Woodbine Harness: Friday 11/7 analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: BLOCKING THE WAY (1st)


Race 1

(8) BLOCKING THE WAY has won back-to-back races and appears to be the horse to beat at this level. (6) TOTALLY RIPPED won his qualifier impressively and shows 1:54 speed just a few starts back. (7) RANDOM MARGIN has been a consistent threat in this class for many weeks. She's versatile and often offers a price.

Race 2

(8) LASTING APPEAL raced well to finish third last week in this class and comes from the McIntosh barn. She's 0-for-19 this season, which is a concern but is capable in here. (3) J HIGH draws inside this week and is due for a big effort. (7) NOBLE JILLY has a terrific off-the-pace late kick. If she's positioned well turning for home, she's a player.

Race 3

(5) MAGIC FEELING will debut for new trainer O'Sullivan. She's been a top Gold filly early in the year and will look to bounce back. (8) RAGAZZO DOLCE was a winner last week and jumps in class. He's very consistent as of late and comes from good connections. (3) FASHION GODDESS draws inside and has hit the board in three of her last four.

Race 4

(3) MACHNBYRD PRINCESS draws inside this week and drops in class. She's well overdue for a winning effort. (2) TRAMA UNIT drops in class after finishing third at a higher level last week. (8) BOAT HOUSE ROW finished third last week in this class with a :27 final frame. That type of effort sets her up well in this class.

Race 5

(6) MMS LUCKY BOY finished second in this class last week, comes from the Cirasuola barn and has a good record this season. (2) TIME TO QUIT draws inside and drops in class this week. (1) WILD AND CRAZY GUY was a winner last week impressively and comes from the Moreau barn. He will likely offer a low price again.

Race 6

(3) TOMEI SEELSTER was a winner last week in this class with Jamieson aboard. She draws well again and is capable of doubling up. (9) MAJOR HANGOVER has been knocking on the door as of late and is a logical option for the exactor. (4) APPLE PIE ANGEL has won three straight, including last week from post 10.

Race 7

(2) BET YA has won two of her last three and overcome the outside last week very nicely. I expect a closer effort this start with an inside post. (3) MEA LILLEY MARK was a winner last week, draws inside and comes from a high percentage barn.

Race 8

(1) DREAMFAIR BOGART draws the rail and will debut for new trainer Baillargeon. That's the reason for my selection. (8) OZZY OZZY drops in class and has some back class to offer. (6) HOUSE OF CASH also drops in class this week and makes his second start off the bench. He should be able to provide a better result at a price.

Race 9

(1) NAT A VIRGIN draws the rail, comes from the Jones barn and drops into this more suitable level. (2) BEACH GAL comes from the Menary barn and has a terrific late kick. A post two start is an ideal spot for her. (7) BULLET POINT drops out of the Fillies & Mares Preferred and has all kinds of back class to provide.

Race 10

(5) SEASIDE RORY was a winner two back, draws in the middle of the gate and has been much more consistent as of late. (1) JENNA CASIMIR draws the rail this week, gets McNair in the bike and receives major class relief. (3) SIR LBS Z TAM was a winner last start for trainer Moreau and will move up in class. She has the speed and draws inside for Filion.

Race 11

(2) SHES DANGEROUS comes from the Alagna barn, gets Jamieson in the bike and appears ready after some time off. (6) EAGLE MOLLY has finished second in each of her last two starts in this class and is a logical candidate. (1) KISS ME OR NOT draws the rail and has been knocking on the door as of late.
