Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: MURRAYFIELD (10th)

Spot Play: AN ANGEL SHES NOT (4th)

Race 1

(2) BAD GIRL VEGAS draws inside and is fresh off a win. She's won two of her last three and gets Drury back in the bike. (8) CALL IT COURAGE has been the picture of consistency in recent outings and remains in the same class. (7) DIAMONDS PRINCESS raced terrific in the debut of trainer Paquette last week. She should improve off that effort.

Race 2

(2) OAKLEA VICTOR draws inside and has won four of his last five, including at this level last week. (6) ITS PAYDAY FRIDAY was hard used to earn the front last start and will look for a cleaner trip. He has the talent and is very versatile. (3) ALEXANDER LUKAS draws inside, gets Jamieson in the bike and raced well last start. He'll likely offer a price and is a good option for the triactor.

Race 3

(8) SAYITALL BB comes out of the Burke barn and is undefeated in her young career. (5) MISS POPPYCOCK is a perfect one-for-one to start this season and is a logical choice in here. (9) WINBAK ELLA debuts on lasix and has a terrific on-the-board record. She's versatile and will likely offer a low price.

Race 4

(7) AN ANGEL SHES NOT is in top form and looks like the best in this division. She's lightly raced and continues to improve. (2) ONE LAST BONO has excellent gate-speed, draws inside and comes from a high percentage trainer. (8) STONEBRIDGE CLASSY isn't consistent, but has the speed for this level. She doesn't have the best gate-speed, so quick fractions will help.

Race 5

(2) ORDER BY COMMANDER draws inside and finished a game second in this class last week. Jamieson aboard is only a plus. (6) LOKI DE VIE won last start and now moves up in class. He comes from a top trotting barn and this isn't a deep field. (8) CHEVIOUS COLE hasn't been at his best in recent starts and will look for a turnaround effort. When he was on his game, he was a top threat.

Race 6

(4) MARQUISE DE SARAH has won her last two starts, including in this class last start. She has excellent gate-speed and will look to repeat. (8) HAT TRICK HONEY is a good option in here. She's been knocking on the door and versatile. (5) PERFECTLY ROYAL gets McNair in the bike and closed very well in her latest. She may provide a higher price, but has been racing at her best.

Race 7

(6) DOCS HOPE drops significantly in class and that's the main reason for my selection. (2) JENNA CASIMIR moves up in class following the claim, draws inside and debuts for a high percentage trainer. (1) LYONSSWEETIE gets the rail and is fresh off a Niagara Series win. She comes from a top barn and gets Waples.

Race 8

(6) WONDERFUL CHARM adds lasix and comes out of the Niagara Series. She's versatile and has raced very competitively in this class. (1) JET HOT STUFF gets the rail and has hit the board in each of his last six. (7) HANDS OFF HANOVER gets Waples in the bike, which is a plus. She hasn't been at her best and will look for a turnaround effort.

Race 9

(5) HOLY MOLIE MAGGIE comes out of the Menary barn, has been racing at her best and is classified accordingly for this circuit. (6) WHATTA HOTTY has been knocking on the door in her last two and closes very well. (9) ROSE RUN ORIANA comes from a high percentage barn and has hit the board in three of her last four. Expect a price.

Race 10

(8) MURRAYFIELD looks like the horse to beat in here after two straight wins. (6) LYONSAURA has excellent gate speed, comes out of the Johnson barn and has the speed for this series. (9) TWIN B INSPIRING has a terrific record in her five career starts. She enjoys racing from behind and continues to improve with each start.

Race 11

(2) SHES A MANIAC draws inside and has won her last two straight. She remains at the same level and will offer a low price. (6) LIVE TO DREAM has been racing very competitive recently in this class. She draws well again and is a top candidate. (8) LETS GO GET EM has hit the board in two of her last three. She's versatile and will offer a price from post eight.

Race 12

(8) MACHO CHICK has hit the board in each of her last three starts. She has the speed for this class and will likely be put into play early. (1) BURLESQUE draws inside and moves into the Johnson barn. That's the main reason for my selection. (4) MISS SAND CREEK comes out of the Gillis barn and drops in class.
