Woodbine Harness: Horses to watch from March 7 to March 10


Friday, March 7

BESTULLDOTANITE (NW3500FM) Put in a long parked-the-mile uncovered effort chasing the leader all the way, tired in the lane but dug in with some determination.

DESIGNER GENES (CLM12000) Left, tucked, pulled to the half, rushed up powerfully, took the lead and roared away. Repeat seems inevitable.

CANBEC KADENCE (NW2) Went down the road at 10-1 in a good front-stepping effort over a tiring track and bears watching.

ROCK N ROLL XAMPLE (NW2FM) Left smartly, took the top, yielded and was shuffled back, pulled to the half, brushed to the top, opened up and held safely under some late whip reminders. Should be tough to beat in next.

Saturday, March 8

WEST SIDE STORY (NW3) Got off slowly, was buried on the rail, tipped heading home and charged powerfully but too late. Beaten favorite has to earn a long look in next.

NICKLE BAG (NW3) Left, tucked, pulled to the half, gained cover, got somewhat blindswitched in the lane as the eventualy winner loomed outside of him, found room between horses in the late stages and gamed-out second.

CHAMPAGNE PHIL (NW12000) Spent a lot of time on the outside, chased the pace to the third panel, tucked behind the leader and chased him home but was second best.

DAPPER DENZIL (CLMHCP20/30000) Rolled by easily from the pocket in last at nearly 20-1 and can repeat.

MR BIG HEAD (NW3500) Was much the best going down the road in last and should take another. 

Monday, March 10

AMIGO DE GRANDE (NW32000) It wasn't a good day for front-end speed, but he did have a four length lead in early stretch before tiring.

FIRST IMPRESSION (CLMHCP8/12000) Yielded to the winner's pressure heading home and was a two back but battled through the lane to just miss at the wire.

SLIP INTO GLIDE (NW10500) Rushed home from a far back spot through the lane to win going away. He was nearly eight back at the third call.

LOVES A CHALLENGE (CLM20000) Was never going to catch the powerful winner in last, but had to clear a wall of horses in deep stretch to get up for second with quick finish once he found a route.

MOPEY COREY (NW6000) Got away from all but the odds-on winner in a front-stepping effort last time around the oval and could get it done in next.
