Woodbine Harness: Monday 5/19 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: BET YA (4th)


Race 1

(9) VERDI comes out of the Tie Silk series and closed very well to finish fourth. He drops in class and comes out of Bax's barn. (6) LADY ANN THE CASH qualified well, comes out of the McIntosh barn and looks like a top threat. (8) FINAL FANTASY qualified well and showed the speed needed last season. He may offer a fair price.

Race 2

(4) SWISS BANK HANOVER draws well once again, has excellent gate-speed and is due for his first win of the season. (7) MACHS BOY closed very well in his last two starts. If he's better placed, he's got a license to improve. (8) PEMBROKE SCORPIO will have to overcome the outside, but he moves into the McNair barn and moves onto this circuit.

Race 3

(1) CLASSIC MARTINE gets the rail, has won both her starts this season, including a very impressive effort in her latest. (2) CHARMED LIFE went a monster mile last week at the Preferred level and will look to repeat. (5) ROCKIN WITH DEWEY has an excellent record this season and is a logical option for the traictor.

Race 4

(1) BET YA gets the rail, hasn't missed the board in two career starts and is ready to win at this maiden level. (2) SAM closed very well last week in her first start of the season. She draws much better and should improve off last start. (8) TYMAL LUCKYNPINK has excellent gate-speed and is fresh off a convincing score at Western Fair. She may provide a fair price and is expected to be put in the race.

Race 5

(10) WHICHAMACALLIT will have to overcome post 10, but he went undefeated in two starts last season and qualified very strong this season. (9) HITCHIN A RIDE romped in his qualifier, comes from a top trotting barn and appears ready. (8) LAUGHING KING comes from the Baillargeon barn, drops in class and adds lasix.

Race 6

(6) DOCS HOSS got away too far back last week and if closer to the pace, he's a prime threat. He won two back at this class and is always competitive at this level. (2) MR BIG HEAD returns to the Pentlands barn, draws inside and has hit the board in each of his last two. (1) HONOR BOY gets the rail and moves into the Moreau barn.

Race 7

(2) SMACK TALK won in 1:50 4/5 last season as a rookie and is at a very comfortable class. (8) HUNCH MAN raced very well considering it was his first start of the season last week, is versatile and should improve. (7) OK GALAHAD moves into the Menary barn, gets Jamieson in the bike and has upset potential.

Race 8

(1) POLK DOT HANOVER gets the rail, just missed last week at this level and is due for her first win of the season. (3) RIVETING also draws well, closed very strong last week and should be closer to the front. (8) KISS ME OR NOT has hit the board in three of her last four and likely will offer a price once again.

Race 9

(2) BEE A MAGICIAN went 17-for-17 last season and posted two strong qualifiers. (6) PERFECT ALLIANCE is a top threat for the top spot after remaining undefeated this season. (4) BAX OF LIFE is fresh off a win on this circuit, has the speed and likely will race from behind.

Race 10

(3) DELCREST JULIAN romped last week and can handle the class jump with an inside post. (7) ROLLS BLUE CHIP went a speedy time last week and should be even more competitive in his second start of the season. (9) SAMIRA HANOVER has shown much improvement lately. That likely will continue and puts her in triactor contention as she races against the boys once again.

Race 11

(4) MAJOR TRICK qualified strong both times, draws inside and enjoyed a very successful 2013 rookie campaign. (1) MARCO DE VIE shows the speed, comes out of the Wallace barn and was timed in 1:50 4/5 last week. (7) ALWAYS THERE showed a terrific qualifier, may offer a fair price and poses as a top candidate in his first start of the season.
