Woodbine Harness: Monday 3/17 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: PARTY DON’T STOP (4th)

Spot Play: LOVES A CHALLENGE (11th)

Race 1

(6) BURLESQUE went a tough trip in her latest and now enters the Nixon barn. She's a constant threat in this class. (1) NO TEASING ME gets the rail and hasn't missed the board in three straight. (8) PLAY AT WYNN got away too far back last week and it cost her. Gallucci's barn has been solid as of late.

Race 2

(2) AMIGO DE GRANDE has been knocking on the door in his last three starts. He's due for a win. Perhaps an easier trip is in store. (1) ZEUS LIGHTNING has won two straight and is full of back class. (6) NOWUCIT NOWUDONT will have to mind his manners, but he comes from a top barn and is very capable.

Race 3

(1) MIDNITE ROMP gets the rail, drops in class and is a good fit for this level. (6) POWER ROCK also drops in class, gets Jamieson in the bike and may offer a price. (3) FOUR STARZ HOLD EM has been aggressively driven in his last two and it's been paying off. He draws better this week with the same driver.

Race 4

(1) PARTY DONT STOP gets the rail in his first career debut. His solid qualifiers suspect he's winners circle ready. (6) ROYAL RECEPTION comes out of the McIntosh barn and continues to improve with each start. (4) NEW PATROL draws inside and posted a sizzling :26 final frame in his qualifier last week. He's ready to drop time.

Race 5

(7) BURNIN MONEY raced well last start despite being parked to the quarter. With a cleaner trip, he can handle these rivals. (9) SMARTY PANTS doesn't like to win, but finishes her miles off strong and drops in class. (4) ROCKYS FIRST gets Jamieson again in the bike, which seems to be a winning combination. He draws well and is versatile.

Race 6

(9) MR BIG HEAD went a terrific mile last week in the debut for trainer Tackoor. He has excellent gate-speed and faces a similar group. (7) REAL ROCKER drops in class, comes out of the Johnson barn and likely will get a lot of attention in here. (4) BETTER GET READY has been racing well in his last two, draws inside and should offer a fair price.

Race 7

(5) SI SEMALU received a conservative steer last week from Filion. He closed very well and that sets him up well this week. (6) ANDREIOS KADRIA wiggled his way out last week to find room and score the win. He's at the same level and will offer a low price. (8) REGAL SON hasn't missed the board yet in three career starts. He enjoys racing off a helmet and likely will receive that trip once again.

Race 8

(6) FIRST IMPRESSION is always a threat in this class and has been racing at his best. (8) CHEYENNE FORD returns to a level where he's very competitive at. He won at a higher level just two starts ago. (7) CREIGHTON HANOVER was the favourite last week and failed to win. I'll try him again in his second start on this circuit.

Race 9

(2) DUKESTER scored fresh off the claim last week and returns to the same level. (4) MOPEY COREY has the most gate-speed in the field, draws inside and has been a top threat at this level. (8) O U GUS hasn't missed the board in three straight. He's versatile and usually offers a fair price.

Race 10

(6) BUDDHA BLUE CHIP put forth a terrific effort last start for Jamieson and trainer Darling. This colt continues to improve with every start. (8) ACCOUNT ROLLOVER is versatile, comes from a Hall of Fame barn and hasn't been worse than second in five starts this season. (4) MEETYOUATMIDNIGHT has the speed for this class and may offer a price. He draws well, comes out of the Gillis barn and should receive an inside trip.

Race 11

This is a wide-open race, but (8) LOVES A CHALLENGE raced very well last week and will look for the same type of trip. (9) ROCK N GO is versatile and closed well last week at high odds. (2) MATTS DELIVERY draws inside, showed the speed needed last week and continues to climb the claiming ladder.
