Woodbine Harness: Friday 4/25 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool



Race 1

(8) DELCREST JULIAN gets dropped into a claimer after racing against a much tougher level. Even after the layoff, he appears to be the horse to beat. (7) RECKON IM READY is fresh off a gate-to-wire score and gets Jamieson back in the bike. (3) JOSEPH GERARD draws inside and has been closing very well in his last two to hit the ticket.

Race 2

(9) RAMMY GIRL has the speed for this class and moves into the Riley barn. She may offer a fair price and is capable of the task. (1) SOMEBAYSOMEWHERE draws inside, comes out of the Johnson barn and should get a cleaner trip this week. (6) ONE LAST BONO won at this level last week, enjoys being put in the race and will offer a low price.

Race 3

(2) MIYAGI HANOVER moves into the Auciello barn, draws well and is due for his first win of the season. (4) FRIEND OR FOE has won two straight and still doesn't get the respect from the betting public. (7) PARLIA HANOVER missed last week as the favourite in the debut of Montini. She's worth playing again at this same class.

Race 4

(5) MACH A WISH closed very well in her first start of the season last week and should be even better on the class drop. (1) DREAMFAIR ECLIPSE gets the rail, drops in class and has a patented late kick. (4) EAT ME UP has a lot of back class in her favour, draws well and closed very well last week at a higher level.

Race 5

(8) HOUSE OF CASH has terrific closing speed, but doesn't like to win. Class drop is a big factor. (10) O U SEXY GUY is versatile, drops in class and should provide a fair price from post 10. (2) PAPER BACKED LINDY draws well, comes out of Henriksen's barn and remains at the same class.

Race 6

(4) ALIBI SEELSTER had a successful rookie season last year and is fresh off a convincing qualifier for trainer Darling. (1) MY SECRET BELLE hasn't missed the board yet this season and has returned after a short break. (2) RUBIS PRESCOTT draws well, gets Jamieson in the bike and hasn't missed the board in her last four.

Race 7

(4) PRIVATE PERFORMANC has been knocking on the door at this level, comes out of the McIntosh barn and is due for her first win of the season. (3) RIVETING draws well and has also been a prime threat in her last three. (8) A FILLY AFFAIR got the job done last week at this level and is a good option for the triactor.

Race 8

(1) LASTING APPEAL gets the rail and makes her first start of the season. Her 1:51 effort last year is hard to overlook. (3) ARTFUL IMPULSE also comes from the McIntosh barn, draws well and has been racing strongly in her first two of the season. (5) TAKE THAT HANOVER comes out of the Darling barn, won her qualifier last week and appears ready in her first start of the campaign.

Race 9

(4) LIVE TO DREAM has a lot of back class in her favour, is versatile and drops down to the bottom class. (3) LYONSAURA draws inside and has hit the board in two of her last three. (8) CANT STOP ROCKIN closed very well last week and is capable of hitting the traictor at a high price. She'll need a trip from the outside.

Race 10

(8) WAASMULA went a punishing mile last week, but tends to be inconsistent. I'll try her again after last week's effort. (1) MARQUISE DE SARAH will attract a lot of attention based on her record this season and is a must have for the exactor. (5) JENNA CASIMIR continues to move up the ladder and after two straight wins, she's capable of hitting the triactor in her toughest test.

Race 11

(4) WINDSONG GLAMOROUS draws well, drops in class and has been pacing back-to-back 1:52 miles. (7) LIFETIME JEWEL makes her third start of the season, remains at the same class and closed very well last week. (10) WARRAWEE LIMELIGHT will have to overcome post 10, but has a lot of back class to her and has hit the board in two of her last three.
