Email

Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: WAASMULA (8th)

Spot Play: OAKLEA VICTOR (5th)

Race 1

(8) AMIGO DE GRANDE has been racing very well in this class and despite the outside post looks like the horse to beat. (7) NORTHERN VICTORY was won two straight, has excellent gate speed and has been the picture of consistency recently. (3) GUNGA WIN enters the Hummel barn and has hit the board in five of his last six.

Race 2

(10) JENNA CASIMIR has won three straight in this class before finishing second last week. I'll try her again even with a post 10 start. (4) BEE FULLOF STEINAM gets my pick only based on the trainer change to Auciello. (9) LITTLE BROWN MUG won in the debut of trainer Moreau two starts ago then put in a disappointing seventh last start. She's versatile and drops in class.

Race 3

(6) CHEVOUS COLE has the speed and won at this level in recent starts. He's very capable and may offer a fair price. (2) ORDER BY COMMANDER draws inside, is fresh off a win and gets Jamieson back in the bike. (4) FLIGHT OF THE KIWI likely will offer a price and has been trotting very credible miles for this class. He's versatile and draws inside.

Race 4

(9) JDS CALEB MAN has won two straight and remains in the same class. He comes out of Nixon's barn and was a high percentage winner last season. (3) BARE NECESSITY draws inside, comes out of the Johnson barn. He won in this class two starts ago. (2) JUDGE JON moves back onto this circuit and gets Jamieson in the bike. He draws well, has a good record last season and should offer a price.

Race 5

(1) OAKLEA VICTOR debuted in the Moreau barn last week and failed to win. He gets the rail this week and I'll try him this week. (4) MIYAGI HANOVER finished second last week and raced very well last season. He comes out of Henriksen's barn and that can't be overlooked. (6) ITS PAYDAY FRIDAY made a miscue in his latest, but recovered well. He's versatile and a good option for the triactor in this field.

Race 6

(7) EAT ME UP drops in class and that's the main reason for my selection. She certainly has the speed and gets Filion returning to the bike. (8) ST LADS PEEPER comes out of the Wallace barn, also drops in class and is a top candidate for this class. (6) WARRAWEE LIMELIGHT has been knocking on the door in her latest few outings and comes out of the Fellows barn. She's proven to be a good option for the triactor while at this level.

Race 7

(2) BAD NIGHT MARE will likely get a lot of attention in this class. She draws inside, gets Jamieson in the bike and will likely offer a low price. (9) TWIN B INSPIRING hasn't been worse than second in three of her last four starts. She will have to overcome post nine and will likely race from behind. (3) MISS POPPYCOCK draws well and comes out of the Niagara Series. This class of horses should be easier than what she's been facing.

Race 8

(6) WAASMULA is fresh off a win and remains at the same level. Waples is in the bike and will offer a low price. (8) ADDISON BAY comes out of the Menary barn, has a good record in 2013 and is very versatile. (10) RUB N TUG draws outside, but has been racing very well in recent starts. She has excellent gate speed and may offer a fair price with her post 10 start.

Race 9

(4) CALL IT COURAGE won at this level last week and draws well once again. She's been very consistent in recent weeks and hopefully that continues. (2) D GS PESQUERO draws inside and has been knocking on the door in recent starts. She comes out of Moreau's barn and will get a lot of attention. (10) HANDS OFF HANOVER has been assigned post 10, but gets MacDonald in the bike and will likely use her gate speed. If she can be well-positioned early then I like her chances for top three.

Race 10

(4) LIVE TO DREAM won at this level last start and remains at the same level. She draws well once again with Saftic bike in the bike. (10) MEMUMSNOTNICE comes out of the Johnson barn and has hit the board in five of her last six starts. She has excellent gate-speed and will likely be put into play early by Waples. (5) ADAYMER SEELSTER is versatile and will likely offer a price. She has the speed and will need the correct trip.

Race 11

(7) NOTHINGBUTMACH has finished first and second in this class in the past two weeks. He comes out of the Montini barn and will offer a low price. (5) TIME TO ROCKNROLL has won three straight and moves onto this circuit. He moves up in class, but proves he's worthy. (4) FRESH HERB has raced in this class in the past and is carrying a two-race win streak with him. He's back on this circuit, is up in class and draws well.
