Email

Race 4 - $75,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: SAMIRA HANOVER (2nd)

Spot Play: BRUSHSTROKES (11th)

Race 1

(6) JENNA CASIMIR drops in class and draws much better compared to last week. She won at a higher level just four starts ago. (7) GRACIE MONTANA has a patented closing kick and put in a sub-par effort last start. If she's close to the pace, she's a top candidate at this level. (2) MEMUMSNOTNICE draws inside, has a good record this season and comes out of the Johnson barn.

Race 2

(7) SAMIRA HANOVER has won both preliminary legs and is the horse to beat in this final. (6) OCEAN MIST BEAUTY has been racing at her best in recent starts and was a winner last week. She gets Jamieson in the bike for the final and will offer a low price. (2) I LIKE MY KADDY draws inside and has been knocking on the door. Waples picks up a live catch drive, which makes me like this horse even more.

Race 3

(4) DOCTOR LILY was a convincing winner at Yonkers last start and has a good record this season. She's won three of her last four starts. (9) P L GNAW has hit the board in each of his last three starts and continues to drop time. Hopefully he doesn't get away too far back. (2) CHIEVOUS COLE draws inside and has been racing very well in his last two starts. He's been trotting credible miles and remains at the same level.

Race 4

(4) DANE made a miscue last start, but has been racing at his best in the three starts prior. Waples is on board this week, which makes me like his chances even more. (8) PAZZO LINDY made a miscue last start, but has been racing terrific prior to that. He comes out of Baillargeon's barn, who is terrific with young trotters. (6) WILL TO DO was the favourite in each of his last two starts at this level. He's a good option for the triactor.

Race 5

(7) DOUBLEDOWN GASS has won three of his last four and looks like the horse to beat in this final. He has terrific gate-speed and will likely be put into play early. (3) LETS LEAVEM draws inside and hasn't been worse than second in his last two starts. He's versatile and that gives Christoforou options. (8) PRETTY BOY certainly has the speed and will need the right trip. He's versatile and has been racing at his best in recent starts.

Race 6

(4) MACHNBYRD PRINCESS put in a sub-par effort last week, but gets the return services of Condren. She was a convincing winner two starts ago. (6) PUTMEINTOGO was on her game last start with an impressive victory. She has a good record this season and is a top candidate in this final. (2) LUTETIA SEMALU draws inside, comes out of Moreau's barn and likely will be put in the race early. She has the speed and has been at her best in her last four starts.

Race 7

(10) CATCH THE DREAM likely will be the favourite in here even with a post 10 start. He's been racing at his best and won in this class last week. (8) TAKE MY PICTURE hasn't been worse than second in his last two starts. He has a lot of back class and will offer a low price. (9) DAYLON MIRACLE won last start and is capable of making the class jump. She comes from top connections and is a good option for the triactor.

Race 8

(6) THORN IN YOUR SIDE got the jump on his rivals last start en route to victory. He's a high percentage winner and will likely be the first leader. (4) ALEXAS JACKPOT might be the only horse in the field that could upset THORN IN YOUR SIDE. He was raced conservatively last start and draws well with Jamieson aboard. (2) JA EL POCKETROCKET draws inside and has a good record this season and in this series. He'll likely get an aggressive steer from Davis, Jr.

Race 9

(6) FIVE TOWNS has been knocking on the door in this class and is due for a win. He has good gate-speed and may provide a fair price. (10) WHATA DONATO will have to overcome post 10, but won last week and moves up in class. She has gate-speed and comes out of the Henriksen barn. (4) JCS JAKE won last start in a new lifetime best. A repeat effort makes him a good candidate in here.

Race 10

(8) JAN IT JACKSON has terrific gate-speed and will likely get an aggressive steer from Davis, Jr. She got picked off last start in deep stretch, but is very capable. (5) RUB N TUG won in her latest outing and gets Jamieson back in the bike. She's been racing very consistent in her last number of outings. (4) WAASMULA draws well and has been closing very well. If she's in proper position, she's a good option for the triactor with her closing kick.

Race 11

(2) BRUSHSTROKES draws inside and gets Jamieson in the bike. That's the main reason for my selection after her victory at Flamboro. (7) BAROCKEY has terrific gate-speed and drops in class. She was the favourite last start and failed to win. (6) BLACK MAGIC EYES has finished first and second in her last two starts and comes out of Moreau's barn. She has terrific gate-speed and is racing at the bottom level on this circuit.

Race 12

(8) ALLAMERICAN EXTRA won in this class last week and remains at the same level. He enjoys being put into the race and will likely offer a low price. (2) DOCS HOSS hasn't been worse than third in his last three starts and draws inside. He enjoys racing off-the-pace and shouldn't be too far back. (5) LOST IN PANSLATION finished second last start and has a good record this season. Jamieson is in the bike once again this week, which will decrease his price.
