Woodbine Harness: Saturday 4/19 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: SAN PAIL (9th)

Spot Play: MEGO MOSS (3rd)

Race 1

(10) REAL ROCKER went a big trip in his latest and even with a post 10 start, he looks to be the horse to beat. (5) GENESEE can't be counted out in this class as he's been the picture of consistency this season. (4) BOKNOWS MOMNGRANNY went a big mile in the debut for trainer McKinnon and is certainly on his game.

Race 2

(1) CHARMED LIFE posted a strong qualifier in her latest for new trainer Menary. She draws well and had a terrific season last year. (7) THANKYOUKESSEL finished his year off strong last year and qualified very well in his latest. He's versatile and enjoys being put in the race. (8) WHEELING N DEALIN showed a much improved qualifier last week compared to the week prior. He's versatile and will make his first start for trainer Blais.

Race 3

(3) MEGO MOSS draws inside, closed very well last week and is capable of the minor upset. (8) HLDONTGHTOYURDRMS has tasted defeat in his last two as the favourite. He'll likely be the favourite once again, but I choose to play against him. (4) CROSBYS CLAM BAKE has been racing very well lately and closed strong last start. He's a top choice for the triactor.

Race 4

(2) GRIN FOR MONEY gets post and class relief and has a patented late kick. He has the speed and back class in his favour. (4) WAZZUP WAZZUP drops in class, comes out of the Johnson barn and was timed in 1:50 1/5 in his latest. (5) BETTER GET READY comes from a high percentage trainer, is racing at his best and is certainly capable of the class jump.

Race 5

(7) INTENSE AMERICA makes her second start of the campaign and gets major class relief. (2) HOUSE OF CASH draws inside, is versatile and has the speed needed for this class. He should offer a price. (1) SANTO DOMINGO gets much needed post reelif and shouldn't be too far back like in his last two.

Race 6

(4) MACHAL JORDAN has been racing at his best lately and with a drop in class and post relief, he should be a top threat. (1) NICKLE BAG gets the rail, is versatile and retains the services of Hudon in the bike. (5) DADDY WARBUCKS is a good option for the traictor. He's hit the board in three of his last four starts with solid final frames.

Race 7

(4) OZZY OZZY used a :27 final quarter last week to seal the win. A repeat effort makes him a top threat. (2) FORK draws inside and if he minds his manners, he's proven to be a top candidate for this level. (7) ORDER BY COMMANDER is versatile, comes out of the Puddy barn and has a good record this season.

Race 8

(3) THE REV snuck up the inside last week en route to victory. He draws inside again and is capable of a repeat for team McNair. (1) REB THE RAIDER has been a perfect two-for-two since arriving in the Bourassa barn. This will be his toughest test. (5) YUCATAN was flat at the end of the mile last week as the heavy favourite. He'll look for a better effort this week.

Race 9

(2) SAN PAIL has posted two winning qualifiers in good form and looks like the best in here with his champion status. (5) SLIP INTO GLIDE has a terrific late kick and is positioned well, he's a top threat in here. (7) NOWUCIT NOWUDONT is fresh off a win, comes out of the Johnson barn and may offer a price.

Race 10

(3) JENNA CASIMIR has been racing at her best recently, is fresh off a win and remains at the same level. (2) FOOLISH MIND has hit the board in four of her last five starts and also remains in this class. (9) MACHET ROCKET won last week at this level and may offer a price from the outside post.

Race 11

(9) CLASSIC GENT has terrific gate-speed, drops in class and has won at a higher level already this year. (7) SECRETSOFTHEKNIGHT comes out of the McNair barn, is versatile and raced very well last week in this class. (1) CLIC K almost got the job done last week, but tired late. He draws well once again and comes from Wallace's barn.
