Woodbine Harness: Horses to watch from Dec. 1 - Dec. 5


Thursday, December 1

HES A SENSATION (NW3500) wired the field winning by five on a night when front-steppers were failing. 

EAST END (CLMHCP15/20000/3YO) followed wide from a bad spot and closed well to be second best.

MR MATCH ON BEACH (NW1) set the pace under long press and dug in gamely but was nailed by the fresher late rush of the winner. Beaten favorite can get it done in next.

CRANKIN IT UP (CLM8000) exploded out of the pocket and should take another.

BUGATTI (NW2) beaten favorite was pressed twice and dug in gamely until the last yards.

Friday, December 2

MARVALOUS JET (NW3FM) lukewarm beaten favorite rallied well but had too far to come in last.

BERNADETTE (NW4FM) closed well but late from third over and can get lucky with better trip.

SUNSET SARA (CLMHCP15/20000/3YOF) sat near the rear, rallied late and should improve in next.

JIMBELINA (NW2FM) went down the road and held well. Winning favorite should be hard to beat in next.

Saturday, December 3

MISSION MAN (NW2) battled gamest in 4-horse battle for 2nd in most recent and has to be respected.

TWOMACSONEMACH (NW4) rallied uncovered and just missed in game rally.

BAROCKEY (NW6000FM) tipped in the final turn with cover and rallied strong and game to get up for 2nd on a night when speed was holding.

COOL ROCK (NW16000) followed wide around empty cover and finished full of pace.

Monday, December 5

YORK SEELSTER (CLMHCP20/25000) absolutely crushed in front stepping variant busting victory last time and should be able to take another. 

LOVEDANCINGWITHYOU (NW6000) was in the pocket with nowhere to go last time and could get luckier in next.

DIRTY SECRET (CLMHCP12/15000) wired in strong fashion last time out and will be hard to deny.

ZAGSTER (NW13000) set the pace under constant pressure and held well at 15-1 but the late closing tripped out favorite's late move was too much to hold off.
