Woodbine Harness: Saturday 11/2 Analysis


Race 4 - $75,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: FRISKY MAGIC (9th)

Spot Play: SEA HARRIER (8th)

Race 1

(6) JAC SPADE closed like a freight train last week from tenth-to-second. If he's closer to the pace this week, he's a top contender. (1) NOTHINGBUTMACH gets the rail and has hit the board in each of his last two starts. He comes out of Montini's barn and is a good option in here. (10) DUKE DID IT was hard used last week and resulted in a tenth place finish. He'll have to overcome the outside, but has been racing very well prior to last start.

Race 2

(7) NORTHERN SPARK drops in class and that's the main reason for my selection. He has a good record this season and Fellows' barn has been much better in recent weeks. (8) WHEELS recently moved into the Menary barn and has showed an improved effort. I think he'll be even better this week at the bottom level. (2) THE MECHANIC closed very well last start to finish third. He draws well again, has the speed and may provide a price.

Race 3

(7) AQUANILLA has a terrific record this season and remains at this bottom level. He's been racing very well and is due for a win at this class. (1) O U GUS finished second in here last start and gets post one. He's versatile and has back class. (2) P L FANTASTIC draws inside and comes out of the Baillargeon barn. He dropped in class last week and finished third.

Race 4

(3) MAJOR HOTTIE has a lot of back class to him and he drops in class. He draws inside and will get a lot of attention. (6) ROETHBLISSBERGER has a good record this season and enjoys being put into the race. He usually provides a price and comes out of Puddy's barn. (9) HILARIOUS HALO won last week and now moves up in class. He's recently entered the Fellows' barn and is capable of climbing the ladder.

Race 5

(1) CREAMPUFF MACDADDY comes out of Maxwell's barn, draws inside and certainly has the speed to win this contest. (9) ROLLS BLUE CHIP has hit the board in two of his last three starts and comes from a top trotting barn. He has the speed along with good gate speed. (8) HLDONTGHTTOYURDRMS comes out of the Johnson barn, has a good record this season and enjoys being put into the race.

Race 6

(1) FRIDAYNIGHTFLIGHT gets the rail, won last start and has a consistent record all season. (9) RED BUGLER has been the picture of consistency. He's hit the board in seven of eight starts this season. (8) GRIN FOR MONEY closed very well last week and shows terrific final quarter speed. He's always a threat in this class and hopefully is positioned well.

Race 7

(3) SPARKY MARK comes out of the Preferred and gets major class relief. He's a classy veteran, draws inside and will likely be the favourite. (5) PISTON BROKE has finished second in each of his last three starts in this class. (4) ALEXIE MATTOSIE finally got the monkey off his back last week with a win. He moves up in class, but has back class and good starting position in his favour.

Race 8

(2) SEA HARRIER draws inside and is capable of pulling off the victory and returning a price. He'll need to be put into the race early. (8) GRANTOR HANOVER won last week and moves up in class. He comes out of McNair's barn and has the speed. (9) TALBOTCREEK ARMANI has been providing a high price and has been knocking on the door. He's a good option for the triactor to spice up the payout.

Race 9

(5) FRISKY MAGIC has won four straight, comes out of Henriksen's barn and likely will be the favourite again. (4) HAMDALLA moves back to this circuit and is certainly capable. He shows the speed, draws well and enjoys racing off a helmet. (6) WIND STROLL has only missed the board twice from nine starts this season. She comes from a top trotting barn and was an easy winner last week.

Race 10

(1) MODERN LEGEND draws inside and raced tremendous in his Breeders Crown final. He's in top form right now and will offer a low price. (5) CAMAES FELLOW is always a top threat in this class and was pressured throughout the mile last week. He draws the same post and will likely be driven the same way. (8) ELLIS PARK picked up the pieces last week and made the climb to win at the highest level on this circuit. It may have been his coming out party as a top free-for-all pacer on this circuit.

Race 11

(2) COUGAR HALL gets post two, gets Jamieson in the bike and drops in class. He adds lasix and has a high winning record this season. (1) MCKINNEY won last week at this level and once again draws well. He comes out of Johnson's barn and is a good option for the exactor. (3) BROCKS FORTUNE has the speed and will likely offer a price. He draws well, comes out of Austin's barn and will need a trip.

Race 12

(6) MYSTICIAN gets significant class relief as he drops to the bottom level. He'll be the favoruite and deserves to be with his back class. (10) SHIPPS XPECTANCY will have to overcome post 10, but has terrific gate-speed and comes from McMaster's barn. He has a good record this season and always a threat in this class. (3) LENNON BLUE CHIP draws well and comes out of Moreau's barn. He gets both class and post relief.
