Woodbine Harness: Friday 2/7 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: GUNGA WIN (3rd)

Spot Play: COUNTRY DELIGHT (4th)

Race 1

(2) MUSCLE ON BROADWAY closed very well last week to finish third. He should be much closer to the front this week with the post relief. (10) MIYAGI HANOVER has been knocking on the door in his last two starts in this class and comes from a top trotting barn. (7) K D BELLA put forth a terrific qualifier in her latest and will make her career debut. She looks like she can drop significant time.

Race 2

(6) IGNITE THE NITE won last start in a speedy effort and looks like she can handle the class jump. (5) PEPPERMINT PATTI has hit the board in her last four of five starts and used a :27 3/5 final frame last week to finish third. (3) MY SECRET BELLE draws inside and has hit the board in each of her last three starts.

Race 3

(8) GUNGA WIN was a convincing winner last start and now moves into the Bourassa barn. He moves slightly up in class, but will likely be the favourite. (10) JUSTALITTLEFASTER has finished second in each of his last three starts and once again is a top contender in here. (9) SMOKIN DABRA raced very well last week and may provide a price. He's versatile and is a good option for the triactor.

Race 4

(8) COUNTRY DELIGHT hasn't been at her best, but she qualified extremely well and perhaps trainer Gillis has found the key to her. She adds lasix and has the speed. (9) MAKE SOME MEMORIES hasn't missed the board in six career starts and raced very well last week under new trainer Laus. (6) LYONSAURA comes out of the Blizzard Series and into this class. She should appreciate the class relief.

Race 5

(2) DREAMFAIR BOGART is a top threat in this class as he hasn't missed the board in his last four. (7) RAMZAN comes out of the Moreau barn and raced terrific last start. He has the speed and put forth a much-improved effort. (6) BWT TAJ comes out of the Henriksen barn and hasn't been at his best lately. He gets class relief and a better post to work with.

Race 6

(2) BAD GIRL VEGAS draws inside, is fresh off a win and has been racing at her best in recent outings. (5) LYONSSWEETIE comes out of the Johnson barn, draws well and has hit the board in four of her last five. (4) D GS PESQUERO has excellent gate-speed and just missed last week. She's a good option for the triactor.

Race 7

(4) LIBERTY BEST STAR has won four straight and most recently for new trainer Riley. He looks like he can step up his game even more on this circuit. (7) SHADOW BARAN has some back class to him and has hit the board in two of his last three. (9) SHOW TOPPER comes from a high percentage trainer, raced very well last season and has hit the board in four of his last five.

Race 8

(9) SHES A MANIAC has been racing terrific in her last number of starts and gets class relief. She'll likely be the favourite in here. (4) WINDSONG GLAMOROUS drops in class and may offer a price. She has the speed and gets Davis, Jr. in the bike. (6) WARRAWEE LIMELIGHT is a classy mare and is very versatile. She closed well last week to finish fourth and remains at the same class.

Race 9

(8) OAKLEA VICTOR has won three straight and remains at the same level. He's the one to beat. (9) ORDER BY COMMANDER is a logical option for the exactor. He hasn't missed the board in his last five, gets Jamieson in the bike and is very versatile. (7) HER NAME IS LOLA will likely offer a price, but has hit the board in two of her last three. She raced very well last week considering it was a first-over effort.

Race 10

(4) MISS SAND CREEK drops back down in class. She draws well and comes out of the Gillis barn. (6) AIR GUITAR HANOVER closed well last week to finish third and remains at the same class. A short field only helps her off-the-pace tactics. (1) ITS NO SECRET gets the rail and was hard-used last week. A cleaner trip should make her much more competitive.

Race 11

(10) TRUE REFLECTION has been excellent in her last two starts. She draws outside, but has excellent gate speed and gets Jamieson. (4) HERESTOJESSICA is fresh off the claim and enters the Johnson barn. That will only decrease her value. (5) JEREMEYS JEWEL tends to be inconsistent, but raced well last week to finish third. She closed well and draws well once again in the same class.
