Race 4 - $75,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: CAMAES FELLOW (2nd)

Spot Play: COOL ROCK (8th)

Race 1

(3) SHADOW BARAN draws inside, comes out of Johnson's barn and finished second in this class last week. He's got a terrific record and will offer a low price. (5) DUKE DID IT has proven to be a threat in this class and draws well once again. He's been consistent this year and put forth a good effort in his latest. (2) BARE NECESSITY comes out of Moreau's barn, draws the two-hole and won at this level three starts ago.

Race 2

(5) CAMAES FELLOW hasn't been worse than second in each of his last three starts in this class, including two wins. He appears to be the horse to beat. (6) FRANCESCHETTI has come a long way in a short period. He set a new career best last start with a sizzling time and final quarter. (4) PISTON BROKE has been the picture of consistency lately and closes very well. He's a good option for the triactor.

Race 3

(4) WHIPLASH draws well and won his last two of three starts in this class. He'll likely be the favourite or close to it. (6) JUSTALITTLEFASTER moves back into a claimer, which he won at two starts ago. He's hit the board in five of his last six starts. (9) GUNGA WIN moves into the Lalonde barn, which is an angle I'm playing. He's put in the same class and is capable of overcoming the outside.

Race 4

(4) THEPANINSULAHOTEL gets major class relief and that's the main reason for my selection. He's a classy veteran and is able to handle this group. (5) WINNING DREAM has been racing much better in his last two and was timed in 1:50 3/5 last start. A repeat effort makes him a top threat once again. (2) MIRAMONTMAN draws inside and was hard-used throughout the mile last start. With a cleaner trip, he's very capable in this field.

Race 5

(7) ZEUS LIGHTNING gets significant class relief. The last time he was at this level he was a winner. (1) MARABOU gets the rail and has won two straight. He did all the work on the front in his last two and the tactics will likely be used once again. (3) SIM BROWN lit up the tote board last week with a new career best. A repeat effort makes him a top threat in here.

Race 6

(7) GENESEE moves up in class after a convincing win in his latest. He comes from Moreau's barn and will offer little value. (1) AVATARTIST has won two straight, gets the rail and also will get a lot of attention in here. (6) CONORS CONCORD ships north onto this circuit and has been racing very consistently south of the border. He has the speed and is a good option for the triactor.

Race 7

(1) NORTHERN SPARK draws the rail and went a tough trip in his latest. He should get a much cleaner trip in here. (3) EXCUSE ME PLEASE raced well last week in the debut of new trainer Cherwaiko. He closed well and is capable once again in here. (8) NATURAL FORCES has hit the board in five of his last six starts. He's very versatile and comes from a high percentage barn.

Race 8

(6) COOL ROCK draws inside and has a patented closing kick. If he's within race turning for home, he's a good candidate. (1) KINDLY POET gets the rail and is approaching $1 million in earnings. He's a classy veteran and fresh off a win. (10) BOLD DECISION has a good record this season, comes from a top barn and hit the board in this class last week. He'll provide a price and enjoys being put in the race.

Race 9

(8) CHUCKALO CADEN enjoys leaving the gate, has a good record this season and has hit the board in two of his last three starts. (4) JOSEPH GERARD draws well and gets class relief. He has the speed for this bottom level. (9) O U GUS is very versatile, but needs a trip. He draws outside and will provide a fair price.

Race 10

(7) HOPE FOR PADDY has been racing at her best in recent starts. She's been closing very well and a short field only increases her chances. (3) RUB N TUG draws well and has been very consistent this season. She enjoys being put into the race and just missed last week. (2) DOCS HOPE draws inside and hasn't missed the board in her last four starts. She's fresh off a win in this class and may provide a fair price.

Race 11

(4) ASLAN draws well and closed very well last week. He remains at the same class, comes out of O'Sullivan's barn and a top threat. (6) CHAMPAGNE PHIL got a perfect, two-hole trip last week en route to victory. He has the speed and likely will get another aggressive steer from MacDonald. (3) REAL ROCKER draws inside and makes the debut for new trainer Johnson. That's the main reason for my selection.

Race 12

(1) DRAIN DADDY got a good trip last week en route to a second place finish. He gets Jamieson back in the bike and will offer a low price. (8) WORLD AWAY will make his fourth start off the shelf and drops in class. He has the speed and hopefully will be put into the race this week. (3) JOHNNY COME LATELY draws well and drops in class. He has the speed and should benefit off the class drop.
