Woodbine Harness: Saturday 3/22 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick 4 Pool



Race 1

(8) D GS PESQUERO has been racing very consistently at this level and comes from top connections. (6) TRUE REFLECTION suffered a first-over grind last week and that's not her style. She won at this class two back and draws well. (2) FOOLISH MIND has won two straight, including a 10-1 upset last week at this level. She may still offer a price.

Race 2

(3) SING FOR ME GEORGE went a ground-saving trip last week in his return. He drops in class and should get an aggressive steer. (2) DONAU draws inside and made a miscue last week. That was very uncharacteristic of him so I'll try him again. (7) WORLD AWAY drops in class, has the speed for this level and back class in his favour.

Race 3

(9) NORTHERN SPARK comes out of the Johnson barn, is a much better horse than he's been showing and is at the bottom level. (10) MAGIC WILL WORK is versatile and comes from the Auciello camp. He'll likely get an aggressive steer with MacDonald aboard. (8) IGOTTOKEEPONMOVING went to the back last week and wasn't a factor. With a clean trip, he's very capable.

Race 4

(2) J C ONTHEBEACH draws inside and has been a constant threat at this level for many weeks. (8) HES A SENSATION tends to be inconsistent, but he drops in class and has a patented late kick. (6) BILBO HANOVER is very versatile, has the speed and also drops in class.

Race 5

(8) THE ONLY ONE won at this level last week as the favourite. He'll look to double up from the outside. (5) UP FRONT N CRAZY draws well and has been knocking on the door in the past three weeks. (6) FORK is a coin toss. If he minds his manners and is put into the race, I like his chances. Otherwise, I don't.

Race 6

(5) ALEXIE MATTOSIE ships back from The Meadowlands after competing against Golden Receiver and Duvoto Hanover. He should be able to handle this group. (3) CHAMPAGNE PHIL draws inside, has excellent gate-speed and continues to impress at a high level. (8) JOSHUA MY BOY comes out of the Vanderkemp barn and has been a consistent threat this season.

Race 7

(2) TALBOTCREEK JEWELY draws inside, drops in class and won at this level three back. This is a wide-open tilt so expect a price. (1) QUIT SMOKING NOW gets the rail and is fresh off a win at the bottom class. (8) O U SEXY GUY has hit the board in each of his last two starts. He has a patented closing kick and quick fractions only help.

Race 8

(3) CASIMIR JITTERBUG draws inside and is a much better horse than he's been showing. He drops in class again and is a top threat. (8) STONEBRIDGE ON ICE won at this class last week in gate-to-wire fashion. The veteran will aim for a repeat from the outside. (5) BROCKS FORTUNE comes from a high percentage barn and enjoys being put in the race. He's a good option for the triactor.

Race 9

(8) MCKINNEY finished second in the Preferred last week and with no Apprentice Hanover racing, he looks like the next best. (6) WAZZUP WAZZUP has been racing very well since arriving in the Johnson barn. He's certainly capable in this short field. (5) IN COMMANDO might offer a price, but he's been racing very well and climbing the ranks as of late. He has a good record this season and has been racing at his best.

Race 10

(8) BLENDED WHISKEY draws outside for the third straight week. He enjoys being raced near the front and hasn't been worse than second in his last six. (3) BIG BAY POINT has tons of back class to him, draws well and enjoys being put into the race. (7) DAPPER DENZIL likely will offer a price, but won at this level two back and is a good option to spice up the triactor.

Race 11

(1) BURNING SHORE gets the rail and has been knocking on the door in his last two starts. (2) POUVOIS DUHARAS draws inside again and faded on the front last week. He has the speed for this bottom level, but will need the trip. (7) CLIC K comes out of the Wallace barn and raced very well last start. He closed well and should offer a price in the finale.
