Woodbine Harness: Saturday 11/1 analysis




Race 1

(4) MEA LILLEY MARK was the favorite last week and had to settle for third in this class. (1) WANNA ROCK N ROLL draws the rail for the second straight week for trainer Shawn Robinson. (6) J HIGH has been parked the entire mile in each of her last two starts and three of her last four. She draws a favorable post this week and Henry will likely take advantage of that.

Race 2

(2) REGAL SON debuted for new trainer Don Lindsey two starts back and immediately found the wire first in 1:52. (6) HOPE FOR BADLANDS didn’t receive a check last week, but still went a speedy effort to be timed in 1:51 4/5. (8) FALCON JUSTICE will need to overcome post eight in this dash, but went a solid mile last week to finish second.

Race 3

(7) BODY BALANCE has posted back-to-back qualifiers and appears ready for this contest following some time away from the track. (9) STRONG HOPE hasn’t been racing at his best for many weeks and is due for a strong performance. (3) FANTASTIC FLIRT has a good record this season and raced strong last week to finish fourth from a post four begin.

Race 4

(7) EVEIL DUN CHAMPION is fresh off back-to-back wins and will now debut for new trainer in Corey Johnson. (8) ARAMBLIN HANOVER is a must use for the exactor based on his recent efforts. (4) IDEAL MAGIC has been a fringe player at this level for many weeks, but is capable of stepping up and being a part of the triactor.

Race 5

(3) DAYLON MAGICIAN draws inside, has terrific gate speed and has posted back-to-back wins at this level just a few weeks ago. (9) INTIMIDATE has posted a pair of qualifying events leading up to tonight’s dash for trainer Luc Blais. (1) WHISKEY TAX draws the rail and has been a main threat in this class for many weeks.

Race 6

(3) IN COMMANDO recently had some time off from the track and debuted last week with a winning effort at 4-1 for Chris Christoforou and trainer Don Lindsey. (10) ALEXAS JACKPOT raced very strong last week from an outside post considering it was his first start off the shelf. (9) THUNDER STEELER went a tough journey last week as the five-year-old was parked the entire mile through heavy fractions.

Race 7

(1) SAMIRA HANOVER raced terrific last week to finish third considering it was her first start back after having a few months off. (10) PAPER BACKED LINDY debuted for new trainer Tony Montini last week and the gelding made a miscue behind the gate. (3) KINETIC KING has developed a terrific late kick for Mayotte and the four-year-old draws inside in tonight.

Race 8

(5) THEPANINSULAHOTEL is a back class pacer with over $500K banked in his career and just missed last week while doing all the work on the front end. (1) REAL ROCKER draws inside and has been a consistent threat in this class over the past month. (3) UFSDRAGON ROCKET disappointed last week as the favorite in this class and will look for redemption.

Race 9

(2) BUCKAROO has an explosive late kick at the end of the mile that can’t be overlooked. (3) NAKED CITY will begin from a post three start tonight and has been a main threat in this class for many weeks. (1) SURPRISE HANOVER will debut for new trainer Cheryl Bloomfield tonight and this colt has a lot of upside tonight.

Race 10

(4) SHAMBALLA comes out of the Preferred level and drops into this softer class for trainer/driver Rick Zeron. (5) CAMAES FELLOW advanced into the Preferred class last week following a claim by trainer/co-owner Carmen Auciello. (9) SING FOR ME GEORGE has been racing very consistently as of late.

Race 11

(2) LEAFS AND WINGS will get my top selection in this wide-open tilt for trainer Mike Rogers. (4) MONTE CRISTO debuted for new trainer Stephane Larocque last week following a purchase at the Fall Extravaganza Sale a few weeks ago. (6) ARTHUR comes from the Carmen Auciello barn and has been racing much better as of late.
