Woodbine Harness: Monday 2/17 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: IDEAL SHADOW (8th)

Spot Play: CASIMIR LAWMAN (7th)

Race 1

(1) PHOTO MASS got the job done last week, draws the rail and remains at the same level. (2) ROCKIN WITH DEWEY has won two straight, is versatile and comes from a top trotting barn. (4) PAPER BACKED LINDY comes out of the Henriksen barn and has hit the board in two of his last three. He's a good option for the triactor.

Race 2

(6) MEETYOUATMIDNIGHT was the even-money favourite last week and delivered. He comes out of the Gillis barn and remains at this level. (1) SO BAD IM GOOD has been racing very consistently in this class, draws the rail and should be better placed. (3) TEX is a good option for the triactor if he leaves the gate. He draws well and he races much better that way.

Race 3

(9) HLDONTGHTTOYURDRMS was dominant in both his last two victories in this class and will be the heavy favourite. (8) CATCH THE DREAM is very consistent, versatile and gets Waples in the bike. (10) DELCREST JULIAN exploded off cover last week en-route to victory. If he's properly placed, he's a top threat.

Race 4

(10) ACCOUNT ROLLOVER has won two straight, comes out of Hall of Famer McIntosh's barn and is capable of overcoming post 10. (4) MACHMILLIONS draws well and raced very well last week considering it was his first start back after a layoff. (9) STAR MESSENGER will offer a price, but he's hit the board in each of his last two starts and is capable of dropping more time on this circuit.

Race 5

(8) JUSTALITTLEFASTER debuts for new trainer Gillis. He has the speed and was timed in 1:54 3/5 just two starts ago. (2) GUNGA WIN returns to the Lalonde barn, draws inside and won impressively two back. (4) NORTHERN SPARK has back class in his favour and has been racing consistently in this class.

Race 6

(7) WESTERN SENATOR has finished first and second in his last two in this class. He's on his game right now. (9) FOREGO THE CIGAR has won two straight and jumps up in class slightly. He can handle it along with post 10. (8) RAVE ON has been knocking on the door and his hit the board in four of his last five.

Race 7

(9) CASIMIR LAWMAN raced very well last week and closed hard. He'll have to overcome the outside once again, but has gate-speed. (7) ROCK N GO has hit the board in four of his last five and has excellent gate-speed. He may offer a fair price. (6) DERBY DYLAN comes out of the Puddy barn, draws well and is always a threat in this class.

Race 8

(5) IDEAL SHADOW crushed his rivals last week and is certainly capable of the class jump. (6) ONE BAD NIGHT hasn't missed the board yet this season, draws well and gets Jamieson in the bike. (8) BAD BOY MATT was taken to the back last week and wasn't a factor. If he's put in the race early, I like his chances.

Race 9

(5) RECKON IM READY draws much better this week, remains at the same class and won this event two back. (6) ILL BE THERE is a classy trotter with a lot of consistency. He's hit the board in four of his last five. (7) MOPEY COREY has been racing at his best. He scored an open length victory last week and jumps in class.

Race 10

(5) AMAZON ART closed well last week, but was too far back. He draws better and drops in class. (6) WINNING DREAM drops in class and adds lasix. He comes from a good barn and will look for a turnaround effort. (9) AMBLE OVER HANOVER has finished first and third in his last two. He raced out of a good barn and has excellent gate-speed.

Race 11

(2) DAPPER DENZIL draws inside, is versatile and gets Jamieson in the bike. (1) JAC SPADE gets the rail and has hit the board in his last three of four. (7) REAL ROCKER raced much better last week for trainer Johnson. They made some equipment changes on him, which obviously helped.

Race 12

(1) ADAYMER SEELSTER draws the rail and won in this class last week. (2) ST LADS MORGAN returns to the Auciello barn. She draws inside and won this event two back. (7) RAMMYS GIRL moves onto this circuit, but deserves to after a terrific start to her 2014 campaign at Flamboro. She has gate-speed and comes from a high percentage trainer.
