Email

Race 4 - $75,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: LIFETIME JEWEL (8th)

Spot Play: WARRAWEE LIMELIGHT (4th)

Race 1

(3) FRISKY MAGIC has won three straight, comes out of Henriksen's barn and won in this class last week. (2) LETS LEAVEM draws inside and has been knocking on the door in his last three starts. He's been a lot better in the latter part of the year. (9) POPEDA moves into the Moreau barn and that's the main reason for my selection.

Race 2

(3) DAPPER DENZIL draws inside and debuts for trainer Shepherd. He's at the same class as last week and has won three of his last four. (6) DUKE DID IT won last week in a new lifetime best. He's in a short field and is a good option for this class. (5) GENESEE was dropped into a claimer last week and raced very well despite making a break. He's hit the board in four of his last five outings.

Race 3

(8) NORTHERN VICTORY won in this class last week and closed very well to capture the victory. He draws outside and will likely offer a low price. (9) MOPEY COREY has the speed, is versatile and has been knocking on the door in his last three starts. (2) ROLANDS SEEHORSE qualified well and is classified accordingly. If he minds his manners, he's a threat for the triactor ticket.

Race 4

(1) WARRAWEE LIMELIGHT gets the rail and drops in class. She's a quality mare and should benefit on the class drop. (7) SMASHBOX also drops in class. She comes out of the Gillis barn and gets Jamieson in the bike. (6) ON THE CUSP raced much better last start. She closed well and should benefit on the post relief.

Race 5

(7) OZZY OZZY has won two straight and moves up in class. He has the speed, shows versatility and should handle the class jump. (2) WEST SIDE STORY finished second in each of his last two starts. He draws inside and gets Zeron in the bike. (5) POUNCE HANOVER has the speed, but is trip-dependant. If Zeron can put him in a good position early, he has a good closing kick and should provide a high price.

Race 6

(9) SAND GESTURE moves into the Moreau barn and finished second in her seasonal debut last week. She adds lasix and likely will offer a low price with her back class. (5) THATLL BE FRANNY draws well and drops in class. She'll likely get an aggressive steer from Steward. (2) ROBIN CRUISER comes out of the Pinske barn, drops in class and draws much better. She's a better horse than she's been showing.

Race 7

(5) GREYSTONE LADYLIKE has a good record this season and is overdue for a win. She raced well last start and faces an easier group. (6) CONTINUAL VELOCITY has the speed, comes from a top barn and has a lot of back class. (7) TEA PARTY PRINCESS is fresh off a win were she did most of the work on the front end. Even with the class jump, she's a top threat.

Race 8

(5) LIFETIME JEWEL draws well and has been racing very consistently in her last number of starts. She won in this class just two starts ago. (3) MACHNBYRD PRINCESS hasn't been worse than second in each of her last three starts. She draws inside and is very fresh. (1) RACHEL WELCH gets the rail and won in this class last start. She comes out of Darling's barn and has gate speed.

Race 9

(2) SAMIRA HANOVER draws inside and made an uncharacteristic miscue last start. She has terrific gate-speed and likely will be your leader turning for home. (5) LINDYS CREDITLINE has the speed and has posted strong final quarters. He finished second in this class last start and once again is a top rival. (1) WATCH THE RHYTHM draws the rail and comes out of Alagna's barn. He gets Zeron in the bike and will likely need a trip.

Race 10

(4) BEST IMPRESSIONS has a terrific record this season and is a top candidate for this class. She comes out of Wallace's barn and faces an easier group. (7) JAN IT JACKSON is fresh off a win and is very versatile. She gets McNair back in the bike and will likely offer a low price. (3) MARLEE B draws well and has been racing very well in her last three starts. She's a good option for the triactor.

Race 11

(5) STONEBRIDGE ADORE is lightly raced this season and has a high win percentage. She comes out of McNair's barn and will likely be the favourite. (4) EMBASSY SEELSTER comes from a high percentage trainer and has the speed required for this class. She's versatile and likely will be near the front. (1) RAISE YOUR GLASS gets the rail and has finished first and third in her last two starts - both from outside starting spots. Post relief should certainly help her in this field.

Race 12

(9) DIDRICKSON draws outside, but has gate-speed and is a top threat in this field. She's been racing well and is likely won't offer a price. (7) ADAYMER SEELSTER got a terrific trip last start en route to victory. She's been racing well all season and shouldn't mind the class jump. (3) JENNA CASIMIR finished second last week and closed very well. She comes from a top barn and gets Waples back in the bike.
