Woodbine Harness: Saturday 4/26 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: NATIONAL DEBT (3rd)

Spot Play: NOBLE FLIGHT (4th)

Race 1

(7) ADVERSARY SEELSTER is fresh off a win, comes out of Moreau's barn and celebrated a new lifetime best last start. (3) SUNNY BEACH DAY went his biggest mile of his career last week and will look for a repeat. He never looked so good in his effort last week. (6) HOPIESDRAGNINTHEDO has been racing at his best, comes out of Auciello's barn and may offer a fair price.

Race 2

(2) ROCKYS FIRST has the speed, back class and faces an easier bunch this week. (9) INTENSE AMERICA was the favourite last week and failed to win. She's worth a look again at the same level. (6) QUIT SMOKING NOW draws well, drops in class and went a speedy mile in his latest.

Race 3

(7) NATIONAL DEBT is undefeated in his career and is the horse to beat. (8) ACCOUNT ROLLOVER has a terrific record this season, comes from the McIntosh barn and is a top threat in here. (5) ROGER MACH EM went a big trip last week en route to victory at high odds. He draws better this week and is a good option for the triactor.

Race 4

(5) NOBLE FLIGHT has won two of three starts this season, moves up in class, but draws well and certainly has the speed. (1) TURBO DONATO comes from team Baillargeon, gets the rail and continues to race well since the addition of lasix. (2) RAMZAM draws inside, has been racing at his best this season and is certainly capable of the class jump.

Race 5

(8) NICKLE BAG has gone some big trips lately and has been racing at his best. He gets class relief in here and likely will offer a low price. (4) DAPPER DUDE posted two solid qualifiers, draws inside and comes out of the McIntosh camp. (2) ALEXIE MATTOSIE draws inside, drops in class and has the back class.

Race 6

(5) REAL ROCKER remains at the same level and has won two of his last three. (4) GENESEE is always a top threat at his level and has been the picture of consistency this season. (8) JACS SPADE will have to overcome the outside, won at this level last week and has a solid record this season.

Race 7

(7) WEST SIDE STORY has a terrific record in his career and put forth a convincing win in his latest. (3) HLDONTHTTOYURDRMS likely will be the favourite and due for an off-the-pace trip. He has the speed and draws well. (4) CROSBYS CLAM BAKE raced very well last start, draws inside and comes out of the Wallace barn.

Race 8

(9) CHARMED LIFE was spectacular in her season debut last week. She can only improve off that effort and was a wrapped-up winner. (1) INTIMIDATE gets the rail, won seven of nine last year and is a past Breeders Crown champion. (5) SLIP INTO GLIDE won at this level in his latest, but faces a tougher bunch. He's versatile and a logical choice for the traictor.

Race 9

(5) LIGHTS GO OUT has won three of her last four and remains at the same level. (9) WILDCAT HANNA was an easy winner in her latest and moves up in class. The addition of lasix has appeared to help. (2) MISS POPPYCOCK draws inside, comes out of Brethour's barn and has been much better in her last two.

Race 10

(4) THINKING OUT LOUD raced very well last week in his season debut. He closed well to finish third and can only be better this week. (3) MACHAL JORDAN has been racing at his best this season, draws inside and went a big trip last week. (6) MODERN LEGEND got the monkey off his back last week with a speedy win. He's capable again in here as he jumps in class.

Race 11

(3) DONAU gets post relief and drops in class to where he won at two back. (4) LUCKY TERROR drops in class, gets post relief and may offer a fair price. (6) WORLD AWAY finished third last week at a higher level. He draws well in here and has back class in his favour.
