Woodbine Harness: Monday 2/3 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool



Race 1

(5) AMADEUS SEELSTER has been knocking on the door and finishing his miles strong. He's ready to break his maiden. (4) ANDREIOS KARDIA finished third in his career debut last week. He closed very well and can only improve off that effort. (1) DRY ICE draws inside and raced very well last week. He'll likely offer a price.

Race 2

(1) JAC SPADE moves into the Auciello barn, draws inside and remains at this same class. (4) DAPPER DENZIL is always a threat in this class and he has a terrific record in his last six. (7) CHEYENNE MOISHE drops down in class and has excellent gate speed. With the class drop, he's a major threat.

Race 3

(2) HLDONTGHTTOYURDRMS went a monster mile last week to win by over five lengths. A repeat effort should make him a winner. (4) CATCH THE DREAM is the next logical candidate in here. He's been in top form recently and won in this class last week. (7) WATKINS has been knocking on the door and has been racing very consistently. He comes out of the Moreau barn and will offer a low price.

Race 4

(1) KEYSTONE MEMPHIS remains undefeated in his career in two starts. He stays at this same level after a perfect drive last week. (5) DERBY DYLAN finished second last start, but tends to be inconsistent. He's a good option if he shows up like last week. (6) RG RIPTIDE closed very well last week and has hit the board in two of his last three.

Race 5

(10) STAR RUFFNREADY drops into the bottom level. He should win in here even with a post 10 start. (2) PROTEGE SEELSTER draws inside and comes out of the Johnson barn. He has a lot of back class in his favour. (6) FALCOR BLUESTONE comes out of the Baillargeon barn, draws well and drops in class.

Race 6

(2) CURIOUS PHOENIX has been much better since the addition of lasix. He doesn't have the best winning record and may offer a price. (4) DADDY WARBUCKS missed as the favourite in his last two and may offer a price this week. He's due to step up. (7) PIECE OF THE ROCK gets Hudon in the bike again and will need an inside trip. He'll offer a price, but is capable in this bottom class.

Race 7

(1) DELCREST JULIAN was much the best last week and even with the class drop I feel he's the horse to beat. (9) NORTHERN VICTORY hasn't been worse than second in each of his last five starts. (7) SIM BROWN has been racing very consistently lately and enjoys being put in the race. He's a good option for the triactor.

Race 8

(9) HERESTOJESSICA won at first asking last start and remains at the same level. Even with a post 10 start, she's the one to beat. (5) CAVIART MANDY won last week at good odds. She closed well and draws even better this week. (6) LALKA has been much better in her last two. She's a top threat in here with her recent efforts.

Race 9

(1) ILL BE THERE draws inside, enters the Auciello barn and is fresh off a win. (3) LEXIS NOAH has hard-used last week, but won the start prior. He draws inside and has terrific gate-speed. (4) AQUANILLA comes out of the Paquette barn, which has been very good in 2014. She drops in class and enjoys racing from behind.

Race 10

(9) FIRSTCLASSFLIGHT did all the work last start and just missed. She draws outside, but has excellent gate-speed to overcome post 10. (3) QUICK LITTLE MISS finished second in this class last start and raced very well. She gets McNair back in the bike, which is a plus. (6) LIVIE will likely offer a price and needs an inside trip. She tends to be inconsistent, but remains at the right class.

Race 11

(8) KEEPING OPTOMISTIC suffered broken equipment last week in the debut for Johnson. I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and try him again. (6) BUGGER MAX has been closing his miles very well and draws better than his last two starts. (4) BETTER ART draws well and hasn't missed the board in three career starts. He's ready for the class jump.

Race 12

(8) ALLAMERICAN EXTRA won a convincing winner last start and gets McNair back in the bike. (6) BARE NECESSITY missed as the favourite last start in this class. He draws better and will look for a turnaround effort. (1) BEEEYOUUUUUU draws inside and has hit the board in four of his last five starts. He's a logical option for the triactor in this class.
