Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: JABAS LUCK (9th)

Spot Play: SIX BAX (6th)

Race 1

(2) DREAMFAIR BOGART will make his second start in the Baillargeon barn and hopefully the gelding can bounce back following a sub-par effort last week at a low price. (1) HELD IN BALANCE draws the rail and comes will make his second start in this class for trainer Tony Montini. (9) MUSICAL SPELL has been facing horses of younger age in the NW2 or $40K life classification that he's been racing in and now drops into this bottom class on the WEG Circuit.

Race 2

(8) UFDRAGONS ROCKET has been racing against tougher competition as of late and now drops into this claiming event and should get a lot more respect. (6) RAVE ON has been the picture of consistency at this level all season and comes from top connections in trainer Corey Johnson and driver Randy Waples. (7) JAC SPADE was a winner in his latest at this level and faces a similar bunch again this week.

Race 3

(1) ZEUS LIGHTNING hasn't raced since Oct. 20, which is a concern, but the veteran draws the rail in this level that he should be very comfortable with. (2) MMS LUCKY BOY has been knocking on the door as of late at this level and can't be overlooked for the exactor. (3) ROCKYS FIRST draws inside and gets Jody Jamieson in the bike, which will influence his price.

Race 4

(7) MAJOR HOTTIE is full of back class and is a good option in this wide-open tilt. (4) DREDYL HANOVER will make his third start back after having some time away from the track and is starting to find his legs for trainer Gord Remmen. (9) NOBESTBFOR will need to overcome post 10, which isn't easy to do, but he comes from the Baillargeon and was a beaten favourite last week in this class.

Race 5

(2) J JS DELIVERY draws inside and will make his sixth career start for trainer Shawn Robinson. (7) READ THE PROPOSAL shows speed in the 1:54-1:55 range and is one of the most experienced youngsters in this dash. (3) NATURESCAPE draws inside again this week and the gelding comes from the Gregg McNair barn.

Race 6

(5) SIX BAX dropped into a claimer last week and was assigned a post 10 begin. Driver Mario Baillargeon utilized the gelding's gate-speed as he made the front, but tired down the stretch. (7) PROGEGE SEELSTER has over $300K of back class to offer and continues to be a major player when racing at this level. (6) HOLY MOLIE MAGGIE doesn't like to win as her one-for-22 record suggests, but has hit the board in 15 of 22 starts this season.

Race 7

(6) OCEANVIEW BINDI was a winner two starts back in this class then followed it up with a third-place effort last week. (8) BEST RISQUE has been a frequent competitor in this class for many months and can't be overlooked with her consistency and solid on-the-board percentage. (7) ALL CHOCOLATE has drawn poorly in two of his last three starts, but draws a little better in here this evening

Race 8

(4) NORTHERN VICTORY is a talented trotter that draws inside and drops in class for trainer Joe Cirasuola. (6) NOWUCIT NOWUDONT has posted back-to-back wins since entering the Per Henriksen barn and the talented trotter has found his form again. (8) BUDDY HALLY tends to race rather inconsistently for Team McNair, but drops in class and perhaps that will be the recipe for a better result.

Race 9

(6) JABAS LUCK comes from a high percentage trainer in Bob Young and the seven-year-old was a winner last week in this class. (9) DAZZLE N DELIGHT has been a main threat in this class over the past few weeks and will offer a low price again in here. (8) EXHILARATED has been a fringe player in this class for many weeks and continues to get cheques for trainer Rob Fellows.

Race 10

(7) TURBO MACH will make his second career start for trainer John Pentland and the sophomore raced very well last week in his pari-mutuel debut. (3) SHARK LEAP HANOVER finally draws inside this week after a pair of outside post positions. (4) WHISTLE JIMMY K is the youngster full brother to Ontario Sires Stakes graduate I Found My Beach (1:50 1/5 - $500K) and the Mach Three son will be making his first career start.

Race 11

(8) APPLE PIE ANGEL looks like the most logical option to pick on top in this dash with her winning form. (7) MAJOR HANGOVER has hit the board in each of her last six starts and comes from the Vic Puddy barn. (9) TOMEI SEELSTER comes from a very high percentage trainer in Jim Stewart and the youngster has hit the board in four of her last five starts.
