Woodbine Harness: Monday 1/13 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool



Race 1

(5) HOPIESDRAGNINTHEDO raced very well last start and appears to race at his best on or near the front. He should get that again with a good post and MacDonald in the bike. (2) BROTHER JOHN is carrying a five race win streak onto this circuit and gets Jamieson in the bike. (4) DRY ICE has been knocking on the door and is capable in this series.

Race 2

(9) DREAMFAIR BOGART will have to overcome post nine, but won at this level two starts ago and has been racing very well. (10) CANBEC KADENCE won in this class lsat start and will have to use his gate-speed to overcome post 10. (2) MUSCLE ON BROADWAY was the favourite last week and will look for a turnaround effort. He's capable with an inside post.

Race 3

(6) MAKE SOME MEMORIES is due to win at this level. She's missed by no more than a head in her last three. (9) ABS TO ENVY closed very well in her last two starts and makes her second start for Moreau. (5) SUCKITUPBUTTERCUP draws well and will likely offer a price. I suspect we'll see her put into the race with MacDonald aboard.

Race 4

(6) ONTARIO SUCCESS continues to race well since his layoff and is a nice fit for this series. He closes well and comes from a top barn. (8) KG DRAGONATOR closed very well to win as the favourite in his latest. He's lightly raced and will get a lot of attention. (9) MEETYOUATMIDNIGHT has hit the board in four of her last five starts and is able to overcome post nine for the third straight week.

Race 5

(2) BETTER ART draws inside and raced very well last start. This is a wide-open tilt and she shows a lot of versatility for being lightly raced. (3) MOTOR SHARK comes out of the Moreau barn and drops in class. (7) BEVEL HANOVER has hard used in both his last two starts to earn the front. This will be the second time he races in the McMaster barn and I'd expect to see an improved effort.

Race 6

(5) NOWUCIT NOWUDONT made a miscue in his latest, but certainly has the speed and drops in class. (6) COOL GUY also drops in class, has terrific gate-speed and will draw a lot of attention. (7) ZEUS LIGHTNING has a lot of back class in his favour and closed very well last start.

Race 7

(10) KATHERINE B is carrying a two-race win streak in her favour, comes out of Moreau's barn and has gate-speed to overcome post 10. (9) FIRSTCLASSFLIGHT has also won two straight and moves onto this circuit. She had a terrific 2012 campaign. (1) NORVENA HANOVER gets the rail and has hit the board in three of his last four starts in this class.

Race 8

(2) LITTLEBITACLASS moves into the Menary barn and will get a lot of attention in here based on his connections and record last season. (8) SENATTLE SLEW comes out of the Gillis barn, enjoys racing from behind and has hit the board in three of her last four. (6) TEX is a good option to consider for the triactor. He doesn't like to win, but has hit the board in three of his last four.

Race 9

(7) JUSTASMALLTOWNGIRL has been providing high odds despite racing terrific in this class in recent starts. She's hard to overlook in here. (10) COLLECT CALL has terrific gate-speed, moves onto this circuit and comes from a very capable trainer. (1) INCREDIBLE FRANK gets the rail and the addition of lasix has appeared to help. He'll likely offer a price.

Race 10

(3) ASTOR enters the bottom class on this circuit, but he comes out of O'Sullivan's barn and gets McNair in the bike. (2) I SCOOT SAM draws inside and enjoyed a terrific season last year. He has excellent gate-speed and has won four of his last five. (1) DONEGAL GERALD gets the rail and raced terrific last start in this class. He may offer a price again.

Race 11

(1) DHARMA INITIATIVE draws the rail and has closed very well in each of his last two starts. He's at a level where he's capable of winning. (6) BAD BOY MATT comes out of the O'Sullivan barn and has hit the board in each of his last three starts. (3) ROCK N GO is fresh off a win, has gate-speed and is classified accordingly.

Race 12

(3) DUKE DID IT won at this level two starts ago, but wasn't himself last week. I'm looking for a turnaround effort. (2) BOOGITYDOC BOOGITY draws well and has won two straight. He enjoys closing and raced very well last season. (8) WESTERN SENATOR won last start at high odds. He's a good option for the triactor as he remains at the same level.
