Woodbine Harness: Saturday 4/5 Analysis


Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: FORK (3rd)

Spot Play: MR BIG HEAD (7th)

Race 1

(5) OZZY OZZY is fresh off a win in his seasonal debut last week and certainly appears ready to jump in class. (1) OAKLEA VICTOR draws inside, comes from a top barn in Moreau and has a good record this season. (3) FLIGHT OF THE KIWI hasn't been at his best in recent weeks, but is capable of a turnaround effort. He's a threat with an inside post.

Race 2

(7) PUTMEINTOGO has won two straight, is versatile and gets Drury in the bike once again. (3) ITS NO SECRET draws well, is fresh off a win and remains at the same class. (3) D GS PESQUERO put forth a gritty effort last week and remains a top threat in here. She's versatile and went a tough trip last start.

Race 3

(2) FORK made a miscue last week, which he has a long history of doing. If he minds his manners, he looks like the best in here. (5) MOONTAN has been racing well all season despite no wins. He has the speed and is a good option for the exactor. (4) UP FRONT N CRAZY has been solid since arriving in the Pereira barn. He's climbed the ladder and proves he can handle a tougher group.

Race 4

(1) DRAIN DADDY draws inside, gets Davis, Jr. in the bike and drops in class. (8) UP THE CREDIT put forth a solid effort last start. A repeat effort makes him a top candidate. (9) BROADIES SONG qualified very strong last week and may offer a fair price. He has the speed and trainer in his favour.

Race 5

(2) DONAU went a big mile last week on the front, before fading to fourth. Drury takes over the lines, which leads me to put him on top. (7) COOL ROCK has a patented late kick and if positioned well during the mile, he's a big contender as he drops in class. (8) WAZZUP WAZZUP gets significant class relief and should be much more competitive in here.

Race 6

(3) SOMBRERO HALL has been racing well at this level and now adds lasix. Maybe that's the difference maker. (2) STRIKING LINDSEY draws inside and raced very well in his latest. He's versatile with back class. (5) POWER MOVE drops in class, gets Waples back in the bike and may offer a price.

Race 7

(8) MR BIG HEAD went a solid time last week at a higher level and with a repeat performance, he's a good option. He has excellent gate-speed and may offer a price. (9) DAPPER DENZIL exploded off cover last week for MacLean en route to victory. He faces many of the same rivals again in here. (4) GENESEE is always a threat at this level. He draws well and has only missed the board once this season.

Race 8

(4) ANDERLECHT has tons of back class in his favour and he drops in class. (5) THEPANINSULAHOTEL also drops in class, is versatile and gets Christoforou back in the bike. (7) CHAMPAGNE PHIL has been racing very well this season and has hit the board four of his last five starts.

Race 9

(4) MOPEY COREY has terrific gate-speed, is classified accordingly and is a high percentage winner over the past two years. (10) UNABATING has been racing very well in his two starts this season and went a tough trip last week. He has gate-speed and comes from a top barn. (9) LEXUS HEILOS had a good effort a few back and could land a share.

Race 10

(7) COUGAR HALL is fresh off a season-best score and has been racing at his best. He'll offer a low price in this field. (2) TOP GEAR draws inside, has been racing very competitively and hasn't missed the board in his last three. (3) MACHAL JORDAN has been racing at his best in recent weeks at a high price. He draws well and enjoys racing off a helmet.

Race 11

(3) IDEAL RACE draws inside, just missed last start and has tons of back class. (4) BETTER GET READY has hit the board in three of his last four and comes from a very high percentage barn. (9) EVENIN OF PLEASURE has the speed, is versatile and should offer a price. He'll look for a trip.
