Woodbine Harness: Monday 4/7 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool


Spot Play: TEX (4th)

Race 1

(6) ROCKIN WITH DEWEY has been racing very well this season, is a higher percentage winner and looks like the mare to beat. (5) FRISKY MAGIC comes from a top trotting barn and faces an easier bunch in here. (7) JUSTASMALLTOWNGIRL should be very competitive in this field, but tends to be inconsistent. She's versatile and draws outside in a short field.

Race 2

(1) ANDREIOS KARDIA draws inside and ran out of racetrack last start. He closed very strongly and shouldn't be overlooked. (2) DRAGON SEELSTER hasn't missed the board yet this season and is a prime threat in this series. He draws well and continues to improve. (6) KUCHAR gets the combination of Jamieson & Austin. He's versatile in a short field and an excellent option for the triactor.

Race 3

(4) ROSE RUN ORIANA has terrific gate speed and made an uncharacteristic break last start. She is a high percentage winner and starts from a good post. (5) SAMIRA HANOVER has a terrific late kick, but also races well on the front. She hasn't been at her best and will need to rebound. (1) MARABOU draws the rail and faces an easier bunch. She likes to close and should be in a good position from the start.

Race 4

(6) TEX faces an easier bunch than what he's accustomed to. If he's put into the race, I like his chances. (7) WEATHER HANOVER qualified very well with a solid final frame. He'll make his 2014 debut and appears ready. (1) P L GYRO gets the rail to work with, has been knocking on the door in recent starts and has been excellent since arriving in the Campbell barn.

Race 5

(2) FLEXIBLE WOMAN closed very well last start in her seasonal debut. She draws nicely and can only improve off that effort. (4) MISS EVERYTHING was disappointing last week as the public's choice. She'll look to rebound from the same post. (5) FASHION GODDESS’S enjoys being put into the race, draws well and makes her second start of the season.

Race 6

(10) PARTY DONT STOP will have to overcome post 10, but appears to have the most speed in this class after last week's performance. (7) PITA PAN posted back-to-back qualifiers in strong fashion. He looks like he's ready to drop multiple seconds. (6) BIG SURF drops out of the Youthful and into this season. He faces an easier field and displayed the speed required last week.

Race 7

(1) YUCATAN went a big trip last week to finish a hard-closing third in his first start off the bench. He can only improve off that effort from a good post. (4) HES A SENSATION exploded in deep stretch last week to finish second. He has the speed and offered a high price last week. (2) ADVERSARY SEELSTER draws inside, comes out of the Moreau barn and is a good option for the triactor.

Race 8

(3) DREDYL HANOVER closed well last week from an outside post. He's blessed with the rail and should be better placed in this bottom class. (1) MANCHESTER HANOVER gets the rail and also closed well in his latest. A repeat effort makes him a top candidate. (2) SOUTHWIND WHISKI enjoys racing off a helmet, has the speed and should offer a price.

Race 9

(1) HIGHLAND TARTAN draws inside and faces an easier group than last week. He has the speed and likely will offer a low price. (4) TWOMICKEYTRIP captured a leg of this series last week and did so in a gritty effort. He's been racing very consistently this season. (6) ROYAL RECEPTION has been knocking on the door in recent starts, is versatile and comes out of McIntosh's barn.

Race 10

(8) BURLESQUE has been racing very well since arriving in the Nixon barn. She's been knocking on the door and is a top candidate in this bottom class. (3) VEGAS STRIP THREE has won three straight for trainer Farmer, draws inside and is has a terrific record over the past two seasons. (9) KATHERINE B is fresh off a win last week in the debut for trainer Robinson. She did all the work on the front and will now move onto this circuit and jump in class. She's on the improve and may offer a price.
