK draws the rail and has been at her best in her last few starts. (7) WILDCAT HANNA was a winner last week and moves slightly up in class. She's a good option for the triactor.

Race 5

(9) EXQUISITE GLIDE made a miscue last week and will look to rebound. He has the speed, comes from the Alagna barn and won two of his last three. (6) LONG ISLAND TEA has finished second in back-to-back starts for Jones and remains in this class. (3) NORTHERN BULLET is fresh off a win at this level for Moreau and can't be overlooked.

Race 6

(4) BAND OF ANGELS has won six of eight career starts and recently qualified impressively for Burke and Gingras. (1) THE SHOW RETURNS draws the rail, comes from the Ryder barn and is carrying a lot of momentum into this contest. She has the speed, connections and breeding in her favour. (3) WICKED LITTLE MINX raced tremendous last week for Svanstedt and draws well in this short field. She continues to get better and better as the season progresses.

Race 7

(3) MACHNBYRD PRINCESS finally draws inside this week and should receive a much cleaner trip. She could be sitting on a big mile with her speed and better post. (2) HUSTLEONHOME draws inside and has hit the board in two of her last three starts. (1) SHADYS M THREE gets the rail this week and was a beaten favourite last week in this class.

Race 8

(2) POCKET TRIP draws inside, comes from the Goodwin barn and was a winner at this level three back. (3) RAMZAM draws inside and went gate-to-wire last week at this level. (8) WINDSUN REVENGE has been knocking on the door as of late and offers a lot of versatility. Zeron will be back aboard and the gelding has some upside for the triactor.

Race 9

(7) ANTAR PHIL comes from the Steacy barn and recently paced in 1:54 3/5. He has the speed and is due for his first career win. (9) NOBETTERPLACETOBE raced in the NYSS program this season and will now make his Woodbine debut. He shows the speed, but will need to overcome the outside. (6) MARACASSO comes from the Williamson barn and finished off his mile very strong last week.

Race 10

(8) BRITISH STEEL was very impressive in last week’s victory and can't be overlooked even at this higher level. (7) CABERTOSS has back-to-back scores at Rideau Carleton, is versatile and gets McNair in the bike. (10) FASHION GODDESS has been much better since arriving in the Baillargeon barn and may offer a nice price from the outside.

Race 11

(7) FOOLISH MIND just missed last week in this class and has been at her best in recent weeks. (9) SOMEWHEREINHEAVEN went gate-to-wire last week for Remmen and kicked home very strong. (8) BRUSHSTROKES gets Jamieson again this week, which will influence the price.

Race 12

(10) J HIGH faces an easier group this week, gets a new pilot and may offer a nice price from post 10. (6) WINDSUN KENDRA just missed last week with a :27 final frame and comes from the Puddy barn. (1) CORONA WITH LIME gets Jamieson aboard from the rail and comes from a very high percentage trainer.

Race 13

(6) BET YA has been at her best in recent weeks and was a winner last week in this class. (3) NOBLE JILLY draws inside and has finished second in three of her last four starts. (1) MURRAYFIELD gets the rail and has been the picture of consistency as of late. She's a threat from the rail.
