Woodbine Harness: Monday 2/10 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool



Race 1

(7) KEYSTONE MEMPHIS wasn't himself last start, but was terrific two back. I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt. (8) CASIMIR LAWMAN has been first and second recently in this class and returns to this level. He's a major threat. (3) TEX comes out of the Snowshoe, draws inside and has excellent gate-speed.

Race 2

(5) MOONTAN has been knocking on the door and closed very well last start. He draws better and certainly has the speed. (8) COLLECT CALL suffered a wide trip in his latest and closed very well. He moves into a condition event and may offer a price. (10) O U GUS has hit the board in each of his last two and is capable of overcoming the outside.

Race 3

(2) ALL CHROME draws inside, comes out of the Johnson barn and has won five straight. (7) SO BAD IM GOOD hasn't missed the board in each of his last four and remains at this level. (8) ROCK N GO has been racing very consistently and is versatile. He's a good option for the triactor.

Race 4

(1) ILL BE THERE draws inside, comes out of Auciello's barn and may offer a fair price in here. (10) RECKON IM READY won last week in this class and will have to overcome the outside. He has gate-speed and is a major threat. (2) DUKESTER draws inside again and has hit the board in each of his last two outings.

Race 5

(5) FIRSTCLASSFLIGHT moves into the Menary barn and has excellent gate-speed. That's the reason for my selection. (1) ST LADS MORGAN is always a threat in this class and won last week. She gets the rail and Jamieson in the bike. (3) BURLESQUE draws inside, comes out of the Johnson barn and once again is classified accordingly.

Race 6

(2) IDEAL SHADOW put forth a solid qualifying effort for Baillargeon. He appears ready at first asking. (5) ROCK N ROLL LEGACY has excellent gate-speed and finished second last week. He's a prime contender once again. (9) AMADEUS SEELSTER has hit the board in two of his last three and likely will race from the back.

Race 7

(2) NORTHERN VICTORY is the top candidate in here with his winning record as of late and good post. (5) SIM BROWN went a tough trip in his latest. With a clean trip, he's a major factor. (8) FRILL SEEKER has been racing at his best recently with a pair of wins. A repeat effort makes him a good option in here with the class jump.

Race 8

(2) ALLAMERICAN EXTRA went a tough trip in his latest, but won the start prior. If he gets left alone on the front, he's hard to overlook. (9) RAVE ON has been racing very consistent since the addition of lasix and is a logical option for the exactor. (5) WESTERN SENATOR provided the upset in here last week. He draws well and still may offer a price.

Race 9

(2) NOWUCIT NOWUDONT finished third in the Preferred last week, draws inside and was timed in 1:53 3/5 in his latest. (4) TAKE MY PICTURE made an uncharacteristic miscue last week, but has a lot of back class in his favour. (7) AMIGO DE GRANDE has won two straight in 2014 and has excellent gate-speed. He's a top threat in here and may offer a fair price.

Race 10

(3) KEEPING OPTOMISTIC scored a convincing win last week for trainer Johnson and remains at the same class. (1) ONE BAD NIGHT draws inside and debuts for new trainer Lindsey. He hasn't missed the board yet this season. (5) MACHIN MONEY won last week in this class. He did all the work on the front and draws better.

Race 11

(5) DAPPER DENZIL draws well, is fresh off a win and should be able to handle the class jump. (2) JDS CALEB MAN draws inside and has hit the board in two of his last three. (1) JACS SPADE gets the rail and debuts for new trainer Agostino. He's very versatile and has a solid record.
