Woodbine Harness: Friday 12/5 analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: VAL DI NOTO (8th)

Spot Play: P L HURRICANE (4th)

Race 1

(9) FROSTY DELIGHT comes from the Baillargeon barn, shows quick gate-speed and finished a game second last week in this class. (1) TOMEI SEELSTER draws the rail, gets Jamieson in the bike and comes from a high percentage barn. (3) MAJOR HANOVER doesn't like to win, but draws inside and offers terrific gate-speed. She's a good option for the triactor at a price.

Race 2

(3) LATOKA went a tough trip last week from an outside post, but managed to finish third. He's got a solid record coming into this event and comes from the Cirasuola barn. (6) STONEBRIDGE RICH has been much better as of late and was a game third in the Autumn Final last week. (4) STUARTS DYNASTY is carrying a two race win streak and offers terrific gate-speed to be well positioned.

Race 3

(7) JABAS LUCK has won three straight and looks like the obvious choice in here. (3) DAZZLE N DELIGHT draws inside, offers quick closing speed and has been a main threat at this class for many weeks. She will offer a low price. (8) EXHILARATED comes from the Fellows barn and just missed last week in this class as 23-1.

Race 4

(1) P L HURRICANE won this contest last week and has been at his best recently. (9) DEBBIES MACH comes out of the Autumn Series, shows 1:54 speed and comes from the Puddy barn. (7) WILDCAT MAGIC has been drawing outside as of late, but is versatile and is a price option to kick off the early Pick 4.

Race 5

(5) TIME TO QUIT comes from the Auciello barn, has a solid record this season and likely will offer a low price in this wide-open tilt. (9) COLD CERTIFIED has some back class to offer and finished a game second last week at this level. (4) STANDING MY GROUND gets much needed post relief and drops into this bottom level.

Race 6

(4) MARQUISE DE SARAH qualified well in her return and will make her first start for trainer Dave Menary. (8) D GS PESQUERO has all kinds of back class to offer, comes from the Moreau barn and is fresh off a win. (1) WILDCAT BEAUTY has hit the board in four of her last five starts and has been the picture of consistency this season.

Race 7

(7) MY GAL MATTIE raced well to finish third last week in her return. I expect her to be better this start. (2) MACHNBYRD PRINCESS hasn't won yet this season from 16 starts, but has some back class to offer and drops into this bottom level. (1) ADAYMER SEELSTER draws the rail, gets Jamieson in the bike and closed strongly last week.

Race 8

(2) VAL DI NOTO draws well and will be the heavy favourite as she debuts for the Moreau barn and gets Filion in the bike. (4) A FEARLESS AFFAIR is fresh off a win and has hit the board in each of her last four starts. (7) SWINGING CAMI comes from the Alagna barn, gets James MacDonald in the bike and is searching for her first win of the season.

Race 9

(6) ABC MUSCLES BOY has won four straight and is the horse to beat in this dash. (1) LUCK IS ALL I NEED draws inside for Team McNair and has been much better in her last two. (4) TOSCA has the speed, comes from the Per Henriksen barn and was a beaten favourite last start in this class.

Race 10

(7) AMERICAN IN PARIS is the queen of this class with three straight wins. (3) WAASMULA has won two of her last three, draws inside and is on top of her game right now. (1) MARLEE B has been very consistent all season, offers versatility and has hit the board in each of her last three.

Race 11

(8) BAROCKEY has terrific gate-speed and has been racing very strongly as of late in this class. (6) MIA SEELSTER drops in class, starts in the middle of the gate and is a price option. (4) BOAT HOUSE ROW has hit the board in four of her last five starts, draws well and gets Jamieson in the bike.
